I’m applying for a job taking photographs of newborn babies. I think it would be an awesome experience :)
My husband, Allyn & I on my birthday. What an awesome day :)
To all my lovely followers,
I’ve not posted much on my Tumblr as of late due to my limited data package on my husband and I’s phone plan. Since I’ve last posted Allyn and I have moved into a 31 ft RV which is parked on a 2 acre lot. It’s been wonderful living together in this small, woodland space. It has been quite testing at times as we had little AC (only when we were absolutely withering away from the heat could we use our AC system.) We didn’t have hot water much of the time, there’s tons of mosquitoes, yellow flies (which bite!) and mold throughout our little space from keeping all the windows open. However, it has been such an awesome experience! We’ve been through a lot in just our first year of marriage and I feel that we’ve built a good foundation in our relationship. Now we’re off to start a new chapter in our lives, we’ll be moving to beautiful Tennessee on Monday to help start a Yoga/Wellness retreat. I’m eternally grateful for such an amazing opportunity! I’ve always felt I belonged in the mountains, surround by Mother Earth’s beauty and wildness. Mmm, wild… J I’m a lover of wilderness, mountains, the Moon and animals. I know I will flourish and blossom there. Allyn and I are upgrading to a mother-in-law apartment above my Uncle Herman and Aunt Mary’s gorgeous home. I’m beyond happy to have hot water and AC/heating, but more than those things; I’m happy to have space to create, to meditate and have the ability to stretch my body without restrictions. The house sits high on a mountain top surrounded by 120 acres of pure forest and streams. We have our own little porch where I will spend many of mornings sipping on my hot coffee and breathing in the fresh, brisk mountain air. Our Kitty, Moggy Osborne, will be coming with us. Moggy showed up at the RV one evening and acted as if he’d always known us. He fits right in with Allyn and I, he’s very chill and goes with the flow just as we do. I’ve attach a few photos from my life lately and hope to post more on here once we move.
I can not wait to live in the mountains. They are where I belong. I heal there. I thrive surrounded by the pure, organic, authenticity of it all. I feel so connected and centered. I feel safe, trusting and trusted. I feel nurtured and supported. I feel a oneness with everything around me. For now its a place I go to to re-energize, to center myself and ground myself. And in this moment, that is all I need but one day I know it will be my home :]

“A young woman was restrained, force-fed and injected with cosmetics in a high street shop window as part of a hard-hitting protest against animal testing.
Jacqueline Traide was tortured in front of hundreds of horrified shoppers in a bid to raise awareness and end the practise.
The 24-year-old endured 10 hours of experiments, which included having her hair shaved and irritants squirted in her eyes, as part of a worldwide campaign by Lush Cosmetics and The Humane Society.
The disturbing stunt took place in Lush’s Regent Street store, one of the UK’s busiest shopping streets.
Jacqueline appeared genuinely terrified as she was pinned down on a bench and had her mouth stretched open with two metal hooks while a man in a white coat force-fed her until she choked and gagged.
The artist was also injected with numerous needles, had her skin braised and lotions and creams smeared across her face.
Passers-by were gobsmacked to see Jacqueline, a social sculpture student at Oxford Brookes University, forced to have a section of her head shaved.
The gruesome spectacle aimed to highlight the cruelty inflicted on animals during cosmetic laboratory tests and raise awareness that animal testing is still a common practise.
The Humane Society International and Lush Cosmetics have joined forces to launch the largest-ever global campaign to end animal testing for cosmetics.
The campaign, launched to coincide with World Week for Animals in Laboratories, is being rolled out simultaneously in over 700 Lush Ltd shops across forty-seven countries including the United States, Canada, India, Australia, New Zealand, South Korea and Russia.
Lush campaign manager Tamsin Omond said: “The ironic thing is that if it was a beagle in the window and we were doing all these things to it, we’d have the police and RSPCA here in minutes.
“But somewhere in the world, this kind of thing is happening to an animal every few seconds on average.
“The difference is, it’s normally hidden. We need to remind people it is still going on.”
