let’s go to the beach…
When Dorothy repeatedly said “there is no place like home” in the Wizard of Oz, she was right. I can’t help but to always think of that phrase now that I am back in Miami. Don’t get me wrong, I loved my time in Spain. The beauty of the country was spectacular and always a surprise to me every day. Plus, the food is awesome! We spent our time and made great memories, but it was time for Adrian and I to head back to our home roots.
Since I’ve been back I have been focusing on the things that make me extremely happy. My calligraphy and Spin Gallery. I have been working early morning and long nights with goggles, paint all over my hands and arms, power tools and my nail lady so confused why I am coming in for only pedicures. As well as coding websites, photoshoots in this Miami heat and editing photos until 3AM. But hey, in life…when you’re doing something that makes you happy and fulfils you…nothing else matters.
I’ve gotten such great feedback with my work & I have had the opportunity to meet so many new people. I get so excited to see my customers excitement on social media once they’ve got their hands on their new piece. Whether its a bright printed dress or huge reclaimed pallet wood art, my heart is happy.
Have you checked out my new ventures?
Have you ever made a healthy breakfast from scratch?
I’d love to see if you guys try out this recipe – send me your feedback!
update: I finally got to experience my first “snow day”
headed up to sierra nevada for a weekend in the mountains. this “staycation” was a very spontaneous decision to celebrate our one year wedding anniversary a weekend early (I still can’t believe it’s been a year already, where has the time gone?) we’ve been working really hard this year and deserved some R&R in a new place and setting…..and weather.
I had never seen (real) snow before so when I saw on our weather forecast for the weekend I was literally jumping for joy. I stayed up to watch the small little snow flurries fall from the sky and melt quicker than I could scream “It’s snowing!!” I’m a real big optimist so this was more than perfect for me. After being outside taking photos and videos, I decided to call it a night. I think it was the numb sensation in my fingers, toes and nose.
But when we woke up and walked out of our little cottage, I did NOT expect for it to be still snowing and most of the grounds were covered in snow. Apparently this was a really rare occasion for the week, I’ll just call it a special surprise

**in case you were wondering, we stayed in the small town of Capileira in the Sierra Nevada region in a hotel called “Hotel Finca Los Llanos”. It’s just about 2.5 hours driving from where we live in Marbella.
