It's almost that type of year again to be jumping off cliffs and exploring the world. But for now I'm just stuck at the computer screen making the places I want to go. This is a remake of my first attempt at an over under shot and I think it looks a lot more realistic. Tell me what you think of it below😊

Sunset at Gore Lake. Anyone else itching to get outside and sleep under the stars?
April 22, 2012 - If you're anything like me, this is "real life". Absolutely aware, lucid, content and living in every moment while grateful to have another. Those obligations and jobs we must return to is just a break to get back to living wild and free.
A beautiful morning looking over Toktogul Reservoir, Kyrgzstan where you can spend hours daydreaming because you've got nowhere else to be...
Took this back in October.
We had slept under the dazzling sights of the milky way and woke up to the breathtaking desert sunrise.
I may feel like the PNW is where I belong, but I have found a new appreciation for the wonders of the desert in the last year.

Sun's finally out. To get grab a carafe of cocktail, sit by the water, and people watch all day long. Here's to #TheGoodLife! 🥂
B A L A N C E - “there’s no time to re-write your story when you’re too busy hustling”
It’s easy in the creative world to get swept up in the hustle. Yes, working hard for your goals is important, but as the type of person who has an “all or nothing” mindset, running my own business full time, I found myself focusing on hustle as the #1 key ingredient for success. Once I realized I had full control over my life and my reality, it became like an addiction.... setting crazy amounts of goals, becoming SO focused on accomplishing them.... that I stopped to look around, and realized I had created a LACK of creativity in my life.
This week, I spoke at a workshop for vision boarding and goal setting. As you can imagine this was a dream opportunity for my passionate drive to succeed. But the occurrence of the workshop happened to lineup perfectly with the week I burnt myself out. Like the universe giving me this lesson with the perfect dose of irony 😹👌🏻 This week I realized that I had been WORKING for two months straight... without truly resting. Yes, I have things like meditation and yoga as a part of my routine, but my routines, my pomodoro cycles, the rigid scheduling and structure I had put on myself, eventually wore me down without any true time to just rest.... to just be....
I crashed. But not hard. I simply reassessed, with the help of some incredible friends, who literally had to look me in the eyes and ORDER ME to stop working, and take time to rest. I learned the importance of truly resting, of ACTUALLY turning my brain off. Because when we turn our brains off, THAT is when we creatively process and reflect. That is where growth happens. That is where we re-write our stories. I seem to re-learn this lesson frequently, but each time I take something new away. This time, I learned that answers only come in silence. I learned that I can’t effectively accomplish all my goals when I’m working nonstop. I learned to build in time to rest, and force myself to let loose, and have FUN. Because in the end, it’s all rigged in our favor! We are meant to THRIVE. 🔥💕

The European side of Shanghai. I was actually very surprised to see these buildings. I mean I totally understand that China had its own bout of colonialism, however I half expected most of these buildings would have been destroyed or left for abandonment after the civil wars. I sort of loved it.
Also fun fact. One of the Ming Emperors was obsessed with European clocks.
Anyone else here like fishing? I love it but where I live currently there’s only fly fishing and I’m really bad at it ☠️ any tips?

It’s evident by my the look of my Instagram page that I’ve been back and forth between the styles of editing I use/enjoy most. Can’t say I’ve finally found one favorite, but I have developed a preset that I now confidently build off of. It’s fun and quite interesting to look back and see my progress and growth, but also nerve racking because it makes me want to go back through and re edit all of my collections every time I develop a new skill haha. Maybe someday I will...🤷♀️

The importance of having an Instagram boyfriend/ husband: .
💁🏻♀️ You will always have someone to hold your camera equipment stuff whilst taking that perfect Instagram pic
💁🏻♀️ You can always order more food at restaurants to feed both of you and make that foodie table look fuller .
💁🏻♀️ You don’t need to ask a stranger to take photos of you. Just make sure he knows what your initial photo idea is!
💁🏻♀️ He can always give you a physical lift when there is a pesky car parked right in front of that cute facade you wanna take pictures of, so the car won’t ruin your photo anymore. .
💁🏻♀️ You will always have someone to explore with (which to me is the best perk)
P.S. Please take this lightly, I’m only joking. Maybe. A little bit. 🙃
P.P.S. You can clearly see how much fun I’m having at the airport awaiting my flight to Riga! ✈️
Me in Winter: I can’t wait for the trees and flowers to come back to life, I’m going to spend every minute exploring and photographing them.
Me in Spring/Summer: *sleeps on a rug in the garden for 10 hours straight*
I get so little done when it’s warm. I’m actually kinda glad it’s usually cold here, because that’s what probably keeps me working 😆
