People always ask me, “How do you have the time to travel so much?” First of all, let us remember that social media is such a dream world not much reality in my scroll roll, know what I’m sayin? . Do any of us really have the time or the money to constantly travel? We are all busy, we all live demanding lives that require our attention. I have 3 jobs I’m certainly not wandering around twiddle toddling my thumbs waiting for my next adventure. It’s how you make what’s important to you rise to the top of that list. My favorite thing in the world is sharing the beauty of the earth with the people I love. We make sacrifices to enjoy these moments, not one of them do I have one second of regret! #makememories#livelife
Does this place make you crave the uniqueness of a desert sunset mixed with swirly red rock? Or a mountain of bacon with a hefty side scoop of pralines and cream? Either way, I need more of it in my life.

What moves some to stop in their tracks while others proceed without notice? When I came up over the hill to witness this scene, I immediately pulled over. It was one of those moments where you feel your heart swell in awe. It is not an epic mountain top which leads the eye to a glorious scene of hundreds of miles of earth, it is not a scene of significance marked by a stamp in your national park book. However, to me, it was unforgettable, unexplainable. This is why I travel, this is why I explore... not to witness that same landmark that millions of others have seen (although those have brought many great memories) but to embark upon a journey, marked by moments of personal significance, that will change the way I feel about a person, a situation, an experience or myself. Nature moves me, and it compels me to dig deeper. With every moment that has brought me this “awe” feeling, I walk away with gratitude, forgiveness, self love, or appreciation for not only my encounter but for something stronger or deeper that I may be pondering or struggling with. This photo will never accumulate a popularity of likes or attention. This photo will slide by the feed of most as it mainly represents a green blur of rapid IG scroll, but to me, this photo means much, much more, and to me, that’s all that matters!
One of my favorite things to do is walk the ocean shoreline at night. Any coast, north, south, east, west, in the water, out of the water, along the path, or with the sand in my toes. Listening to the sound of the waves always brings me peace. Since I don’t live near the ocean, I look forward to these moments with great elation. Soon, I will be able to appreciate the power, beauty, mystery and enlightenment of the deep blue. Until then, a memory of the last time!
I wish I could live on the road...but in-between the small moments of adventure and exploration is a thing called family, work, trial, growth, life. Life must be survived, endured, enjoyed, examined and learned from. It certainly isn’t all sunsets, daisies and deep fried sushi (mmmm ), but it still must be loved!
This pic makes me laugh, no clue what the name of this arch is, that would be past my brain capacity to remember such important stuff. I call it the “wow arch,” because the solo traveler who was behind us said, “wow” at least 697 times on this 1.5 mile hike. It was the only word he muttered the entire hike... maybe the only word he knew? Either way, thanks for the giggle wow dude!
I had the weirdest dream about Iceland last night!...
I was on the edge of a very sketch, moss covered cliff, I was watching this majestic waterfall scene in front of me, and then...(this is where it gets... ) people started catapulting off the waterfall... but they were all frozen solid, perfectly placed like star fish on giant sized porous rocks, covered in solid sheets of ice, all of them with massive smiles and raised eyebrows on their flawlessly fixed, frigid faces #ffff . As they plummeted off the edge, they hit the bottom, and then dramatically sprung up out of the icy water, where they remained....afloat....bouncing off of each other like frozen, smiling, pinballs. 🧐_
I can conclude that this only means one of two things-
1) it’s time to wax my eyebrows
2) low carb diets will kill you
• Oh and here is a lovely, insanely slippery and frozen memory in Iceland....cuz, fitting.

One of the most frustrating feelings is that of being bamboozled! So much right now! I ordered some vitamins online in December since this company I came across mentioned they were running a special. So I ordered a 30 day supply to try it out. As I checked my bank account today I noticed two unusual withdrawals...long story short, I called the company and got this ridiculous reply, “Well in order for your vitamins to be $30, you needed to cancel your order by Jan 10th at 11:36 pm, under a full moon, with 1 shoe off and a gecko on your left shoulder, other wise your vitamins would be $160, which is still 60% off we might add, would you like to order more product ma’am?” Um ya no, you crazy cheating lunatics, I don’t know how you sleep at night, cancel any and all affiliation with me, you swindling rats!! •
On another note, FRIDAY!!
