The Times That Were

With it being my very last semester of college, I decided to take a few classes simply because they sounded interesting. This was a decision that definitely payed off. In one of my history classes we have been reading about some local history, in particular, about the theater where I took this photo. It was built in the early 1900's and was one of the theaters built by Keith and and Albee across the U.S., and it still holds all of it's charm. This reading has prompted some exploring of my own. I feel like I am really discovering places that I didn't even know existed. I just wish that it was actually warm so I could go out and go exploring. I can't wait until it warms up so I can head out. I am making one of my goals for the summer, and the coming year, to explore the city around me. I can't wait to see what I will discover.

The Blessing That Is Creative Friends

I've been thinking lately of how much more interesting your life is when you have creative friends. I love that I have things all around my room that my friends made me and I love our adventures together. I've been thinking about this for a while now, but tonight felt like a perfect example of that. I mean who else would spend a night eating pizza and pie (oh my word the pie!), talking indie films, and making terrariums with me. Tonight my friends Emily and Janessa came over and we got about to making terrariums. Emily is doing a project this year where she learns one new thing every week, and this week it was my turn to show her all things terrarium. There is a full DIY over at her blog if you are interested in the tutorial. I love having creative friends and I look forward to all of the adventures yet to come.
On an unrelated note...they both have blogs now and I could not be more thrilled that I am not the only one that takes copious amounts of photographs when we are out in public now. Two of these photos here I nabbed from Emily's blog and the other is from my Instagram. It features the finished results. Mine is the one on the far right.
