Oh lord, where has the time gone! 

I'm so sorry for not posting. We are getting ready to move after celebrating our one year anniversary which was so fun but packed with activities. For our one year anniversary, we split it all into three days. Friday we went out to eat after we climbed with our friends and we got stuffed. I would say even a little too stuffed for my taste but that's ok. Saturday we slept in a little bit but once we got moving we had a full day. First, we went to a recycled arts and crafts store and made some art pieces. Next, we went to brunch at the first watch and had some amazing food that made my stomach want to burst. Once we were done eating brunch we bought a bottle of wine at Publix and came home to change into our swimsuits for the beach where we laid in the sun for an hour and a half and just turned everything off. 

After being nice and toasted I got surprised and was taken to a paint and sip couples night! Its where a couple brings a bottle of wine and we paint a scene onto a canvas with a partner. It was stressful at first but once we got rolling it was amazing. I think it was mainly because our bottle of wine was a 13%er and it hit pretty hard. I also chose it because it was from New Zealand so I knew I was in for a doozy. 

After our full Saturday, we got up on Sunday and went to Ecofina Springs. I learned that my boyfriend does not do cold water but will do cold weather. It was actually quite amusing and I enjoyed seeing him squirm so much. After we froze in the beautiful water we went ahead and paddled down the rest of the spring and enjoyed the nature we were surrounded by. It took us almost two hours to paddle the entire thing and it was quite the workout. 

Of course that night we had some delicious homemade dessert and enjoyed Zombieland 2. By the way, the movie is actually really good for a sequel. 

And that's it. Our weekend was packed but so fun and I'm glad we got to go out and do things instead of staying home and be bored because of the virus. I'm sure we would have done something outside no matter what the circumstances were but I was happy to be able to move freely and without being stopped because of the virus itself. 

 

But now that we are all done with celebrating and craziness we can move forward and continue to make videos and get ready for my next big adventure! Stay tuned for part 2 of Colombia!

Hello, my beautiful and amazing followers! 

  This week is crazy so sadly I won't have time to work on part 2 of my podcast about Colombia until next week but that is ok. Not a lot of people have seen the first part so I encourage you to take a look at my Youtube channel and to watch it. I will even post it down below so you have easy access to it. But besides the fact that I am loving my support on Youtube, I also want to thank you all for purchasing pieces from me. I started with around fourteen pieces when I moved and I am now down to eight pieces. That is amazing. You guys have been reminding me why I do artwork in the first place and when I move to a bigger place I will be back in the full swing of art. But of course, that's a few months down the road so you will have to be patient with me. 

There are so many wonderful things happening and I am super excited about all of it. If you want to see what I have left in my gallery then click here to go check it out now

So I have an announcement. 

In roughly two months I will be embarking on a trip out west after a twelve-day trip to Peru. I'm going out there for almost two months to scout out the states and to see if I like it out there. I've visited Colorado and California a few times but I didn't do anything else. I'm hoping to move out there with my bf by next summer and if things go well then that is where we will settle for a few years before making another trip to somewhere else. Before you ask, yes I am still looking for campers or a campervan so that I can travel a couple of times a year independently but this is going to be a big change for me either way. I've lived in the East most of my life so I figured I should make the move while I can. 

With that being said it means that I will be out of a job for a few months. I plan to come back to the Destin area once I am done and work for about eight months before I go back to live there permanently. This is big and I am really excited about it but I am also nervous about how it will all go. I plan to make Youtube videos about my travels, sell artwork, and take donations to help me with this amazing journey. I'm not sure how things will turn out and I don't know if I will find somewhere that just..resonates with me but I am going to try anyway. 

I thought I would put down the announcement now so that you guys can follow on my plans, my travel, and posts. There will be a lot to tell you and there will be so much good from this experience. I hope you guys are just as excited as I am. 

If you want to make donations the button is on the right-hand side and if you want to purchase an art piece to help me out then click here to go to my gallery. 

Thank you guys so much for all of the support you have been giving me. It has helped me so much and I am looking forward to continuing this journey I started five years ago. Traveling, loving life, loving myself, and just living. I do what I do because of how much I love who I have become and I hope that you guys will continue to follow as I make this jump.

Hello everybody! 

I am sorry for not posting anything these past few days. It has been a crazy time. Going back to work, climbing again, and managing everything in between has been quite the hassle. It's not bad but it is a lot to take in and figure out. Before COVID I had a routine that made the balance almost perfect but with about two months of "rest" and "quarantine", I have lost all sense of direction. So it has been slow to get back to where I need to be to manage everything. As they say slow and steady wins the race. Of course I am unsure of how true that would be but I'm gonna roll with it. 

Some good news,  with everything, finally settling into place and a week of work now under my belt I can finally start making Youtube videos again. I've been writing down things from Colombia that I learned and I am ready to put in the grind and give you all the information I gathered. In case you guys also haven't heard I am going to Peru in August. Well I am trying to go. I have the ticket all that is left is to wait and see what happens. I think by that time everything will be calmed down enough for us to go. I'm pretty pumped and we are narrowing down our itinerary so that we don't get overwhelmed by everything. 

There are so many things to do and see and I am way to ready for all of this. Once traveling is back in order I am so ready to just take off. Life is crazy when you really just do what you want and not listen to everybody else.

Someone also bought another piece from me which is super exciting because that means....One more is gone! I never thought I would be this happy to say goodbye to the artwork but in all honesty I am trying to narrow it down so that things are easier for when we move again in about a month. 

Ah Yes we are moving again, not far but it is something I am dreading no matter what. 

So I am one step closer to being out of stock but fear not, that doesn't mean that I won't have more for you guys to purchase later on. Right now I just can't make any of my wonderful pieces of art because of where I live. My art is messy, it needs to have space, and requires certain materials I do not have here. 

Hopefully at this new place I will be able to make more art and get the ball rolling again. Until then I just ask that you guys see what I have now and help me say goodbye to all of my artwork. It is much appreciated.

These past few days I have been enjoying spending time with my dad chatting and just getting to catch up with one another. It's only been three weeks since I moved out but I feel like a lot happens in that amount of time. So we sit, drink, get a little tipsy if not trunk and just chat away. Yesterday we even had my sister join for the fun and that was something special. I hadn't seen her in quite some time so it was nice to just hang out and to know that she was doing well. We talked about family, her job, where she was trying to move in Florida and etc. 

Really these past few days have been nice to unwind. To spend time with family is more than most people get and during COVID I know a lot of people can't hang out with their family because they are immunocompromised or they want to be extra cautious because of the possibility of spreading it to others in stores, hospitals and etc. If you know anything about my dad and what he has been posting then you know his thoughts on COVID and if you have read some of my stuff then you know that my thoughts are the exact same. 

I think it's dumb and even though I get being cautious and stuff I still think that all of it should just stop but, whatever. I'm not in charge and I'm not sure what the future holds when it comes to this whole craziness but I do hope that it gets better in the end. 

As of right now my job is back upon but I am unsure of how thins will play out in the next few weeks. We probably will be super slow and we will probably not get as much as we would like to make up for what we lost but we will try. It honestly makes me worried for what will happen to our gym and how this will affect hours. Hopefully, we don't get hit too hard with all of this.
