hollywood sign : a video

Sometimes you can live in a city for four years and still not see some of its most famous landmarks. I don’t think there’s anyone on this planet who isn’t familiar with the Hollywood sign, and whenever I see it in the distance (on the off chance the smog has cleared), it’s always a bit surreal. […]

explore la : westridge-canyonback wilderness

The past month all I have quite literally wanted to do is go on a hike. But with the onslaught of rain we got in the first few weeks of the year, it just wasn’t happening. So last weekend I told myself we were going on a hike if it was the last thing we did, […]

ladies adventure club

The Sunday before last I attended a Super Moon gathering in Griffith Park with the Ladies Adventure Club, a gathering of women, curated by women, for the purpose of education, creativity, and exploration. This group of women came together to listen and connect and support one another, and it was the absolute loveliest thing. How often […]

norway : a video

While I stayed behind and explored Copenhagen solo and galavanted off to Paris, my husband and our friends, Justin and Kameron, set off on an outdoor adventure to Norway. They kayaked the beautiful Fjords and hiked the strenuous Trolltunga Trail through snow. I’m not going to lie and say I’m not a little super jealous of the […]

portland, oregon : part two

I’m back with part two of our anniversary trip to Portland. In case you missed it, I shared about our first day here. Like our last visit, we spent one day in the city and one day in nature – because even though Portland is full of so many fun stops and great food, you just […]

I think that discouragement has made me seriously slack on the food side of things as well. So this next month I’m participating as best as I can in the #TIU31 fitness and nutrition challenge to kick my butt back into […]

joshua tree

As things go…two months later I’ve finished my last roll of film. The majority of the photos are from our Easter camping trip to Joshua Tree (I shared a few here). Though I still prefer the forests, the wide open desert spaces, the jumbo rocks, and the quirky trees were a fun change from our […]

portland part two

Sunday was our “nature” day, and our first stop was Multnomah Falls. It is the second largest year round waterfall in the U.S. and the biggest Oregon attraction. We started the hike to the top, but as we didn’t have all day, and my knee started bothering me (ugh), we turned around. But the area […]

a hike and a dog

Yesterday I attempted my first ever solo hike with Kipling at Kenneth Hahn and learned two things. 1. Kipling is both the best and worst workout partner – she never stops. She is still a tugger, and she was going absolutely nuts over all of the gopher holes. She dragged me up the hill and […]

life lately : from my phone

I usually only use my phone to take photos if I want to upload them to Instagram; however, sometimes I want to capture something and none of my 5 million cameras are around. So here are some snaps from my life lately. If I’m not running to auditions or on set (I shot two commercials […]
