The Cherry Blossoms are out in full swing, and I made sure to seize the moment! I always feel like they creep up on me every year… I start noticing them (mainly because my allergies are out of CONTROL this time of year), and then as soon as they start looking really epic.. they disappear! I missed the boat last year, and wanted to make sure I got some good photos of them this time around. So I headed to Sunset Beach, during a rainstorm, with my trusty new tripod.. and proceeded to take some photos. There was nobody around at 1 pm on a Tuesday, so I really went for it haha.

Also this past week I have been reading a lot of Walt Whitman’s beautiful poetry, and I figured I would share some of my favorite quotes of his, along with some Cherry Blossom photos! Hope you are all doing well, and that the rain isn’t getting you down. I’m off to Mexico in 4 sleeps, and I am NOT going to miss this weather! Can’t wait to share some photos and stories from the trip with you guys, in a few weeks ❤

xo,

Carly.

“I exist as I am, that is enough,
If no other in the world be aware I sit content,
And if each and all be aware I sit content.
One world is aware, and by the far the largest to me, and that is myself,
And whether I come to my own today or in ten thousand or ten million years,
I can cheerfully take it now, or with equal cheerfulness, I can wait.”

“have you learned the lessons only of those who admired you, and were tender with you, and stood aside for you? Have you not learned great lessons from those who braced themselves against you, and disputed passage with you?”

“storming, enjoying, planning, loving, cautioning,
Backing and filling, appearing and disappearing,
I tread day and night such roads.”
Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass
