Yachtsmaan Turned Three Yesterday

That's insane. I began this blog as an eighteen year old gearing up to graduate high school and leave Texas. Today I'm a twenty-one year old, back in Texas, with a clearer view of what I want, but still a pretty blurry idea of how to get there. I'm learning though, and I think the blur is normal. That's what I've been told, at least. This blog has grown with me, and it has grown as an extension of myself. It's wild how much life can change in three years, and how much goals can and will change. 

I started this blog as a simple photo diary. The name came from an inside joke from a friend. I only posted when I had gathered enough content. I was learning with my new camera, and I was in love. These days I post often, and plan ahead. My camera is also an extension of myself, and I've grown confident enough to share my paintings and illustrations in this space as well. If you're considering starting a blog, do it. I've progressed so much with my work, and I can't wait to see where I (and this blog) go from here.

Happy Anniversary blog. Here's to three more.



  1. Congratulations on a whole three years, Amber! That's amazing. You should be so proud of everything you've achieved through your blog and the beautiful corner of the internet that you've created. You're so talented!

    I totally agree with you, too - anybody thinking about starting a blog, should. It's life changing!
