Irma Gerd

Hey guys,

It's been a while since I've sat down and focused my thoughts long enough to formulate another blog post. Hurricane Irma rolled through a few days ago which was not fun at all. However; sitting in front of the window left me starstruck by mother nature's power as the winds gusted by...and than it would abruptly stop for a few moments. Followed by another band. At one point my parents, sister and I were all sitting in the hallway once a tornado alert popped up on all of our phones. In efforts to relax myself, I drowned out the hissing winds from beyond the walls and popped in my earbuds. Through my meditation music and deep breathing, I heard my sister hysterically laughing. I open my eyes and looking back at me, are my mom and dad sitting across the hall, wearing their bike helmets. hahaha


Thankfully the storm rolled through without taking our power. The worst damage we received was a leak in the ceiling above our tv room, but it could have been much worse.

In other news, I'm growing my hair out!

Small Victories!

Hey guys.

How is it already August? This year has flown by (thank goodness). I'd be lying if I said this year was exciting and action-packed...but 2017 has been incredibly healing. I'm making moves to continue turning those pages, which will lead to the next chapter of my life. Some chapters aren't meant to be read aloud and that's completely okay.

So guess what? I have exciting news!!

Last week I shipped out six Garden of Weeden prints to different Dispensaries around the country.


Two to Cali, two to Colorado and two to Vegas. On Saturday, one of the employees at the Denver Dispensary reached out, to inform me that they framed and hung the drawing in their lobby area! They also hung the handwritten note and a business card next to the drawing! AHHH


I live for these moments. :) Moments that manifest from working hard, reaching out to the unknown and receiving praise and positivity. Creating something yourself, from the ground up and seeing little achievements, is so gratifying. 2017 has also taught me to not give up, even when you want to throw the flag in and call it quits. There's no other option, but to silently win.


Michelle has already been in contact with new Au Pair jobs from Hawaii, Colorado, Australia, Canada, etc. The goal is to photograph all the shoots needed for 2018 when she returns from New Zealand and before she leaves again on her new adventure. I'm determined to pump out 25 new pieces for 2018, allotting me two weeks for each one. 

I'm learning that success takes ample amount of work and the more pieces I have in the Series, the more likely it will reach the masses and take off. If everything goes to plan, this series will grow to 55 pieces by the end of next year!! Than it's off to Hawaii to start my next chapter, titled Aloha


Much Love.
