The Dunes

Shirt:Thrifted; Jeggings: Free People; Boots: Steve Madden; Rings: Turquoise bead ring made by me; vintage spoon ring; Bracelet: Bought in Mexico
Imperial Dunes, California.  I met the dub-t side of myself this weekend, and I kinda liked her!  She was fun, easy-going and didn't mind all the sand, lack of running water, and being that girl who attempted to put makeup on to look "cute".  And, on the plus side - I got to ride an ATV for the very first time.  Boo-yah.  Life is fun.  I mean, when you take the time to get out, try something new, and explore the the earth God gave you, you can't help but feel excited to be alive.  There's nothing like packing up, jumping in the truck and letting the scenery fly by as you embark on an adventure that bears endless possibilities.  I love the freedom of being on the road and wondering where it will take me.  I love the freedom of the earth, providing us with so many beautiful sights and opportunities.  And, I guess what I'm trying to say is, I'm just a girl with a gypsy soul who longs to roam the earth as free as the sand that shapes the dunes.  But for now, I'll settle on sunsets and road trips.  And thank Him for that.
