Hello there.. My name is Elise Nicole and I live in Southern California with my best friend and love, my one and only super handsome guy John, and our beyond beautiful daughter Harlow. This blog is snapshot of our daily lives, my career as an artist, and a few other things I adore! I myself am an earth adoring, art creating, teacher of yoga, traveling explorer, and most of all passionate momma. I have a 'life list' that I gaze at daily, and plan to cross off every last item I have written on it. My dog and I are completely and utterly infatuated with each other. Most days I am the epitome of a goof, and I love that about me, Harlow is just like momma, I assure you.
Except for the fact that this next wording is totally quoted from a friend, there is nothing "ish" about how self I am.. I love individuality and adore that there is no one out there just like me. So yea, I might fall off my bike trying to be cool at [you thought I was going to tell you?] years of age, but hey, at least I can laugh about it. 

When I started the blog a few years ago, I wanted a place to showcase my art. Since then I've had a major life transformation falling in love with my own unique soul, as well as fallen in love with a groovy guy and welcoming our little miss to the planet. 

Feel free to drop me a line with any questions you have at elise[at]saltwaterdiary.com, I pinky promise to write back!
