I have spent the past few months taking photos every spare minute of free time during the day I have, and have shared like none of them. Today, I finally got around to looking at them and narrowed it down to 400 unique photos that I think are worth sharing 😳😳. Glacier is just so photogenic. Probably won’t post even close to that number, but I think should start sharing photos more than twice a week. Hope you guys are ready. 😀

216/365: Shinkansen train ride with Danbo to Kyoto and eating from Bento box ✅
First time I ever became aware that this place existed, was in one of my most favorite movies from the 90s. Being able to see it in real life brought me all the way back to my childhood, and made the experience even that much more special.
The only castle in North America was once the residence of Sir Henry Pellatt, and took $3.5 million, 299 workers, and 3 yrs to build
98 rooms over 64,700 square feet included an elevator, a central vacuum cleaner, a green-house for exotic plants, an oven large enough to cook an ox(!), a stable, three bowling alleys, and a marble-floor bath with a jacuzzi - all back in 1914
You can insert the WTF emoji now!
This was actually one of my favorite parts of the trip to Iceland. The hike to the secret canyon. I love hiking. Heart beating, blood flowing, lungs breathing. Mind, soul, and body refreshed by exercise and nature. What a good feeling. And what a view. 💚
I remember this specific morning quite well. Mostly because some things didn’t go as planned. I forgot my sleeping bag so I was forced to wrap myself around my friends jackets to stay warm for the night. Yes, it was a very cold night. On top of that, I ripped a hole on my sock which made it very uncomfortable to hike back. Although things weren’t “perfect”, I laughed and I told myself that it could always be worse.

Simplicity // The simple beauty of nature is powerful. As longs as this exist, and it certainly always will, I know that there will always be a comfort. I absolutely believe that nature brings solace in all troubles. No matter how lonely, the world offers itself to our imagination, the best remedy is to go outside and embrace the whole of nature in its beauty. May we all have a simple and blessed evening!!
Walking across the Brooklyn Bridge is a great way to see the city. Also a great way to get yelled at by people on bikes who are bitter that they have to commute through one of the busiest tourist spots in New York.
Since it’s almost Halloween I thought I’d share the best Halloween story I have:
So when I was a kid I thought trying to slide across the carpet on a defrosted gel ice pack while sucking on a hard piece of Halloween candy was a good idea. Well of course that didn’t work out too well for me because I ended up slipping on the ice pack which made the candy get lodged in the back of my throat. My mom recently got out of the shower and saw that I was choking so she picked me up, ran me down the stairs, swung the front door open and repeatedly yelled “SOMEONE PLEASE CALL 911!” all while she was still half naked from her shower. And of course some of our neighbors were actually outside during the time and just stood there staring at us while I was flailing in my moms arms as she was trying to perform the Heimlich maneuver on me. Eventually the candy dislodged from my throat and we went back inside like nothing happened. And no, that wasn’t the year I dressed up as a clown. 🤡
I struggle with my mental illness almost everyday. When I was diagnosed in 2015, after years of immense struggles I had no idea what was ahead of me. I was referred to a treatment program that I was told had a two year waiting list. I sat on the waiting list for 4 years... by the time my name came up I had done enough alternative treatment that I no longer needed the scope of treatment they offered. There were no faster alternatives - no paid methods that would allow me to do a similar program faster. I had one option... to wait, and wait, and wait ✨✨.
Living with a mental illness is still a struggle but it has pushed me to create a life that I love. I know I’ll never be happy in a 9-5 job or working for someone else at all. It has pushed me to get a masters free and create my own business which I can do from my bed. So I can be productive and profitable even when I’m having a day where I feel unable to move. I have built a life that revolves around my family - never missing a Christmas recital or Kylie’s school functions. While it’s a struggle, s one that I’ve learned to live with ✨. Not everyday is easy, in fact, some are horrible, but you learn to live with the bad while working toward the good 💕.
