Happy Spring. Today is the first official day of spring! This past week has been beyond beautiful. The cool weather will be gone in a matter of weeks as spring seems to be the shortest season here in North Carolina. But I’m not complaining. Instead I plan to take full advantge of the beautiful weather by planning activities outside & unplugging more often.

I plan to take my camera everywhere I go so I can capture this spring in all of it’s beauty.

Growing up I lived all up and down the east coast from Florida to Maine. This time of year however always brings me back to where I was born and raised most of my life — Northern Virginia. Every year I would attend the Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington DC with my step mom. When I became an adult I stopped going. Again this year I won’t get to go and it’s breaking my heart. The Cherry Blossoms are breath taking and are in fact an inspiration for my tattoo that I’ve been working on.

I’m working on a back/shoulder piece. I’m not to sure that I am really bad ass enough to pull off something so big but I’m pretty sure I can attempt it.

I think since I am off this weekend and I have somehow inherited the sweetest little puppy for a little while Benson and I plan to head out to explore downtown Greenville- camera in tow.

I’m not planning any specific goals this weekend. Just 1 to relax and have some me time. I’m going to load a spring playlist on the iPhone charge my camera battery, grab a few puppy poop bags, and head out.

First Stop: Greenville Off Leash Dog Park
Then who knows where we’ll go from there.
I’ll be back Sunday night with an update of my unplugged weekend festivities.

Until then xoxox
