📣 So I had this whole outfit planned and then realized, I probably should do my hair how I literally look 110% of the time, a random topknot 😅…Soo…hey old friends & new friends, its Alora, and its random fact friday...
➕ I have a million gray hairs, ever since I was 12, my grandma told me it was a Native American thing and so I never questioned it. 🤷🏽♀️
➕ I actually am the LAZIEST person when it comes to getting ready 👀, I just put creme in my hair, and mix outfits, usually takes me 10 minutes to get out the door. 💃🏽✨
➕ When I was younger, I bought a typewriter 🖨 because of my favorite movie, “Harriet the Spy” and knew I was going to be a famous writer someday 🤣
➕ In high school, if I ran out of scrunchies, I used pencils ✏️ as hair chopsticks, and I’m about to go back to that life lol.
If you made it this far, 👋🏼🤣 HIGH FLIPPIN FIVE!!💥Tell me something random about you cuz, I mean this is so fun! 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼
Waking up to the weekend like ✨
Dreamy mornings overlooking Lago de Atitlan via @bellamvk #lushatitlan

I delivered my Utah gallery yesterday and this is what Timi wrote back: "Our engagement photos are a dream!! I seriously could not have even imagined they'd be this gorgeous. I remember that morning like it was yesterday because it was so much fun and an experience I'll never forget. You made that happen and I cannot thank you enough for turning it into a lasting memory that we can look back on."⠀
I love it on so many levels, because photos are not the end goal believe it or not. Photos are there to remind us of amazing memories and I think engagement session should be just that - memories of that magical season full of hopes and passion as two people embark on an adventure together.
Yesterday I ordered my first pair of glasses and holy mama, are they ever expensive. But oooooh baby, do I ever look like a hipster grandma in them.
Respark the soul and rebuild the energy.
Happy Friday friends! That butt squeeze though 😏😂 ...and hey, anybody else want to jet off to the mountains and get engaged, or married, or elope, or just have their picture taken and need a photographer? I volunteer as tribute 🙋🏻♀️🤣
Fridays, Saturdays .... Mondays .... Everyday .... should start with mornings by the lake!
“The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.”
- Alexander Supertramp

5 Stages of Grief: Depression/Sadness: Grief is Like War
Grief is like war. There are times where you are fighting like hell to survive, warring with yourself. There are times where you will say or do almost anything to stay alive. There are times of shame and of mourning. There may even be times of hiding or denying the situation you are in. But, there are also times of peace, times of hope, and times of rest for the spirit. Next week we will delve into DENIAL. What does grief look like to you?
They say people in your life are seasons & everything that happens is for a reason.
These two farmer dream boats have an anniversary coming up!! This was such a day. We did morning chores, and wandered through the largest patch of Bee Balm I’ve ever seen, and then we lost Rachel in the forest, but only for a few moments, and they raised their own wedding pig, and fed me the most amazing baba ganoush I’ve ever had (been chasing that dragon ever since.) I love seeing their lives expand endlessly even if just from this tiny box. Want to see too? Follow along at @scrumblewoodfarm
is only for you super tough cookies, bc it is a gazillion times more real.
Good thing is their faces didn’t get stuck like this.
Happy faces make me happy 💕
