a cardinal perches
on branches overgrown
critiquing the moves
of kings and queens below
the chessboard empties
as knights gallop away
taking another loss
until a rematch someday
strolling down a trail
natures sings its tune
concluding a perfect
picnic with you
Just reminiscing on a recent adventure of mine… I love this song too, so I thought I would attach it as well. I also want to know: Do you guys want to see full playlist posts on here again? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments, and I hope you enjoyed this!
“there’s a universe
swirling inside you.
you have to learn to be
your own earth,
you are a natural
not a natural disaster.”

I spent my weekend kayaking on calm waters, swimming on the shoreline, getting lost in good books, & enjoying the lovely lakeside… After such a long and intense week of training, camping was exactly what I needed to refresh my mind & body before another busy week starts. The summer clock is ticking away fast, and I only have a few more weeks before “busy” takes on a whole other meaning.
*I am trying to enjoy it while I can, because it is not going to last much longer! I hope all of my readers are having a great summer! Thanks for reading. 🙂
Do you know those songs that have such an irresistible summer vibe and always leave you craving a stroll on the beach with a glass of sweet lemonade? This playlist has definitely been on repeat during these summer months, and I am very happy to share a few of my favorites with all of you. Enjoy!

“A father is someone you look up to no matter how tall you grow.”
(I loved this quote, despite my short stature.)
I am so thankful to have such a fantastic father… You have taught me so much and have made me the person I am today. It has been an incredible 16 years, and I am looking forward to all of the wonderful more to come. I love you so much, and I am proud to call you my dad. HAPPY FATHERS DAY!
