Who inspires you? Photo by @chriskpickens #liveauthentic #livefolk.
I am so thankful to be surrounded by such amazing friends that constantly support me and my dreams. I hope that I am able to be as encouraging of all of them. One of my very closest friends @roadsendworkshop is currently trekking across the US in the most beautiful vintage airstream. Along the journey they are teaching workshops dedicated to photography. I owe so many of my photography skills to the amazing mentorship and education they have been kind enough to give me over the years. I sincerely hope you will follow along with their beautiful journey.
They say that if you want something speak it into existence. Reach out to the universe, the energy of nature, and the gods above for guidance, for strength, and for energy to achieve that goal, that dream, that destiny. It’s funny how the universe has a way of providing exactly what we need, even if it isn’t exactly what we want. Today I am offering my praise and gratitude to the universe for allowing me to know each of you and to know each of the people in my life. I pray that each of you finds that same voice and same strength today with whatever you might be going through or going towards. Photo by @kuscheiart in Austria.
What if we took all our perceived successes and perceived failures and the passage of time and life and experience to fuel our new chapters and our new adventures rather than allowing those times to hold us in the past. Perhaps if we channeled all of those shades of life into the future we could build a tomorrow that is even more amazing than we perceived our greatest moments of the past. Photo by @jguzmannn

At some point in life we learn that we must spend the occasional season sitting, reflecting, dreaming, simply being still, and knowing that this calm and quiet will prepare us for the coming seasons of change ahead. Allowing ourselves to live within those calm seasons does not make us lazy or pathetic or less than, it allows us to the develop the tools and strength we need to build and grow and do mighty things.

@evakosmasflores graces the cover of @wherewomencook’s Slow Living issue. I couldn’t be more proud every time I see the issue in stores. I really hope you take a moment to check out WWC’s mission to support and promote female makers, creatives, and cooks from all across the globe.
