2018 feels good already 😊

Neat how we always seem to end the year real different from the place we started ✨ Happy New Years y’all!

Big Sur

Trying to make it to Big Sur before sunset ✨

My heart this mornin’ is thinking about my moms southern cooking and waking up way too early with my sister to run downstairs towards the tree. We’d always have biscuits and gravy, salty ham, and watch a Christmas Story 😊🎄it’s those little memories, right? That’s gotta be one of the best parts about starting a family is making your own traditions.

My Christmas this year is a bit different than most years but it feels right. I’m out in the wilderness exploring some country I love deeply. So here’s to another year of counting stars ✨ 2017 wasn’t always easy but I wouldn’t change a thing

Eastern Sierras

Neat how a crochet blanket can take ya right back to your childhood

Being from a small Southern town I didn’t think you’d ever catch me saying this but I really love it here. It’s truly a lovely place in the world y’all. And if I had more than two nickels to rub together I’d own home right near this sand.

There’s a whole bunch of good folks out here, a lot of them I love personally. The weather is amazing. The quality of light is like no other place. Being a photographer this land makes my heart sing every sunset.

But dang it doesn’t come cheap y’all! Forever out of my budget and honestly I’m alright with that. I don’t believe a man like me is cut out for LA for too long. So I’m back to dreaming about little mountain towns, cheaper land, and open space 😊

Editing day 🙃

Raise a little cain, fall in love whenever you can, let your ears blow in the wind, drive real slow

Don’t run from a good story ✨

The desert is full of magic and I really love it 🌵✨ good day to be alive

Morning rituals I love…watching the sunrise out the back of the truck, cold brew coffee, and being still enough for 10 minutes for meditate. (I love the Headspace app if you don’t have one already)

I’m feeling really good about today, hope y’all are too ✨

She likes my beat up truck and windows down

What a lovely place

We pulled over here to stretch our legs on the drive towards SF last night. At first it was just another quiet road with some mountains in the background. Not the most epic spot, and certainly no where famous or even known. But then the sun light started to fade, and the fog rolled in, and suddenly it was the most magical place I’ve ever stood.

I like to think about life like that now too. Sometimes it seems like you’re standing in a basic place, or painful place, but if you can reframe it and wait you’ll find out it’s exactly where you need to be. ✨
