Friday Round-Up: January 3, 2014

Happy weekend! I’d also like to wish a happy birthday to my lovely sister. We’re going out to dinner tonight with her, my brother-in-law, and my parents to celebrate and then taking it easy the rest of the weekend. What are you up to?

  2. Miki Schroeder says:

    I’ve always loved my hometown but those photos put me in awe of it. Thanks for posting!

  3. great interview!

  4. I’m a little sad to see Jennifer Lawrence is out.

  5. Loved reading your interview! I wanna write for Groupon!! ;) Also loved the cute old people photos!

  6. That “Up” photo shoot is amazing. I don’t know if it’s because I am engaged and most of my friends are getting married, but I definitely want to be photographer in my next life. I love helping my friends with ideas for poses and props in their engagement shoots. This shoot made my heart happy!

    And congrats on your interview! I read it over the holiday break, but no shock here, I always knew you would be a star :)
