On my days off...

Today is my day off. But what that really means to me is that it's a day to do things that bring me joy. And it all starts from the moment I get up.  On days off, if I don’t feel like getting out of bed right away, I just don’t. I’ll stay there maybe read a book for a few minutes, or just be on my phone. And when I come down to the kitchen and I don't feel like making breakfast, I just don't. And if all I want is to sip my coffee slow I do just that. And if that morning latte was so good that I want another one right after, then I go for it!...

Quarantine Update

Has it been 3 or 5 months? All I know is that it was around St. Patrick's Day when my quarantine began. And unlike these pictures show, I've actually stayed pretty busy between work, music, and landscaping believe it or not! I will be giving you an update on that eventually... I do hope you've been able to relax more than me amidst all the craziness happening in the world right now. I can say that my sleep quality has improved significantly in these past few months, maybe due to the lack of strict structure and routine to my daily life. In any case, I'm learning that even as life moves back to "normal" I shouldn't be so hard on...

Nashville Aquaman! 🔱

It's summer time! That means lots of time outdoors for me. And in the water of course! Whether at the lake or pool, you can find me stroking along. Kayaking is one of my favorite social distancing activities 😂 Great to do during the summer months here at the lake. Oh yeah, I'm more of a lake paddler than a river one. I just prefer moving at my own pace, making stops along the way to snap pictures and take in the views. I must admit though, unless the water is above 80 degrees I'm not getting in! I'm a wuss when it comes to water temperature 😂 I just don't see the need to be suffering in cold water. The...

Happy Fourth! 🇺🇸

‪ Kind of an old picture, from like 2 years ago 🙄 But that’s what you get during quarantine 😂 Took it at the salt flats in middle of nowhere Utah, during a cross country road trip! It was actually one of my favorite photoshoots because the whole thing lasted about 10 minutes and over 4000 pictures were taken. We had to rush to get to this location because it was looking like we were gonna miss the sunset. It all payed off and it was magical. Anyway, very fitting for this holiday weekend in which I’ll be lounging by the pool 🏊 Sipping some icy drinks 🍹 And soaking some sunshine ☀️ ‬Socially distancing from the world, and hearing the fireworks...

Nature Therapy

  I'm in dire need of some nature therapy! 😭 Nature is one of my favorite ways to disconnect from the world. It helps me get perspective on life, specially when going through a tough time. It's been months since I've seen the peak of a mountain or heard the water of a creek 🏔 Matter of fact, 9 months to be exact. And even then, it was deserts and canyons that I saw. Which has increased my appreciation for it all 🌎 I promise to never take Mother Nature for granted, but until then I'll reminisce through my memories. I'm available for Video Calls most evenings now! Make sure to book some time with me so we can talk face-to-face...
