Happy #NationalSelfieDay from this past weekend celebrating the graduation of my best friend @nikkielaina πŸ€³πŸ‘―πŸΏοΈοΈ


My workplace makes cool real-time prints during #NatGeoFest to showcase the ~connections~ of our ideas and how we can bring them together to make the world a better place #planetorplastic #natgeo #nationalgeographic


I'm welcoming color back in to my feed now that my black and white assignment is over. What better color than to start back with than green?


Not forgetting to share a recent #foundshoppingdecisions spotted with @merknaak, @kaitlyndolanphoto & @santiagozurbiafloresotero


This weekend marks the first of many trips one of my dearest, oldest (13 years this summer) best friends made to see me in DC. A weekend full of bangin' food, dancing, movies, only some drinks, being attacked by escalators and broken flip-flops, nerdin' out over American History, much sunscreen and plenty, plenty, plenty hearty laughter. I wouldn't be who I am without Nikki's friendship and I cherish the time we get to spend together dearly. #itAINTme #mdw #mdw2018 #bestfriend #acreativedc #igdc

This pretty, evil little freak made a friend yesterday. Wanderer did, too 😻


Now that the warm weather is back, take me back to an ocean. Any ocean. Just take me back. Really, any body of water will do.


Welcome to me starting to share photos from the Pacific Ocean. This is from the first time I felt the other coast's ocean


Everyone wish this sweet fish a happy birthday today! Although he can't spend the day in his happiest place, underwater, I'll be damned if I can't embarrass him with a birthday insta post. Feliz cumpleaΓ±os y te amo mi dulce βœ¨πŸ¦ˆπŸ πŸ™πŸ³πŸπŸŽ‚
