via lacunningham on instagramApril was good to me. April took me on adventures to new places. April allowed me to try new things. April gave me clarity.

I think my favorite thing that I did this month was during my trip home to Little Rock, Arkansas. Saturday morning my mom and I rose with the sun to seek out the best of the city’s Farmer’s Markets. We spent the whole day strolling through aisles of freshly cut flowers and herbs, enveloped in the smells of homemade breads and baked goods. The city was buzzing with people happy to be in the sun; feeling the consoling rays of the morning on my bare shoulders made me forget the harsh winter that has now faded away.

There was also a boisterous, cheerful, older man who convinced me to cradle one of his pet chickens in my arms, but that’s another story for another time.

I hope April was as good to you as it was to me.

 

Speak to you all soon!

LA Photo Diary: Rest of DTLA // Blue Skies for Days

My good friend Lauren always claims that she is, “solar powered,” and after a week in the 70 degree paradise that is SoCal, I have to admit I may be too.

I forget during the cold, dreary months how much a couple of rays can bring me back to life. I forget how my favorite color may as well be sky blue. I forget how much better ice cream tastes when you aren’t shivering while you eat it and making promises to yourself that it’s worth it.

With spring comes markets and reasons to explore, and as you’ve seen so far, that’s what this trip was all about.

I couldn’t help but post twice today. I didn’t figure you guys would mind. We head home to frozen over Tennessee tomorrow, but don’t worry because I have one million more LA memories to share.

Speak to you all soon!
