My first summer in Montana I only saw double rainbows. Every time I saw one rainbow, there was another standing by. I'd never seen two at a time before. It felt like a double promise, a reassurance that all would be well, better than I could ever imagine.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Believing in the possibility that my life could reach to and beyond my dreams has been a long journey. It ebbs and flows. Ebbs when circumstances I thought were promising turn out differently than I'd hoped. Flows when I am surprised by things lining up when I thought they couldn't. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What I know now is that being with the emotions that arise in each situation is really the key to getting what I want -- a sense of peace and determination to move forward and be still. This peace does not come because things work out. It comes because I choose to be with what it, whether or not I condone it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Montana has reminded me that I find this peace most often in nature. In view of rainbows, with the pines dripping the past hours rain on my shoulders, hearing a cacophony of bird songs over the sometimes shrill fixation my mind has on trying to solve something.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Join me (Andrea Catherine @groundedhere ) and my dear friend Sara Hughes-Zabawa @beinginbalancewellness for our second annual Fearless Self-Love Retreat in October. We will walk along side you in nature to find that place where you feel truly at home in your heart.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #retreat #montanaretreat #natureretreat #retreatvacation #montanavacation @dancingspiritranch #yogayretreat #brenebrownworkshop #daringway @brenebrown #montanalove #distinctlymontana #doublerainbow #nature #peace #determination
Finished up our last evening in Big Sky with a double rainbow right over our house and a close encounter with a black bear. It literally doesn’t get more Montana than that. #rainbow #doublerainbow #blackbear #montana #mt #visitmontana #bigsky #visitbigsky #montanalove #montanagrams #montanamoment
Could not resist posting tonight’s sunset! #montanalove #rockymountainsunset
Cherry season is just starting in the Flathead region. We’ve already picked 25 pounds of cherries and anticipate going back for more in a few days. 🍒
@getwildkelsey ・・・ I'm so grateful for this body. For these lungs that allow me to breath and these legs to carry me to gorgeous and remote places. Our backpacking route was very secluded; we passed less than 10 people a day and had the backcountry sites and alpine lakes basically to ourselves. An unreal and once in a lifetime experience that I'll forever be grateful for. ____________________________________________________________ #GlacierNPS #exploreGlacier #montana #bigskycountry #montanalife #montanamoment #visitmt #visitmontana #socality #montanalove #lastbestplace #montanagram #nationalparks   #nationalparkservice #nationalparkusa #findyourpark #exploretocreate #passionpassport #socalitymontana #ig_naturelovers #nps #fypyes #neverstopexploring #ourplanetdaily   #instatravel #instapassport #igtravel 🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲
Backyard wedding kind of day in Montana! #montanalove #roomateadventures #momroomies
On the 4th of July, after leaving the dense forest to crest this ridge I saw Missoula, the Mission Mountains and the core of the Bitterroot Mountains from a perspective I had never seen it all from before. I could also see and hear fireworks from numerous areas across the sky, and it was truly incredible to witness it all from such a wild and remote place; a place only 20 miles from city limits (as the crow flies) where I saw nothing but a bunch of bear sign. It was in that moment I realized, once again, how much I freakin love this place and how lucky I am to call this place home ❤ P.s. I'll be posting a bunch more pictures from here soon 😊
Goodnight, Montana. Goodnight.
completely break with all forms of habit. do things you wouldn't normally do. talk to people you wouldn't normally talk to. go places you wouldn't normally go. the world exist outside of your comfort zone.
A week ago: When we pulled up to the Izaak Walton Inn it was such a feast for the eyes. The lodge was rustic and nice & the restaurant had delicious food. It was really hot in the room so we slept with the windows open and got to hear the trains right outside. . . . . #montanamoment #montanalife #montanalove #bigskycountry #montanagram #visitmontana #montanasummer #montanaliving #406life #406 #mymontana #exploremontana #ilovemontana #smalltownlife #smalltownliving #smalltownusa #smalltowncharm #godcountryhorses #helenamt #helenamontana #thankyoumontana #hellomontana #onlyinmontana #montanabound #lovemonta #lifeinmontana #fourohsix #lastbestplace #smalltownmontana #montanahome

I picked up a random piece of scrap wood to make a sign. How did it know my Montana roots!?! Seriously! #saturdayrandomness #ilumt #montanalove

I love traveling! One of the best parts is trying local food! We hit the jackpot at a family restaurant in Seeley Lake. Fresh fish sandwich with homemade tomato soup followed by huckleberry pie & huckleberry ice cream!!! #popsplacerestaurant #seeleylake #seeleylakemontana #montana #montanalove #foodie #travelforfood #fortheloveoffood #eatmywaythroughlife #foodiesofinstagram #montanalove #exploremontana #visitmontana

I’ve got my mind on the mountains and the mountains on my mind. Here’s our original Montana Mountains trucker hat in Glacier National Park.⠀ ⠀ .⠀ #glacier #glacierpark #glaciernationalpark #glaciernps #gnp #glaciercountry #Montana #bigskycountry #406 #montanalove #explore #adventure #gooutside #hike #thegoodtimestate #montanashirtco #glacier_national_park #montanamoment #visitmt #wanderlust
Solid scrap between #Bossman & #MontanaLove on #ShoBox . Based on the controversial decision in the Mattice-Hamazaryna bout... Love was fortunate to get out of Sloan without a loss. Neither #prospect really suffers a setback though... but Sims Jr's consistent effort doesn't go unnoticed, especially in light of the Chinea loss. Photo by Rosie Cohe/@showtimeboxing

Sunrise above the clouds.
I've had this sign sitting around forever and it never felt quite "done". Added the hand lettered "home" and it looks so cute! 💕#handlettering #montanamoment #rusticdecor
Petrichor: the smell of the earth after rain. #optoutsideMT #mymontanasummer #MontanaLove #MontanaMoment
We weren't about to let some Montana mosquitoes ruin this gorgeous scenery
I have many happy places. Sipping a @rockfordcoffee latte on Main Street in Bozeman is one of them.
Paradise Valley, Mt, where we’re staying completely off-grid in the most beautiful nature surrounded by wildlife 🌈 Btw this is also where @johnmayer lives 😉 #paradisevalley #montana #montanalove #montanasummer #traveller #wanderlust #offgrid #emigrant #offgridtravelling #naturelover #bliss #amazed #clearskies
@chrisbyrnephotography ・・・ We just wrapped up a great workshop in Glacier National Park with an eager group of wonderful students! I created this image before it started and I can’t wait to share more from this trip. We had some spectacular conditions in some spots if you checked out some of my stories. 2019 Registrations will be opening soon! ____________________________________________________________ #GlacierNPS #exploreGlacier #montana #bigskycountry #montanalife #montanamoment #visitmt #visitmontana #socality #montanalove #lastbestplace #montanagram #nationalparks   #nationalparkservice #nationalparkusa #findyourpark #exploretocreate #passionpassport #socalitymontana #ig_naturelovers #nps #fypyes #neverstopexploring #ourplanetdaily   #instatravel #instapassport #igtravel 🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲

Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.
