One of my favs.

The greatness of an egg.

posted on: Wednesday, February 27, 2013

Take a sec and think about eggs. Bear with me. I was in the kitchen, the lighting was right, and the bowl was red. At first glance, they didn’t seem complex. I pulled out my camera. The eggs looked pure and simple. I thought about their purpose. (Deep- considering it’s an egg, I know).  I realized how much “unopened opportunity” these eggs are full of. To reach full potential, the eggs needed to be cracked open and tested out. If an egg is never opened, it will eventually be wasted. If it is opened, it can be used to create greatness. For an egg, greatness could mean scrambled, hard-boiled, fried, or poached. If the egg was fancy, greatness could mean a divine macaroon, spinach quiche, or a custard pie. If the egg was meant to be sweet, he can become a moist cake, gooey brownies, or a dozen chewy chocolate chip cookies. If the egg has a naughty side, greatness may be a deviled egg.  No matter the form, the egg should not be wasted. I related this to humans. We all have talents and unlimited potential within us. If we don’t explore what we can do or who we can become, we will never achieve greatness. I challenge whoever is reading this to do something great. Whatever you are meant to become, become it. Crack open your shell, and live up to your potential. Okay, I am getting off my soapbox now. Thanks ya’ll.  

Farmer's market obsession

Confession: I have a major obsession with farmer’s markets. In the city I grew up in, every Saturday all year long, Main Street held a farmer’s market with local produce, flowers, bakery, and more. I became an addict. They make me so happy. I have come to realize that they are one of my favorite things in the entire world.

graffiti and confetti

Does anyone enjoy graffiti as much as I do? Whenever I see a piece of art like this, I can’t help but think about the story behind it. It’s so cool to me that there are adventurous people out there who share their work with the less talented folks. I thought graffiti and confetti made a happy combo for this photo- as well as one of my best friends! 

I left my heart in San Francisco! Jk, I still have it.

Hola! Welcome to the first post. Above is a picture of me (Carlee) and my babe of a husband (Danny). We got married in June of 2012, and I am completely head over heels. We were both born and raised in the bay area, and met at school in Utah. He is a graphic designer and has a mind of an entrepreneur.

Soccer has always been my passion. I recently finished my 4th year as an NCAA collegiate athlete. I am in the process of finding other hobbies and passions in life. I have always loved fashion, photography, creating videos, cooking, health and fitness, and attempting to be artsy. I am hoping that this blog will inspire whoever reads it as well as help me discover how I can contribute to all the beauty in this world. Feel free to leave comments and be a part of the journey!
