Reminiscing on my last night at home for the summer of 19. After a night of competitive spikeball, stunning fireworks, perfect weather, & amazing people, it ended with a sparkler burn, a lightning storm, a good fire, and a kind of peace that can only be found in the right company. 🌩
Sunday night has rolled in and my time back home is waning for this visit. Melancholy settles in. • I want the time to hang, only coming in drops. • Needed this time, gratitude to the time • My steps are slower and my breath is deeper, my feet naturally know where to move me in tasks. It’s automatic and familiar. My room, favorite walking spots for watching dusk blanket itself for the sun’s descent and how the right touch on a muck fork for shifting shit feels so satisfying. Cold beer chats after a hot day spent outside since morning...I hold these smells near until next time. #visitnebraska#nebraskasummer
Photos from the recent flooding in Harlan County. The first few photos are from roads, and the others are fields. The river swelled finding an old channel and ran through roads and fields. It was interesting and understood why this happened. Walking along the road in the morning made me listen and observe where to walk more than ever. Nature was asking to observe and listen again and again taking out the routine of what was known before. #midwestflooding#nebraska

After the June afternoon I realized I was in love, Conrad and I made a habit of pulling off the highway for Nebraskan public pools. This one stood out to me not because it was hashtag Accidentally Wes Anderson, but because even now Conrad’s handsomeness slices through my memory like a machete among undergrowth. Even as this golden-hour instant was happening I thought: How am I here? How did I get so lucky to have a boy this hot and kind look at me like I am the only girl alive left on Earth at a public pool in Nebraska? Before we arrived in O’Neill, Nebraska—a place where Conrad has driven me because my distant family@lived there—I said: “I want to talk to my cousins about liberal politics and if they disagree I will call them out with facts.” Conrad grimaced. This conversation could have gone so wrong. But here’s the mort important truth: It didn’t. 5 PM in the American prairie looks the way Instagram look through filters. Saturated. Golden. Lens flares. “You are so sexy,” I said as I took photos of Conrad day’s after meeting my extended family. “Ha,” he said, shyly reaching out for me. Holding the camera, my plam inside his, away from my chest so I couldn’t take more photos he said, “Do you really think so?” And, evenly, again, I said: yes. And then he let my arms go like someone cutting the strings on a puppet show. When Conrad has his phone back and turned the lens on me I didnt know what to do. So I dabbed as a coping mechanism. All the while I hoped I looked cool COMMA BRO. Something I remember about these Nebraskan pools is that they made us split up to change. Women always to the right. Men—left. Why? But something I loved was the moment when I finally spotted him after we walked out. One of us would always be done first. Usually it was Conrad. And when I walked out I would search for his silhouette among the strangers until I found it and then we would splash together into the shallow ramp, holding hands. After we

P.s 98.3% of the photography was done by us. We are little over 50% of the way in our Nebraska Passport journey. But only approximately 30% in our journey of life and as friends. And as we progress through these journeys things will only get more complete and full. I Encourage everyone to get out of their comfort zones and try something new and fun. Life's a garden you gotta dig it! #nebraskapassport2019#getouthavefun#trynewthings#roadtrips
Today was good. ✨ It was raining off and on this morning so we opened the windows and enjoyed the summer shower. Daddy made us brunch- his famous pancakes 🤤- and we did devotions then laid low all morning. It was just what we needed. ✨ before Zane went off to bed he and I went outside to pick up their toys. I snapped this of him day dreaming and looking at it makes me smile, because this is so him right now. His imagination is soaring and he is often in a little boy dream land. But he truly loves to share with us all of his stories and dreams and big ideas- which just makes this time all the more special. ✨
