The Road Trip // it's coming


Hello dears. With everything happening in Japan, I have found little motivation to write about my life lately. But I am back on track, ready to share the life that I am so lucky to be so easily living right now. And I am happy to announce that tomorrow night marks the beginning of my next adventure! A road trip with my bestest friend! We are beyond thrilled to be doing a road trip that has been one of our goals since our friendships conception almost 14 years ago. Two weekends ago rachelle came up tp Portland to stay with me and plan our epic adventure. We had a radtastic plan that seemed just perfect. We wanted to hit up the bay area and camp at Big Sur. We had every day down, buuuuut, as luck would have it, the weather had a different idea. Each day since our planning sesh we would look at the weather reports and see one more day of our trip filled with rain. See, we live in rain. Both in Portland and Eugene, it rains 9 months out of the year. I don't want to spend my precious time and money to just dogde drops in a different city. So, last night, we decided! We are going to LA! Yes gas is 87 dollars a gallon! Yes, it's further than we wanted to drive. But, we don't care. We will be out of the rain, and even better than that, we will be in the sun and by the beach! My main goal of the trip...ROLLERCOASTERS! And so far that is all we have planed. The first whole day there will be spent at Magic Mountain, happy place. After that who knows? We had wanted a somewhat open trip, just to see where the wind blows us (we have a tendency toward adventure the two of us, your typical grocery trip usually turns into something spectacular together, really) and with our first trip we planned we had to be very specific if we didn't want to waste full days driving. But now, we are driving down, with no rush, and then doing as we please. I am so excited to see where we end up, what we do and who we meet. (any of you in LA? Hehe) We still hope to camp, we still hope to do awesome things, but we also hope to float a little, not know what we will be doing the next day, a concept that is both foreign and craved by the both of us. I probably won't be blogging from the road much, but will be checking in and keeping up with all of your sponsorship/donation emails! I will be taking about a million photos to share with you all when I get back, but until then I have a few scheduled inspiration posts ready and waiting for you.

“But it’s hard to stay mad when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once and it’s too much. My heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst. And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life.” — American Beauty
