sunsets // fighting the light

The other day my little sister asked me to take some photos of her to send various pen-pals. I almost tried to explain that taking pictures at almost-dusk doesn't really work, but she has asked me a couple times, (every-single-time-being almost dark outside,) so I didn't explain again. We went out and fought the light to get a few decent pictures. And at one point I turned around and snapped these, because the cloud/tree/sunlight combination was stunning. I get frustrated easily when taking photos like these, though, because try as I might, I don't feel like I can do the sunset perfect justice. It was magical that night.

i'm off to go finish the laundry, take some ibuprophen (i've got a wretched headache this afternoon. I think I might be getting sick again. It seems like this winter has me sick 98% of the time...), and then I am going to put together an outfit for a guest post I agreed to do, and read some more of "After the Funeral" by Agatha Christie. I recently started reading her books and guys I fell in love. Mysteries have always enthralled me, and I can't believe that I didn't start reading her works before. They're quirky, the murderer is always someone you have a love/hate relationship with and the writing is beautiful. I highly recommend them. (Especially paired with a LARGE mug of earl gray tea.

What does your drizzly, gray afternoon consist of? {Assuming of course that you are experiencing the wet, depressing weather that I am experiencing.} 

Oh, and as a side note, I have a question for all of those who have gotten ear piercings. I got my seconds pierced seven or so weeks ago, but they haven't healed. In fact, they're bleeding every day still and hurt like crazy. I am wondering if any of you have experienced that, and if so, WHAT DID YOU DO? I really don't want to have to take them out and let them heal up. I do have really sensitive/allergic skin, but I bought earrings that are specifically for sensitive skin types. Anyway, I would love any advice or ideas!

  1. Hey Becca! It's been a long time. I have made a new blog, and have finally started writing again! I got my upper ear pierced in July, and I experienced a lot of the same issues... I never took it out, I just consistently cleaned it with peroxide and rubbing alcohol, and it took a while, but it eventually cleared up... it is perfectly fine now. Dakota experienced it as well, when he got his ears pierced, and just kept it clean. His eventually cleared up as well. We have learned that with piercings, cleanliness is key!


I read and appreciate every comment. :)
