I had such a great time with Mackenzie and her family tonight! It was so worth waiting for this beautiful weather! Mackenzie graduated from Providence Classical School this year and is going to VA Tech in the fall to major in animal science. Hair and makeup by @violetvaila thank you @ronniepoo_
for helping out with the shoot!
Today I did something I hadn't done in over four years: I went grocery shopping.
And about twenty feet into the grocery store we remembered WHY I hadn't been to the grocery store in over four years. I know I know, you're dying in anticipation, so I'll tell you: I passed out, and hit the ground so fast even my service dog (who alerts before I pass out) didn't catch it.
What the heck right?! I ended up passing out four different times in the half and hour it took for my mom to speed shop - I hung out in an aisle when Peggy decided I wasn't allowed to move around anymore.
Sudden changes in temperature, like going from the heat of a summer day to the chill of a produce section, mess me up. My body essentially goes *error* and sends me crashing down. Fun stuff! Nevertheless, I learned three things today.
1. I really can't go grocery shopping for the safety of everyone involved
2. Once I'm uneasy my service dog will NOT let me push myself
3. If you're sitting on a palette of water, people will ask your permission to buy the water
WHO KNEW?! I felt so powerful, sitting there barely conscious telling people they could have a case of water and that it was $2.59 bc Peggy was laying in front of the price 🙈
good morning! I hope you all have a wonderful day, whether you're going to school or work or on summer break. ✨
I'm nearly done with my reread of Anna and the French Kiss, so this morning I'm going to finish that. next I'll be rereading Lola and the Boy Next Door, and starting Girl on the Verge by Pintip Dunn! the latter is an e-arc from Netgalley and I'm excited to dive in. 🙆🏼

#bts with little Emma at the start of a four handed (light) makeup and hair session 😊. This was the start of a long enjoyable multi-model multi-site afternoon magazine shoot for children's clothing store : @emmastore_geneva. Photos soon (once the magazine is out!).

Wow. These past few days have been a whirlwind of activity beyond my wildest dreams. I successfully made it through college orientation at the university I'll be attending this fall, AND went to my future roommate's graduation party! Orientation was non-stop and while I had a blast, I did pass out a couple times and need to use my wheelchair on the second day. I'll be writing up my experiences in more detail in a blog post coming later this week! I cannot wait for school to begin this fall, and I'm really excited for all of my courses! Peggy (my service dog) made an impression, and earned herself quite a few admirers. Hopefully she likes our new home!
