    If You Like Pina Coladas…

    Sun, sand and a pineapple in hand! As the old adage goes, “When in Rome, do as the Romans do.” That basically applies here too! Except it’s more like, “When in Rocky Point, do get a piña colada from a piña colada truck!!” It’s pretty much one of the most importante things you could do! And luckily, piña coladas happen to be one of the 5 essential food groups while one vacation. The other four would be: chips, salsa, guacamole, and queso. (In that order!) I’m so glad had I packed this breezy little Planet Blue number too, because (stretchy waistline) and whew! Was it hot! Not the drink, that was cold!…

    The Grand Tetons

    If we were walking through these fields together, I might say in passing, how beautiful it is here. I might tell you, there’s nothing like this sunshine. Or how much my heart opens in the expanses of these kinds of places. I might tell you, there’s something in the air that allows me to breathe in a little deeper. A found refuge, to these mountains I’ve been climbing. And the wonder of it all is, no matter how high our peaks are, we keep going. Still open. Still trekking forward. With curiosity, wonder. Just softening into the great divide.

    Hiking into The Wave Pt. II

    I didn’t want to rush the moment. I wanted to feel it–to notice it. To notice myself in it. To simply be, and to let the moment wash over me. Like the ebbing away of a tide that washes over the shore.  Because I knew the moment was never meant to last. That it would be gone before I even knew it. A faded memory that I would have to relive in bits and pieces on unknown days. I didn’t want to forget what it felt like to truly be there. How it breathed life into me, and gave me the gift of feeling so alive. Or how the edges…

    Hiking Into The Wave Pt. I

    One thing to put on your bucket list is hiking into The Wave. It’s an experience that is quite an adventure. From the lottery alone, to the journey to get there. If you really put yourself in the moment, you will leave The Wave changed and awakened. To see one of the most beautiful places in the world, you must apply for a permit here. Currently, they only allow 20 people on per day to preserve the integrity and beauty of the land. You have about a 14.6% success rate of winning the lottery, as over 10 people are chosen via an online lottery, and 10 via walk-in a day…

    Aint Life Grand

    Madewell Leather Jacket | FreePeople Hat | Scarf Vida Moulin c/o | MinkPink Sweater | Madewell Jeans | LuckyBrand Boots There’s something magically healing about the Grand Canyon. It’s a spiritual place that I can’t quite explain. Go there for a weekend. Stay at the El Tovar Hotel right on the South Rim. It’s an old, historic hotel built in the early 1900s and it has that rustic feel that makes you nostalgic for the past. Luminaries such as Theodore Roosevelt and Albert Einstein used to stay there. Then wake up in the morning, step outside, and stand in awe of the grandness that awaits you. The canyon in the morning light is…

    Grand Canyon

    These are a few pics from our visit to the Grand Canyon. It was such a beautiful sight to pull up to, and hard to capture. From the colors, to the sky…It all seemed to get washed out from the visibility of the air. And it’s just so GRAND. I mean, how do you take something larger than life and shrink it into 1200 pixels wide? I guess it’s one of those things you just have to see for yourself. I mean, it’s only one of the natural seven wonders of the world. SaveSave SaveSave

    This Land

      This is my second trip walking through Lower Antelope Canyon, in Page, Arizona. I discovered things I missed the first time. And had memories from the last. It’s amazing how different yet the same something can feel with only a little time. I hope to go back again to discover even more beauty. It is such a sacred place, and leaves your spirit in harmony with something greater than yourself. SaveSave

    Keep Me Wild

    Blouse: Vida Moulin | Top: Vida Moulin | Jeans: Madewell | Boots: Lucky | Hat: Free People This place is planetary. Wild. Breathtakingly beautiful. One of my favorite spots to get lost in. You see, I crave freedom and beauty. I need it. Like I need air to breathe. I need to feel alive in ways that challenge my perception of life and my place in it. I want to feel small in big places. To feel time in infinite ways, and yet, to not feel it at all. I simply want to exist. And I feel like for my whole life, I’ve been running away from that very notion. I thought, what is existence…

    Wild Horses

    Dress: Joie (old) | Bandana: Madewell | Jean Jacket: Madewell They say you can lead a horse to water, but did you know…a horse can lead a girl to beauty? It was late afternoon when I found myself in a golden field, bathed by warm sunlight. My heart awoke to what I saw before me. It drifted through the fields as light as a feather, carried like a sweet melody. Every step I took was not directed by my own, but by the trail of wild horses. In a standoff we stood, staring down the other, wondering where each one of us came from. Him-the wild. Me?-Captivity. There was something liberating in his eyes. As if they were calling me to an unknown…
