Water. Yoga. Ballet.

The last time I visited Malibu Creek State Park I had this vision where I would take photos across this very pond. I came back and made that vision come to life. 

I went out and took a day trip with one of my good friends this past weekend. In the process we learned so much about each other and were able to have fun, get injured, and laugh together. To get to this spot, I wrapped my camera in two plastic bags (both of which had holes in them) and swam across the pond with my arm in the air. That was probably a very dumb idea, but I really wanted to get these photos. Put together friends, a camera, water, some yoga and ballet moves and you get... SUCCESS! <3 If you are looking for cliff jumping or a water-with-rocks location in Southern California for a photoshoot, I would definitely recommend this place!

I know many people who have recently been entering the hospital and getting injured (also getting married, but that's another story). It just reminds me how precious every moment in life is. I try to live every moment like it was one of my last. Whether this means taking advantage of God's beautiful creation, working my hardest at a task, or sharing my heart and talents to others to help them feel joy, I aim to have this mentality as a part of my daily living. I don't always succeed at being my best or treating others in the most loving way, but I try.  Every time I mess up I remember that although I may be a sinner, I need to love myself where I am at and continuously strive for the greatness God has in store for me. :)


Feeling More Fulfilled & Trying My Best,

Craving More

Necklace | Steaming Madd

Cuff | Hovey Lee

Tops | Borrowed
Pants | Hanger 221
Shoes | Clarks


"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything, by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God and the peace of God, which surpasses all comparison shall guard your hearts and minds in Jesus Christ."

Phillippians 4:6-7

When you crave more, look internally and ask yourself if what you crave is to further His kingdom or to celebrate His creation. What do you crave more of? Does it root back to love?


Feeling Like I Need More Lectio Divina,
