I’ve been asked to come home

While I always knew that Colorado was temporary for me, an adventure of sorts rather than a move to grow roots, I’ve been asked to come home a bit earlier than I expected. I’m going to be a helping hand to my grandma back in my hometown. My daddy-o asked this of me and, well,…

Living with no point to prove

Living (adj): not dead : having life Since moving out to Colorado my definition of living has changed. My definition of living is mentioned above. The reality is that that's the only definition there is. Exploring, creating, impacting, learning, are all things you do while you're living. I used to believe that doing something outrageous and spontaneous…

To whom it no longer concerns

Once someone hurt me, badly. Wastes of oxygen. We cross paths with them throughout life. Sometimes it's a quick encounter and unfortunately other times it's not. I happened to cross paths with one for well over 4 years, and it became something rather infectious for well over 3. I left that person in the dark…

Doing super rad things can be hard

How? Well, in the same way following your heart can be! In my case, doing super rad things and following my heart meant moving to Colorado. So here I am. I moved here 5 months and 13 days ago. I had no doubts, no potential earth shaking struggles I could think of. However, in my recent realization I…

A Colorado Sunrise

Why do I willingly go into work at 7am? Let me give you an idea... The sun rises in Boulder come in all different colors, cloud types, and intensity. When my world wakes up, it's a beautiful thing. Some of these photos are taken from my car and some from my desk--so they aren't the…

Kaite got a new camera

AND WENT TO VAIL FOR THE FIRST TIME. This past weekend my dad and I went to Vail, CO to get out of cloudy Boulder and to see the fall colors.  The color we saw there was breathtakingly beautiful. We took the gondola up Vail Mountain then proceeded to hike "off-trail" to the summit because most trails…

Farewell Charm City

I decided that this is my last summer in Baltimore. I therefore decided that this is will the most awesome summer in Baltimore. I created a check list of things I needed to do before July 30th, 2015. Lets leave Baltimore the right way, shall we? Outdoor festivals while reconnecting with your longest childhood friend, Vicki. #honfest…

I think it’s time for something different.

Two nights ago I signed a lease. Now typically after signing a lease there's no turning back. This isn't me saying that this situation has some exception, this is me reiterating that there's no turning back. In August I'll be living in Boulder, Colorado, something I've wanted for almost two years. Pretty badass, right? What's even better?…

Exploring with the best company

Myself. Sometimes the most enjoyable experiences come from exploring on your own. So today I decided to do just that.  I was initially pissed because I hate snow. I have vented about snow for extended amounts of time, and while it doesn't solve anything, it feels pretty damn good. Today I chose to do the…
