“Oh, the lavender fields. They’re so beautiful this time of year. You can’t tell because they’ve already been cut. Womp womp. This is an iconic site to photograph in the summertime when the lavender fields are in full bloom, usually July.

Beauregard. How fitting that Owen’s father, William Miler, was one of the founders of the Louisiana Historical Association.
he only Disney experience I’ve ever had was in California when we went to Disneyland. Although I will always be a “Disnerd” for life, I’ve had an old soul since I was a child, and Universal Studios was much more exciting and memorable.

I got to meet stars like Marilyn Monroe and Clark Gable, which is probably part of why I love Old Hollywood and vintage glamour.
