(I) Love Arcadia Pt. I

Hello and welcome to "have peitience"! Today is the launch of this blog! Read more about me and the meaning behind the name here. I thought it was appropriate that I dedicated the first post to something near and dear to my heart. For the last month I've been working non-stop on an independent film.

My adventure with Love Arcadia first started in October 2013. My friend Theresa was kind enough to send me the script she wrote after I eagerly asked to see it. I fell in love with the story and could see myself reflected in some of the characters. I shared my excitement with Theresa and two months and a script revision later, I was able to help out with my first ever casting session!

Here I am at Cazt with Dave the producer. 

The Kickstarter was successfully funded on January 1st and soon after I signed on as the wardrobe stylist. I was very excited, but increasingly anxious and terrified as well. Yet, a hectic month of filming later I'm still alive! Now, I'm kind of in withdrawal since I'm not on set 12 hours a day surrounded by the talented and inspiring cast and crew. Womp. 

To combat the sadness of this whirlwind of an adventure being over, I'm going to post snippets of the last month from time to time. There are a lot more pictures to come, but I'll leave you with this gem of me trying on a potential dress for the wedding in Love Arcadia!

Thanks for reading my first post to kick off my blog! :)
