and miles to go before I sleep

Hello beautiful wonderful readers!

So an odd fact about me is that my social media feeds tend to be completely different depending on the platform… my Facebook page is full of actual friends, people I know, etc, etc. My Instagram page is specially curated to only show me beautiful horses, lovely spiritual routines, inspiring birth stories, and a few other topics or celebrities that I enjoy seeing. No surprise, I scroll through Facebook periodically to see what’s going on with people I know, but I spend 98% of my time on Instagram because I can come away feeling inspired, empowered, and happy. Nobody is fighting about wearing masks or their politics on my Instagram feed and I LOVE it.

But the reason I mention my social media feeds is that I follow quite a few travel bloggers. I adore traveling and don’t get to do it as often as I would like, so I tend to live vicariously through others (particularly right now with a small child). And at the moment, with all the restrictions and shelter-in-place stuff, basically nobody else is traveling either. This means that my lovely Instagram feed is lacking in the department of beautiful travel photos. It’s a tragedy.


Exploring a castle in the middle of Germany, back in 2015.

So to satisfy my wanderlust, I’ve been daydreaming about vacations and getaways and traveling. Originally I had planned to take a nice vacation sometime this year, and then COVID happened, so I thought, maybe we just have a weekend getaway later in the fall. But Texas is still being stupid and we’re still avoiding people as much as possible, so it has been agreed that all traveling is off the table until next year.

I would love to spend a week relaxing in the Flam Valley in Norway, admiring the mountains and walking along the river. Just enjoying the peaceful nature of a small village and the beautiful views of the country. Norway is definitely pretty high on our list of countries to visit in the future.

Okay, I just love waterfalls. And I’ve never been lucky enough to see any big ones in real life. I keep looking at photos of the ones in Croatia and I’m a little obsessed. Seriously, how gorgeous are these things? And they just happen naturally?! Swoon.


We were originally supposed to go visit the Prince Edward Island/Nova Scotia last year, but I ended up having some issues with my citizenship and had to cancel the trip (booo) but I’m still holding out for that trip to happen soon. The red dirt cliffs, the lighthouses, etc. I want to bike around the island and just enjoy the scenery.

This photo is of Iceland, but honestly, I think anywhere I could see the Northern Lights would be awesome. I don’t necessarily like the cold all that much, but I’ll buy a parka or something and be okay, right? Alaska, Iceland, whatever. Just somewhere I can see the beautiful sights of the northern part of the globe and experience those beautiful fantastical lights!

Where do you want to travel to as soon as travel restrictions are lifted?!

Love, light, and kindness,
