Even in the waiting, you are free to be alive here.
You are free to take those deeper breaths that reel you in to the present moment.
-Morgan Harper Nichols
Nice place to freeze your butt off. Must have been like 2135.57 degrees below zero, worth it though. What do you think?
Sometimes you fail to notice the simple and most beautiful details that life offers. Silence can be so profound as you feel your heart thumping reaching the last steps of a summit. It’s about really soaking in those moments of immense satisfaction and achievement. Finding all of your blessings as you gaze upon scenic views that make you feel rather small in this world.
“You never know when a moment and a few sincere words can have an impact on a life.” – Zig Ziglar
Even when you don’t have the words, remember to give them your time. Always a treat to spend time with friends!! #qualitytimewithfriends

First test of the semester: ✅
Not as bad as I expected after 7 years...I think/hope...probably.
It's been nice traveling to some of the "lesser known" US national parks and being blown away by their aesthetic landscapes
Being prepared doesn’t mean you’re not adventurous. So don’t let anyone shame you or devalue your adventures because of your preparedness. Instead, wear it like it badge of honor. What’s one thing you do to prepare for an adventure? // My latest Prepared Girls Guide is live on my blog, link in bio 🙏🏼🍃⛰
🌿 Life was meant for great friends and even greater adventures...
💛 It’s crazy how life works out - we went to the same college at the same time but never crossed paths, yet years down the line we end up in the same job, finding ways of annoying each other every single day. I’m so grateful for meeting the one and only @kwellerdvil
- someone who loves yoga, hiking up mountains, dancing in the flowers, exploring the world, eating their body weight in food and taking millions of photos just as much as I do! My life would be so boring without you there making kitty noises and pulling faces from across the room.. Can we go on another adventure soon please?
A fall haiku.
Crisp, cool morning breaths
Crunchy leaves beneath my boots
Give me a s'more
I never said it would be a GOOD haiku 😄 but it sums up fall for me. How about you? Please come up with a better one 👇
Did you know that Gold Moss scrub is made with ACTUAL clay, that’s why it makes your skin feel 10/10 😍😍😍
Trailgate with REI and fellow SoCal explorers. I’ll be going back soon to summit Brent’s Peak. 8.4.18.
Making some big and exciting life decisions lately!!!!!! 🌊🌊🌊
Red Sea has been on my travel wishlist since I was a kid. I was astonished by my mother's memories of the coral reef and its colorful inhabitants. Aqaba is the only outlet that Jordan has on the waters of Red Sea and I could not have missed it. Once you dive under the surface, surrounded by a silent blue world, you experience such a flawless feeling of calm and lightness that you can't wait to take another breath and dive right in again.
Did you know an elephant’s brain reacts the same way to seeing humans as ours does to seeing puppies?
There is something so invigorating about the changing of a season 🍃🍂🍁☕️
