What is left.
A presaved photograph on my Instagram feed before everything disappeared. I dropped my external hard drive Thursday morning. 1.5 TB of photos, graphics, work, everything... gone. Just like that.
I documented 2 years of my life and it's gone just like that. Amazing, right?! I was shocked that I cried. I was shocked that my digital hoarding tendencies meant that much to me because I never cry! Never! Ever!
It took several days to get over but I think I am okay. I think I am okay with this digital purge. It was the ultimate purge and the ultimate way to start over.
Now, do I push "replay" to every adventure I had over the past 2 years....
Push "play" to new great adventures?
🎶 On the road again. Goin' places that I've never been. Seein' things that I may never see again. And I can't wait to get on the road again 🎶
Arizona, it's been real. Time to push on. Much love to everyone at @azoutdoorfun for all the help and advice on the rig and just making the past 6 months awesome and memorable. See y'all down the road.
Went east this weekend to try to catch storms. Caught some great storms just in the daytime 😐. Daytime lightning is one of the hardest things to capture for me. Learning new tricks and what does and doesn't work was the game this weekend. But I'm happy to say that I actually captured a couple of great strikes.... here's the first, stay tuned for the rest. If you have any tips for daytime lightning, please share 😉
As this new moon enters into Leo & I approach another year of life, I have been feeling very conflicted, moody, & like everything has been harder than it needs to be. I embrace change because change results in growth, & I've had a lot of change over the last 2 years. I come from a very insecure negative way of being. Everything was a struggle & my way of handling life wasn't always the best. I'm lucky to be alive & not in prison. It's easy to fall back into the past & into the negative, but I don't like doing anything the easy way, & I sure as hell will never be a quitter. I am grateful for this new me. This new sense of awareness. This new way of being. So as I approach my 29th year on Wednesday, I reflect gratitude that my path hasn't ended. That I've been blessed with the life I live, that I've come as far as I have & see nothing but more growth coming. Reminding myself to stay positive & optimistic in these times of change. 🖤🙏♌ #ASHLEYPAIGECOLLECTIVE#LeoBaby#UniversalConsciousness

It was at this very moment, sitting atop the highest point in #statefortyeight that I decided we will hike the ten tallest peaks in AZ before winter. A day will come when J will no longer be able to accompany me on long, strenuous treks- so for now I relish in the fact he beat me to the summit of yet another mountain... and the next nine to come. Agassiz Peak-- you're up next. #peakproject#mthumphreys#flagstaff#conquerarizona

And if travel is like love, it is, in the end, mostly because it’s a heightened state of awareness, in which we are mindful, receptive, undimmed by familiarity and ready to be transformed. That is why the best trips, like the best love affairs, never really end // Pico Iyer
Today we are headed to the Azores, stay tuned! Can't wait to share our experiences very soon 😊
