All About Emily


This post is about me. Emily. Co-founder of Lua Tees, wannabe writer, and lover of the outdoors.  

I am a 23-year-old living in Northern Utah with the love of my life, Peyton. We have been married for two years. One of the things that brought us together was our mutual love for nature. While Peyton tends to be more of a mountain climber- using the outdoors to conquer great things and pushing himself to get from point A to point B- I am a lot more relaxed when it comes to nature. I find it easy to be happy just walking with no destination. I love simply being outside, whether that is hiking, backpacking, camping, or just picnicking. We created Lua Tees together, hoping to share each of our unique connections and love for the outdoors in a creative way. Our goal as a company is to ignite the adventurous spirit of others and inspire people to get outside. 

Starting Lua Tees has been a great adventure. As I have wedged myself deeper into the outdoor community and met some amazing people, I decided I wanted more.  Over the last couple of months, I have reached out to awesome, outdoorsy people. Some of which were kind enough to let me interview them. One reason this blog came about was to share their stories with you. As I to continue to interview and get to know great people I hope to help you get to know them as well.  

But that isn’t all. In my effort to spend more time outside and to try new things, you, the reader, will be privileged to read about all of my amazing outdoor adventures. Okay, well maybe they will be amazing. And hopefully, you will at least kind of enjoy reading about them. My goal is for you to fall in love with the outdoors as I have, and for you to teach me to fall in love with the outdoors as you have. Everyone’s experience is different. Together, we can give and gain new perspectives.  

All I ask of you is that you are patient with me as I learn. I am not coming into this as an expert by any means. Please follow along with my journey as I learn to write, build a website, and run a t-shirt company.
