While looking for inspiration I read a quote that said “Beautiful things don’t ask for attention” and started thinking... why do we tear down nature to build the tallest buildings or the biggest cities when we could build WITH nature to enhance the beauty of it? . . That’s why I love places like the Red Rock Amphitheatre, sitting over looking the city in between all the gorgeous red rocks and rolling hills 🏜
There’s no turning back now. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’ve put it out into the universe, that’s enough motivation for me to make sure I meet my goals. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In a years time, I see @andrew_heuser and I crossing off each state on our 50 state adventure, #vandwelling with the pups & (kit)kat. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m ready to start my passion journey and see where it takes me. 🥰
Another wintry day in NYC has me thinking of Hawaii again. After I took a tour of Molokai's Kalaupapa peninsula (the place to which, in olden times, Hawaii sent leprosy patients), this was my view from my flight from Kalaupapa to the airport on the "topside" of Molokai. I was aboard a tiny 9-seat Cessna, but you can't beat the view from one of those small planes! Have you ever flown on such a small aircraft?
I’ve been getting a lot of DMs asking how I am able to move so much & work while I’m traveling - and my response is that it’s simply because I have chosen to. I’ve had this goal for at least 8 years of my life, since early high school I dreamed of being able to have this kind of lifestyle. Growing up, my dad worked remote in medical sales and showed me that you can be successful and not need to commute to an office, he was able to spend more time with me than most of my friend’s parents did and it really inspired me. As for me, I work as a freelance photographer, freelance model, & social media manager for @brandaccelerators. At the same time, am a part time student at San Diego State University where I am majoring in Recreation & Tourism Management + minoring in spanish, in which I am learning even more about the travel industry, national park management, and management of sporting/concert facilities, all things I am extremely passionate about. But being completely honest - while I am able to make a living from my phone and computer, this does not come without an investment, and a lot of hard work and sacrifice. Between the cost of my phone, my camera, and my computer, that’s well over $6,000 in equipment. My college degree is going to put me in quite a bit of debt. Staying organized is near to impossible and I spend A LOT of time on my phone and computer in order to work from anywhere. It’s hard to find a modeling agency that gets it. Last spring I worked literally 5 jobs including babysitting in order to kickstart this lifestyle. I have NO idea what state I’ll be living in this summer. I am CONSTANTLY missing friends all over the place. Keeping my grades above Cs is near to impossible. But that’s the reality, & so my advice to you, is if you want a lifestyle where you can work from anywhere, choose it. Do it. Find your niche and whether that’s finding a more professional career like medical sales like my dad or a more alternative career like

Do you know your spiritual gifts? Do you have dreams? On today’s podcast we talk about how crucial it is to nourish the gifts and dreams in your spouse to have a thriving marriage! “Biblical marriages will call out the spiritual gifts in each other. Who knows you better than your spouse, after all? Be the team God wants you to be in marriage and your family with thrive. Your kids need to see you spur each other on.” • 📸@resolute.man & I visiting #theangeloaktree in #charleston SC this summer while we were FULFILLING a #familydream of seeing the 🇺🇸 from our RV! • This was a dream we had for over a decade and you know something, there was always a good reason not to go. Take this past summer for example, I was in my third trimester of our 9th pregnancy and Isaac still had to work full time! But our oldest was going to go to college so we knew it was NOW air possibly NEVER. Our family needed it. After a business failure, losing almost everything, including losing a baby in our 2nd trimester, we were in need of a break from normal. We needed to fulfill a dream! • There is something about working hard & stepping out in faith that makes it easier to see more clearly what God is calling you to do for HIS KINGDOM. It was on this trip Isaac began posting online more intentionally about biblical manhood. He came ALIVE again after such a low valley and weight of company debt. So, we literally just lived life in 34 states over the course of 3 months. It was so healing, energizing, and motivating to keep doing what we had been doing which is believing in each other, trying new things, nourishing one another’s gifts and pushing each other to grow outside our comfort zones. • We talk about some really crucial aspects that people often overlook in marriage and hope you are encouraged and challenged to choose growth and dream in your marriage too! • In every episode we like to give a shout-out to another ministry or friends! This week we want to
"I'm happier with my Cowgirl Boots on" . Last weekend one of my biggest dreams came true. Real #linedancing in #texas in my #cowgirlboots and a ton of fun. Y'all should check Austin out at some point of your Au Pair Adventure. It's so different than the other cities. It's like they say. Texas is a different world. But it's an amazing world full of live country music (hot singers btw), friendly people, Boots, Guitars, Dancing, Sunshine and FUN 🤠🥰👌 #lostmyheartintexas
Fun fact: Two if my favorite things are plants and traveling! I have over 20 houseplants 😍🌱. African violet, ficus bonsai, cacti, succulents, pepperomia, spider plants etc... all my plant babies make me smile. I’ve been to 11/50 US states and I plan to hit up another two this year hopefully 🤞🏻Nevada and Montana! I love how I can track the states I’ve traveled to with these shoes from @bangsshoes. When I saw them I knew I needed them 😂❤️. What are some things that make your heart happy?
Our company is based out of Georgia. So here are our 3 favorite campgrounds in Georgia! ⛺️🌲 • ✅ Vogel State Park - Vogel is located in the north Georgia mountains in Blairsville, Georgia. It was one of the first state parks in Georgia in 1931. It’s natural beauty ranks it first on my list but there is also plenty to do near by. If you ever have the chance check it out! • ✅ Skidaway Island - Skidaway is the exact opposite of the mountains of Georgia. If you journey down the coast near Savannah, Georgia you’ll find this gem of a state park. It has beautiful moss trees, an inlet for some amazing fishing and it’s close to Savannah (17th oldest city in America) so if you love the beach and history. I highly recommend you stop by! • ✅ Indian Springs - If you don’t like the beach or the mountains. How about a trip to Georgia’s old state capital? Indian Springs is about 40 miles north of Macon Georgia. Indian Springs gets its name because the Creek Indians used its spring to heal the sick. The spring is still there to this day. Also, Indian Springs has been operated by the state since 1825 but didn’t become a state park until Georgia joined the U.S. park system in 1931. Either way, Indian Springs is the oldest state park in the United States 😎 I have personally been to all 3 and loved every second of it! I hope this will motivate you to get out and travel and do some camping this year!!! Here’s to a great 2019 👍🏻 ———————————————— #historyfacts#historyiscool#georgiacamping#georgiahistory#camping⛺ #campingcamping2019#picklecreekoutdoors#pco#campingworld#georgiacampgrounds#georgiacoast#georgiamountains#camping⛺️ #camping#campingseason#campingfamily#campingtrip#campingtrips#gocamping#campingculture#campingwithdogs#traveltheusa
▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ Hamilton Pool Preserve, outside of Austin, was amazing! One of the neatest places either of us have ever seen. The limestone canyon with a waterfall has stunning, clear-blue water. In the winter it cost $15/car. The water was too cold to swim (even though a few people did), but it is less crowded. We enjoyed the sound of the waterfall with just a few others. I’ve read that summertime is much different and reservations are required. Still, we’d love to go back when the water is warmer and we can swim out to the waterfall.
