My California Adventure: Summer of 2017
Exploring LA was a blast. (Summer 2017)
A tandem bike is much harder than one would expect, but what better place to take on a challenge than Venice Beach with your best friend on 1 hour of sleep.
We ran into a guy who wrote poems after you gave him a topic in Venice Beach. Mine was about adventures, considering Mel and I were on an adventure.
My first ever Vegan milkshake.
This was the first day I drove in LA. Driving in LA is probably one of the craziest things I have ever done.
Hydrating is always a good thing when you are enduring the summer heat of LA.

Every time I see an elephant I think of my friend Cat. She was a foreign exchange student from Thailand. We both dream of riding elephants in Thailand together one day. I painted this mug in honor of her.

I have had the privilege of vacationing to the same beach every year for as long as I can remember. The view of the ocean and the sand beneath my toes takes my breath away every time.
I have found a new passion called music. This was the day I purchased my first record.
There is something so beautiful about how a jellyfish glides through the water. I yearn to glide through life with such grace.
A glorious novel grasps my attention. Nothing brings a variety of emotions more in my life. I was reading my favorite book of all time; I could not contain my shock at the turn of events.
Community. I truly believe that leading a group of girls benefits the leader more than the ones being led.
Sunsets take my breath away each and every time I see one. The sky is a canvas waiting to be painted every evening.
Beauty is the only way to describe this chai latte. I
