// sunrise on the dunes //

I woke up at 4:00am in Death Valley to see the sunrise over the Mesquite Sand Dunes, and it was all kinds of magic.

The vibrant color that filled the sky, the stillness throughout the desert, and the brisk, morning air all helped in providing that magic on these dreamy dunes. So, we decided to go on an expedition to find the *untouched* sand - and, sure enough, we found just what we were looking for!

'May every sunrise hold more promise, and every sunset hold more peace'

Seeing the sunrise from an enchanting location such as this always wakes me up inside. To have the ability to start off my day with something so fascinating, really sets a tone for the day. A tone of possibility, eagerness, and drive - like, yes, I can do anything in the world! ::)

Fortunately, I was able to start my day off wearing this stellar sunrise get up. The backpack came from Beside-U-USA and has been 'beside me' ever since. This thing is perfect for any outing where I need more than my usual phone / wallet combo - music festivals, hikes, or even picnics at the park - because it's so lightweight and has pockets for just about anything you'd need a pocket for (and I love pockets!) The backpack paired nicely with the pastel pink details on the two-piece set by Band Of Gypsies and beautiful silver cuff by Annabel Leigh.

I hope this post inspires you to see the sunrise from somewhere new! I'm going to end with a song I feel is perfect for this message, as it opens with the following lyric: 'We've got nothing but time, to do what we like, so let's live before we die.' Keep livin' y'all!
