Hello, friend! I’m Kristen!
Since 2015, I’ve chased my dreams and heart as I’ve moved around the United States – from New York to South Florida to Washington State to Boston (my current home!). My experiences in moving and exploring different people and places have led to deep spiritual and personal growth. I work best outside my comfort zone and embrace all new experiences, places, and people with a full heart.
I launched my blog in 2015 when I first moved out of New York to share my adventures with family and friends. In Florida, dove (literally) into the South Florida salt life. Since then, I have explored my affinity for both ocean and mountain adventures. When my heart guided me to the Pacific Northwest in 2016, I uncovered a deeper appreciation for the mountains and nature. Though I grew up traveling, I had only barely scratched the surface of mountain adventures. My family went on annual ski trips (on skis since age three, woo!) and always had an outdoor adventure on our vacations (white water rafting, ATVing, hiking, etc.), but my first camping trip wasn’t until 2014. Once in the Pacific Northwest, I discovered a deeper passion for camping, hiking, backpacking, rock climbing, backcountry/inbounds skiing, and mountaineering.
After living in Washington State for four years, I was ready to move to the East Coast to be closer to family again. While I loved the mountain adventures, I knew there was more in store on my home coast! I moved to Boston in 2020 and continue to build community via living an active, creative, and intentional life.
My spirit is fulfilled by exploring mountains and oceans near and far. Through these experiences, I create a deep connection with myself and the world around me. The people I meet and places I go inspire my creativity, which comes in the form of photos, stories, poems, paintings, mandalas, and more.
This site is a canvas for my heart as I share the things I’ve learned on my life journey and I’m so grateful you’re here.
I hope you find connection and inspiration by being here with me.
With love and gratitude always,
