"And still, after all this time, the Sun has never said to the Earth, You owe me. Look what happens with a love like that. It lights the whole sky." –Hafiz #captionsbywriters #purenmBuy land, build a house in Abiquiu. Thats the plan. ✨Six months ago I traveled to Oahu, Hawaii to spend Thanksgiving with my family. At the time I was going through a breakup of a long term, serious relationship and not feeling like myself at all. After seeing photos of the Stairway to Heaven, a 4,000 stair hike (each way!) up to the top of Oahu, I knew I had to attempt it. After all, I was reinventing myself, conquering my fears, and about to step out into the world a different person. This hike took everything in me to complete but after 4 hours, I did it. It remains the most intense hike Ive ever experienced, and hands down one of the most incredible experiences of my life so far. It taught me that true happiness and determination come from within. Today Im looking back at this photo remembering how important it is to surprise yourself once in awhile. #honestcaptionsSanta Fe was such a babe tonight. ✨ #howtosantafeHey San Francisco. ✨Chaco Canyon 🌞 #purenmTaking another wood carving workshop with @andaluzwoodwork today but had to put my tools down when this sunset peeked over the mountain. #purenm #alwaysgo #globalyodel#TBT to last months adventures at Bonanza Creek Ranch with @jontaylorsweet, @technopaul and @redcircle12. It was a pretty good day. 🌾 #12fpsadventures #howtosantafe #simplysantafe #purenm9 hour trip to LA... just long enough to give a presentation for work and to swoop by the house I grew up to kiss my familia. Not a bad day. Now, back to New Mexico! 🌴➡️🌵✨🌵✨
Hey girl, hayyyy. 🐴Red rocks & golden hour along the acequia with @andaluzwoodwork. 🌋✨Casey in the giant prism room. 🙇 #purenm #globalyodel #alwaysgoNew Mexico, I dont think Ill ever tire of you.Yurt life. 💓These high desert allergies are making me homesick for the beaches of Southern California something fierce these days. Achoo! #whpfromthewater🌾 + @sacred_geometry🐦💨 | Bosque del Apache, NMOasis in the desert | Abiquiu, NMThis weekend I had the pleasure of working with my hands in a completely new way – carving wood! I had no idea how satisfying and meditative it would be, but Im hooked. Its easy for me to get caught behind a computer editing photos, doing graphic design and dealing with emails in my creative workflow. But it was so nice to get away from technology and still be creative over the last couple days. Big thanks to @abiboy505 for the carving lesson! 😊
Bidding farewell to @andaluzwoodwork tomorrow as he rides his bike from Portland to San Francisco over the next month. Im so inspired by his adventurous spirit and zest for life. Perhaps a long distance ride isnt too far in my future, either.Abiquiu, you are pure magic. ✨I dont know if Ive mentioned this but Northern New Mexico is totally where its at, yall. 💁 #purenmChased that good California light this weekend. ✨Its Friday and Ive got a serious case of wanderlust. Where to next? #purenmHome on the range. 🐴 #purenm #alwaysgo #globalyodelFinally some good snow! ❄️De-Na-Zin Wilderness, NMExplored Plaza Blanca with new friends over the weekend.
