black & white adventures

Isn’t there something so simple & magical about black and white photographs? It’s as if they make time stand still even more than a photograph already does. Frozen in place. It makes you believe that our days are never ending, that we get to stay forever in this calm, infiniteness magical moment. Where there is comfort, familiarity, and most importantly peace.

february detox | a month of soul-searching & cleansing

I am so very excited to share about a huge cleanse I will be doing for the month of February, cheating, if you will, because February only has 28 days, but I will be doing a rest & retreat for a month that includes all things related to re-centering myself, finding focus on things that matter the most to me, indulging in new projects & hobbies, reconnecting deeply with loved ones, focusing more on my nursing passion, and to practice present awareness with my son. This means I will be completely disconnecting myself from social media (Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook – see ya!). I will continue to write in my blog because this is my space, for me. There isn’t any expectation that any one may read it, which is what I love (but if do you care to follow along, please subscribe! I’d be happy to hear feedback & comments – it’s always a pleasure!)

I’m stepping away from everyone else’s life to focus on my life. For me (well duh it’s obvi for me haha). I’m calling February my month to soul-search and cleanse my soul. I’m even considering doing Whole 30 (+ wine). Adding that to my workouts, this lady may just have a hot bod by the summer 🙂 Continue reading “february detox | a month of soul-searching & cleansing”

a playlist for a long ride

I wanted to make a playlist that meant something. A long kind of ride playlist. The kind where the road is the only thing ahead of you. Where thoughts fill your mind and music makes you wander. I wanted something that hit the soul and gives you all the feels.

I especially love it for fall. Leaves falling. People falling in love.
