My (very wise ) father has always told me that most people aren’t lucky enough to even have 5 real friends in their life. Like many things, I used to kind of just roll my eyes and think “that’s ridiculous, whatever dad” but I have come to learn that - as with most things - he was indeed right. This girl is number one on that list and always will be. I’m thankful everyday to have such beautiful people in my life (inside and out ). She has been my best friend since we were 12 and 13. I’ll be honest - it feels like there have mostly been downs in our lives but we have been there holding each other up the whole way (and looking good while doing it ) and can now laugh at even some of the worst parts. A #friendship like this is a friendship that has been forged for a lifetime. To use a word from the legendary @thatkevinsmith : thanks for being my #heterolifemate, @leighannelese #bffs❤ #bffsforever #bffsforlife #womancrush #seattlelife #adventurepartner #womeninspiringwomen #womenhelpingwomen #avoguelife

  • I’m in love with cities I’ve never been to and people I’ve never met. // If you can’t read the words I wrote: “This city is magic. It tells you what you need when you didn’t even know you needed anything. Wandering its streets is like falling in love over and over again, feeling the excitement of the unknown.” : : : #travelholic #travelquote #travelersnotebook #havecamerawilltravel #lifestylephotographer #nikonf2photomic #nikonf2 #filmisnotdead #newyorkcity #loa #mindfulness #sayyes #avoguelife

  • Amazing what some gorgeous blooms can do for morale. // If you aren’t blooming, figure out why. Find the root of the toxic weeds that are draining you and rip those bad boys out. Sometimes it hurts and you rail against it with everything you’ve got. Sometimes it’s a breath of fresh air and a weight off your shoulders that you didn’t know was there. Either way, you are in charge of your life, your happiness, and your destiny. Things don’t always go as we planned, but that’s life and you’ve gotta roll with the punches and bloom where you are planted, honey. 💐 : : : #loa #bloom #bloomwhereyouareplanted #makelemonade #mindfulnessmeditation #mindfulness #survivor #begratefulalways #beauthentic #authenticity #downtoearth #abusesurvivor #feminista #nastywoman #strongwomenquotes #selfacceptance #graceful #determinedtosucceed #discoverunder10k

    It’s true, you know. The more I let go of my expectations of what my life should look like, the incessant busy-ness of trying to keep it all together (and look good while doing it ), and what even the most important people in my life think about me (within reason, of course... don’t be a troll ) the more freedom I have to find what matters, my right-now purpose, and let my creativity flow. That, my friends, is a recipe for good things. ❤️✌🏻✨ : : : #loa #mindfulness #livingmybestlife #flashesofdelight #careless #lovemore #manifest #empoweringwomen #beauthentic #thatauthenticfeeling #beconfident #beyou #effyourbeautystandards #queen👑 #queen #beaqueen #goodvibesonly #positivity #idgaf

    Go ahead and wear that bold makeup look that makes you feel fierce, rock the outfit that makes you so confident you are walking on air, and yes dance and sing and laugh like there is no one around but you and your best friends because people are going to stare regardless... may as well make them a little bit jealous of your self expression. 😘 // Who cares what anyone thinks as long as you are happy with who you are?
