Vegas, Baby!

25 Aug

Confession…I’d never been to Vegas.

I know, I know. I’ve lived in LA for 3 years and still hadn’t ventured over to Vegas.

So color me delighted when my family decided to make our first annual mini reunion a Vegas vaca. Woot!

My parents and siblings and I all live spread throughout the country, so we typically only all get together at Christmas.

Enter Vegas.

I drove, obviously. Road trip. Woot! And it meant I got to stop at Seven Magic Mountains- the cool art sculpture in the middle of the dessert.

Having parents and littles there, plus the bro and sis meant we got to have wholesome days, and scandalous nights ๐Ÿ˜‰

We also took a road trip within a road trip to Zion National Park in Utah. Yosemite stillย has my heart, but it was magnificent.

Honestly though, after a couple of stressful weeks, just being with the family is precisely what my soul needed.

Road Trip to Yosemite

29 Jul

Yosemite is one of those places that has been on my bucket list for years, and after seeing it, I’m glad it was.

It’s very much unlike anything I’ve ever seen. With the massive rocks, big waterfalls, and trees for days, you really can spend days getting lost among its trails.

Unfortunately, I only really had a day. Still, I managed to pack a lot into my short time there. I saw Half Dome, the falls, El Capitan, and the explored the Valley and its little shops.

The toughest thing about the trip was hiking to the upper falls. Its basically like climbing a flight of stairs for 2 and a half hours. Couple that with the fact that it was about 90 . Or the new cupcake shop that opened in Old Town. I’m flexible ๐Ÿ˜‰

Have I mentioned lately how much I love LA? There’s so many beautiful little gems, fun places to take pics, and little neighborhoods to get lost in.

And Then I Trekked West

Every now and then, I need a minute. Just to be away from my computer. To not have to write anything. To not have a jam-packed schedule of auditions, tapings, fittings, etc. Time to just regroup. Recharge. Reflect. Last month, I took a trip out west. And I got the opportunity to do a little hiking. Saw the Grand Canyon (amazing, btw. It’s like a giant oil painting-totally surreal). Take in some fresh air. Turn off the cell. Not check the email, and it was fantastic. Actual time alone with my thoughts. I made a lot of decisions. Next month I’ll begin a longer journey west. Truly embracing my passion and taking my acting career to LA more full time. There’s a lot of reasons I hadn’t made the choice until just recently, but the most important thing right now is that I’m ready. My mind hasn’t felt so clear and focused in a long time. And I learned a bit too. Not necessarily that I need to take a trek across the country every time I’m feeling wiped; but I do need to take some regular time out to just recoup. It’s more so than just balancing my schedule. I’ve actually gotten better about that. Its more about taking time to clear my thoughts. To wipe the slate and allow space for some fresh ideas. How else can I hope to grow?
