In life you can either stand, safely watching from the shore, or jump in and get wet in the waves.

Life is short. Find good people to spend your days with.


no strings attached.

Travel, far and wide, across borders and oceans. See new sunsets. Marvel at the way rocks form over millennia and flora and fauna can look so different in other climates. Travel, far enough away that people don't sound or dress or think like you anymore. Let strangers show you hospitality, and kindness, and remind you that humanity is flawed but beautiful. Travel, let the world show you all the tastes and sounds and sights that you didn't even know existed. It will teach you that you are not the centre of the universe. Travel, even if it's just further down the street than you've ever gone before. We are born explorers.

Beach day.

For one quick second we thought it was raining too hard to go play outside. What a waste of a second.

Proud to have stood alongside thousands of others today, believing that actions speak louder than words, and that it matters. To walk shoulder to shoulder with friends and neighbors and strangers who feel uncertain but hopeful of the future. To see the innocence of children's thoughts on signs and balloons, reminding us how simple it should be. To say to all, 'you are loved, no conditions.' It's that easy: love each other. #womensmarch #womensmarchvancouver

Back to the more typical west coast winter-ing. Finally.

When was the last time you stood still and just watched trees slow dance?

#LAKELIFE , winter edition. Far less tempting to jump in, but still just as gorgeous 🌄
