November. A new month has arrived, however, I feel as though it’s a new year.
I feel I have grown the most in 2014. My goals, my inner happiness, my relationships, my love for the world and others, has grown exponentially. Usually on Sunday nights I would lay in bed stressed about Monday morning, but as I sit here calmly, completely in the moment, I know I am no longer the person I used to be. I look forward to what is ahead of me, and I no longer look at my past with regret; only for guidance.
Is this what it means to grow older? If so, I am looking forward to all of my upcoming years. xx
Today I traveled to Concan, TX to camp with my dearest friend. We spent our evening by the Frio River, listening to our favorite songs and then walking around campsites as the sun set over the hills. It was gorgeous, and once again I am learning that my days spent out doors bring me so much happiness.
Once we were inside Big Bend National Park, James and I went to the Chisos Basin to climb Emory Peak. The next day we ventured down the path that led us to Santa Elena Canyon, a view my dad said I had to witness. The canyon towered 1,500 feet above you and all you could do was stare in silence.
These photos don’t do Big Bend any justice. Without the emotions behind it, these are merely gorgeous photos and you can only just begin to enjoy the beauty. Nature, especially at this scale, must be experienced firsthand. xx
A delicious hibiscus sorbet from an authentic Japanese restaurant. I can’t get over how gorgeous the color is.
Around 7 p.m. my friend and I enjoyed the sunset at my favorite park. I walked far into the grass to get away from the geese who had claimed territory on the path and came across a beautiful flower it all of it’s loneliness.
Yet another flashtat weekend. This design is one of my favorites from the pack. I have found that flash tattoos and summer are my favorite combination.
