When February rolls around we put a lot of attention on to others, and that’s great, but what about yourself? Giving to others is a form of self love because what you give you receive, but what is it like to truly be wildly in love with ourselves?

Since April I traveled to Bryce Canyon, Grand Canyon, Zion, Sedona Arizona, Chicago, Rome, the South of France, Long Beach, Lopez Lake, San Francisco, Lake Tahoe, and Los Angeles a handful of times.
