Kelseys 21st

She is one of the most beautiful souls… and for 21 years we have been through it all together. I’m so lucky to have such an amazing sissy & best friend. I can’t wait for the rest of her beautiful journey to unfold. I love you Kelsey Loraine, happy birthday.

Never Touch The Ground

Your 20’s are your ‘selfish’ years. It’s a decade to immerse yourself in every single thing possible. Be selfish with your time, and all the aspects of you. Tinker with shit, travel, explore, love a lot, love a little, and never touch the ground.

— Kyoko Escamilla

….and if you can, try to keep beautiful, strong, empowered women by your side along the way. The ride will be bumpy, that is inevitable — but at least you’ll have someone to sing with on the way to all destinations. So here’s to the beautiful women in my life that help me keep on keepin’ on when I’d really rather not. Thank you for calling me on my shit & embracing my flaws. Thank you for showing up on my doorstep with wine & ice cream when I stopped answering the phone. Thank you for getting my ass up bright and early for the gym. I love you, I adore you, and I’m a wee bit more sane because of you. Cheers to the next decade and the rest that shall follow. Nothin’ can stop us, girls… Nothin’.

Good Girls Don’t Grow On Trees

Alright, can I get a hell yeah for Cris Cab? He is my new favorite artist (besides Frank Ocean, of course) I’m still browsing through his music to make sure it’s love and not lust. Either way one thing’s for sure, I am definitely in full on ‘like’ with Cris Cab.

The opening lyrics to his song “Good Girls” is:

“Hey man, I’ve learned my lesson 
Got a good girl, count your blessings”

But what really stole my heart was this:

“good girls don’t grow on trees”

Oh hi, I’m sold! I love that because it is so true. It is so hard to find a partner that can give & understand the unique love your heart desires. We are all different therefore we all need different types of love. Unfortunately honesty, respect, patience, trust and kindness are becoming less important; The definition of a “healthy relationship” is very misunderstood to the men & women of my generation. Many of us have forgotten what it really means to love and be loved.

I do know one thing — Any woman will tell you this: a good man is hard to find & even harder to keep. I’m sure of it, because my town has an abnormal amount of douche-bags-in-diesels and a lack of gentlemen (not that I’m looking, but they’re everywhere! it scares me. ) But it goes the same for men, because like Cris Cab says, good girls don’t grow on trees. We have to honor, cherish, and embrace the beautiful relationships and love we have in our lives. Surround yourself with people that make you feel excited — I can honestly say I have people in my life that make my stomach feel like a million fireflies are having a freaking fiesta in there. Absolutely electric. They encourage me to be the best woman I can be. Because of those people I believe in my dreams and I’m brave enough to do anything & everything in order to reach them. Those are the kind of people we all deserve to have in our lives.

At the end of the day this is my opinion, so as my grandmother says “take it, leave it, file it away, or never look at it again”. Alls I’m sayin’ is I encourage you to be picky about one thing: the type of love/people you choose to surround yourself with.

It can change your life.

This is my BFF Joe (not Jill)


Joseph & I have been friends since we were wee. We’ve almost strangled each other a fair amount of times throughout our friendship, but nevertheless we sure do love each other. We went to sushi for dinner & he chose where we were eating. I was a little bit hesitant because it’s ‘All you can eat’ sushi… Maybe it’s just me but that sounds a little bit sketchy. I was wrong, it wasn’t sketchy at all, it was really good! I always have a good time with him, he can honestly make me laugh so hard no matter what kind of mood I’m in. He is always real with me & does not hesitate to call me out on my shit (which is often). I’m really lucky he has stuck around this long, and he’s pretty damn lucky I have as well. Guess that’s what makes our friendship unique:) I love you Joseph

XOXO
