The worst part of living on the road? Not having the people you love a short drive away. This past week we had my best friend and her little family visit to explore Joshua Tree National Park. It was magical, but ended too quickly. We just wish everyone we loved traveled and experienced stuff with us all the time. This life is magical, and even more so when you have your favorite humans with you. ❀✨ pic by @krysc1987

We had an amazing photo session with the magical and inspiring @cassierosch. I still cannot get over how much I adored her, and the photos she has sent us are πŸ˜³πŸ˜πŸ€—πŸ‘ŒπŸ½ Pure magic. ✨Check out her amazing work!!!

Yesterday, I wandered around a magical cactus farm with our current neighbors and new friends @lifeamongpines. It always makes me swoon hardcore. I don't know what it is about plants that makes me so happy, but they do. β€πŸŒ΅πŸ€—

This little dude has been all over me this morning. Such a little cuddly thing. 😊It is probably because it got a bit chilly, but I like to think it's because he loves me... πŸ˜…

This statue is was amazing. It was so fun wandering around and checking out these incredible things. I may have gotten sliced open from goofing off with the scorpion statue- but it was worth itttttt! 😜

People ask me what my secrets are to getting rid of 90% of my clothes. The answer isn't well thought out or calculated. I saw what my lifestyle could be and kept my eyes on the prize. I went through every item of clothing I owned. It was a lot- I had a closet bedroom, and it was a mess. I had wayyyyy too much clothing. And 90% of my collection I didn't even like that much. I kept the 10% that I loved, that fit well, and I felt amazing in! That's all I got for ya. #nobigsecrets πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

My hair is just getting bigger and bigger! πŸ’πŸ» πŸ‘€

I actually got dressed!! When you work from home as a nomadic piece of trailer trash it's hard to look nice for your slowly dying fashion blog... 😜 I am trying to breathe new life in my fashion blog making it more of a journal rather than just me looking semi put together. I can't promise it will be updated more but it will be less about the fashion and more about my lifestyle. Hope that's cool. 😎

Guys. I made this. I also launched my little Etsy shop yesterday and almost sold out of my rings. Seriously. What?! Ok, enough about me what about you? Do you have a new passion you are pursuing? Any new hobbies? Telllll meeeeee! I want to put all these good vibes I am getting back out into the world.β€πŸ€—

Today was cool. Hung out in East Jesus with my new friend @jeweler.on.the.road I grabbed a few photos of her for her website, and she taught me some new techniques. I still have so much to learn but will probably be selling some small items soon! Officially set up my Etsy shop. πŸ’ͺ🏽 If you would have told me 3 years ago that I would be living on the road and teaching myself how to silversmith I would have gawked... Lesson learned? Don't be afraid to try new things and don't be afraid to be uncomfortable. Those two things have gotten me to this life. I have never felt more alive. πŸ™ŒπŸ½

Trying to never take any days for granted with our babies. As much as having four pets isn't the perfect situation for traveling full time, it is the life we chose and I wouldn't have it any other way. We love our little fluffy family. Feeling thankful for this one, and our three other loves. πŸ˜πŸ™ˆ

I woke up in the best mood this morning. The soft breeze off of the Salton sea blowing in through my window, Foxey as my little spoon and Nimbus as my big spoon. It was so peaceful, sometimes you just have to stop for a moment and realize how amazing life is. I am honored to live the life I do, and try not to take any day for granted. I hope you do the same! ❀❀❀❀
