Looking Back | 2015 Photo Diary

Dear Future, I am ready.

As I look ahead, I welcome a new year filled with new artwork, challenges, loves, accomplishments, ambitions and great expectations. Thank you for your continued support and kind words... it means everything to me! I promise to bring exciting things to the table. 

It's been a strange and wonderful time, packed with a veritable rollercoaster of experiences, joys, hardships, and unexpected expressive journey's. I won't lie, the ride has been jarring. And the devastating impact of the massive flooding in my area currently affecting families, local businesses, homeless animals, and our community as a whole, doesn't exactly help matters. And since I'm kinda trapped here... no celebrations tonight.
There will be repeat episodes of 'You're the Worst'. Also, wine.  

However, on a brighter note...I've accomplished some incredible things this year that I never knew were possible and waded through moments seemingly impossible. There are certain aspects - relationships, people, thoughts - I have silently nurtured that now, for my own happiness, I must set free in order to move ahead and grow as an individual. I'm not even who I am, yet. 

Show me what ya got, 2016, because I'm excited, anxious, and hopeful... I'm ready for new chapters in this thing called life.

Here's to loving ourselves better. Wishing you a very Happy New Year!
Love, Bella

i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)

Today I say goodbye to my sister. Rarely do I write about the intimate details of my life, but this is a new chapter that I'm not quite prepared to read. After rummaging about the endless folders, these images so easily depict the emotionality of what I'm feeling. I wish Alex was here. I couldn't have imagined these circumstances, the recent trials and tribulations that have fallen across our small family like a dark curtain, but with time I suppose all things change. It isn't one of those situations when someone in your family simply moves to another state, and Christmas becomes second to seeing one another after months of sporadic e-mailing. This is different. When she made the impulsive decision (that came quite dauntingly) to pack her belongings and her child, and move to another state to be with a man she'd met only once, all we could do was ask her to stay. I asked a million questions in whisper because I ultimately want her happiness... because through the c…
