An Escape to the Deserts of Southern California
a collaboration with Zappos x Blundstone
It was a whirlwind of a week for me between work, meetings, the Adobe MAX conference, and a fun head cold. I happened to be in southern California last week and decided to meet up with some friends of mine in between all the meetings. We decided to get out of the city for a little fresh air.
My friend, York Galland, kindly invited Kelly, Christina and I to join him and his beautiful daughter, Olive on a heli adventure to the desert. We took off in the early afternoon, and watched the commuter traffic build up below us. It was the first time I had observed traffic and found myself smiling, thinking how beautiful it looked from afar. It's all about perspective, I suppose.
As we glided over the cityscape, I was thinking about my project with Blundstone. The goal of our collaboration and the mission of the brand is to get outside, explore, and share #HowIRoam in my favorite boots. I grabbed them on this trip thinking they would be perfect for the rugged landscapes we were promised to visit, and I'm SO glad that I did. I was able to romp around the giant rocks we found and explore the lava fields nearby without worrying about the comfort and security of my feet.
The day was exactly what we all needed. It was a little breath of fresh air; a moment of quiet. I am thankful for good friends and for the opportunity to live in a country so diverse in landscape, people and perspectives.
I can't wait to get back out there.
