Spent the day with my childhood friend. We found our inner child, through yoga, mediation and child play. Jetty island is beautiful, like no other. I wish we had more time to explore and relax on the island and in our life. #yoga #yogaonthebeach #jettyisland #yogaretreat #innerpeace #innerchild #pnw #pnwlife #yogiclifestyle
We went for a mini family adventure today. I needed some sea air. Only in the PNW can you eat blackberries on the beach.the boys enjoyed the caves and tree roots, pretending they were a funky house. #makemysoulhappy #sea #pnwlife #pnwsummer #miniadventure #familyadventures #getoutside #goodformysoul
Blackwater - what a thin, techy and sequential beauty of a climb! πŸ§—πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ @andreimzk , Squamish fits you! πŸ’ͺ β€’ #squamishclimbing #trainhardclimbhard
Today’s hike was so strenuous, but epic! Strawberry Lake to Strawberry Falls to Strawberry Basin to Strawberry Summit. 13 Miles, 5,000 feet up and then down. Reached amazing heights, cleared a lot of head space and discovered some amazing new scenery. Missed having @_brooklynn_rae_ there, but when your best friend is HBIC in the fire world, duty calls! Still one hell of a weekend trip so far! . . . . #pnw #pnwlife #pnwonderland #pnwhiking #iphoneography #easternoregon #malhuernationalforest #hikinglife #pacificnorthwest #pacificnorthbest #strawberrymountain #strawberrylake #strawberryfalls #oregonlife #exploregon #weekend
Because it’s the WEEEEEEEEKEND!!!!!!πŸ₯‚πŸŽ‰πŸ™Œ And I realized that this week was our one year anniversary of moving out to the country to live on a 5-acre hazelnut farm in the Willamette Valley! I’m not gonna lie, I was hella nervous about this move. Nervous about how I’d feel living so far out in the middle of nowhere. If I’d survive. If we’d make any friends out here. If the kids’ school would be a good fit. If they would make any friends. If @emberandvine and I would drive each other insane. If the sheer size of the property would be too overwhelming. If I’d want to quit and give up and move back to the city. I had so so so much anxiety the months and weeks and days leading up to the move. But the moment we did it I felt like I could breathe again. My anxiety was gone, and it hasn’t returned. And I’m happy to report we not only survived our first year, but we thrived, and I’m looking forward to spending at least the next decade here. I absolutely love it out here. It’s the most peaceful and beautiful place I’ve ever lived. It has its quarks and downfalls of course, but the positives far outweigh any of the negatives. . And we have so many plans for the property, including replanting our hazelnut farm to something more sustainable (stay tuned!), and renovating the barn (in progress!!!) to be used as a space for farm to table dinners, events, classes, workshops, or possibly a photography studio. The ideas are endless, and they are happening! . Raising our kids in this special place is a pretty awesome gift. And living in Oregon wine country is a pretty sweet gift to us ;) πŸ₯‚πŸ·πŸ₯‚πŸ· So speaking of, tonight we’re drinking bubbly from the Willamette Valley and celebrating the fact that two of our good friends just moved to our neighborhood this week! This is the view from their new property! Pretty stunning. . What’s in YOUR glass this weekend??? 🍷 . . . . . #farmlife #countryliving #chehelammountains #pnwlife #fridaytoast #Oregonwine #ORwine #oregonsparklingwine #bubbles #bubbly #sparklingwine #winetime #wineoclock #wvwines #willamettevalley #winestagram #instawine #wine #winesofinstagram #inmyglass #winelife #winewriter #wineblogger #winelover #vindulge

Fueled by tequila. Tonight’s post brought to you by: screaming children, carb-fasted mania, a β€œquick” 4-miler at sundown for streak day #226 and a beautiful front porch sunset and glass of tequila. Only my second serving of alcohol in the last 3+ weeks. Probably the least I have had in the last 14-15 years of my life. Felt right tonight with such a perfect Oregon evening though. Gearing up for a fun couple of weeks with my 6th Hood to Coast next weekend, birthday in a week, a week+ off of work and some Elk Lake time with the other half of β€œTwo Great American Families” @kirbf and @astronat.

My sweet Oregon coast I do love you so. Today was the perfect day with good people and good food and good adventure. πŸ™Œ - - - I'm turning in my last final tonight and I literally couldn't be more relieved. I have learned a lot about myself this semester taking these 19 condensed credits. I honestly didn't think I could do it. I didn't think I was motivated enough or smart enough and I was scared. But I did it! And now we get to leave for vacation in two days!! Be ready for a million videos and pictures of us in San Diego!! πŸ’—πŸŽ‰πŸ’— . . . . . . #livethelittlethings #livethemoment #livefolk #liveauthentic #wildernessculture #pnwonderland #pnwlife #pacificnorthwest #goodvibes #lookslikefilm #welivetoexplore #exploretocreate #exploremore #adventureculture #adventurevisuals #visualsoflife #vscocam #vsco #vscogood #vscogram #vscoauthentic #vscolove #vscodaily #iphoneonly #oregoncoast #pnw #oceanlife

I might need to bring this in to a shop to verify it is truly @nobleglass cuz it measures out at 20” and I’ve never seen one of their bongs this tall.

Zak: psst, I took this from Mom's pocket, hide it before she sees it. Jynx: I'll hide it, in ma belly. πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‹ . I cannot be more grateful for how well these two have bonded. They were sharing bones and the water bowl from day 1. Jynx wants to do everything Zak does. They play tug and chase each other. They occupy themselves with doggie games when we are busy. . We had two dogs before them; they were two years apart. They got along fine, and liked each other, but they didn't have the same bond and play together like these guys do. I really think it's the age difference because Zak and Jynx are only 1 year apart. . If you have multiple dogs, are they 'partners in crime', and play together a lot too? .
