Random Bits:

The open road is my happy place. I love “getting lost” and exploring new places.  Driving out to the country, the mountains, and the desert is nourishment for my soul.

Cozy is one of my favorite feelings. I have a fondness for books, fuzzy socks, fireplaces, hot tea, & the moon. I am a total bath person.

I prefer clothing that is soft, flowy, and feels like an extension of my own skin. When I am comfortable, I feel beautiful and free.

I long for a simpler, more rustic life in the woods. My dream is to live in a log cabin, with seasons.

And freedom, always freedom…
