It’s crazy that this was six years ago- an all night frantic energy filled evening of updating the oscars site with the short list. I’d been here in Los Angeles less than six months, bright eyed and excited about what the future held. perhaps what’s crazier is how quickly time passes and how much things have changed- where I live, my close friends in this city, what I do for a living, what my life looks like. For what it’s worth, I wouldn’t have done it any other way! #melancholy #memories #oscars2013

I had a really good conversation about the things we do bc we want to (hang with friends, play with babies, etc) vs the things we do bc we have to (sometimes, the 9-6; eat salads, etc). Sometimes one feeds the other, work to fund travels and rent, workout to counter love for gelato etc. it’s really about finding the balance. #selfexplanatory #sundaymood #2019 #yourvibeattractsyourtribe

Excellent wisdom from @elizabeth_gilbert_writer #repost ・・・
"You guys, I can’t do it anymore. I can’t attack myself. I can’t insult myself. I can’t respond to a compliment by offering up a list of my flaws. I just...can’t. It feels like such a violation of the sacred. I don’t have the heart for self-deprecation anymore. Somewhere along the way, over the past few years, I’ve lost the dark (and particularly female) talent for self-criticism, and for tearing myself down. It feels like sacrilege. My mouth can’t form the hateful words. And I can’t bear it anymore, to hear another woman demean, degrade, or diminish herself. It shocks my senses and hurts my heart. To witness a woman denying that she is beautiful is like watching someone set fire to an art museum. It’s like watching an angel drink gasoline. It’s like watching a Phoenix rip off its wings. I just can’t be around it anymore. It hurts too much. This is my official plea: I beg you to stop doing that. You are a magnificent creature. Start knowing it. Stop lying about yourself. I love you. Onward. ❤️ LG"
2018 definitely didn’t turn out the way I thought it would, but then again, when does life ever follow the intended plan. Here’s what I do know-*in adversity, friendships get stronger. *Breaks are good - maybe not so much from the gym, but from people. *Travel is amazing, and like the sea, is so good for the soul (everyone should book tickets for Portugal/Greece/Sydney ASAP!) *Trust in the universe - for those things that at the moment seem so overwhelming or even devastating ultimately might be a catalyst for good things, maybe even changing your direction. *it needs to be mentioned parties on boats are better than parties anywhere else!
And sometimes a glass of wine, a good book, and the Montana air can be the therapy you didn’t know you needed!
San Luis Obispo, Denver, Montana, New York, Portugal - last year reminded me I missed traveling. This year- definitely to not wait for the perfect time for a trip, more savings whatever. Living with intention changes the game!
I’m excited to see where next year takes me! Cheers to 2019! 🎉✈️☮️🥂, #2019 #memories💕 #friends #gratitude #happynewyear
