battle born.

as a vegas native, las vegas has been my heart and soul from the beginning.
this city raised me and helped shape me today.
the community in las vegas is actually very small.
everyone knows someone.
everyone knew at least one person there last night.
it is such a terrifying experience to panic and try to figure out if your friends and loved ones are alright.
it was such a terrifying experience for those who did in fact experience the terror.
i will never be able to fathom the things seen and heard last night.
where do we go from here, folks?
i don’t give a fuck what side of the political fence you’re on because i am on the side of human beings.
strip away the politics, the ideologies, the differences, because we are more alike than we are different.
the victims deserve so much more than our political agendas.
although i no longer reside in las vegas, a small piece of my heart still lives there and today it is broken.



life updates.

Bonjour. Thought I would give all of you a brief update(s) on some things in my life.

First off, I have being going strong with following the Tone It Up program. If you’re not familiar with TIU, check out their website¬†here. TIU is basically two ladies who have built a health and fitness empire. They have a nutrition plan, premium workouts, gear, daily workouts on their website, and a bunch of free workouts on their Youtube channel. I am nearing the end of week 16 on this journey of mine. I have seen some results for sure, but I still have a long way to go. All of the exercise has been making me feel really good and happy (endorphins). My eating habits have definitely changed for the better and I allow myself a lovely cheat meal on Sundays. So definitely something to look forward to every week. I am excited to see where this takes me and surely I am excited to see more results! Oh, and they are on tour right now and I am going to the Seattle leg of the tour on 9/13!! It is basically a fitness festival. All the information is on their website if you want to go too.

Secondly, I am going to try my hand at Youtube. I may not be any good at it, but I want to try it. I’m not entirely sure of my intended content but there will definitely be vlogs on my travels. I am still coming up with video ideas by trial and error. The first video will probably be a vlog of my 24 hour LA trip this weekend. Hopefully it turns out good and is at least mildly interesting. I will definitely let you all know when it is up! If anyone has an videos they would be interested in seeing, let me know!

I think that’s it for now.



autumn leaves and pumpkins please.

i am a hopeless romantic

i love your frigid exterior

i long for your shades of amber

i am desperate to see fallen leaves dancing with delight in the streets

i need to see oversized sweaters and flannel around every corner

the mustard yellow, the burgundy, and the evergreen

wrap me in the blanket of your crisp air

you smell like the sweetness of cinnamon and it intoxicates me

i fall in love with you again and again

autumn, although fleeting, you are my forever.




Nine. The number of years we will spend together.

Eight. The next year I get to experience.

Seven. The number of years we have evolved.

Six. The year I found a new home.

Five. The year I started to figure it all out.

Four. Dreams became reality at 35,000 feet.

Three. The first three were the hardest. I probably would never ask for them back.

Two. The number of years left in my 20s.

One. You only get to be in your 20s once.
