Frances Photography: Life Lately

So instead of an outfit post like I'd planned, I felt like switching it up and showing some of the photography I've done lately. Getting out and exploring is a goal of mine this year, and Corina and I have managed to get out every now and then when we have time. Being a full time college student who's also involved in extracurricular activities and working doesn't lend much time to exploring unfortunately...however, if you're determined, you can still squeeze in some time for things you really want to do.

And on that note, on to updating you on that movie date...

Dear Adorably Scruffy,
As a follow up to the previous letter, I have to say, I don't mind you disregarding my demands for you to stop being so...adorable. Please continue, I'd be disappointed if you let me down now. Despite your teasing over how jumpy I am (hey now, Insidious 2 is way scarier than the previous one), I could feel you flexing your arm on the arm rest as I leaned against you. Also, the gentlemanly mannerisms you displayed were much appreciated. There's certainly not enough of that kind of mindset in today's youth. Then again, you're not exactly a youth, are you? As you so cutely teased, "My first movie in a theater was Star Wars...that was before your time."
(PS: Just so you don't freak out, it's not a HUGE age gap, but a perfectly sized one, where he's 3 years older than me. So no worries, the "jailbait" signature is a joke haha!)

In other words, the date went well. :) 
Now we have a coffee date set for today.
Wish me luck!

Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

Aw, Linda! How precious. I've been keeping up with all your posts, and I've been so excited for you. Glad to hear everything went well (: 3 years isn't bad at all--I think it's just perfect! Age differences mean less and less as we get older anyways.

You photography is simply beautiful. I love the one the road shot with the sunglasses and those cute ones of your mom. The color balance is so nostalgic and I'm loving your cozy fall looks in the photos.

Best of luck with your date and have a great weekend!

That was so cute to read! I'm glad you're having so much fun. Three years is actually a perfect age gap, he'll be much more mature than the guys your own age. Have a good coffee date! :)

P.S. In love with the first photo! You have such expressive eyes!

Love these photos you've got such an eye I love them all :) especially the one of you in the car :)
Thank you about my hair, I feel back to normal now (it was seriously depressing me being unable to express myself with ginger hair)x

Oh, I didn't know you had your 'eye' on someone now days. Glad to get in on this now, when the beginning info is crucial.

Jailbait? - ha! My HM is 15 yrs older than moi. And we love it that way. LOL

hehe, my fiance is 3 years younger than me ;) so yeah, this gap means nothing, I think. 10 years would be a real gap though, haha.
by the way, Linda, I truly enjoyed going through those photos. they're so summery that I even felt a little nostalgic here. wonderful post! and I hope you will make more posts like that :)
