What Lies Within...

Happy Campers

Until we find the perfect vintage camper, maybe a tent will have to do...














Since it's about 100 degrees in Houston everyday, I guess we'll have to start small (and stay in the air conditioning).

Hit The Road

I think my next project will be re-doing a vintage camper of some type.  Here's my inspiration - all from LaGypsyYaya's "Gypsy Wanderlust" Pinterest board...








happy wandering!

Touching Strangers

"Touching Strangers" is a series of photographs by New York City photographer Richard Renaldi.  The photos are intimate portraits of people touching who have never actually met.  I ADORE the photos - you can't help but imagine what their connection might be - what's their story?  Even though I know they're strangers, I guess I WANT them to be the way they are in the photos.  It's all about human connection...

Go Outside











“Go outside. Don’t tell anyone and don’t bring your phone. Start walking and keep walking until you no longer know the road like the palm of your hand, because we walk the same roads day in and day out, to the bus and back home and we cease to see. We walk in our sleep and teach our muscles to work without thinking and I dare you to walk where you have not yet walked and I dare you to notice. Don’t try to get anything out of it, because you won’t. Don’t try to make use of it, because you can’t. And that’s the point. Just walk, see, sit down if you like. And be. Just be, whatever you are with whatever you have, and realize that that is enough to be happy. 
There’s a whole world out there, right outside your window. You’d be a fool to miss it.”
