This blog serves to celebrate tiny victories, inspiration for those times you're stuck in a rut and bring together a community that wants more than a perfectly curated feed of eye candy. Sometimes you just got to throw it out there and see where it goes!

Endless Sunsets

Let me know if you can relate to this: you have a busy week but at some point you feel like you hadn't accomplished shit? Well, that was me last month. I was on a whirlwind of epic adventures but was so wrapped up in the idea of them I really didn't get a chance to catch my breathe. That is until all the moments below happened. The sun collaborated with the earth and provided the most beautiful sunsets that would leave you breathless. The message from the universe was clear: I needed to slow my ass down and relax for a minute. The epiphany hit while at the Griffith Park Observatory when I looked out across Los Angeles during rush hour traffic with my loved ones by my side. I had witnessed 5 amazing sunsets in 5 different locations all within 5 days. My heart skipped a beat. I hadn't felt this live since Black Rock City and to think my ah-ha moment occurred in my own backyard.
