Views like these are why I take forest service roads for fun on the weekend! 😍 After driving through the woods for 30 minutes on a washed out road - I turn a corner, dropped my jaw and pulled over to soak it all in.
“The sky, pink fire across the earth with clouds stretched out, combed in curls like silver hair.
Silver streaks that float above our heads like little lines of dreams we won’t unveil.
We see with eyes that’ve seen too much,
But we know nothing.
We see with eyes that won’t see enough,
But we know love.” | AVA
Even amidst the overwhelming chaos that exists in my life, there are moments nestled within saturated with joy, & love, & peace. Moments I shift my focus to and feel clarity. Moments that keep me going, still.
Things are messy. But, as one of my greatest inspirations once said, when you’re going through hell, keep going. Because what’s on the other side is greater, brighter, and more vibrant than the darkness that persists in the present. We will get there. One day at a time.
Have any of you seen the YouTube channel Primitive Technology? My sister @keturahrahel just told me about it yesterday, and it’s truly addictive, but in a good way. .
No talking, no subtitles, just a man in the wilderness making things with his hands using only what nature provides. .
We got totally sucked in last night and Olive decided she wants to make a house in our favorite nature walk destination. .
I know watching this channel will give them ideas that will take our nature walks and mud station play to the next level and I can’t wait to watch their creativity unfold as we enter the spring and summer. .
If you haven’t seen this channel go check it out right now. Especially if you love to encourage nature play and getting dirty. Seriously amazing stuff. #primitivetechnology#earthschooling#waldorfhomeschool

There is part of me that always feels slightly guilty about setting down the first track marks across pristine snow... how about you?
Here's your Sunday moment of Zen. No snow in seattle but it looks like just about everywhere else got it, I've seen some nice gorge pictures popping up already.

The snow is coming down outside but campgrounds for this summer’s adventures are starting to book up. So that means today is a planning day. One of the things I love embracing about road life is how spontaneous it is, but at some point there has to be a little bit of an itinerary involved. Honestly booking campgrounds this far in advance is a tedious task that I put off as long as possible, kind of like taxes 🤷🏻♀️, because committing to plans kind of scares me. I’ve always been a last minute, go with the flow kinda girl (token Aquarius 🙋🏻♀️). But when I think about all the adventures that lye ahead, all the new friends I’ll make, the old ones I’ll see again, all the new places I’ll explore, and all the favorite ones I’ll return to - I get so stoked. My giddy excitement mixed with those big snowflakes coming down right now, it kind of feels like christmas morning 💕
Weekend drive along #ChuckanutDrive : This 24 mile side trip (link in bio) covers marine aquaculture along Samish Bay, agriculture in the north portion of the Skagit Valley, runs along the west edge of the Chuckanut Mountains that supplied sandstone for buildings in Bellingham and Fairhaven. Also recommend stopping a bite and sunset views at the historic @thechuckanutoysterbar.
