I'm Anna. I'm a 26-year-old day dreamer, weekend adventurer, and compulsive snacker. I live my life by this simple philosophy: life is too short to be anything but fat and happy. I'm sarcastic, optimistic, and awkward in unfamiliar social situations. I hate the word "hence." I am a staunch advocate of the Oxford comma. I dabble in photography and creative writing, enjoy spending my time on the fringes of reality, laughing at inappropriate junctures, Mexican food, and run-on sentences. I'm a graduate of Florida State University with an English/Creative Writing degree. We live in Virginia now, but I remain a die-hard 'Noles fan and live for football season.
"Affection is responsible for nine-tenths of whatever solid and durable happiness there is in our lives." - C.S. Lewis
I am married to Mike, a hunky Sheriff's Deputy turned Fire Inspector who happens to be eight years my senior. To read more about him, click here. To read more about our wedding, click here. We have four babies (all of the fur variety) Bella the mutt, Boomer the Lab, Buffalo the cat (RIP), and Moose the spawn of Satan (j/k she's a cat).
Our lives, with all their miracles and wonders, are merely a discontinuous string of incidents - until we create the narrative that gives them meaning.
When tasked with naming my one true passion, I will always choose writing. Oddly enough, outside of these blog posts, I do not write nearly as much as I'd like. Second to writing comes photography, a lot of which is featured on this site. I shoot with a Nikon D90, and most often I am using one of two lenses: my Nikkor 50 mm or my Nikkor 10-24 mm. I also have a Nikkor 55-200 mm, a Nikkor 85 mm, a Sigma 10-20 mm, and the kit Nikkor 18-55 mm.
This is my blog about life, love, photography, and frivolity from somewhere in between adolescence and senility.
I am obsessed with design and constantly change the look of my blog. I'll make one for you if you want! Click HERE for more info.
