Seattleites! Do you have a favorite outdoor spot to visit on a beautiful (not foggy) fall day?
This past week, Tacoma has had someone pretty special in town... it’s Vivaldi, the humpback whale! 🐋 He’s been feeding, diving, fin-slapping, and breaching in Dalco Passage all week long, and has been visible from Owen Beach and many of the viewpoints in Point Defiance. 🙌🏻 Sarah, the lovely, talented potter behind @downingpottery , tried getting a look at Vivaldi over the weekend, but the fog kept him hidden. She echoed our thoughts just right though, when she said everything else about the moment was “October perfection.” 🍁🍂🧡 We’re big BIG fans of Sarah’s work, of whale watching, of Owen Beach, and of T-Town in October, making this an easy choice for today’s #welove253 post. Thanks for letting us share, Sarah! ✨☕️🧡🐋🍂#walifestylehomes
trust the magic of new beginnings ✨

Monday plan: meet a friend for happy hour 🌿 #cheers
There’s a few things I know for sure. 1. I am not at all a city person. Give me that cabin life everyday of the week. 🏕 2. Pretty sure I have the cutest doggo on the planet. 🐶 love that dude.
We were so exhausted at this point of our trek up to the top of golden ears, we nearly ended up camping right here. The view was incredible but I’m really happy we kept pushing on to the top.
Enjoying every last drop of October sunshine. #ExploreSquamish

Happy Anniversary to these coffee lovers who RoAdTrIPed all the way up from Oregon to celebrate at #littlereds ♥️☕️♥️
2018 was a whirlwind I’m married to an amazing man who’s often my mentor, friend and soul mate. This month marks one year of owning my own Business PNW Living under the Keller Williams Realty In OR and WA Mid remodel on our home in Lakeshore that is hair pulling frustrating and yet so Incredibly rewarding. Planning our wedding reception and honeymoon is harder than navigating a new road in the dark without headlights. My mother’s hair raising stint in ICU and plenty of tears and sleepless nights. I’m actually beyond thankful 2018 is heading towards the end. The holidays are coming, the fall chill is creeping into the air and feel a huge change coming on. One I can’t even articulate or explain it’s just in my bones. I don’t know what’s in store for 2019 but goals, starting a family, possibly moving out of state and putting in roots are high on the list.#dowhatyoulove #pnwliving #theoutdooragent #autumn #homemade #change #goals #business #amazing #2018 #2019 #life @chadillac_g #Mrs .
Completed another family hike from the list on Marcus’s day off over the weekend 🤗Being with my people in the midst of God’s big handiwork is pretty near perfect (though my face in one of these pictures says otherwise 🤣). It’s always refreshing and humbling to get outside and climb a mountain. My soul desperately needed it this week. So grateful for easy access and the ability to do it 🙏🏼🍁🌲⛰👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 #thepadillapack #familyadventures #gooutside #olympicnationalpark #lenalake #hikewithkids #pnwlife #pnwliving #upperleft #lovewhereyoulive #lovewhoyourewith #momlife #parentlife #activeparenting
Today's aesthetic. Wearing: olive green poncho+dark blue jeans+cream knee high socks+black suede platform knee high boots. Fall is my spirit animal (I AM also just under 50% native, so please don't come at me with 'cultural appropriation' on that last statement, as it's happened before.) . . . . . . . . . . #fallfashion #fallootd #poncholyfe #fashionblogger #fallcolors #pnw #autumn #pnwblogger #fashion #red #orange #coral #olive #fallhues #berrylips #girlswhodye #pnwliving #centralwashington #girlsofautumn
Where did the ferry landing go? Thick fog here in the islands today, a quite common phenomenon in the fall! #sanjuanisland #foggymorning #cantseeanything #fallishere #islandliving #upperleftusa #pnwliving

Here is the truth. No one else is responsible for your success. Not your boss. Not your trainer. Not your coach. Not your spouse. Not your mentor. You are responsible for your success. ⭐️ If you aren’t moving forward, that’s on you. If you aren’t EXCITED, that’s on you. No one else can build your dreams. No one else can keep you excited. No one else can go to work FOR YOU. With you? Yes. For you? No. ⭐️ You deserve to show up for yourself. You deserve to take ownership and stake claim on what you want. Only YOU can do that for yourself. ⭐️ So what are you waiting for?

This is the worst photo of me ever but I just die laughing every time I look at it. Ryan and my mom were both laughing at me for awkwardly holding my food up, front and center. 😂🤷🏻‍♀️ Funny memories > picture perfect #october #pumpkinpatch #relationshipgoals #iloveyou #funnymemories #pnwliving #squash

Wishing I could freeze time and hold on to moments like this 😌❤️ when I worked on pediatrics pre-baby, I’ve always told new parents to cherish every snuggle and hold them close cause they grow up fast. I never thought I’d witness that for myself so soon! She’s such a booger, she ate a leaf the other day lol but I love that face so stinking much! Nothing makes me happier than coming home and seeing her eyes light up as she gives me a big hug.

