One thing my parents always taught me growing up was not to force anything.
This doesn’t necessarily mean not to fight for everything…just don’t force it. Sometimes we try SO hard to try to make situations work out the way we want them too, but maybe it’s just not meant to be? MAYBE something better is just going to easily fall into place as soon as you let it go.
Zach and I were looking for a place for months! We wanted so badly to move to California and nothing was working out. After giving it a rest, we decided it was best to stay in Utah. As soon as I let the whole California thing go, I got a wonderful job in Utah, we found a place we adore (I’ll post pictures when we move in), and I realized how much I love it here. The city, my extraordinary girls, the beautiful mountains, and everything else Utah has to offer.
If nothing is working out, just leave it.
It could work out later, but right now it’s just not meant. Sometimes closing a door means 2 more will open.

Ain’t that the truth. Start planning a trip because…..
1.) It gives you something to look forward to/something to obsess over.
2.) If you actually start planning it entirely, maybe you’ll actually go?
3.) I can promise you.. it’ll indeed make you richer– at heart and at mind, which is all that matters.
My next trip I’m planning is to Vietnam or maybe a surf trip up the West Coast…
Where do you plan on going?
Welcome to the most glorious home in Captain Jack’s wharf, also known as the the nation’s most beautiful row of bay bungalows. Located in the heart of Cape Cod, this home is almost persuasive enough to make me cheat on the West Coast. These cottages surrounded by the sea are maintained by their unofficial captain, Gregory Saint Jean. I’ve decided I am going to contact this man and demand to live in the lighthouse. Enjoy these pictures and fall in love just like I did!
Who’s up for living here with me?
So guys! I had the RADDEST opportunity to work with the non-profit Fight The New Drug to design a limited edition print for their store. FTND is an organization that provides information on the harmful effects pornography has on society today. They are an awesome group of people who have a wonderful insight on how to help our youth overcome their addictions.
Here is the link to the interview I did with their Social Media Director, Robbie Tripp:
and here’s where you can buy a limited edition print:
If you know someone who is struggling from a pornography addiction, check out Fight the New Drug and see how they can help. Thanks guys!!
1. Always look for new opportunities.
2. Do things that make your soul happy.
3. Takes Chances
Today me and the siblings, minus Erin, (we miss you SOOO much) explored downtown a bit and went to Craft Lake City. I could’ve spent ages there. The artwork there was top notch. I ended up buying two prints, a bracelet, and a pair of earrings (I went a little overboard.) Although I was literally mesmerized by every artist, my favorite booths were Crow Leather Goods, My Little Belleville, Love Frida, and Bee Teeth. Check them all out.. you will fall in love. There was soothing live music everywhere, a bunch of trendy little families, amazing SLC artists, I was there with two of my fave people, and it was right in the heart of the city I call home. Can’t wait for next year!
