Winter Tribe Meetup image

Colorado Instameet A few months ago I moved to Colorado and have been exploring as much as possible. I’ve followed Jacob Moon for a while and love his photography. When the #WinterTribeMeetup he organized popped up in my Instagram feed, inviting us to join him and his wife Natasha on an amazing winter adventure in Colorado, I was immediately interested. Why go? Meet Jacob + Natasha? Make new friends that have similar interests and plan future adventures? Go winter camping with the experts? Learn how to make a proper snow cave? Plan to sleep in a tent but end up sleeping in a snow cave? Get out of your comfort zone? Night photography? Winter fun? YES to all the above! While those ...

December Delights image

Happy Holidays December consisted of nights out, get togethers, decorating and baking. With all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, it’s good to remember that what is really important is spending time with the people you love. A Merry Little Christmas Growing up Christmas was always a large gathering of my moms family in New York. Last year I went to New York for Thanksgiving and spent Christmas with my dad and brother in Maryland. This year it was just my mom and I (and the dogs of course) in Colorado. It is always wonderful being around family during the holidays, but to be honest I find it is often stressful and a little chaotic. The last two ...

Fall in Colorado image

One of the things I was most excited about moving to Colorado in September was exploring in fall. The air is crisp and cool. The vibrant aspen trees cover the landscape mountains in yellow and the sun creates a golden glow over the mountains. Yes, most people here are excited for snow because it means skiing/snowboarding, but I will admit winter is not my favorite season. “Autumn…the year’s last, loveliest smile.” ― William Cullen Bryant September I moved the first weekend in September and a week later was off to California with my sister for a belated birthday trip. While there wasn’t too much time in Colorado to explore I did have an impromptu day trip to Vail. Aspens + ...

Super Blood Moon image

Last night, September 27th, the Sun + Earth + Moon lined up in a row to put on a magical show. People all over the world looked up to watch the lunar eclipse. Super Moon + Blood Moon + Lunar Eclipse Why was it special? It was a special one for at least two reasons. First, it was a super moon + blood moon. It happened to be at perigee, the spot in its orbit that brings it closest to the Earth. Some call the totally eclipsed moon a “blood moon” for the red-orange color, which happens once it’s completely in the Earth’s shadow. Second, this lunar eclipse was the last in a series of four in two years. It can happen a couple ...

I’m moving! A new adventure awaits image

Goodbye Washington, DC. Hello Colorado. It’s my birthday month and I’ve got some exciting news to share! Back in January I made a promise to myself that 2015 would be the year to leave everything and travel. To take advantage of any opportunity to discover this beautiful planet. I certainly have traveled, exploring more countries + states in the USA this year than ever before. It has been absolutely incredible and I don’t plan on stopping. With that said, I’ve been seeking a big change since I went to Western Australia (WA) last June. While WA is still where my heart is (priority to move there in 2016) I am trying to plan less and seize new opportunities as they ...
