Sometimes, the anticipation of something wonderful is even better than the thing itself. Sometimes, the anticipation is everything, the only thing, and when you arrive to whatever you've been awaiting, it's a bit of a letdown...not quite what you'd had in mind, not quite what you'd expected or imagined it would be.

This California trip, though? It was exactly what I'd wished for.

See, I'd hoped for something sort of remarkable, something bordering...if only slightly...on magic. And that's what I got, what I'm still in the midst of. (I thank Disneyland for the magic part. They don't call it the happiest place on Earth for nothing!)

The days were long, sunny and filled to the brim with indulgences: laughs that made our stomachs hurt, decadent meals, long and lingering afternoons spent at the pool.

It's what I live for, really. Time to step out of myself, out of my world, to play the observer to a place different from where I come from. Some people are uncomfortable when they're on the outside looking in, but not me. I find it absolutely freeing and inspiring.

All of this is to say that I apologize in advance for the inevitable gushing I'll be doing for a while. It's just that February was a bit gloomy. And that melancholy, it lingered for a while when March rolled around, threatening to last straight through to April. But this lovely little recess from it all has saved me, leaving me absolutely smitten.

Free To Create

Wednesday, March 4, 2015

We all have our own little worlds. The ones that we live in everyday. We know the weather, the people, the food, the smells, and we know how to interact with it. But sometimes we step out of these words, and into another. Different weather, people, food, smells, having no idea how to get anywhere (thank you iphone!) or what’s behind the next turn. We see that the world is a much bigger place- that it doesn’t revolve around us at all. And that is liberating.

 If you've been following my Instagram posts this past week, you probably already know that I've just returned home from a little road trip to Montana. Those five, blissful days in the mountains reminded me how freeing I feel during and after traveling. Free to create, free to mess up, free to live my life with passion. It’s so important, especially as a creative, to get out of our comfort zones and surround ourselves with the unfamiliar.

 I’m so thankful for this little trip of mine. 

Have a great week! Go explore this great big world we live in.
