It’s funny how life works out. Sometimes you jump and the Universe catches you. Sometimes you jump and you fall on your face, but you get up, dust yourself off and try (or jump) again and the Universe catches you. Sometimes, it’s the small voice that speaks inside that says, remember. And I remember. I remember this. My career mentor and friend, Jack Daniel, once said to me: “It’s the quality of life that will matter, not the quantity or the […]
I posted this on Instagram: From our first day to our last day and some of the stops in between. 2 strangers who decided to merge their Aussie Adventure into one for a while and make dreams a reality. I’ll miss morning coffee and walking behind you so I can stare at your butt 😜. I leave you with this Tanguy, “May the long time sun shine upon you, all love surround you, and the pure light within you, guide […]
Iceland. I can tell you that I never thought about Iceland as a travel bucket list item nor have I ever given it any thought of travel. In fact, before I went to Iceland, I couldn’t tell you a lot about the dang island. So when my travel-in-shenanigans-partner-in-crime Amy asked, “Wanna go to Iceland with me?” I of course said “Yes.” Why wouldn’t I go? New country. An island. Why not? My main goal was to finally see the Northern […]

I could probably blame Jimmy Buffett for my wanderlust and introducing me to the Aboriginal songlines, but I can only thank him. His music has been a friend, a comfort, and inspiration for me. If he hadn’t taught me the meaning of songlines or dreaming tracks, I would have eventually discovered them on my own. This past weekend, I added 2 more permanent reminders from Jimmy Buffett on my skin. His song “La Vie Dansante” has always reminded me the kind […]

This picture is how I feel about life in general right now.
FUCK EVERYTHING AND BECOME A PIRATE.
That was on the back of a menu at a fabulous bar/restaurant in Bondi in Australia and I for the life of me cannot remember the name of the bar/restaurant but I also took the other photo below there too because 1) the served Sailor Jerry Rum 2) who doesn’t like tequila when they’re getting their festive on and 3) it says Merry Fuckin Christmas.
The only way that message would have been topped was if it had said: Merry Fuckin Christmas Y’all.

This quote could not hold better advice for any dreamer out there. Such a simple statement, but so much truth in 12 words. First, I have to thank Karen Peace (follow her on Twitter or Facebook) for posting this on her Instagram because it just strengthened my belief and motivation that the goals I set for myself in 8 months are right. Not that I have/had a doubt they were the wrong goals, but had the fleeting thought of “are you just obsessing […]
