We had a super fun weekend in California with our friends and family! Saturday to Monday, we did all the things! We went to Venice Beach for a lift, Santa Monica Pier for a roller coaster ride, Olvera Street for some shopping, culture and food, Hermosa Beach to spend some time in the waves, La Brea Tar Pit for a living history lesson, The Griffith Observatory for a killer view of the city! We ate amazing food and laughed and loved every minute! 🌴☀️❤️ #caiforniadreaming@fire_side_light@anndoe37@ldac13

Living in a woman’s skin means moving through the world constantly aware of your vulnerabilities. Living in a woman’s skin means looking over your shoulder. It means going to the bathroom in pairs, and ‘text me when you get home’. A woman’s skin can be a terrifying place to live, but in my world, I’m lucky to have found a space where all that worry falls away and being inside this body actually feels powerful as hell.
Contrary to conventional wisdom, I feel safer 40 miles into the backcountry - all by my lonesome, with nothing but a tent for shelter and some layers for warmth- than I do in any crowded city walking the streets after sunset. I don’t fear the threat of bears and mountain lions. I don’t worry about getting lost. What I fear most in this world is the threat of violence all around me.
Chatting with an older female co-worker while she rang up my backpacking groceries, I was told, straight up, “You can’t go out there alone!” I was irritated instantly, but tried to keep the exchange light, so with a chuckle and a grin I responded, “Yeah, I sure as shit can!” .
“No you can’t! What if you get hurt, WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO THEN??” .
With exasperation in my voice and frustration on my face, I tried my best to level with her. “Look, if I get hurt I don’t really know what I’ll do, I guess it would depend entirely on the situation. But I won’t let that stop me from living my life. You and I could literally be having this same conversation on any given day…” .
She softened and started to come around, “I suppose that’s right. You could get hurt getting in your car and driving to work today.” .
With that concession I felt validated and seen, I felt relieved to be finished justifying myself and my trip for the umpteenth time since I planned it months ago. .
She scanned the final item in my basket – a pint of whiskey— and sighed, .
“Now why don’t you just bring him along with you?” “Who? Jim Beam!?” I quipped, “Don’t worry, he’s definitely coming along with me.” .
Why don’t you just bring him along with you?
Why don’t you just bring Daniel along with you?
Why don’t you just bring a man along with you?
To be continued...
Over the past couple weeks we’ve had some really great days. We took Nagi for her second ascent of Mitchell Peak, visited our new house in Tahoe where lil one crushed 8 miles alongside us on the mountain bikes, and had our most successful kayak day ever where Nagi sat calmly on her longest paddle yet. Out on that kayak though, my phone took a swim, now sleepin’ with the fishies, and I spent the past couple weeks mostly social media free. But guess what guys? I survived! I felt so much more present on these adventures without my face buried in my camera app, without buggin’ about getting the banger pic or the perfect insta story. I wouldn’t necessarily say that I recommend losing your phone in a lake, but then again maybe I would. 🤷🏽♀️

I could dance on this cliff all day 🌞🌊
Watched by the sun and listened to by the ocean, it would be an understatement to say that the recharge has been real. •
Oh yeah so @pena_vision and I took some amazing shots this week. None of this would be possible without you! 😌💛💖
I can’t wait to show you all the rest 💫 #oceanviews#model#gothicbeauty#missjerii#malibu#caiforniadreaming
It’s crazy to me that our phones double as our office and camera these days. Mind always blown! The iPhone 8 from @verizon makes traveling that much easier on my #Girlboss life because, well, #bettermatters 👊🏼 #sponsored
Gathering allll the inspiration to go home after this trip and fill my space with even more plants and cacti. + it’s about to be springtime so the idea seems incredibly appropriate no matter the amount I already currently have, don’t you agree!? 😉🙈

He asked me how am I going to spend my day off... and I had absolutely nothing on my mind. 😃 Wow... I’m surprised 😲Lately I was so busy, that it feels amazing to have a day for myself and have nothing planned. Well... I do have a plan to finish eating that huge watermelon 🍉 and binge watch some Netflix shows. Lucky girl! How is your Saturday? Any good plans? Or is your day similar to mine? 💋🖤🍉
Ентоні запитав мене, чи маю плани на вихідний... і я зрозуміла, що вперше за кілька тижнів абсолютно не маю планів. Хоча... у мій план входить доїти гігантський кавун і подивитись сезон нового серіалу на Netflix. Щасливиця? Як проводите вихідні ви?
