Learning To Go With The Flow Of Life

Just when you think you’ve got things figured out, the Universe swoops in with a big change. This is just the way things seem to work, right? Sometimes I think it’s a lesson or reminder to not get to comfy or attached to one specific thing.

Life is a process of flow, and he who clings to any form, however splendid, will suffer by resisting the flow. ~ Buddha

Since moving to Bainbridge Island and getting married, the hubs and I have found something we weren’t sure we’d ever find: a place that truly feels like home. Bainbridge Island is this for us. It’s the answer…and everything we’ve been looking for.

That being said, because of my hubby’s work ~ we’re heading back to LA. We both look at this as an opportunistic time. Although we’ll be missing our lil island, LA has a lot to offer. We both have previous work/life experience there and we’re looking forward to meeting back up with the people we’ve missed.

On the road trip down, we stopped in Portland, Eugene and Ashland {Oregon}. I love Oregon – such gorgeous green landscapes! I think we both loved Ashland OR too. Such a cute little mountain town ~ oh so charming with the snowy mountain tops and farm-to-table cafes.

By the way, there are ways to get your greens on while travelling on the road. We google’d or yelp’d our way to ‘natural markets’ throughout various cities and found ourselves yummy options + fresh squeezed juices!

Bring your mason jar along for the ride and you’ll have the perf container to go. You can take these on the road easily if you’re in cooler climates (overnight, my car was the perfect refrigerator!) or use hotel fridge’s if need be.

Luckily, we avoided any snow issues and headed straight through the Cali border. We fueled up on green juice and jammed to our favs. (Although, when you’re going stir crazy and you’re feeling silly – you’ve just gotta.. git… it…out…somehow!!

Sometimes you just gotta sing and dance!

Pit Stop! While Skip was on a biz call, I headed over to the Mt. Shasta area: gorgeous Shasta Lake!

On a day like that, simply breathtaking! Very good vibes up there too. There is easy access off the I-5 or if you have time, check out the camping options!

1,000 hours later and after finally arriving in Venice Beach, we realized how lucky we are to be able to make this short-term move. Happy to be back in Cali yo…

{Did I mention that it’s 75 degrees and sunny?!}

Breathe in ~ all ~ the possibilities in the world!
