things that make me happy

Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about what makes me happy and actively adding more of those things into my life. I’m a serial list maker, so you bet I even made a list. Here are some things that never fail to add a little light into my day (sometimes literally), which is why I’m […]

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 […]

I’m also still obsessed with our little succulent “garden” we have growing outside our front door. It makes me so happy as I leave or come home to our […]

sunny california

It’s about time I get back to catching up with my 365 project posts. It was cold when we first came to town, but thankfully it got warmer after a couple of weeks and has pretty much stayed that way. People ain’t lyin’ when they say Southern California has perfect weather. 18/365. We have biked […]

runyon canyon

17/365. The next day we decided to do actual physical activity and headed to Runyon Canyon, where we spent an afternoon hiking with Kipling. You would think there would be more direction once you get up the canyon, but you are completely left to your own devices as far as navigating the trails goes. We […]
