“The mountains are calling- and I’d like to go but I can’t see them due to the smoke from the increase in wildfire activity in the Pacific Northwest that can be correlated to climate change and the Forest Services long standing policy on wanting to eliminate natural wildfires (good idea in theory)that might have burned small but now have led to large areas with overgrowth that burn too hot and very quickly” -John Muir, if he had lived now

What up, it’s me, the 4th sister
I’ll have a slice of the volcanic humble pie with a side of can’t walk for 3 days 📐
I'm having flash forwards of our relationship when he's a teenager. At least I he's still small enough for me to beat him up 😉
Healthy Pizza is my jam 🍕
•Flat Out Thin crust pizza crust

•Toppings (spinach, peppers, onions, and chicken breast are what I use)
•Bake for 6 minutes and DONE!
You don’t always have to eat salads when you’re in a meal plan! 😍😝 Also do you think I can convince my mom to buy me new plates? I’m obsessed 🍽

We’re not in the Shire anymore, Bilbo! 😜
The fall semester is starting up soon, and while that PhD grind is still going strong with some dissertation deadlines fast approaching, at least I’m OUT of the #hobbithole
Sometimes the smallest change can make a DRASTIC difference. 🌱 Like deciding to grow a health + wellness #sidehustle
from my phone in my spare pockets of time. A year later, I’ve transformed my life — from my heart to my health to my home.
And now I get to finish this whole #gradschool
thing in an office of MY design.
If I can do this, you can, too. 🤙🏻🖤🔥

The haze adding an extra set of layers on the peaks above the middle fork.
One day ill get better at writing up stories for my photos. Its hard without being overdramatic which in my opinion is a problem for a lot of photographers. I think there is way too much over dramatization in the writing or explanation on simple photos.
No shortage of vitamin SEA out here!
Schedule your appointment now!
Just click the link in the bio to pick the day and time!
Starlight canoeing in the middle of the Cascades. The boat moved too much for me to shoot what was perhaps the brightest and clearest Milky Way I have ever seen, but that’s probably a good thing. A photo wouldn’t feel as real as the memory. 🌌
be a tree ~ be still, stay grounded, soak up the sun, drink lots of water, and enjoy the view🌲
Just took an impromptu trip down to #bowhillblueberries
. ❤️ We didn’t stay long (because of all the smoke) but we did manage to pick nearly 5 lbs of organic berries between the 4 of us. See more over in stories. Now I’m feeling inspired to make something sweet! I’ll be sharing more from our visit along with a new recipe on posh soon. Also, my look of the day is linked with. Happy Monday! ✨ http://liketk.it/2x2dQ #liketkit @liketoknow.it
As I sit here contracting irregularly for the last 4 hours...much like I have for the last 5 days on and off...I’m filled with wonderment. What will you look like? Who will you grow in to? When will you decide to come!? I can’t wait to smell your sweet newborn smell, listen to you little coos, watch you meet your big brother and sister. Everyday feels a little like Christmas Eve does when your a little kid...filled with anticipation and excitement. 💗
It’s a magical special time for any mommy. And I’m cherishing it...Soaking it all up. Time moves SO fast I know you’ll be here if I blink and all this will become a memory as we dive into life with you.
I love being a mommy.
It’s worth every bit of hard.

There is no finish line when it comes to fitness. Because once you hit that goal weight, goal pant size or feeling of healthy... then there is maintaining or setting new goals and reaching even farther than you thought possible in the beginning💕 ⠀
When I first started it was all about losing the extra weight I was carrying around my waist. Then I hit that goal (see pic on right 👏) If I had just stopped when I hit that goal, you know what would have happened??? I would have gained it all back! ⠀
Instead, I set a new goal and started lifting weights. The scale went back up a bit but I still feel as healthy (or even healthier 😉) as I did the day I took that skinny picture. This is mindset, a commitment to always staying teachable, community and falling in love with the process rather than pinning it all on the end result 👍 ⠀
Don’t wait for another Monday! Just start where you are now and never give up on yourself 😊
Played tourist today in the smoke!
Who’s going out for the 2 day MA12 shrimp opener this week? I’m not going to make it out, but I’m excited to see how everyone does. 📷 credit: @dbobby23
What is something you are going to try to do before the summer ends? I want to go on a few more trips and may be even go paragliding. Even though the sky was full of smoke from the fires around us, we still made it a great trip. Don’t let one bad thing ruin it all for you. You can still find ways to bring happiness and joy into your life. ❤️❤️. So go out there and make the last few weeks of summer the best one yet.
The hike out to Cape Alava/Ozette Beach is beautiful.
When you end up in just the right place, at just the right time.
This is my brother Sam and his pet waterfall.
All I can say is yesterday's sunset was SO INCREDIBLE!! 😳 Every time I ask God to show up with those beautiful sunsets... WOW he does not disappoint! 😍💛
