COLORADO TRIP | ANIMAL SANCTUARY

We just got back from visiting family in Colorado. If you follow me on twitter or facebook 
than you have see a bit of these beautiful animals we got to see on our trip. The thing 
I loved about visiting the Animal Sanctuary was reading all the stories of these rescued beauties. 
 Some of the animals were held in apartment buildings, others were going to be killed. 
So it was so beautiful seeing these animals be free, some of the lions were kept in cages
before they came to the sanctuary and never were allowed to roam. 

One of my favorite aspects of the sanctuary was that you got to walk above all of the animals 
on a boardwalk so that you didn't disturb the animals. There were Tigers, Lions, and Bears... 
(did anyone else get that saying in their head???) ok just me. But there were also wolves, leopards 
and many more different animals. If you are in the area you have to go check them out. 
Have you ever been to an animal sanctuary? What was your favorite animal?

RAMBLINGS | VOL 2

Ive talked a lot about change and this current season of life lately. About how we’re waiting for
direction and growing in our understanding of what it means to truly trust. In all of this the
 hardest thing that I am recognizing that during this time I have to "let go." 

I need to let go of some of the things that I hold closest to my heart. That when I really trust with
everything that I have then I am free to let go of my deepest desires and fears. I can let those 
things "die"in a sense, meaning I am unafraid to move forward in life even if those
 hopes and expectations don’t come with me.

This is sometimes really difficult, I want certain things, I want to see these beautiful dreams become a
reality. Its like when I said that tomorrow may look different than what I expected and that’s ok. Out of all of this I am relearning that it is ok to grieve these losses, for me it’s a true “death” of sorts when I lay my dreams down. I am learning that I have to do this to keep my untrusting and controlling nature at bay. It is the hardest thing to let go of the things I want to control the most. But when I release all of these things I become a better me. I can embrace what is next without regret or disappointment.


By no means do I do this well, but I see the value in remembering this and trying
to pursue this in my life. It will be a life long  thing that I will constantly learning :)

SUMMERTIME FAVORITES


1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 |

Some of my favorite things in summer are simple. They are things that help me 
feel like time slows down. I like to create more, enjoy the outside, and simply breathe
a little deeper. These 9 things are a few of my summer favorites which include: tasty drinks, 
yummy salads (yes I said yummy because food makes me feel like a child when it is just 
too good), DIY shorts, and of course dresses and skirts. 

What are some of your summer favorites?
