Still feels like soup weather to me! 🍲🥖🌧😍 Also still in #fibroflare self care mode so I don’t feel at all like cooking anything complicated 😂 The last few weeks have been really rough for me to be honest (aka I’ve permanently smelt like deep heat & taken more pills than I’d like because having severe pain everywhere is lame😬). It can be frustrating sometimes that your body has all the things going wrong when you’ve been working hard to do all the right things! I guess that’s why they call it a chronic illness... because it’s not about you having control it just literally an illness😂 But I’m hoping that my body is going to do better now that things have quieted down & I’ve finished my study for 2019! Looking forward to some next steps in my health journey in the months to come too 🙌🏻 (Sidenote - super interesting that apparently people with autoimmune conditions shouldn’t take vitamin C because it strengthens your immune system... which therefore makes your immune system better at fighting your own body. Honestly you learn so many interesting things when you’re in the chronic illness world! Although I do just wish they’d give you a manual with your diagnosis 😂🤦🏻♀️). But enough about all that, I’m gonna go curl up with a good book & my soup 😂💕 #WildFridayNight
“You’re allowed to be sad.
You’re allowed to grieve.
To feel the weight of you’re
emotions and to cry oceans
To know that seasons change
just as emotions do and it’s okay
to feel everything or nothing all at
Just don’t let it consume the
very essence of your being.”
journal entry 10/18/19
I’ve decided to get back into writing.
Just thoughts as they come.
I am told is therapeutic.
Lately it feels like my creative side has been on a hiatus. I’m trying to be a good business owner, because it genuinely makes me happy for people to love my designs as much as I do, but my heart is in photography and videography. It’s time to jump back in the creative river and go with the flow. My friend Charley Pangus took this photo somewhere in Redlands.

it’s fall y’all
since I don’t have any new fall pics pls enjoy these photos I took 5 yrs ago🤠
Many months ago now we shot these frames in studio, most of which I never got around to sharing. I came back across them recently and the feelings behind them resonated once again. Regardless of where you’re at in life or on your creative journey, I can’t underscore how critical it is to keep chasing meaning, because when you create or live for the approval of others it’s a never-ending, never-enough, bottomless pit. Fame has become both a game and an illusion, and anyone can play, but it doesn’t mean we’re all healthier or better off because of it. Create the stuff that makes you come alive and the people that resonate with it will come along for the ride.

Throwback to one of my first shoots with @shannacphotography ✨ Should I cut my hair again?! I kinda miss this length.
Year 23: Productivity
Every year since I turned 20, I’ve set a running theme to live by through my next birthday. I try to make every decision, every reaction, and every thought based on this theme. Year 22 was “Empathy.” This year it’s “Productivity.” Since my life is about to change drastically, I want to make sure I take advantage of all of the opportunities that will come my way and waste little to no time. Not everyone gets a second chance, especially a second chance to live their dream life. So this time, I’m making sure I do it differently. I have so much I want to accomplish in just these next 6 months in order to make them reality, I need to have my mind right. Big things are coming y’all and I can’t wait to show my future self what I can accomplish with the right mindset.
The big day is here!! One of the FUNNEST and also most meaningful songs I've written, with two of the most amazing writers. So grateful for all of the collaborations this year!! I've learned/grown/become a better writer and artist. 🎶🎶 Real Love is out now 🤗 Artwork: @amy_will_iams

@fernando_ofarrill - One of the biggest difficulties in wildlife photography, is to be able to control so many things in such a short time and in uncomfortable situations, but 3 minutes with this bear, were enough to be able to concentrate and take out this Photography #earthoutdoors
I hope that when you look up at the moon, and you see the stars shining so brightly over you, you feel seen, known, and understood.
I hope that when you look at the setting sun you don’t fret over the night that is to come, yet you marvel at the fact that in the darkness you will be able to see the stars.
I hope that when you look at the rising sun, you don’t think of all the ways you have to try to do everything perfectly as you go about your day, but that you thank God for His strength and peace that surpasses everything.
I hope you choose see beauty in everything, and you feel like you are exactly where you are meant to be!

this trip has been a nice change of pace from my usual day to day in texas. i’ve found myself having fun and finding true joy in capturing photos of friends and simple memories.
enjoy these photos for a limited time while they’re still up. 🖤
On our third day of exploring Saarland, Germany, we found this incredible steam train. • •
Apparently it only runs a few times per year, so we felt pretty lucky that we were able to see it. This photo took a bit of planning because the train actually runs only in one direction and is pulled deep into the forest before setting off back to the station. • •
Please note, I was not on the track as the train was moving, this was taken before the train was preparing to leave and we gave the train plenty of space. • • •
Thanks to @andreastreitzfotografie for showing us around. #germany30reunified#visitgermany#hansemerkur#handinhand#sponsoredby@germanytourism
“The best way out is always through.” -Robert Frost 📸: @lizaherlands_
Today Liza asked me how I was feeling, I said I wasn’t feeling content, I wasn’t happy and I didn’t know why. She proceeded and asked me where that feeling was coming from and started naming off parts of my body and before she could even fully say heart I blurted it our. She then asked what It felt like and started naming off adjectives but I knew as soon as she asked it felt like rain. I’ve never had someone assess my mood or my emotions like that and it was a little jolting how quickly I moved on from those emotions once I allowed myself to feel them. As much as I don’t like the rain if all you do is ignore it you’ll just continue to get wet.
