My front yard is the La Sal Mountains and my backyard is the Moab Rim. Definitely the beauty we are all surrounded by everyday!

Nothing but shenanigans.

Volturara Appula, Italy. That’s where my grandparents are from. Tiny little village on top of a mountain. Insane beauty, homemade meals, and lots of love.
