Miss Mai.

The lovely Mai Ho ventured down south to New Mexico, ate green chili burgers, tried out NM thrifting, tasted the famous Vanilla Moose, explored Mesa Verde, and survived my endless portrait sessions. Below are my favorites.

Things could be worse....

I could be addicted to cocaine. Or online shopping. Or eating cat hair. (Yes, that's a real thing.)
Hi. My name is Kylie and I'm kind of addicted to dairy. I must admit that lately I've developed the habit of eating a bowl of cereal for breakfast every morning...and sometimes for dinner too. At one point I was going through a gallon a week. But before you jump to conclusions, please understand that I work late and live alone.  But still, I started reading blogs and articles about the hormones in milk and started questioning my favorite food group. I finally came to the realization that I had a problem, and did the only thing I could think of, the hardest thing I could think of, the WORST thing I could think of : two weeks of being dairy-free. In the process of proving to myself that I didn't belong on TLC's newest episode of 'My Strange Addiction,' strange things began happening. My third day without milk I woke up at three in the morning with a parched throat and was half way to the fridge before I realized that I had just been dreaming about milk. Things continued to get worse. Vanilla Moose (my favorite place in town. AKA: the local ice cream shop) opened on day eight of my fast and I wanted to die. I made pancakes on day twelve and had to eat them with water! As you can see, my dairy-free weeks turned me into a giant drama queen diva. But like like Gloria Gaynor, I survived and discovered that almond milk isn't as freaky as I once thought it was and that I should diversify my eating habits to avoid scurvy.

ze canyons.

One I paid $32.00 to explore and the other was the price of a backcountry permit. One felt like a sardine can of tourists and the other like a solo exploration of mars. But hey, the pursuit of exploring gems of the southwest include both. :)

2013 sample.

Took some time last weekend and visited northern Arizona. It was 20 degrees warmer and had delicious BBQ and fry sauce and kind Germans and great camping and beautiful scenery and plenty of people watching, but plenty of empty canyons as well. What more can a girl ask for??
