As the “most visited lake in the Alpine Wilderness,” Snow Lake in Snoqualmie Pass is certainly beautiful, but perhaps gets a little too much attention from the public. As my first official hike after moving to the Evergreen State, I didn’t entirely know what to expect from this adventure. When my hiking crew and I pulled into the parking lot near the trailhead, my friends’ jaws dropped to the floor. They were disgusted by the amount of cars in the parking lot (certainly 100 or more), and we knew we were in for a journey with the masses. It was too late to turn back, and I was secretly intrigued by why this hike was so darn popular. So, onward we marched.

After moving out of Florida, and before transporting to Washington State, I took a quick trip to Houston, Texas! Why? It’s not JUST because of the amazing Tex Mex food (which I admit I underestimated the power of), nor was it due to the honkey tonk atmosphere I figured existed (my line dancing obsession must be explored every so often). I actually was drawn to Texas because of the people residing in the Lone Star State.

One chapter closed, and another opened. Florida changed me. I realized I can achieve all I desire, and life is incredibly colorful – filled with love, passion, enthusiasm, and beautiful people/places.
This is the most unbelievable video – capturing the spirit of South Florida, and the colorful lives we choose to create. We are products of our thoughts, beliefs, and desires – here, my collaborator/best friend and I @tallymarkprod created a magical representation of the NEED to fight for our dreams and fearlessly pursue what we deeply desire. There’s NOTHING to wait for. Let go of fear and regret; instead choose love, compassion, gratitude, and PASSION. Do or die, let’s give it a try – it’s all or nothing. When our hearts and souls are part of our mission, we can be HOTTER THAN THE SUN – we are burning with PASSION and DESIRE; we are ENTHUSIASTIC and COLORFUL in our pursuit of the life we’ve always imagined.

Howdy Fellow Dreamers – I’ve got some news for y’all!
It’s been hard to keep this secret from this blog, but due to my recent travels and transitions, I’ve been a little too busy to give into temptation to share earlier.
We’ve talked about my feeling of being “stuck” in Florida after 13 months living the salt life, followed by an inspirational trip in Tanzania where I reached a catharsis – my “aha” moment. Once I saw I no longer belonged in Florida and it was time to rejuvenate in New York, I thought, What’s next? I opened my heart to a new path to fulfill my deepest desire to live outside my comfort zone and explore the world so I could learn and grow exponentially. I started exploring my options and realized that opportunity is everywhere!
Which brings me to today…
