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.

“Bright yellow sparks glisten around the landscape
Sheer environment expose
Warmth slinks down every step
So– Invigorating
Spur like rays muster in long light
The wolves wait to howl
Soon–Bunch of flowers
Huddle in with sunlit love
Luminous rave.”

Good-bye Summer. I guess I’m ready for Sweater Weather.

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?

 

 

My Future Home?

Adventures

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!

Limited Edition Print!

Adventures, Artwork


 IMG_3570 love-alone 

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:

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!

Mini Golf Adventure

Last night I needed any excuse to get out of the house after staring at a screen designing all day. So Zach and I drove around trying to think of things to do. Bowling wasn’t gonna work because I have the sweaty hands syndrome so it always results in me getting way too frustrated and bailing. Then Z requested mini golf. Do people even mini golf anymore? Anyways, I was super stoked because I basically kick ass at it. We went to Cherry Hill to play (the place gives me the creeps, sorry for those of you who have lovely childhood memories here.) It was so fun! Zach actually kept score the whole time, something I’ve never done. We were pretty feisty the whole time. Zach’s really competitive, so he gets in your head and basically convinces you that you aren’t good. What a guy… Sadly, I ended up losing by only 4 points… so devastating. Oh well, he knows I’m better 😉 he just got lucky this time.

After I ripped up the score card, we grabbed some In n’ Out and called it a night.
