I am 100% obsessed with winter. More precisely, the snow. We went up to shoot a photoshoot in Forest Falls, CA recently and it was the first snowfall I witnessed this year and whenever I get close to snow, I freak out. I don't know what it is but something deep in my soul rejoices and I let out this ridiculous shriek like a 5 year old child. There's something about the beautiful combination of mountains, trees and snow that creates complete peace. And I realized it's so crucial to always find time to visit your sanctuary. That is, the place you can escape distraction, escape the routine, escape any stress, and acknowledge God in all of His glory. A sanctuary is built to create an atmosphere of refuge, peace and a sense of sacredness devoted to God. It is here where you gain clarity, strength, healing, love, and purpose. My sanctuary without a doubt is being out in the ocean, and the snow. Where's yours? Let me know!
