Happy Friday!!!! I don’t know about you, but I want to head over to the Sunriver Lodge and have a nice relaxing weekend. 💙❄️
Only 12 days until Christmas!!! Bring on the drummers, swans, rings and the partridge in a pear tree!!! ❤️💚
Add little pine cones to the list of cutest things I’ve ever seen!! 💚
TLC told us not to, but we did anyway.
Compassion removes the walls of mistrust and builds bridges of hope, trust and beliefs. 💙
Every day with you is special, but today I’m incredibly thankful to be celebrating another year of life of you. Happy birthday b💕
Yesterday my husband and I announced something very special to our family and friends...I feel it is only appropriate that you all know too!! Thank you for all the love and support! This will truly be our greatest adventure yet!! 💚
We went on a lovely hike with my parents today! It was rainy but still fun. The best part is warming up together during our break in a restaurant, because dogs are allowed inside here in Germany!
Jump for Joy Everyone!!! It’s Friday!!!!! 💙❄️💙❄️💙❄️💙
We arrived in Germany! First walk with typical grey winter weather. But it felt so good to move a little after the long flight! #nobadweatherjustbadclothes
Chilly mornings and beautiful skies 💙
Can’t go ice skating, but this frozen river is a sight to see. 💙❄️💙

Dreaming of Tahoe Sunsets right now...
Frozen cattails on the river 💙❄️
City adventures today! We had a fun walk through Golden Gate Park #urbanhiking
Let our mini-vacation weekend begin 💙
I am sure by now everyone has heard about the intense earthquake that happened here in Alaska this morning. We were close enough to the epicenter that we experienced intensity of the earth shaking but far enough away we did not get the damage Anchorage received. We are so thankful our friends and family are safe but are praying for everyone else effected. .

Friday, I seriously needed you 💙
Let’s go on an adventure 💙
The streams are flowing again! This makes me so happy! And we saw the first green grass sprouting again which means soon California will trade its golden dry hills against lush green. (Picture from our hike at the coast last weekend)
Same trail but different season 🍂 each bend around the canyon looked like Narnia. 🌿
A stormy day at the coast 💙 Rain or shine we will have fun!!
Not your average summit 🙆🏼♀️💁🏼♀️🌬☁️ Saturday night we went to a show, I slept for two hours and then we decided to do everyone’s least favorite peak. Cooler weather and with no bugs makes it way more enjoyable. 17.6 miles and finally had a chance to eat lunch at the cafe. 10/10 will go again because I want to go on the zipline that they padlocked when they heard me yell out “zipline!”
We watched some beautiful sunsets the last few days!
Walking around Oregon State over the weekend. The campus is still so beautiful 🍁🍂
That’s what we came for! Waking up to ocean view(and sound) and having a walk at beach first thing in the morning and last at night.
Delray Beach this morning, under a rosy golden sky. As my dad and I pulled up to the beach at 635 am, a deep electric pink light flashed down the center of the the sky. Something jumped inside me as we both realized this was going to be a special sunrise (its a long tradition to watch sunrises in my family). As we made our way down the path of mangroves, the sky began to change a little each passing minute. It was as if the maker of the whole universe took a paintbrush and began to wash the sky with vibrant living color that my eyes were seeing for the first time (and I've seen many sunrises around this world). The whole earth turned hues of gold-even the air-and you either wanted to sit and watch in amazement, or run like crazy on the metallic orange and pink sand. It felt as though, if you were to jump into the ocean, that heaven was waiting on the other side. It reminded me of how every day God beckons us all in so many different ways. That we all have something inside us that yearns for something greater than ourselves. Sometimes its just a whisper, but this morning was an especially, loud reminder.
First stop on our tour: watching elephant seals!
Isn’t nature amazing!?! 💙❄️
How amazing is this? It was 2°F (-17°C) here this morning and I shot some frozen bubbles. This is a real time video of one of them completely freezing in under 60 seconds.

Come on in, we’re going camping! We’re joining #vanlife
for the weekend and will be off the grid until Sunday!
It's a beach day ☀️ Hope everyone is enjoying black Friday whether you are getting some fresh air in the great outdoors or the Walmart parking lot 😂 #optoutside
Happy Thanksgiving! I’m thankful for these two in my life! They always make me laugh and enjoy being outdoors as much as I do! Hiking without them wouldn’t be the same! ❤️
I know it may be cheesy, but this man right here is what I am the most thankful for. He has taught me so many things over the past 8+ years that have forever changed me for the better.
He is the brilliant, kind, puts everyone else’s needs before his own, is the most passionate and loving father, and shows me every day that he loves me. Of course we have the moments that every marriage has where you are frustrated and annoyed, but the amazing moments outweigh those 100 to 1.
I love you my sweet and caring husband. Thank you for giving me this fantastic life and a family that I love so dearly.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!! ❤️🍂🧡.

Everyone smiles in the same language,
Happiness knows no frontiers, no age.
No difference thar makes us feel apart
if a smile can win even a broken heart.
Ana Claudia Antunes, A-Z of Happiness
Close your eyes and turn your face into the wind.
Feel it sweep along your skin in an invisible ocean of exultation.
Suddenly, you know you are alive. ✨

This is me. School Counselor by day, photographer in the evening (and on most weekends). 💛 I never thought in a million years that I would have my own business in something I loved so much. Whether it be landscape or portrait, I always get those jitters when I look into the camera and have the perfect shot lined up. My normal job gives me so much satisfaction, but photography really balances out it all out. .
Remember to do things that make you happy...you don’t need to quit your job necessarily but make sure you take some time to do the things you really enjoy, and hey, it might turn into another career! 😉💛 .

Last little hike before we head home! Taking dead breaths of fresh air. After over a week of breathing unhealthy air, we will never ever take fresh air for granted!
After a week of staying inside we had a beautiful day in Tahoe and a hike with great views! I hope your Saturday was as good as ours!
It feels so good to be outside and be able to breath again! We decided to go to Tahoe for the weekend to escape the bad air quality of the Bay Area. It’s also a nice excuse to drive up there. 😉
