to the colorful journal of Marissa Berrini, creative director, artist and curator living in Los Angeles. Launched in 2010, Marissa's online journal tells of adventures with her husband Sam, their fur kids, the occasional cocktail creation and lots of conversations with inspiring people. This blog serves to celebrate tiny victories, inspiration for those times you're stuck in a rut and bring together a community that wants more than a perfectly curated feed of eye candy. Sometimes you just got to throw it out there and see where it goes!

Quotable: Amelia Earhart

For the last 3 weeks I've been going nonstop. I challenged myself to shoot every day for fun. Thankfully this commitment isn't too hard to keep up. I'm blaming the "fun" part. Adding an element of excitement has made the goal more of a mediation than a chore. While the day sometimes flies by way too fast, I found that my iphone and 10 minute timeout comes in handy. As for today? My goal is to get behind the lens of my fujifilm instax mini with the pups as my models. I think that falls under fun, right? What I've learned from all this: do what you want to do. Act now because tomorrow isn't a guarantee and don't forget to make it fun. Quote: Amelia Earhart
