I’m gettin’ published! November 24, 2009

Just received word this week that two of my photos have been chosen for the upcoming issue of Camas magazine.

From the site:

Camas is a testimonial to the raw, on-the-ground power that continues to rise out of Montana. Not only is there the fine tradition of western writing rooted in this part of the country, but it is growing, stretching, taking more risks, and bearing a greater diversity of voices. I find the words of these students and other writers deeply inspiring. They carry our imagination forward in both idealism and longing, what all readers yearn to find.”

— Terry Tempest Williams

Sort of funny that I’m submitting photos and not writing, but I’m excited to be featured. I’ll post the photos here once the issue is published.

I just returned from a bachelorette/bridal shower weekend with friends, one of whom shared this video on Friday night. We proceeded to watch it throughout the weekend, over and over, learning the signs and laughing at “moving my hips like yeah.” And it made me smile every time, so I contemplated sharing it here – and then I heard on the radio this morning that today is Miley Cyrus’ birthday. Kismet.

More on California soon.

Anyone else getting really excited for Thanksgiving?

After months of feeling the pull of wanderlust, I’m taking advantage of the Veteran’s Day holiday this week and am heading to California to see my dear friend in Berkeley. We’re going to hit up San Francisco’s Mission District for burritos, Sonoma for wine tasting, and take a drive along the California coast. We have plans for the ethnic food I’ve so been craving (maybe Indian? Ethiopian? Ghanaian? who knows?!) and a moment (or many) of indulging my love for all things Swedish at both H&M and IKEA. I can’t wait.

Photo-taking awaits. For once I’ll have something new and exciting to post to the blog. More soon!
