I can’t wait to spend another year eating waffles on the weekend with you 👬

The light is fading fast on 2018. It’s been quite a year y’all, quite a year indeed. But as hard as it’s been at times, there’s so much more to be grateful for. Thanks for making it such a great one! 🎊

I know it might sound strange but stormy days at the beach are my favorite! Especially when I get to spend them with these two #👫

Your story is important and tomorrow needs you.

I was recently talking with my mom about how we’d always try so hard to have a perfect Christmas. Find the perfect tree, make the perfect pie, or find just the right gift. But as you know, it’s not always the most wonderful time of the year. Sometimes it’s actually the hardest and for many it can be one of the loneliest. Maybe it’s the first year there’s a vacant space at the table and every tradition is just a painful reminder. Maybe your loneliness today has you hurting so much you find it hard to see a tomorrow.

This week I got a courageous call from someone I love very much who has been in a difficult place, couldn’t see a way out and reached out for help. We immediately drove to pick him up and bring him to a safe environment to receive professional support. I’m proud of him for calling and being so brave. It was the right decision. Because he is NOT ALONE. There IS HOPE. And he IS SO LOVED.

It’s moments like this that remind me why it’s important for us to cultivate kindness this time of year and give people one of the greatest gifts: gratitude. Telling people how much they mean to us and how grateful we are to have them in our lives. The holidays can hurt the most, but they don’t have to and we can be the reason.

If you or someone you know is in danger of hurting themselves or others, talk with them. Ask them questions. It’s so important and not as scary as you might think.

If you’re struggling and need help, please call the Suicide Helpline 1-800-273-8255 or text the @crisistextline: 741741. YOU ARE NOT ALONE. THERE IS HOPE. AND YOUR LIFE STORY MATTERS.

The truth is metal illness affects one in every four people. Right now there are tons of incredible organizations working around the clock to support people in crisis. During the holidays these support centers receive a much higher volume of messages and could really use our support. Here are a few I give to:
@twloha
@trevorproject
@mentalhealthamerica

Tomorrow needs you. Take some time and tell someone that today. It truly is the gift everyone needs. Pain is real but so is hope.

The past few months it’s been such a treat to work with @CanonUSA team to tell stories with the new #EOSR for their #BeTheRevolution campaign. I spend a lot of time traveling to capture stories and having all the capabilities of a full frame camera packed inside of a smaller mirrorless body has made it a perfect travel companion. I’ve had a bunch of people reach out and asking about the new camera and my experience shooting with it. If you have any specific questions, you can leave them in the comments below and I’ll do my best to answer them. #ad

It’s easy to lose count, it’s hard to forget your favorites.

We can be the reason this is the most wonderful time of the year for someone else 🎄

Someone should get married here 😉

After a beautiful day of driving along the brisk and rugged Valahnúkamöl coastline, it’s always a treat to come back and walk the quiet streets of #Reykjavík. The #HarpaConcertHall is truly beautiful inside and out with giant stained glass windows that are inspired by the basalt landscapes of Iceland. ⠀

✨There’s room for you
and room for him,
room for her
and room for them.
Room for young
room for old.
Room for shy,
room for bold,
room for short
and room for tall.
Tell me how is there
room for all?
Here is the secret
to making rooms great:
we refuse to ever
make room for hate.✨

I love how he sees the world, and I’m always so encouraged with how he creates art that is so meaningful and profound. He just shared a new post: “I’m happy you are here” - go go go read it and let’s fight to find moments today to pause and make sure every person in our presence knows we are glad they’re here and that there is room.
