Reminder of the amazing trips I’ve taken with my parents. After I graduated high school we spent like 3-4 weeks just driving around the South West and camping, hiking, and doing little canyons. These are the petroglyphs at Mesa Verde. Humbling reminder of our little blip on the huge map. ❀️

The #Exploress started as an idea to educate and expose others to the wide world. To let people know the world is so much bigger than [home town] or [home country]. To expose young ones to other cultures, languages, style and food! Sometimes the ideas I have overwhelm me, I don't know where to start. Sometimes I get started and don't have a plan. Sometimes I'm influenced by popular trends and stray from my original idea. But as I'm reminded by so many, dreams come true...when you let them. Put forth the effort and stay true to the dream/goal. Keep asking, keep seeking, keep doing! Stay encouraged my friends. - Nina, The Exploress

One of my favorite things to do during the holidays is explore every Christmas market I possibly can πŸŽ„ While we were in Scottsdale, we were able to check out Old Town in all it's magical holiday glory, and it did not disappoint. What else didn't disappoint? These booties that were perfect for exploring the market. Who says you can't wear white after labor day? Not me, that's who! πŸŽ…πŸΌπŸ€ΆπŸΌ #rulebreaker #myDSW #ad @liketoknow.it #liketkit http://liketk.it/2tPvI @dswshoelovers

I love collaborating with talented people to create art! This was a set I did with my friend @mplsbutter. We did this using projection and multiple shots of motion. The image is not superimposed with Photoshop, it was projected on the model as she moved. The inspiration for this collection, my S/S 2017 "Harmonic Convergence" collection, is Avatar the Last Airbender and Legend of Korra. Each image evokes a different element. This is air.

One of my favorite traditions growing up was cutting down our Christmas tree. We’d all head out, bundled up and often treading through snow, sipping cocoa, listening to Christmas music. The last 2 years I got to carry on that tradition with my kids and it was an incredible experience. This year, the thermostat read 81degrees, we drove around the corner to the β€˜freshly cut’ tree lot and loaded up a big 10footer. And I realized it’s not the cutting of the tree that mattered. Or the snow or cocoa. It’s being with family and creating excitement around a special experience. What are your favorite holiday traditions?

This is my Lucca.

He's the little man who single-handedly jumpstarted my heart and insisted on me learning how to care for myself and return to my own hidden wholeness.

When I became a mom, I wasn't ready.

I was 26 and my vision for life was narrow-- All I would picture was running away to Italy. It was a frequent fantasy. Escape and avoidance was my M.O.

I liked boys who made me feel special inside their egos. Extraordinary highs at the cost of low low lows.

Then I had a dream and a little voice said, "I choose you." Before I took a pregnancy test I knew I was pregnant. When a pregnancy test confirmed it, I had a panic attack and wailed like a crazy person in the parking lot of a strip mall in Albuquerque.

I cried for a lot of reasons:
The fear
The shame
Most of all, the loss of my identity and the end of the game I was playing.

I could no longer avoid my own depths or the healing those depths needed.

I had to learn how to love myself and accept every part of me.
I had to create a new inner ecology within.

It was one thing to live with my own self-destructive choices, but it was unthinkable to make someone else suffer those same consequences.

My body had acclimated to cruelness, but his was new and just forming.

So I did the most painful thing and I forgave all those who hurt me and I forgave myself.

I accepted everyone is everything. No Good vs Bad.

No more nursing on memories of humiliation. No more wickedness within. No more being comforted by the weight of sadness.

My baby was a boundary.
I learned what to say no to for his sake.

And in those difficult No's (habits are hard to break) I found my most real and alive YESes.

Yes to Wholeness no matter what the cost.
Yes to Desire and living a life unbound by circumstance.
Yes to my body being a refuge place for myself and my children.
Yes to the crazy belief in redemption and choosing to feel safe in the Mystery of it all instead of anything else.
Yes to Love and more love.

We all have portals back home. They feel like black holes that will annihilate you. But they won't-they'll only dissolve what isn't light and restore you to πŸ’—
