Ahhhhh yes… finally a new blog post. It’s been months since I posted and I feel awful about it. See what I hadn’t realized before is that blogging isn’t easy, it takes time, patience, and money to work on. It was very difficult for me to keep up with blogging since I had just gotten my first job ever as a Student Research Assistant for one of my college professors, It was my final semester as an undergrad so I was very stressed, I was an officer for two Psychology clubs at my college, I couldn’t find someone to take pictures for me since my friends and boyfriend had different schedules from mine, and I was searching for an affordable apartment and good roommates. I was able to overcome all the obstacles that came in way in the Spring and I’ve decided to continue blogging and just have fun with it. My boyfriend has decided to join me on this adventure and take pictures for me even though he hated the idea of having to take pictures for me at first, I’m glad he changed his mind about it!

I discovered this magical lily pad garden here in San Angelo last month. I have been living here four years and I didn’t even know this existed… and it’s not like San Angelo is huge so why on earth hadn’t I discovered this earlier? Well the lily pad garden is located in a park that is seriously right next to one of the most popular and biggest streets in town, you just can’t see it from the road because there’s so many trees surrounding it and from a distance it just looks like a regular park. The lily pad flowers are just so beautiful and colorful! This is definitely a must see when you’re visiting San Angelo! I was so happy that day when we took my pictures, I was so nervous/happy/excited/scared cause I wasn’t sure how they’d come out, and my boyfriend had never used my fancy Nikon camera before so he wasn’t sure what he was doing, but looking at the pictures I can tell he is a natural at it! After we finished with our little photo sesh, he turned to me and said “Well it wasn’t as bad as I thought” which made me smile 🙂 On our drive back to his apartment he began to give me ideas on where we should go shooting next and when we should go, I could totally tell that he was into this as much as I was! I hope you’ve enjoyed this post and the pictures, and remember to never stop yourself from doing what you want to do just because you think you’ll fail at it!
