Space Case Me

I'm a wandering soul with chameleon-like tendencies. Tracking me down can be tricky! I am constantly chasing my passions and searching for a dose of inspiration. 

I'm a freedom finding babe from Houston, Texas. I grew up in the city, but stuck to my tomboy ways, climbing trees, playing in the dirt and making friends with every little critter I could find. I've always been more comfortable outdoors. I love getting lost, going on adventures and I definitely don't mind taking the road less traveled. 

I moved to San Diego for college where I studied Journalism with an emphasis in Public Relations at SDSU! I fell in love with the city, but mostly the beach and made some of the best friends a girl could ever ask for there! My restless ways brought me to Maui after graduating from college and realizing an office job wasn't for me. 

I don't eat meat, but I never get sick of sushi! My favorite color is orange and I never wear the color purple! I changed my own diapers and learned to tie my shoes when I was 2! I love doing yoga but I hate running! I'm addicted to online shopping, but dread trying on clothes. I'm a hardcore gemini, but I'm terrible at talking. I love to read and write but I'm insanely afraid of public speaking. I hate taking showers, but wouldn't mind a bath full of bubbles! I could live at music festivals forever, where you'll find me jumping, dancing and jamming with my besties! I love my little sister more than words can describe! My grandpa is my biggest hero and my fiancé is my best friend!

A day in the life of me is different from one day to the next. I'm what you'd call a melting pot of passions. It's hard for me to focus on one thing. I love spending time on the coast, swimming and hiking and taking photos. You can also find me daydreaming, adventuring into the woods or with my head buried in my bead box making jewelry. I'm a space case, but I like it that way. 

Inspiration has always been huge for me. If I'm feeling uninspired, something in life needs to change. I'm constantly searching for the next thing to do, next place to visit and next hike to explore. New experiences spark that fire in my belly. If you know me well, you know I'm quite shy until I get to know you. I definitely don't wear my heart on my sleeve. I keep everything to myself unless I know I can trust you. The people you surround yourself with are incredibly important. I may not have a huge group of friends, but the ones I do have mean the world to me! They are my ride or die! I am incredibly lucky to know some of the most amazing individuals. They are constantly driving me to create and follow my dreams. I value and appreciate each and every one of you!

As much as I love a day of adventure, I can honestly say a day spent doing nothing with my boy and my bunny are the best days I could ever ask for! I always feel so unproductive, but it's so rewarding at the same time!

My biggest piece of advice is to slow down and enjoy the moment. I'm naturally a very restless person. I always feel an itch to be moving or doing something, but I've recently noticed when I'm able to take the time to mellow out, be an observer and get comfortable in the space I'm in, I'm much happier!

The two most important things in life are love and freedom. Once you know what love is, you can truly understand why love conquers all. Freedom is the ability to be yourself, unrestricted and without any stress or worry. It is the ability to wake up in the morning and go somewhere you've never been before because you feel like it. Freedom to me is floating in the ocean and feeling comfortable enough in your own skin to do so. One of the greatest things about living in America is having the ability to control your own freedom. As soon as you realize this, nobody can take that away from you!
