It’s that time of the season again where everything has pumpkin as the main ingredient. From pumpkin spice lattes to that delicious pumpkin pie from Urth Caffe (obsessed!), it’s pretty much in everything we eat these days...and will carry on into Thanksgiving. Oh lucky me cuz I love me some pumpkin!! In honor of this lovely pumpkin holiday season, I’ve decided to sit on one....or two...or the whole pumpkin patch for this post. :)

Have a safe and Happy Halloween! xx jt

RiSE Festival

A week ago I had the opportunity to attend the RiSE Lantern Festival in the Mojave Desert, Nevada. It is the U.S. first launch of floating lanterns into the sky. It has always been a dream of mine, a bucket list item to see this tradition in Thailand but I hardly wanted to travel all around the world just for the lanterns, so it was a wish come true when I found out it will be held in Nevada. Just a hop, skip and a jump away!

10,000 people with 20,000 floating lanterns....creating magic together. The initial lantern release in unison was so beautiful and moving. I wept with joy and amazement. An indescribable feeling that is equally felt by all those around me. For this moment in time, you felt like you were in heaven, amongst the angels. I know it sounds crazy but it was the most beautiful feeling and I felt really close to my mother who passed 20 years ago. This experience was very symbolic for me and to many of those who have lost their loved ones. Life is constantly moving forward but we made time stand still just for us and our angels. For that, I am grateful.

A snippet of a iMovie I made from my iPhone. It was truly a magical moment in time. Photos & videos does not do it justice. I would go again in a heartbeat. Who’s in for next year?:))) xx

Live. Love. Wander...That is the mantra.

Oh to traverse the Mojave Desert in Nevada of all places, but to witness the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen in my life thus far....RiSE Lantern Festival was truly a magical and surreal experience I’ll never forget. Next post will be all about it! xx
