Desert Gab at your service - blurry, dusty, bruised & blissful. ✨🚲πŸ”₯πŸ‘¨πŸ»

It was so hot in the desert that I legitimately forgot I'd be returning to Maryland to greet my favorite season. πŸšπŸ‚πŸŽƒ
.↑.
Today, I opted to ditch the brake light daze and pull off of my 495 ➡ 66W route during rush hour (it doesn't matter how many times I cross the country, this drive will always be my least fave) and send myself to into the woods, to sit by the water that I'd viewed in standstill traffic on my earlier commute in the opposite direction. πŸ›£πŸš—
β† 
I ended up on a different side of the Billy Goat Trail, which I hiked for the first time on my last birthday. Fall is filled with so much transformation and beauty, and I can't help but smile because I think I've actually made good on a lot of the 28 promises I made to myself since my last time on this trail (link in bio). ✨
β†Ÿ
I dipped my dusty post-Burning Man playa boots in the Potomac, polished them with a wet leaf, and listened to my favorite free soundtrack chirping and rushing on. The chill in the air and leaves falling from above feel like the warmest welcome home.

Plus, I already have a pumpkin waiting for me on the porch. Traffic didn't get the best of me today, the river did. πŸƒπŸŒŠπŸ

"Smile! You're at the biggest party on the planet." -my favorite sign at @burningman, although it felt like climbing, swinging & biking around on a different 🌎 most days (producing no shortage in smiles). 🌞πŸŽͺ✨

As we continue the cross country trek home, I've been struggling with where to begin in regards to expressing how astonishingly heartwarming and inspiring my time at @burningman was. So I'll start with this, the Temple, which is perhaps the most special place on the playa. Swipe to watch it burn.
. ↑.
The energy inside of this structure is indescribable, and strengthened with each passing day as fellow burners clung more memories to the structure. Unique mementos, cherished photos, heartfelt letters and messages written in Sharpie to loves lost or found - be it an old friend, ex-lover, beloved pet or family member. At any point in time, you could hear someone weeping inside in the most beautiful and heartbreaking way.
β† 
I wept, too, recounting moments with my precious Ezra 🐱 and writing messages to my Pop Pop (who I shared an amazing visit with prior to leaving, and who I would learn passed on just 2 days post-playa). β†Ÿ
I also spent one special evening laying inside and staring up at the night sky through the top center. I couldn't leave that night without hugging the grown man who'd been sitting next to me, silently crying, because I had an overwhelming feeling (with no context) that he really missed his mother.
. ↑.
On Sunday night, we all joined together to marvel at the Temple in silence as it burned to the ground, our messages and mementos turning to dust with it - our memories still blazing inside. It was meaningful, powerful, and one of the many experiences at BM that I will be eternally grateful for.
β† 
Because, hey, sometimes you've got to take yourself to a dusty desert to light that special fire in your soul. Ashes, ashes, we all fall down πŸ”₯πŸ’›πŸ”₯

πŸ”₯We're Burning Man bound! πŸ”₯ Mr. & Mrs. Dirty Hippie & I hit the road last Wednesday to head out West to Black Rock City. I've been pretty quiet on the journey here because I've been doing a ton of remote work on the road, which has given me little time to overthink about what's ahead or nurse any expectations. After a stay in good ol' Elko, NV last night we're finally heading deeper into the desert & I can officially say I'm STOKED to unplug from social media & embrace being fully present in what's to come. I'll see you guys on the other side - hopefully with some new friends, greater perspectives & incredible experiences to share! 🌼❀️🚌#charmcitytraveler

When you start thinking about lasagne so you go through your camera roll to reminisce about the 72 lasagnes you ate in Italy but are reminded about that time you ate pizza & drank wine with your favorite weirdo @steppybird while staring at the Colosseum in Rome. Don't let social media fool you though, because I'd be lying if I said this perfect moment wasn't interrupted every 3-5 minutes by some passerby trying to sell us a selfie stick or glow up toy or transparent diamond rectangle with god knows what design in the middle. When in Rome, COME CORRECT. Can someone bring me [insert nonexistent lasagne emoji here] tho I mean damn... 🍝🌍🍷

Woke up in the Land of Pleasant Living missing the emerald waterfall wonder that is Plitvice Lakes. There's just something about the abundant nature in Croatia that enchants you, I can't wait to return and explore more of it. πŸŒΏπŸ’¦ #charmcitytraveler

When it's 11 am & anxiety is plaguing your day, then you remember that you already had 2 panic attacks this month, then you find this picture of the bacon mac & cheese you had at @fiveanddimealehouse on your camera roll & it's somehow the only thing that calms you down... πŸ§€β€οΈπŸ€” #charmcitycravings #keepcalmandeatcheese

Wishin' this lil' lake was still lurin' me in πŸ›ΆπŸŒžβ›°

Happy, happy birthday to @selimjdemirkan, who I can always depend on to remind me that life should never be taken too seriously, that nobody really NEEDS more than 4 t-shirts, and that life goes on even if you don't maintain a Facebook page. Love ya kid, thanks for choosing Mystery Science Theater 3000 as your birthday outing, it was far more dope than I was prepared for. PS: RELAX WHY DON'T YOU πŸŽ±πŸ‘©πŸΌβ€πŸ”¬πŸŽ­πŸŽ‰ #mysterysciencetheater3000 #offthegrid #nowhereman #29yearsyoung

Fun fact: My car, Susan, is named after this flower. BC MARYLAND β€οΈπŸŒ»πŸš— PS: πŸ‘€ my story to see DC bringin' a stellar Sunday drum circle to the table! πŸ₯
