If you have a lot of time to kill – Read it here: Comment Section

It got me thinking…..

Where is the most beautiful place I’ve ever been?

It’s a toss up. Other than Mexico, I have never left the country. Sad, right? But I have seen some places right here in the US that blew my damn mind.

And just like that, itโ€™s SPRING! CHEERS! Well, officially this Saturday. To say I am excited for the season change is an understatement.  Iโ€™m sure youโ€™re sick of hearing me talk about it…HA!!  Spring always seems to be the season we wait the longest for. 

The shift from Winter to Spring always leaves me feeling super inspired too.  Always craving to create + explore after the Winter/Covid blues (which is a legit real thing).  I think we all, mentally NEED Spring..lol.  Everything seems to suddenly come to life!!! Including myself.
