  • This is an oldie but a great memory from our morning paddle a couple weeks ago. I’ll be heading to the Great Bear Rainforest for a SUP expedition this season and can’t wait to get on my board regularly to build some strength. If you SUP, hit me up! #explorebc #exploresquamish #explorecanada

  • We rolled out of bed at 3:15am this morning. Then we drove 3 and a half hours south. These views and our future beers made it all worth it!!

  • I had the privilege of photographing my father’s wedding this weekend. I absolutely do not consider myself a photographer, but I am grateful to have had the opportunity to try. To my surprise, some of them turned out pretty good. If you want to see more, link to my website is in my bio! 🥰

  • Memorial Day used to be car camping, sipping beers and sunshine lake chilling. A very PNW Memorial Day looks something more like alpine starts and climbing steep couloirs. To each their own. Maybe my definition of fun is skewed 😂

  • Starting work in 2 weeks is going to be extremely difficult with days like today being more common. Guess I'll just need to jam pack these coming weeks with as much outdoor time as possible!

  • This post is for all you moms ❤️ my tip for you today is make time for YOU. As moms our babies obviously come first, and as a new mom trying to find that balance of being a mom and still making time for me is challenging. For me, I take at least 30 minutes every day to fill up my cup. Working out is my me time. I enjoy it and it’s a way to release my stress built up icky energy. So find something that makes you feel good and make time to do it! Even if it’s 15 minutes. I promise you will feel so much better. You can’t give 100% if you are only charged to 20%. Make time for you!

Faith used to be simple for me, at least in its definition. ⁣
⁣
I was born into Christian faith, adopted it as my own as a little girl, and everything in my life revolved around “my faith” through the beginning of my 30s. Faith, meaning, my religious/spiritual beliefs and relationship with God within these beliefs. ⁣
⁣
When I eventually parted ways with this specific expression and definition of faith, with Christianity itself and the God I’d known, it became far less concrete for me to define the word -- and yet, I knew I still possessed faith. ⁣
⁣
It’s been a gradual process, reclaiming faith for myself as the person I am now. Reclaiming the word as something that may or may not involve a Higher Power, but is alive within me all the same. I’m not sure most days whether I believe that a benevolent Being is involved in my day to day life, is watching over and caring for the world and all her inhabitants.⁣
⁣
But when I look at this definition, I recognize myself in it…⁣
⁣
faith⁣ : allegiance to duty or a person ⁣ (LOYALTY)⁣; fidelity to one's promises⁣; sincerity of intentions⁣.
⁣
I am fiercely loyal in my allegiance to caring for the Earth. My marriage is rooted in faithful fidelity, my promise of love and commitment to my husband. Even in my not-knowing what I believe, I live my life from a place of deep sincerity and intention. ⁣
⁣
I’m learning, this, too, is faith. There is room for all kinds. ⁣

  • Head out the window, eyes gazing up, daydreaming of bounding to the very tippy top of the mountains...
.
That’s how I spent my childhood summers, road tripping around Washington with my family.
.
Crazy how much of an effect those seemingly small moments can have on you 🥰

  • The broken column represents the broken column of life-that man dies before his work is completed. There are also human remains of the McMillin family in the chairs. What a beautiful and eerie memorial. #SpOoky 👻

Ok quick rant for a sec. Instagram has really been getting me down lately because my post reach has just been absolute garbage. I know everyone complains about the shitty algorithm and, at the end of the day, as long as I'm happy with my photos, that's all that should matter.. but like, it's hard dude. It's hard to not let it get to you. What's the point of having 9000 followers if your post only reaches 700? And what really gets me is that I feel like, out of those 700, I get very good engagement! So why oh why Instagram do you not open up my tags? I know I may come off as petty here but I'm just cranky and needed to vent a little. ⠀

What are you?” - Unknown .

  • Entering year 28’s last day with a full and grateful heart.  Some observations I feel are worth remembering: .
Good things are always coming.
. 
Interrupt anxiety with gratitude.
. 
It is more than worth the risk to just be messy and complicated and afraid and just show up anyways.
. 
Always call (or better yet see) the ones you love and don’t rush it for the next thing.  More time is never a guarantee.
. 
Someone else’s opinion of you is none of your business. Just be as unbridled of a “you” as you can be.
. 
And last but certainly not least:
.
“May you never overlook how powerful it can be to slow down for a moment and take a little time to breathe.”
MHN .
