Bonjour! It's been over a year since I've been back on this blog. When I left, it was the middle of 2019. Now, we're headed towards the end of 2020 and a completely upside-down world. I've been in the background, lurking occasionally, but for the most part, absent from the blogosphere. In this year and a half, I have moved to Los Angeles and back to Seattle, met my partner, changed jobs, and moved my entire life -- all during a pandemic! If you asked me where I would be in 2020, I would not have predicted any of this.

Everything in the world is closed up. I generally work from home as I can. While the work moves along, the world seems to be on pause. I work a lot (and I love what I get to do) but need to engage in creative endeavors again for balance. This includes photography, blogging, drawing, writing, and getting back into regular fitness. I don't know about you, but my fitness has suffered since the pandemic began. I no longer have a gym membership or access to spin class. I do, however, have kettlebells, running shoes, and self-motivation to move. 

I am not entirely sure where to start again with blogging. I haven't touched my camera in months until yesterday. I am hoping to make this space a place to share photography again. Maybe portraits. Maybe beauty products and reviews. Maybe small moments in time like this photograph here. I don't know what I'll post yet, but what I do know is that I have a full-frame Canon, this domain, and the urge to create and share imagery. So hello world, hello blogosphere. See you soon. 


  1. Hello! Glad to hear that you are well (or as well as 2020 will allow)

  2. Alyse, it's so nice to hear from you again! Looking forward to reading more posts from you again :)

  3. Yesss, this makes me so happy to hear! I am happy that even though with the pandemic, you're life is going for the better -- I mean moving so much sounds exhausting but you sound positive so that's nice!! Welcome back! x
