The Ugliest Thing I Could Find

So, the tie dye pattern on this Migle dress from United Colors reminded me of one of my favorite shirts when I was about 18. There’s actually a funny story about that shirt. My parents got divorced when I was 15, for the first year my mom cried almost every night. After that she went…

Lost on the Dock

When I shot this photo my main objective was to show off some more of the amazing creations you’ll find at the Vintage Fair and various other events across the grid. Okay, done. Then I though about what to write and I spent over an hour on YouTube looking for the perfect song, but nothing…

My Ride

“Oh, oh I’m falling so I’m taking my time on my ride Oh, I’m falling so I’m taking my time on my ride Taking my time on my ride” Twenty One Pilots-Ride So, this song started on repeat in my head the minute I started taking this picture and at first I was like, ok,…

To AraCakes with Love

I grew up listening to my mom telling stories about hanging out at the soda fountain at the pharmacy after school. The closest thing I had to that was my last two years of high school, we’d all park at Corner Grocery, which was really a Texaco station, get drunk and dance in the gravel…

End of the Day

You know how at the end of the day, we shed our clothes, we wash our faces, and brush our teeth? Some of us shower or bathe before bed, too? Then the minute we lay down the events of the day start swirling about in our heads. No, not you, Troy, I know you are…

Cherry Bomb

“Hello, dad. Hello, mom. I’m your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb! Hello world! I’m your wild girl. I’m your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb!” The Runaways – Cherry Bomb I don’t have the mindset to write anything especially deep or meaningful for this post. Oh sure, I thought of analogies about how life’s not a bowl of cherries. Instead, I just…

The 3F Rule

“I can swear, I can joke I say what’s on my mind If I drink, if I smoke I keep up with the guys And you see me holding up my middle finger to the world Fuck your ribbons and your pearls ‘Cause I’m not just a pretty girl” Maggie Lindemann – Pretty Girl My…

Warning Signs

Some people should come with warning signs. I’ve often said that about myself. Much like the profiles that most of us fill out about our friends, what we do, our favorite stores, etc. I think sometimes we should dedicate one to a warning. For instance, mine might say something like….WARNING: Sometimes carelessly sarcastic. Maybe harmful…

If I Have an Angel

I was born on a Sunday morning. My devote Christian grandmother told my mom that it meant I would have extra angels looking over me. As I was not a particularly graceful child (or adult for that matter) my mother would often say, “Your angels are working overtime today!” As I got older and continued…

Summer Breeze

“Summer breeze, makes me feel fine, blowing through the jasmine in my mind” ~Summer Breeze – Seals & Croft This is one of those songs that takes me back to childhood summers in Alabama. As a child I didn’t notice the heat so much, I just knew its warm and the sun is shining, and that meant…
