An illustrated travel journal from last weekend's trip was my chosen way to capture the feeling of that moment and that place. Swipe for front and back of all three pages!

Monday means trading the desert for a desk.

Recharging my batteries with a weekend in the desert. #vanlife is pretty great.

This weekend we took @vancalledfran out for her maiden camping voyage. There is still a ways to go on the build, but she was a lovely home for two nights in the high desert.

We're van people now. @dosllantas.nick has wanted a van for a while now. I signed some papers with him and now it's here! This is Fran, and we're giving her the full spa treatment. Follow the journey at @vancalledfran

I spent a lot of time thinking about how to leverage creativity into a career. I know this sounds like I'm being hard on myself, but everything I came up with was commercial crap. Giving myself space to just create has helped new and meaningful things come to the surface. I've experimented with new mediums, allowed myself to change direction and tap into deep inspiration. Feeling very at home covered in sawdust. Good things are coming.

Being out on the water is amazing, it catches me in the feels the same way pedaling a bike does. Who knew? Colorado girl finds her sea legs.

With such a big part of my identity wrapped up in cycling, being off the bike is tough on me. I've been scrambling to find another "thing" to give myself relevance. I have to keep reminding myself that on or off the bike, I am a whole person. Thank you @dosllantas.nick for kicking our weekend off with a relaxing evening on the water. It was just what I needed.

I love a weekend camping trip. More mountains, please!

Life is unpredictable, but one thing is for certain, it's better with you!

After trying some YouTube PT that didn't improve my knee issue, I bit the bullet and scheduled an appointment to get a referral for physical therapy. I'm raring to get back on the bike! Trying to be patient and respect my body and the process. Only scoot scoots in the mean time. 📷 : @micasalucasa
