Hello, Hello

April 7, 2015

Let me be the first to say: welcome to my new site! As long as I have been able to talk, I have been a storyteller. Over the past few years, I have refined my writing + photography into something I feel passionate about. Something that started out serendipitously has become something so much more. It’s been a slow & thought out process to finally start my blog and I couldn’t be more happy (or nervous) to share it with you. So here it is–my digital journal of sorts in which you will find stories of life, love, adventure and travel.

LIFE | Let’s be honest: I’m a talker. Rather than spilling all my thoughts & stories simply through my Instagram handle, I have been wanting a platform to share, connect and hopefully relate to others who are on this same crazy journey called life. I want to share about authentic, true moments, not just the ones that seem like they’re perfectly pieced together. Because that’s real life–being proud & sharing all your facets.

LOVE | Love is a great, inspiring thing. It’s what makes the world go round, ya’ll! I want to share all sorts of love stories. Small love stories, such as ones of amazing brands or people I admire, alongside big love stories, such as the ones about the incredible people I have in my life. I believe in the saying “passion changes everything” + I want to share about the things I am passionate about + the things I have great love for.

ADVENTURE | Each day we have adventures–whether it’s climbing Mt. Everest or burning the new recipe you made for supper. The good + the bad, the grand + the minuscule–these stories all make up the fabric of our lives. I want to use this site as a means of giving a voice to the small adventures as much as the wildy-inspiring ones in hopes that you’ll share yours with me.

TRAVEL | My story wouldn’t be complete without a chapter of traveling. With family on each coast of the U.S. + a long list of “must-go’s,” traveling is a part of my core. Experiencing new places, people, cultures + food will always excite me. So naturally, sharing the amazing, memorable, hilarious and even lesson-learned stories of my travels will definitely be part of this journal.

I want to be frank & say that in no way do I feel like I have a more important story to tell than the next person. I am starting this journey to simply share my perspective & to cultivate community. To say that I am thrilled for what’s to come would be an understatement. What an exciting journey to be embarking on! Thank you for reading along, encouraging, supporting, and celebrating with me.

xxo, elana
