Sara // Senior Session

Sara // Senior Session

It’s crazy how time flies and I remember when Sara was born. Being a cousin in my family is way different, I have learned, than most families.

Why I Moved Back to Illinois

Why I Moved Back to Illinois

About 5 years ago, while I was doing homework for a class at Millikin University, I got a call that I was officially offered a full-time job as a graphic designer starting a few weeks after I graduated in Louisville, KY.

I made sure to come prepared with liquid encouragement for him.

Project 52 - Week 23 | Show Me The Door

My brothers and I have had the great fortune of growing up in the same home throughout our whole lives. We never moved and that made our home a soft spot in our hearts (ok, I did move when I was little, but I don’t even remember the house because I was 3). Whenever I do come home, the positive energy that I feel sends a warming amount of peace through my body. Which is why this front door of my home worked perfectly for this week’s Project 52 prompt, Show Me The Door.
