Go Where You Feel Happy

I feel like I am a broken record, I have been talking a lot about my love of water and being by the water. Today I decided to really target going places that make you feel happy. Sure there are lots of places that make me feel happy but the water is a special place.

I just have the say this first photo makes me feel like I am a water goddess, with the spray of water around me. Ahh I just love it! Thanks Brooklyn for the best photos <3

I am pretty sure 99% of the time I am at the water, it is freezing!! But that what I love especially when I am in beautiful fresh water or glacier fed lakes. The water energizes me and I feel so at peace. I feel happy.

This beautiful boho style dress was one my Mom bought last year, she saw it and thought I would look great in it. She really wanted me to use it for photos because she is going to hem the bottom so it fits her lol. I am so glad I did, I loved it and wearing it in the water was so pretty! It is also so comfortable!

There are many places that make me feel happy but water is something that will hold a high standing.  The only thing I would say I don’t love about the water is the mosquitos! They are really bad this year and I have had hits and misses, I was at a lake this weekend and there were none! I was so thankful because my body really doesn’t want to deal with them anymore!

    I’m a water girl too! I love the lake and swimming around. But my favorite place is 100% the mountains!! Never happier than when I’m on top of one looking at all of my surroundings.

    First this photo shoot is stunning! I wish there were locations like this in Florida. I love this concept of going where you’re happy. Especially as bloggers, I think we are so hard on ourselves so many times.
