Sky ablaze in an orange haze
Twinkling city tries to steal my gaze

Pockets of blue sky give way to this divine sigh.

Dark is the undertone
But happy is my heart
Reflection.
Connection.
Water still like the evening air

This was a special one. .

We couldn't decide on one so we decided to post a few for our #tripplebuddychallenge .

Reaching the home stretch of this challenge and it's been great having these two as accountability partners! Couldn't have done it without the support of all the awesome coaches and staff as well! .

May you have sweet dreams of ice caves, colder climates, and adventures that imbue your heart with such radiance, that it shines through every fiber of your being!

Hard to believe it's already half way through November.
Really missing these colors and fallen leaves right about now. .

Today I was like a kid in a candy store. I finally made the time to try out Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and HOT DAMN did I love it!! Nothing quite like being completely out of your element and saying "f*ck it, here we go!" #jiujitsu #meetmeonthemat #boom #winning #basics #noob #loveditanyways #grappling

Don't worry guys, I'm 100% sure I have no idea what I'm doing.

October has always been a special month, but especially so since I get to celebrate the birthdays of these two! Without them I wouldn't be in this world and without their love and guidance I wouldn't be half the woman I am today.
To my mom & dad, I love you.

In honor of #worldmentalhealthday I'm gonna type some #realtalk inspired by a conversation I just had with a close friend. At any point in time we are all going through some shit. Let's be honest. For some it's easy to talk about, others not so much, sometimes it's a dance between wanting to be around your support system or retreating into seclusion. Personally I've had it both ways. More often than not the fear and guilt of being a burden to someone who offers to listen, or the feeling of being selfish by talking about myself, has me deflecting questions with other questions. The typical "but first how have you been and what's been going on with you?" is my escape to not talk about myself.
I've known this for a while but was reminded of it tonight when I was asked question after question without pause, and, had been called out about never answering questions that are asked of me.
So what's the point of this? Well, maybe it will make you question how you really are, if you're being truly honest with yourself. Even if you aren't as ok as you seem, it's ok to deal with whatever sh*t is going on, but just remembering you don't have to go through it alone.
Never forget, the road to self discovery is never ending.
End Rant.

Gives a name to a mood in which one feels that the universe as a whole possesses a mysterious, elusive, but real, beauty.

Yesterday was one for the bucket list and boy did we have to earn it. Lots of trekking just to get to this beach followed by traversing across miles of igneous rocks. Have no doubt it was epic fun every step of the way and well worth it to get within feet of the lava!

This is Bodhi. He's a simple kinda guy who likes being outside and going for long walks. Be like Bodhi. (Disclaimer: Bodhi also requires mandatory breaks during fetch otherwise he would run himself silly)

It's been a whirlwind the past 48 hours but the love and support from family and friends has been nothing shy of incredible.
It's not goodbye, but rather, see you later.

The red glow sinks deeper into the horizon
Creeping slow out of sight
Unwavering in its burning desire
Wanting to be seen if even for a moment more
Surrounded by gray
The red embers still seem to find their way
Eventually the moment comes to pass
Eclipsed, the horizon wins
Fret not, for tomorrow we'll play again.

My fiery little #vanadite I found at the Culver City gem show this past weekend. It was such a fun experience to walk around and see all the incredible rocks and minerals from around the world.

Two sides of the sparkle coin... On the one hand you have the pretty photo that might be considered aesthetically pleasing and tame. The other, well that's the true unfiltered joy that always seems to work its way through no matter how much I "try" to take a pretty picture.
