hafta hafta start off with oahu.. my best friend, kate, and I went for about a month, just to hang out on the beach.. jealous? yea, me too.. no revelations, nothing serious, just pure relaxation on the local beaches away from the tourist spots.. literally would wake up, grab our goober sandwiches, lay on the sand from about 10 to probably 5.. every day.. for a month
next.. colorado, not summer colorado, but winter colorado.. i adore the snow.. finally can say i'm alright at boarding.. it's that moment you realize you're on top of a mountain.. a mountain! you're there and you CANNOT deny the glory of god..
bonnaroo.. yep, had to do it. four days of concerts?!? are ya kidding me? it's my happy place.. sleepin in tents, no showering, hippies everywhere, music, naps to o.a.r. in a field.. need i say more?
how about.. 713 eagle pass.. one of my favorite places i've ever been here on this earth.. this house holds my best memories of life thus far. happiest, saddest, most life changing moments have been here. it's those college years man.. ahh.. tear.. thanksgiving dinners, midnight shots, moon walks, sitting in the boat, intense lava games, carrying each others burdens (mostly me coming into julie or kate's room bawling about who knows what), late night gossip, concerts on the porch, campfires.. ok, i gotta stop seriously this could go on for about 20 posts..
mullin, texas. our deer lease. something about that country air, it can heal about anything.. it's just raw nature.. grew up in suburbia, went from apartment complex, to house, back to apartment complex and there is just something so free about the country. it's the stars.. and the trees.. and the four-wheeler i think..
my "heaven on earth" place would be italy. studied abroad in spain one summer, kate studied in germany, decided to do a little exploration on one of the last weekends. met in italy. have i mentioned how freakin blessed my life is? traveled all day, train after train, to find this place. got there, couldn't find an open hostel, once we decided crashin on the beach wouldn't actually be that bad, found one room open at this hostel in the back of town. the second picture is the booth we occupied at a lil bar in town. sat there the entire night, did not get up for a thing.. the picture pretty much captures the entire night.. my favorite booth on earth.
