Moleskine sent us some of their journals and we sent them out to some of our more globe-trotting friends who could make good use of them. This is what Jessica sent back.
Follow @thelifeofjessicaa and @moleskine_worldWhen your full-time job includes traveling to new cities and countries, spending long days at the beach with your friends, and taking road trips up and down the coast, you wake up beyond thankful every day. These photographs and journal entries were mostly taken in an around Los Angeles, which I feel lucky to call my home base.
I’ve always been one to document my travels, but more in a visual way than on paper. Using my Moleskine journal has helped bring my photographs to life. Sure, you can look at a photo and remember the mood of the moment, but words help bring a sense of feeling and emotions. I hope that 50 years from now I’ll be able to look back on my photos and words and remember exactly how I was feeling, who was in my life at the time, and what my goals were during that time.

I travel pretty much every weekend. Living in LA, I have friends both up and down the coast from Santa Barbara to San Diego. I spend a lot of my weekends traveling to visit them and to get shoots done. We shot in Encinitas a few weeks ago, Palm Springs last weekend, and then on to Vegas. Most of my friends are in the content creation and digital marketing industry as well, so we all help each other get our work done. We pick a few locations every month and hit the ground running.
Of course, every day is not rainbows and butterflies (but it IS almost always sunny and 75). I am thankful for all of the positive opportunities but also for the negative ones that served as mistakes or learning experiences. They’ve served as lessons as to why I am who I am today. A wise old friend once told me, “Life is too short to be doing anything other than what you love.” Think about it and run with it.
