Hi there!

Hi! Welcome to my corner of the internet. I'm a 26 year old therapist, feminist, photographer, and shop owner currently living in Seattle, Washington. My shop, Dealign with Feelings, is geared toward destigmatizing and normalizing mental health. I'm biased, but I think we have some pretty cute stuff :) Click the "shop" tab to see what we've got! I mainly post about my travel and daily life on here. With other random musings thrown in. I post more frequently (and about more feminism) on my Instagram @emmycoletti, so make sure you're following me there. Thanks for stopping by!

0 1 - 3 0 - 2 0 1 4

Photos from our day exploring! We tried to go on a hike to Secret Lake, but after we drove all of the way up there, we found out the road was closed! So, we just ate our picnic in the car and drove around. There were some pretty neat places.

I really wanted a cute photo of us in front of a mountain... so here is this. It's definitely not photoshopped... Haha.

The drive home was when the sun was setting, and at one part all the colors of the sunset were peaking through the canyon. It was so beautiful!

I can't wait for the roads to open, so we can explore the places on our list!

0 1 - 2 9 - 2 0 1 4

These are from... last week sometime when I went to dinner with friends! We tried this  new place called The Wild Zucchini. It was like, street Italian food? I've never heard of it before. I got a tortilla with spaghetti noodles, marinara sauce, mushrooms, zucchini, and kalamata (?) olives. It was ok, but I wish I would have gotten the pizza or just normal pasta. 

We got froyo afterwards. I was halfway sad that they didn't have those mochi things. But, they had the little flavor balls, so all was good. What is mochi anyways? One time I saw this huge thing at the grocery story. It was like the size of half a loaf of bread, and I was like wtf is this thing. Maybe that's how big they originally are? Who knows. But, I freaking love those things in froyo. 

Do you ever make stupid photo mistakes? I should have changed the aperture, but I totally forgot. So, yay for out of focus pictures. Haha. 

I love catching up with old friends! I always forget how much fun they are, haha. Too bad they are leaving me for the air force and college :(. 

On another note, does Lucas from One Tree Hill wear eyeliner sometimes? I'm watching like, the middle of season 4, and I can swear he has eyeliner on! Weirdest.

J Dawgs + Ice Castles

Yesterday, we went to the ice castles! It has seriously been on my bucket list for like four years! It was really cool, though. Safe to say my expectations were met! 

We went to J-Dawg's beforehand and grabbed some delicious grub. I'm trying to get a job at an eating disorder clinic, and being vegetarian probably isn't the best example to set for the patients. So, I've been eating meat lately. It was weird at first, but it's fine now. I feel like doing it for a reason makes it easier, you know? Like, eating meat so I can be a good example is better than eating meat because being a vegetarian is "too hard". Plus, I don't feel like I'm losing a part of myself this way. Also, turns out I really love hot dogs. Like, the good all-beef ones. 

So, I really didn't want to use my flash and lose the beautiful colors of the ice! So, I didn't really get a very good one of me and Jake. Well, with colors in it at least. Haha. But, I love the color in all the rest! If you haven't gone to the ice castles, you definitely should! Just make sure you wear boots, because the ground is like... loose ice? Slushy is probably a better word. Also, we went on Friday night and it was pretty packed. But, not too bad. But still, I'd recommend going on a week night. :) Anyways! 

This was this hole you could look into and there was a little water fountain thing. I'm so happy I got it in three different colors! 

Afterwards, we went to Jake's friends house and played Wizard! I definitely thought it was like, a magic game, but it's actually really fun! It takes a while to get used to, but I love learning new games instead of playing the same ones over and over again. 

Anyways, I'm off to a friend's bridal shower!
