a little disconnected + hello from europe!


Sometimes it takes getting away and "disconnecting" in order to be able to refocus. I have realized that it's actually a blessing to feel disconnected from the world, and with people sometimes. Otherwise you don't realize how good it is to reconnect and get back on a roll. Sometimes we just need that extra push - because let's face it - we don't all always feel motivated and like we are on top of the world. We're only human! So to be completely honest, I feel disconnected all the time in one way or another, and I noticed that I get so caught up in everything that I don't truly know what's best for me until I get away and look at things from afar.  ( Plus It's amazing what putting away your phone for hours and hours at a time and exploring new places with loved ones can do for you!)

Over the last few months there have been so many ups and downs, but after making some big changes recently it seems like (fingers-crossed) everything is going uphill. Somehow I managed to make my way to Texas not once, but twice, this summer - for two amazing and life-changing KW events. And now I sit typing this a week later in Europe. 

I feel so fortunate to have been able to attend MegaCamp last week because so many new doors were opened for me there, I learned from the best of the best, my mom was featured on the big screen (!), and I had an idea that could quite literally change the course of my career... but more to come on that in a few days! 

I've been taking my time processing everything I have learned, and trying to do things step by step. I have this awful habit of biting off more than I can chew and then all of my ideas and projects end up unfinished. I learned recently that it's okay to take your time, and to not try to compete with everyone around you, but rather stay laser focused on yourself and your work and to be intentional about everything you do. I'm embracing this fully, and am using this 2 week European getaway as an "eat, pray, love" experience (lol) to get in tune with my plans and be able to come back in September stronger than ever. 

So anyways, to kick off our trip, we flew into Geneva, Switzerland. We decided against exploring Geneva until the very end of our trip, and instead drove up to Lausanne for the night. We stopped in Nyon and Montreux to see the Chillon Castle. The walk around the lake was gorgeous, and of course the small towns were adorable! I don't have too many pictures (like I said, we weren't on our phones too much!) but I hope you enjoy! At the end of our trip I will upload our full itinerary I had made, but in the mean time if you need any recommendations on where to eat, stay, etc. let me know!
