The Plains Hotel – Cheyenne, Wyoming

I had the pleasure of visiting The Plains Hotel earlier this week. Not only was I treated phenomenally by all the staff, I had the priveledge of meeting the current owner. This historic landmark hotel that was started in 1911 was nothing short of charming, much like the staff. 

While at The Plains, I enjoyed the best country fried steak I’ve had to date and delicious fried mushrooms with their “Boo Sauce” which is a blend of 17 ingredients I would highly recommend. 

Although my intentions originally were to have a bite to eat, chat with the staff, and check out the things I had heard about it being haunted, I ended up meeting some amazing individuals that surely made their mark on me. 

While I was at The Plains, I also met two very amazing individuals who happen to be appraisers from Antiques Roadshow. What an amazing experience! 

If you’re ever in Cheyenne, make sure to stop by The Plains – 1600 Central Ave Cheyenne, WY. 


Thank you to The Plains Hotel for your amazing hospitality and wonderful staff. 

Love&Light,

Heartbeats in the Streets

I’ve been doing a lot of soul searching lately and I have come to the realization that I was not born destined to take on life in a conventional manner. 

I truly believe my purpose is to spread positivity, help others and make an impact on the quality of life for everyone I get the pleasure of encountering. So I decided to do something about it. 

I created “Heartbeats in the Streets” a few years ago, I would ask people where their heart truly belonged and have them write it on a heart so I could photograph them. The purpose was to show people that your heart doesn’t necessarily belong to a person, it could belong in a place, a period of time, a passion, etc. 

I always wanted to travel and have people do this everywhere but for some reason I couldn’t figure out how to execute the idea. In the last 2 weeks I have travelled down to the United States, I’m currently in Cheyenne,Wyoming. When I got here the wheels slowly started to turn and I began to actualize this plan I feel I was destined to. 

I started to meet people from all walks of life, and they began to talk, so I listened. I was learning about other peoples struggles, successes, and the words that were bestowed upon me from these individuals resonated. 

I have decided to share their stories, much like my amazing guest post authors. I want to be the voice for people that don’t have an outlet or platform they feel comfortable using. I will also being volunteering in the places I visit and spreading positive vibes around the world as I go. 

So my friends, here it is. I’ve committed myself to traveling around the world to share my positive thoughts, help and inspire others, and share stories from some of whom I encounter. I want to do this selflessly which means I’ll be living in my car, staying places in exchange for any work I can assist with, photographing the journey and writing about it daily. 

I would love your support and warm wishes as I proceed to fulfil my promise. I hope y’all are as excited as I am and you will follow me on my journey. 

If you would like to contribute to this journey I have set up a GoFundMe account where every dollar makes a difference. Any donations will be used solely for the purpose of this journey to assist me with things such as gas, food, and care packages which I will be creating for the less fortunate.

Kindness & Karma 

Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. This statement speaks volumes to how I hold such high regard to my actions toward others, as it may seem very basic it’s also very true. 

I do believe karma is very real because I have seen it with my own eyes, both in positive and negative aspects. I believe that being able to assess all situations and people promptly in addition to making the conscious choice to handle them accordingly is an indubitable trait that not everyone has acquired or has the ability to. 

I say this because what you give truly is what you get. It may not be apparent at that exact moment or even apply to that specific situation, however it always comes back to you in one way or another. I firmly stand by my opinion on this matter because it not affects myself as an individual but also the others around me. The simple gesture of asking how someone’s day is going can be life altering to someone and you’d never know. Just as no one will ever be able to comprehend your situation or the internal struggle you may be battling, you won’t be able to understand anyone else’s. Some of us are very good at suppressing our thoughts and feelings, myself included. 

Behind every sweet smile there is a bitter sadness that no one can ever see or feel. 

I have to acknowledge these small gestures I have made over the years, although many times when they’re not reciprocated I will admit I have thought twice about continuing to behave in this manner. It can be disheartening to treat others with kindness only for them to treat you with disrespect or insignificance. I’ll never be able to come to a conclusion as to why some individuals feel as though they are better than others, as though we are all merely servants in their fairytale world of existence. That one is surely beyond me and to be frank, I really couldn’t be bothered to find out. 

My life has had its ups and downs, sometimes I wonder how I manage to deal with some of the crazy things that come my way, however through all the bullshit always comes a positive outcome. At times I’m curious as to what lesson I’m supposed to be grasping or why it was necessary to be given such hardships to learn from, but in the end it all comes together. 

Gratitude must be given for my ability to mask my internal challenges and persevere through life’s daily trials and tribulations. I feel very lucky to have the ability to push my personal issues aside and tackle the day in a positive manner, for that has brought me great lengths in my career thus far. Without that trait I can honestly say I don’t know where I would be but it wouldn’t be ideal whatsoever. 

It’s interesting how someone’s personality and presence alone can attract others and create opportunities. I recently encountered a situation like this, few words were spoken but the outcome was extraordinary. Who would have thought that my mere presence and a small exchange of chit chat could lead to the opportunity of a lifetime. That is exactly what happened. Thank you karma. 

Love&Light,

If you’re a bird…

I believe you can meet someone and just know they’re meant to be in your life. It’s an overwhelming feeling if you’ve never felt it but at the same time it’s remarkable. You just know that person has a place in your story. The kind of person that you love entirely before you even know them. You like all the wonderful qualities they possess, the things they don’t like about themself, the little things that should irritate you but they don’t, their cute idiocincracies make you smile and you can get lost in their words during a conversation. This is the kind of person you would do anything for without thinking twice. When you find a person like this you won’t let them go, no matter how difficult things may get. 

Distance can’t even keep me from you, time cannot keep me from you, any obstacle put in my path will be shattered, just to get to you. I could see you once every few months and still be the happiest girl on earth. Just having you in my life means the world to me and I don’t ever want that to change. You’re the only thing keeping me here and you don’t even know it. You wouldn’t be able to change my mind even if you did. I feel as though a person like this only comes around once in a lifetime and I just can’t help but wait it out to see the outcome. 
I’ve never met someone that has made such an impact on my life as you have.  I’ll never be the same, I can assure you of that. There is not a day that goes by that I don’t think of you, wonder how you are, miss you, or need you in my life. You’re that person for me. The person I can’t make life decisions without, the one I can’t seem to let go, the one I always picture in my life. 

I don’t know how to tell you this. I don’t even think there’s a combination of words that could be put together that could even begin to describe the feelings I have for you. 

I don’t know what it is about you, there’s not one specific thing that stands out, it’s just you. 

Thank you. Thank you for everything you do, you put up with more than you should, you keep me grounded, you’re happy for me when I’m happy, you let me cry when I need to and you help me realize why tears aren’t necessary when I overreact, you’re there for me unconditionally, you’re my family and there is no one that could ever take your place. 

Love&Light,

Jessica
