happy sunday, friends! i am feeling a little wanderlust-y today, but i’m not really going anywhere. and i don’t have any plans for any road trips any time soon, which is perhaps why i am feeling wanderlust-y. still, the desire to travel and my dreamy, contemplative nature, keep life interesting. it keeps me learning. and growing. and hoping. and planning. so, go ahead. dream away. make wishes. write a bucket list. wonder. contemplate, ponder. wander. slow down. go new places […]
sitting at a coffee shop right now, feeling completely blessed and inspired. i’ve got all these connections, vibes, and amazing things going on today. wow. i’m excited. overwhelmed… i’m just breathing it all in. soaking it all in. and preparing to give it all back. happy wednesday, lovely people. peace & love.

for the second part of my photo journey, i thought about focusing on simplicity at home. we all want a peaceful, cozy, friendly, welcoming home. and, if you’re like me, you want your home to be a sanctuary as well. a place that reflects creativity and inspires. a place where everything has a meaning and everything has it’s purpose and place. i must admit, i’m a sucker for interior design blogs/websites and photos. there are a few blogs that i […]

day-dreaming. feels like that’s all i’m doing these days. good thing i found this to remind me to never quit dreaming. ‘cuz writing just ain’t happening these days. i want to post, but it’s not coming out. i think i’m busy living life, which is not bad at all. at the same time, i’m not feeling inspired to write either, which kinda bums me out. but, i’m a big believer in life flowing as it needs to flow. wherever i […]
shhhh…. just be. peace and love, dear friends.
