packing for a trip to tampa + atlanta. trying to fit all my “essentials” into a carryon isn’t super easy, especially when puppy keeps grabbing my shoes + clothes and is depositing them all over the house. apparently @thunderthebluedane isn’t too happy, but he gets to stay with his doggie cousins @ponderosapomskies. - what are all the fun things we need to do??

One month after my first journey, I was on the Vivek Express once again, beginning in Kanyakumari and heading north. The conditions were also a little friendlier. There weren’t as many people aboard the train and I felt more at ease having a confirmed train ticket in hand. I hold a soft corner in my heart for South India and the return journey would let me see the landscapes during the daytime. Though they all flashed by, I was able to capture the quintessential rice fields, tall trees, ponds, and men dressed in local attire. What catches your curiosity when you are amongst a group of men wearing off-white and gold attire with Chandan tilaks, marks made with sandalwood paste, on their foreheads? Here it was a lunch that looked like a festival feast—with an assortment of South Indian delicacies including chutneys, appams, papad, rice, and sambar spread out across banana leaves in the traditional way. My intrigue was put to rest as the hungry men gave me the secret behind their feast: “Skip the train pantry. Order heavy, hearty meals on the phone and get them delivered to their respective seats at the next station” When I finally reached the north, I began to wonder who first said: “Journeys end, journeys begin!” To me, it begins with travelers like us who breathe in the soul of the place and the air they travel in. The odyssey wasn’t just an odyssey, but a juncture and befalling truth to meet myself—to enhance and enrich my experience while better understanding the places I love. . . .

Hello loves. How is your Wednesday? I have been staying extra busy this last week with pictures and catching up from all thebrain we had before. I am so excited for engagement pictures tonight too! It's going to be fun!
My beautiful mama. 💛 ⠀⠀ On Monday, we dropped her off at the airport in Medicine Hat and I miss her already. 💛 ⠀⠀ It wasn’t as hard saying goodbye this time as it was in October, when she’d been out for a month for Jude’s birth, because this time I knew we’ll be seeing her again in two and a half months! 💛 ⠀⠀ At the end of mom’s week-long visit, we all spur-of-the-moment-like decided to take some photos of her for her new website [coming later this year!]. 💛 ⠀⠀ Dark clouds were rolling in so we knew we didn’t have long. Mom got ready in five minutes and we literally only had five minutes of shooting before it started raining. It was a fun, short shoot and we got some gooders out of it! 💛 ⠀⠀ See her yellow sweater? It’s actually my sweater I snagged from her years ago when she was going to give it to the recycling depot clothing department. I wore it during her week here and she asked, “where’d you get that sweater?” 🤣🤣🤣 Haha! So glad I scooped it up and it was great seeing it on her again. 💛 ⠀⠀ Can I look this good and be having this much fun when I’m 59 please? Comment your fav emoji if you’re with me! 👊🏻💛👇🏻💛
