This Cinco de Mayo is definitely one for the books! We were on our way to the airport when I got a notification letting me know Instagram had liked my photo followed by a notification that someone had mentioned me in a post. I couldn’t believe my eyes. Out of hundreds and hundreds of photos Instagram had chosen my photo for their post on the history of Cinco de Mayo. I have received love and support from all around the world and it has been such a roller coaster of emotions from surprised to excited to HAPPY. Yup, extremely happy. Somebody pinch me because I still can’t believe it!

The Flower Fields

I finally got the chance to cross this trip off my bucket list. There are flowers as far as your eyes can see. Truly amazing. I felt like I was in the flower scene in the movie Big Fish. I can’t wait to go back next year!

out of order

It has been so long since the last time I blogged. My camera is currently out of order and hopefully getting repaired soon! It’s part of the reason why it’s been so quiet around here. This year has been flying by, in a couple of weeks it will be Thanksgiving. crazy! I think it’s time to blog again, even if it means posting photos from my phone.. EC is back in business!

Slow and Steady


I am a perfectionist. I didn’t realize that until I started blogging. I began putting pressure on myself in figuring out what I wanted to blog about, what direction I wanted to take with this new project. I would stop myself from blogging until I figured what I wanted to do and often get writer’s block until today. I saw this on my way to a coffee shop and it stop me in my tracks. It was just the message that I needed. I always put things until the next day hoping I’ll have the answers then but there truly is no better time than today. I’ve decided to let this blog grow, slow and steady. No pressures to be like others. Let this place be my cloud 9 where I get to be me, myself and I. ♥

Adventure is out there!

Spent Christmas at Big Bear City and when we arrived there I found this Senior Wilderness Explorer sticker from the Redwood Creek Challenge Trail at California Adventure and I felt like it was a sign. UP is one of my favorite movies and I always feel so inspired every time I watch it. I have a feeling lots of fun adventures are in store in the upcoming new year, so excited!



The Music House

My job at the music school is a blessing for which I am very thankful for. I was hired to be Creative. I get to decorate for special occasions and help plan fun activities for the students. I get the chance to work with friends and we have a blast! I learn something new about music every time I’m there. And best of all, I hear music all day! It’s something magical when you’re walking through the halls and you hear songs that you love. Take today for example, a song from UP was being played on the piano and I couldn’t help but smile. It was amazing hearing a song from one of my favorite movies. This job makes me happy and I can’t wait to see what new adventures lie ahead at the music house. I’m one lucky girl.

stay gold.

Took my first trip to Las Vegas in April and I’m finally getting around to making a mini book. It was a fun weekend trip and I tried to see as much as I could but it was too HOT to be out for too long. Thank you AC for keeping us cool. My favorite part of the drive there was seeing stars in the night sky. You don’t get to see many when you live in the city but when youre in the middle of nowhere, they shine bright. I wanted to take a photo of them but too hard in a moving car lol I can’t wait to take another road trip!



On cloud*9

Today a new adventure begins!
