today is march first.

This week, I didn't workout. This week, I ate a pint of Ben and Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie ice-cream and enjoyed the season premiere of Psych. This week I ran around like a crazy person from this job, to this errand, to this Fedex store (I went twice). This week I enjoyed life. And of course, I was preparing for this day, the blog relaunch. *cue fireworks* 

This month, with less social media, with no blogging, has been a refreshing break for me. I realized I got so caught up with "living vicariously through the Internet" that I started to forget that my "real" life is wonderful and beautiful and SO WORTH FORGETTING EVERYTHING ELSE FOR. It's like a punch in the gut - blogging, photography, the Internet, it doesn't hold a candle to the real and precious moments that fly by when you're not looking. I really don't like being clichΓ© or saying what photographers are "supposed" to say. But when it's true, you gotta say it. All that being said, it is GOOD to be back. Photography is my passion. I have such a heart for it, that being back into taking pictures and blogging and being part of this community makes me glad.

So hello everyone. My name is Ellie, and I am a storyteller. Through pictures, through words, through my life. Welcome to my blog, and I hope you stay around a while. :)











P.S. Thank you all for being patient. Thank you all for your kind messages + encouraging words. Thank you for everything. I have a lot of exciting things coming up. I'm excited to share them with you. Also, what do you all think of the new design? It's not completely finished, but I'm excited about the direction it's heading in. :)
