Life: Then & Now

In the past year, my life has undergone an immense amount of change. Like, immense. Ten months ago, that (then, potential) change scared me more than anything. Today, that (now, powerful) change is the best thing that could’ve happened in my life. Then, I was terrified of not being able to find a job, and even

Unemployment, life changes, and a new year.

Sheesh, I really did well keeping up on that blogging I talked about in my last post, huh? It’s been a rough few months, let’s just say that. I was laid off in October, unemployed for two months, ended a relationship, moved out of my apartment, and decided it was time to really start adulting.

Confessions and Book Reviews

Alright, I have a confession to make. I started this website with the intention of blogging regularly, and by that I thought at least once a week. HA HA HA MOLLIE, FAIL. You see, I write for a living, so for a while I felt drained of anything worthwhile to say. To combat that, I

Project: Downtown Charleston

So, as I’ve said, I freaking love Charleston. I can’t even believe I’ve lived 23 years without exploring it. It’s officially on my bucket list of places to visit again, and maybe even places to live.   Recently, I’ve been playing with my photography “style.” I’m such a noob that I don’t really have a

Project: Magnolia Gardens

Recently, I went on a trip to South Carolina. I stayed 35 minutes outside Charleston and I instantly fell in love with the city and it’s charm. During the trip, I visited the Magnolia Plantation and Gardens, one of the oldest and prettiest places I’ve seen to date. While I didn’t get to see as much

Project: 100 Acre Park photo trip

Have you been to the Virginia B. Fairbanks 100 Acre Park at the Indianapolis Museum of Art? It’s totally free (even free parking!) and it’s SO COOL. Adam and I went a couple weeks ago and decided to take the camera to see what we could capture. We didn’t even make it to all the

When a photographer gets photographed

Typically, I’m the one behind the lens, not in front of it. However, my good friend Sara Ballenger is quite the talented photographer so I had some fun modeling for her and decided to use a few of the photos for my site. Check out her portfolio to see her other talents! While modeling was fun,

Limitations and excuses

Ok, let me be transparent and put it out there: this is a rant post.  And maybe even a little bit of a list post.  And maybe full of tiny excuses.  But lately, I’ve had all this post-college time to think about things I want to do, but can’t because of various limitations (money, fears, ludicrous-ness,

Project: Snow day

So, anyone who lives in the Midwest (well, any sane person) will tell you that the weather, to put it plainly, sucks.  It just does.  You grow up with it, you’re used to it, but it still sucks.  Indiana is no exception to this rule, but perhaps the best example.  One week, it’s 50 degrees in the early
