A sunny gal from Cali living in the south of France. I adore slow living, magic, and celebrating the simple joys of daily life. I’m a self-proclaimed Disney nerd (as is my husband!), obsessed with cats and cocoa, and you can often find me swimming with the fishies in the salty sea. Come along and enjoy the magic, the simple joys of life with me...

2017 was a year for the books. It was a quiet and peaceful year for me personally and spiritually, and I discovered new passions, traveled to bucket-list destinations and connected with my spiritual side on a massive level. It was a year of deep reflection, contemplation, and spiritual growth, and although I am sad to see 2017 go, 2018 will be a big year of change and new possibilities. Here’s a brief photo recap of what went on for me in 2017!

From meeting new friends around the world…

to getting in touch with my intuition…

from living in Bali by myself for a month

and discovering a new passion for scuba diving

I got “serious” about my love for blogging and launched this here blog!

My boyfriend and I moved in together and we moved to Old Town Alexandria…

I volunteered with a non-profit that I care deeply about

Alex and I went on a camping road trip through Iceland!

My boyfriend finally met my mom in San Diego

and I traveled to China

and New Orleans!

And climbed a volcano at sunrise (bucket list item!)

Meditation finally became a daily ritual…

we visited Walt Disney World…

I fell even more in love with photography…

and we fell more in love than ever before.

I improved my photo editing skills!

And Alex and I began fostering animals!

 

It was a year of peace, learning, and introspection with a sprinkle of big news! With only a few hours left until 2018, this is my final blog post of the year. It’s crazy to think that I started this WordPress blog in a little cafe on the busy streets of Ubud Bali…and how much I’ve grown and discovered my interests, passions and newfound values along the way. Here’s to a new year filled with wonder, joy and new beginnings for us all. I’ll see you in 2018, friend! 🙂
