Before and after! My dreary powder room was in much need of a redo but I didn’t want to pick out new tile. It has been several years that I have known I needed to do something. I kept going with a light paint thinking that it would lighten the room but that didn’t work. The solution was an eye catching wallpaper with a bold blue and just the smallest hint of green in the dragonfly to bring in the handmade tile border! Even though the background is a deep blue white in the dragonflies brighten the whole room. SWIPE◀️◀️ I’m happy with this quick update and my paperhanger , Joe, was fantastic!

There are 39 public school districts in Morris County. MLHS is one of two schools that does not have Martin Luther King Jr. Day off.
As a high school with a black population that you can count on your fingers, this doesn’t come as a surprise to most. However, after the many sacrifices the black community has made in the name of equality, it’s disheartening to see that MLK Day is the first holiday Mountain Lakes is willing to ignore.
Mountain Lakes has President’s Day off, Veteran’s Day too. Why is it that the one holiday devoted to the world’s most influential Civil Rights leader is swept under the rug?
On account of the fact that school will continue today, one can only hope that teachers will take it upon themselves to reinforce the significance of the Civil Rights Movement. However, this often is not the case. Last year, many students could only remember Martin Luther King Jr.’s memory being carried out through a community art project and nothing more.
Mountain Lakes’ BOE seems to pride itself on its attentiveness to diversity and inclusivity, but by failing to give ML students the opportunity to recognize appreciate Dr. King’s legacy, the Board contradicts itself.

Can’t believe this amazing day has come and gone as quick as it did. I married this beautiful woman; the love of my life and my best friend. What a wonderful group of family and friends that celebrated these special moments with us. We loved sharing these unforgettable memories with those who mean the most. Thank you to those who’ve played an integral part in our day and to all those whom have traveled far, those who’ve helped put all this together and those whom came out to see us. We will never forget these memories and will continue to reflect on just how much this meant to us. I love you, Briana, my wife! This is just the beginning, the best is yet to come! #teamthomson

Break on through to the other side! 2018 was a tough year, in all honesty, you could say it beat the absolute shit out of me. But I found the edge and came back feeling awakened. I couldn’t be more stoked to turn the page, not because I want to forget this year, but because 2019 is a complete blank canvas of opportunity and possibility. So to that I say LET’S FUCKING GOOO!!!!
First week of my freshman year at CU, I sat on a cactus. I very literally sat down on a cactus and had spines all over my tushy. Michelle, who I met that day, spent hours taking out every individual spine from my bare ass. Since then, we have become roommates, best friends, wives, and much much more. I found my soulmate at CU Boulder, her name is Michelle and today she turns 21. I love you, my sweet turmeric muffin.
I’M BACK BETCHES- haven’t posted any of my food in awhile because I’ve been so busy with life at school + finals:/ buttttt, here’s one of the first meals I made while home for winter break😍 kept it super simple this AM with fresh avo on a slice of toasted rye bread topped with a scrambled egg and @traderjoes ebb seasoning.. ugh so easy yet so delicious #healthyfatsarecool
Thanksgiving. Break was awesome and I’m really sorry I couldn’t come to Cali but winter break is two weeks away sowegoodgoodgood. Just some pics of me being a dork and a really cool video of ice breaking on ice.
Flew back to NJ this weekend to spend time with my family and reset before I start making up for lost travel time. To my surprise, I was greeted with perfect early season Smigelski Snow Bowl conditions. A storm this early in the season would have had myself, my brother, and all my friends around town STOKED. We’d drop in from here and build kickers/features throughout the front yard. My dad built us a small hockey rink behind the deck, and the woods behind that we’d call the “backcountry.” I know I’ve changed a lot over the years, but when I really think about it, maybe not all that much. If my leg was in good enough shape.. I probably would have been doing the exact same things.
It’s like I’m seeing autumn for the first time. Last year during this time I begged my mom to walk around the yard and send me pictures of the changing leaves. It was so cute. She got all artistic and sent me pics. I remember looking at them as an afternoon sun-shower passed through, welling up with emotion. All of the sudden, my soul was craving to connect with the wisdom of the seasons, which I didn’t fully experience on Maui for 3 years (NOT COMPLAINING, lol). I never understood the fall season craze before. You know, the pumpkinspice lattes and things that make it ppls fav season. Honestly, I must’ve been blind to this beauty. The world is changing technicolor right before my eyes like nothing I’ve ever seen. Except, I have seen this before. Nothing too drastic has changed about fall being fall. But I’ve changed; drastically. My capacity to perceive beauty, expanded. I’ve delved deep into the dark corners of my soul, “digging the well”, and in direct proportion I am able to house more light and beauty. Also, Maui did it. She was so beautiful that she expanded my edges for beauty and everywhere I went thereafter, even a city subway, I was in the same amount of awe as I was when I was basking in her mountains, oceans, rainbow skies.
During my last visit home, I remember petting Pepper and being able to feel her chakras for the first time. The moment I touched her, I was taken aback by the depth and beauty of her energy field; ::woah::, wondering how I never felt *this* before. Her field spoke to me in a “new language”, that must’ve existed before but I wasn’t tuned into. She told precisely me how she wished to be touched, and I put my hand on her 💓 chakra and it felt exactly like butterfly🦋kisses from heaven. Oh, my heavens. A new world. There’s nothing like coming back to a familiar place, season, etc and noticing how different it feels, how much more depth&beauty exists that must’ve been there before but wasn’t recognized, to remind us how much we’ve grown. To remind us of the depth that’s been carved within. To remind us how much closer to our own Source we’ve gravitated. The capacity to perceive beauty is just that- a gravitating closer to our Source,⬇️
