  • 🛋 Living room tour! Yes, we finally have furniture after our move, and completed our minimalist, mid-century modern space. Our design centered around clean lines, organic curves, and a balance of wood and texture. And I wasn’t sure about adding such bright colors, but ended up loving them! (couch and chair are from @joybird) .
If you swipe right, you’ll see the before and after, and also #sponsored @modsydesign’s incredible 3D replica that helped us bring this entire room to life. You can see all of the photos and sourcing of where we bought furniture/accessories from in my blog post, which is linked in my profile. •

  • 🌅 Beliefs aside, seeing such natural wonders, when no possible explanation exists, has a way of reminding me that there is something greater. Something so omniscient. Such as this, Tanah Lot,  which in #Balinese means “land in sea”.... a natural rock formation that has stood in the crashing ocean for 800 years, with a sacred temple built on top. When it is high tide, it appears to be floating, and during low tide you are able to walk out to it, to practice and pray if wished. •
Experiencing a culture that gives such appreciation and meaning to those wonders... truly beautiful. Inspiring. Heartening. 💛

  • 🍍The local market at 6am. Where the village comes to life... their livelihood, their religious practices, their interaction with one another, the food that feeds their families, and supports them too. The clothes they make, the baskets they weave, the flowers they pick. The rice they harvest in the paddies, the animals they raise, and the fish they catch. The tobacco they roll, the bamboo they build with.
.
.
The sounds, the smells, the energy. All while much of the world sleeps. Really quite amazing.
.
Tourists don’t go to these local markets, but my friend and I asked our driver if we could accompany him and his wife to his some morning. They happily did so, and it was something I will never forget. Including the point at which a very happy woman asked to take a picture with me, touching her pregnant belly as to pass good fortune to it because I was tall and had blonde hair. Different looking than they see. ☺️ As well as finding a tiny cardboard box with a young mama cat and her kitten, amongst all the hustle and bustle. 😻
.
I posted a few videos of the whole experience in my stories if you want to see more. ❤️

  • being in Bali is being is seeing the world through the most colorful, beautiful lens. 🌈 25 hours on a plane, 10 friends, one house. so much to be grateful for. especially that still and solemn places like this remain amongst all the industrialized chaos. .
These are the vibrant fruit platters we have every morning, with mangosteen, papaya, dragonfruit, and many that I don’t even know how to say. So delicious and refreshing.
.
And the video is the of the villa we are staying at. The pool overlooking the ocean is a serious dream. 🌴

I’ll be posting extras on my stories if you want to see more. ❤️

  • 🛏 So.... I slept on an air mattress for 29 days... yep, #thingsthathappenwhenyoumove. 😅 Because it is HARD to decide on a mattress when you're going to be sleeping on it for many, many years. I wanted to be 💯 sure. And I finally committed. It was the @tempurpedic #LuxeAdapt that won me over, because it's literally like sleeping in a cradle. It absorbs my body and its pressure points, which I’ve never had in a #mattress. The materials it's made of take into consideration my temperature and weight, so I stay cool at night (hand raised if you are hot box when you sleep!).
*
My sleep is 💯. Total zen, and worth the wait. What has your mattress experience been? I’m curious!
