"You be the anchor that keeps my feet on the ground, I'll be the wings that keep your heart in the clouds." -MDP

I saw this quote the other day and thought it was perfect for Austin and I... then, after editing these photos from my shoot with my sister, I realized that it also works for the two of us.. 

Perhaps I see myself as the wings in a lot of my relationships. 
Perhaps I am. 













I feel like each one came out as a perfect representation of what atg. is to me. 
The desert- such an amazing set. 
My sister- such a beautiful mannequin. Possibly the prettiest I've ever seen. 

But what good is a sister if she isn't there to... laugh hysterically as you scream and moan and dance in pain?


She's laughing at me. 
At my pain. 

An ant between my toes. 
No ordinary ant. 

This ant must have been drinking desert sun for months because his bite was a round house kick of hell and fury. 
Seriously. 
He may as well have been a fire breathing dragon- a wolf with teeth of erupting volcanic rock.
Maybe he got laid off from his job at the hill?
I may have been described as "dramatic" a few hundred times in my life (give or take), but seriously...
THIS ANT!

I'm glad to know a millimeter-sized creature has the strength to make me meet the earth. 
It puts me in my place. 

....back home in a well air conditioned, tightly sealed, house.
