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

Less than a year ago, I became a homeowner of a beautiful, old Victorian built in 1870. A dream come true but recently a nightmare. This was a milestone in my life... and yet now something I'm asking anyone that can, to please help save it from repeated flooding and water damage. Unaware this was a past issue, I'm faced with devastating restoration costs in order to maintain the preservation and integrity of my home's internal and external structure. 
This past week, we received significant amounts of rainfall and the NWS issued flash flooding in this area. Because of untreated damage over the years before I lived here, rainfall continues to pour down/through parts of the roof and pipes as ground water surges in, flooding the inside of my home with 18-24 inches of water.
Winter temperatures are still in the mi…