Wishing my morning was starting here with a slow cup of coffee instead of with a mountain of e-mails 😭😭😭 The best part about staying @innatarchcape ?? They have designated DOG-FRIENDLY rooms - Finley & Norman had the absolute best time going on their very first vacay! Life just isn’t as good without these guys by our side🐶🐶 #oregoncoast #travelblogger #pnwliving
Oh hi lighting and dewy skin, can you stay forever?!? This picture was pure luck with the lighting cause y’all know my selfie game is WEAK!
Eastern Washington gives me a vibe that is unexplainable. This land is so different than that of where i come from (Michigan).
Nature never goes out of style.
Oh how I love crunchy colorful Fall leaves beneath my feet 🍂 #pnwonderland

“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.” Audre Lorde What was the last self-care thing that you do for yourself? One of my favorite things is to drive to one of the surrounded beaches for a walk after a long day at work. It helps me disconnect and ease my mind into the evening and focus on my family. #boudoirphotographer #selfcaretips #boudoirinspiration #selfcarematters #romanceinseattle #selfcarefirst #seattlewomen #seattlegirl #seattlegirls #selfcareday #seattlegirlbosses #tiuseattle #iloveseattle #seattleblogger #pnwblogger #selfcareisntselfish #seattlelife #pnwliving #seattlelove #pnwwomen #pnwwomenhikers #pnwgirl #pnwgirls #pnwgirlsdoitbetter

Last night’s event at @steam_plant with @yelpspokane was pure magic.

One of my favorite things about photo shoots is connecting with people. I feel like I'm more of an introvert, but can always find ways to get out of my quietness. I've been doing photography for over a year now and am loving the journey of meeting you, connecting with you, and allowing myself to be scared and nervous, but also confident in knowing I will produce quality photos for you. I will never stop learning, I will never stop growing; I don't want to become stagnant in my photography. I want to stop time, just for a moment, for you to look back on. . . #heymob . . #captureamoment #introvertlife #connectingwithpeople #portlandeventphotographer #portlandphotographer #pdxphotographer #mombosslife #pnw #pnwliving #freetobeyou #portraitphotographer #eventphotographer #familyphotographer #weddingphotographer #photographerforyou
Did you know that your throw pillows don’t have to match? Look for coordinating colors in different designs to add some fun to your decor. #homestaging #homestagingworks #pnwliving #decor #color #cedarandfig #cedarandfigstaging
Monday’s with Moose.
Hope y’all are doing well. I had an amazing weekend exploring the beautiful PNW. Went out to a new waterfall, drove the Hood Canal loop and worked on some personal projects. Life is great and I receive continued reminders that I’m on that path I’m suppose to be. That’s a great feeling. This picture is a great reminder for me. • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • #pmgridchallenge #northwestisbest #thenwadventure #bestofnorthwest #pnwparadise #northwestnature #pnwphotography #pnwadventures #ourpnw #upperleft #compassoutdoors #liveyouradventure #outdooradventures #cascadiaexplored #pnwphotographer #ig_bliss #ig_brilliant #takemoreadventures #wanderwashington #explorewashington #staypnw #pnwliving #usinterior #lostfam #explorewildly #followyourfeet #findmeoutside #autumnvibes #autumncolours #autumnmood @the.nw.adventure @bestofnorthwest @pnw.paradise @PNW_Compass

Monday.
What a difference a day makes. I’m sure there’s sun out there somewhere, but today we are cocooned in dense, grey fog. That was the nicest way I could put it, sitting here in my thickest sweater while Chris gets the wood stove going 🔥. . . . . . . . #gunlake #goldbridge #bralorne #bridgeriver #bridgerivervalley #southchilcotin #ccclives #livewhereyouplay #lake #lakelife #backroadmapbooks #backroads #cabin #cabinlife #beautifulbc #bcisbeautiful #dailyviewbc #explorebc #herpnwlife #pnw #pnwonderland #pnwliving #reflection #kayak #kayaking #autumn #fall #leafpeeping #ohcanada

When it’s Monday again and you’re wondering where the weekend went ... 😭😂 Honestly, that’s the truth though. I’m not sure where my weekend went or what I did. I swore it was Thursday then I blinked and it’s Monday! And yes we went to the pumpkin patch again for the 500th time haha. We’re never going on a weekend again! It was PACKED! That’s actually an understatement lol. As much as I want to be a weekend warrior, I’m more of a weekday venturer. Less crowd!

Still waiting patiently for autumn to kick up here in New York 🍁 What are your favorite fall spots in the city?
Monday’s aren’t my favorite day of the week, but seeing this view from my closet window makes it a little bit easier. Isn’t it funny how the littlest thing can make and sometimes even break your day? 🌄 I hope you all have a great Monday and week and always seek to find the good.

I find the act of making soup comforting. Soups and stews are definitely what I like to refer as comfort food. But for me, it’s just as comforting to make a soup or stew as it is to eat it. Typically, at the end of every week, I take all the leftover fresh and roasted veggies and make them into a bowl full of delicious soup to nosh on over the weekend. Sometimes I end up with a lovely blended soup like this Red Curry Cauliflower Soup. Creamy, a little spicy, and so delicious, I find myself snagging extra cauliflower at the market just so I can make it. This soup makes a lovely light meal or a tasty little starter for a dinner party or family gathering. Find the recipe on the website. The link is in the profile ☺️ Happy Monday! #lifearoundmytable #karistaskitchen #soup #eatyourveggies #falleats #comfortfood #healthyrecipes

I speak this so loudly, and often. When I was in my younger years of entrepreneurship I felt so drawn to expressing every talent I had, bc it felt good and purposeful. But in hindsight.. I see clearly that there's a difference between putting all of your energy into everything you're passionate about, and putting energy towards what will propel you, internally. What I was doing was indeed launching me forward in business but on the inside it was shifting me away from what I actually needed to focus on! Kind of mind blowing, but it's the hard truth and a perfect case of imbalance. Ask yourself, what could you be doing differently for yourself? 🌟 If you're still reading this, I share some of this story on @casiyostphoto 's blog that will be publishing this coming week ♥ and, she'll be writing on mine! #selfcaresunday , give your mind and body what it needs and know that doesn't have to appear expensive or fancy. ✖️⭕ #holistic #bossbabe #balancedlifestyle
