Sherwin+Steph: Sand Dune Dreamin'-Glamis, CA

I believe I have had at least a couple of walkabouts during my 20-something years on Earth.  One of them has been quite recent.  I'm still on it, you could say, and it has absolutely been my most difficult, yet altering one.  I have spent hours on end exploring my habits, feelings, opinions, thoughts, reactions, goals, and all the other things we all have stuffed inside of our amazing little beings.  Who knew I'd learn so much in such a short amount of time, just by focusing on becoming more self-aware for a couple of years?  If I could share anything about this time (and, actually, I can), it would be that it has been terrifying, sad, weathering, exciting, spiritual, fulfilling, and amazing.  The most important thing I've learned about myself is that I love and need to create.  The most important thing I've learned about this life is that I should only send it love no matter what. What have you learned about yourself this year?


I am extremely grateful to:

Rebecca Blue Media for the best video coverage I have ever seen; Sage Sisters for a bouquet so gorgeous that I now have it drying out in my living room, because I didn't have the heart to throw it away; Birdie Boutique for the most perfect jewelry to compliment this Dress Theory gown by Claire Pettibone; and my new friends Steph & Sherwin DesPortes who I wish a happy congratulations on their new, sweet marriage. Fine Art by Stephanie DesPortes.
