All the land near our property is so green thanks to all the rain SoCal has gotten over the last month! Wish these green views could last all year long! @ourmoderndwelling

The fam and i were hoping to catch the "super blood wolf moon" πŸ’‰πŸΊπŸŒ from our property tonight since there isn't very much light pollution up there but unfortunately it was too cloudly and the moon was hidden ;( the consolation prize though was being able to see the lake light up like we have never seen before with all the beautiful sunset colors. @ourmoderndwelling

A friend of mine is a police officer in San Diego and he asked if I wanted to do a ride along. So yesterday I had the opportunity to follow along with him and those who protect and serve the city. I documented the day in my IG stories if you would like to check it out. πŸš”

Another fav from 2018. I really like how the colors came together for this one. I was able to create a complimentary color scheme with the warmth of the golden building and the coolness of the sky. I also like the slight highlight on the right side thanks to being able to catch some light from the sun right before it set. It’s interesting to note that the Flatiron Building stands at just 22 stories tall and was once one of the tallest skyscrapers in the world. When construction began, locals placed bets on what would happen when the wind knocked it down. πŸ˜…πŸ’¨

Happy New Year all! Looking back on 2018 it's clear to me that I didn't share a whole of images on Instagram compared to years past (I've been on here since 2010…crazy!). I actually didn't even take a lot of pictures when I compare it to a typical year. It's not really because of some creative funk but more so because of life. To be honest it was a pretty wild year juggling big life moments like moving, finishing graduate school, having a new baby, almost building our home on our property and then not, close family members needing help and lots of other stuff in-between all that. And while I don't know how the squares on my grid will be filled this year I do know that I have so much to be grateful and thankful for! We are healthy, loved and cared for. So with all that being said I have some favorite pics from 2018 that I wanted to share. This image was taken out in the Coachella Valley desert. I remember at the time being bummed that the light wasn't too great. So I decided to bring the drone back and just call it a day but as I did I tilted my drone's camera straight down and saw this scene where the light actually created some nice clean shadows from the desert brush. This moment is a reminder to me to always keep looking for the good even when it might be hard to see at first. #fromwhereidrone

Hey IG friends this is me and my fam and I wanted to share that we have 4 home building updates now posted over on our account @ourmoderndwelling: After a loooong process we finally found a new contractor to handle our project, we just closed on our construction loan, we just submitted all necessary plans to the county and purchased our water meter. So after a year we are officially moving forward with building on our property (finally!). With that being said we are starting to post again to our home building IG account. If you would like to hear more about what happen during our period of waiting and follow our journey as we build we would love for you to follow along over at @ourmoderndwelling
