Take Me Back to New Orleans!

I miss it so much! Now that Mardi Gras is upon us, Newaaah-lyns is on my mind. Here’s some pictures and a short video of my experience with the love of my life. Learn how to make life a collection of your favorite moments. Please enjoy and share. Gracias!

Miss Something

Our dogs. We always miss our dogs the most. They know when we are leaving and try to go with us. Sometimes they are successful! Second is our patio. Its cutely decorated and the perfect size. I always can’t wait to come back home!

So cute

Can we go with you daddy? Please?

Eat

Always eat. We learned quickly (especially being vegetarians) that we are happiest with frequent feedings. Oranges, chips, carrots, and of course, mimosas! There’s vitamin C in that, right?

Important to eat before you travel!

Arrive in Style

“Roll out the red carpet, pull back the velvet ropes, and slide into your car.” He said it, we didn’t argue. Be proud and accepting of your environment, and always make the best of it. Live the life you want to, and watch beauty unfold.

So fancy!

Lights camera fun!

Lights–camera–fun!

Immerse & Enjoy

Enjoy the things they’re known for, love the kitsch, appreciate the music, make a donation, embrace religion, and observe beautiful art. Walking around this city and allowing ourselves to be in awe was a truly magical moment. Tag–you’re it!

I think these are the largest I've ever seen.

Be Delighted

Be an artist. Be a spectacle. Be yourself. Of all the things we can be, what do you choose to be? I choose happiness, love, and excitement. We should ask ourselves: “am I the Adult my child self wanted to grow up to be?” I’m still working on it. What about you?IMG_6360

My Front Yard

Do you feel a sense of life happening around you in your community? Do you walk often, or ride your bike, just because its so great to do that? Have you ever noticed something you’ve never seen before, while walking around your neighborhood? Each morning in Pacific Beach, California, feels just like that. This magical place seems to attract new and interesting people, objects, and experiences on a daily basis. I think its caused by the super saturation of sun and perfect weather. Either way, it enhances my life to live in a place that is so…alive.

Color Your World

How easy is it to make a change? Easy. Super easy. All you have to do is…DO IT! Just like Nike has been telling us for years! I have lately been inspired by simple shapes, colorful displays, and thought provoking images. So I created something that might have those qualities.

Step 1. Buy duck tape. Or is it “Duct” tape? Who knows #whocares? Gotta get the durable stuff. Don’t sacrifice quality for price! (Value is greater!) I choose neon colors, because, well, we all know hot colors are on trend for this spring/summer! Right! 😉 Total cost? Less than $15.00 at Home Depot.

Step 2. Study Pinterest. With so many good people in the world, there is also as much good ideas, good art, good food, and good friends to go along with it. Pinterest is the perfect place to find all of those things! That’s where I got my inspiration. Now it’s your turn!

Step 3. Stick it on! Just make sure you use some durable scissors to cut it. It’s saves a lot of time. Remember, there are no rules to life, including duct tape art ( I looked it up: duct tape is the widget, Duck tape is the firm that branded itself the best). So create and make sure it looks awesome. If not, try again, I mean, it’s only duct tape!

Step 4. Enjoy! Invite all your friends to take pictures. This is actually in my alleyway, which coincidentally gets SO MUCH foot traffic. Maybe because we live in the most popular tourist town in the country? And one block from the sand? So I guess it’s going to get a lot of traffic. Perfect!
