“The main thing is to be moved, to love, to hope, to tremble, to live.” —Auguste Rodin⠀ My inspiration often comes from art. More and more I’ve been looking around me..what does it really mean to be inspired? How does it change you? What will you do with it? Inspiration comes when we are living, breathing, experiencing emotions and adventures. ⠀ I vow to go experience, to be moved and to love and to hope and to tremble and to live. And I vow to always capture and evoke those feelings in my photos—of movement, love, hope, trembling, and life. Thank you, Rodin for the inspiration with your words and your art. I can’t believe it took me 3 trips to Paris to finally make it to this incredible museum. It honestly changed me. ⠀
This is me. I’m 5’9’’ of mostly legs. I have never dyed my hair and I wear a lot of black. My favorite thing to eat is probably pasta and any kind of bread and also cheese. I am also mostly Italian. I have terrible near-sightedness. I try to talk to my brother every day because he lives in California and he’s one of my favorite people. I hate bacon. I wish I spoke a dozen languages, starting with Italian. Or maybe German. I want to live in Vienna some day. I’m really good at quoting obscure lines in movies. I love jazz. Monarchs make me sad and also happy. I am known to many as “Waldo”. - There are so many specific things that I know about myself. But there are still so many things I am trying to figure out. Things that are harder to talk about. I think speaking the truth, journaling about myself has been the easiest way to grow and connect more with my inner self. I’m trying to get back to that. I just want you to know that I see you. This is me. Trying to figure it out, being my real self. And I want to know you as well. Photo @darcybenincosa
No matter what your table looks like today, I hope you are surrounded by loved ones and friends, thanking each other for being there.

I was reminded today of how much it means to have people in your corner who speak truth into your life. People who remind you that it’s good to take risks sometimes and that it’s okay to be afraid as long as you don’t let your fear make any decisions...⠀ ⠀ ....That it’s important to speak up about things that matter to you. Or things that maybe will help others on their journey. It’s important to take a stand and be okay with not being liked by everyone because it doesn’t really matter anyway and because other people need to hear it. ⠀ ⠀ I’m so thankful for friends like @alecwarn who inspire and encourage me to always be myself, love others, and follow my dreams. 🖤 .

I’m waiting for my film from this incredible journey I went on two weeks ago...and it’s insane to me to think it was already that long ago.⠀ ⠀ Paris holds a new place in my heart, Vienna still feels like home, and Rome was a wonderful blur of two days... I’m incredibly thankful for all I have learned about my business and myself during these two weeks...⠀ ⠀ I sometimes become afraid, I feel like maybe I’ll just go back to where I was before. But I want this experience to have changed me. I want to feel like it made a difference in my life. So I’m making a commitment—things are going to be different. I’m going to break those bad habits, I’m going to push myself, and I’m going to be more confident in who I am.⠀ ⠀ Bring it on 🖤👊🏼 iPhone shot of Paris because I already miss it...
