the realness

So glad I got to look through my lens again this weekend. Here are some of the shots from my Nikon D90. I really don’t play with it as often as I should but I’m definitely making an effort to do so more often. I used to get so lost in my photography. I’d go on photo walks to a park or something and then end up completely lost because I kept following the ‘next’ thing I wanted to photograph and completely forgot to keep track of where I was going hah. Going to make a real effort to go on photo walks more often. Especially now that I upgraded the RAM on my laptop, uploading and editing photos is not nearly as frustrating so I have one fewer excuse!

The first couple photos are in San Francisco and the rest were all taken in Muir Woods. Still deciding which ones to print for our gallery (& I’m open to suggestions)!

road trippin’

Because I had the Thursday and Friday after finals off from school, we planned a last minute trip up to Northern California. My cousin, who’s more like an older brother, moved up there with his family a few months ago. We were supposed to make the trip a while back but I got sick so we didn’t make it up.

I really needed to get away from everything after the madness that was this block. I honestly wasn’t sure if I passed the block but I knew there wasn’t anything I could do over the next few days that would make any difference so we packed up some clothes, junk food, my DSLR, grabbed some coffee and made the drive up after I got out of clinic on Thursday.

It was absolutely the perfect long weekend full of long conversations with family and friends I don’t get to see nearly enough. Every morning was a lazy morning. ¬†We drank delicious coffee and ate scrumptious food. We went on a hike in the woods and I bonded with my nephew. Hubby and I finally got to wear our matching t shirts I got for his birthday this past year.

Tomorrow I start another block of medical school and I’m feeling good about the rest of the year. Going on this trip was the perfect break from all things medicine and I’m ready to get back into things. So many exciting things coming up the next few months and I have a few series I want to start on Instagram so look out for that! The first years start anatomy this block so please stems some good vibes into the universe for them.

About to jump into the driver’s seat and finish off this 400 mile drive. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and have an even lovelier week ahead!
