found on the beach – 49 lighters

I think this just may be my favorite found on the beach arrangement! When I first started doing these arrangements five or six years ago I always made them in the sand. It was super important to me that I found a clear little section of sand with no other debris. I was really nitpicky

four years in cleveland

very rare photo without bangs in my face. just look at that smile though. Valentine’s Day marked four whole years in Cleveland. FOUR YEARS! Part of me feels like this post is wholly unnecessary.

Cleveland Rocks!

Lake Erie cairns

Are you guys familiar with cairns? A cairn is literally just a human made pile of rocks. Sometimes they’re used to mark trails, or signify someone has died in a certain spot.
