Seriously life is SO good. Hawaii life is absolutely amazing and so far these past few months have been like a dream. I am slowly settling into my new life, new schedule, and new home but am loving every minute of it. I’ve made new friends, explored new parts of the island, and have had some amazing (and crazy) new experiences. Life on this little rock in the Pacific is so good and I feel like my life is falling into place so perfectly. How did I end up here?! & how did I get so lucky? Forever grateful for this new chapter in my life.

Hawaii Life: My First Week

August 2, 2016

I officially live in Hawaii. How crazy is that?! So this week has been very exciting and a little bit chaotic because I officially made the move to Hawaii! After talking about moving for four years I finally packed up my life, hopped on a flight, picked up my car, and drove home to my little surf shack in paradise. I can not believe I get to call this place home! My mom and aunt made the trip over with me to help get settled and to explore the island a bit. My first week here has been amazing and I can not wait to see what this life on a little rock in the middle of the ocean will hold. Continue Reading…

It’s been a good minute since I have posted anything on here so I thought I would give a little update on what’s been happening this year! 2016 has been a crazy year for me and some big changes are happening in my life. I got accepted to the University of Hawaii at Manoa in the Spring and in three weeks I will be moving to Hawaii! The plan is to live in Honolulu while I finish school over the next two years and continue to do web and graphic design for work while I am there. I will be finally finishing my degree in Graphic Design and I could not be more excited for this new adventure! Living in Hawaii has always been on my bucket list and I have been playing with the idea of moving for years so I’m stoked to finally make the leap. Alooooha! Continue Reading…

Last weekend I explored the Sawdust Art Festival in Laguna Beach, CA. I had never been to the festival before so I wasn’t sure what to expect but it ended up being a really fun day. We walked around and saw work by hundreds of incredible artists who showcased their photography, paintings, jewelry, handmade goods, and more. There was such a wide range of art and I kept finding little gems around every corner. It was impossible to be bored! One of the little gems that I discovered was Laguna Sunshine by local artist Nansea Williams. Her whimsical style and adorably inspiring wood block art caught my attention and instantly brightened my mood.

Pioneer Town in Yucca Valley, California. Near Joshua Tree National Park and home to musicians, artists, and desert gypsy creatives.
