My name is Rebecca, but my friends call me “Rebie.” (It’s pronounced “Ree-bee,” but, please, don’t ever spell it that way.)
On the surface, it probably seems you’ve heard my story before. I grew up in a small-town, uptown world in a great family, then graduated with decent grades and some really cool opportunities from a private University. I don’t take this for granted for a second.
Now I’m living among the sea of twenty-somethings trying to find their place in the world – learning to thrive in a new job in a new city with new people, a constant stream of little adventures, and a life that’s much more complicated than I once thought it was.
Supposedly, I’ve now entered the “real world.”
This blog was born because I don’t want to stop noticing the magic.
“Real life” is anything but un-magical.
It’s time to explore the moments found in everyday life from a viewpoint you may not have previously considered.
Stop. Appreciate. Truly think about the implications of the world around you.
This blog contains photo essays and ponderings that were meant to help us do just that.
And if you’ve never been very good at noticing – it’s never too late to start!
These posts keep me noticing. All writing and photography is by me, unless otherwise noted like this lovely picture at the top of the page.
