I was driving down a road and saw this peak lit up towards the end of the day and I had to stop to get a shot. I always mentally wrestle for a brief second about whether to pull over cause if I did every time I saw something I would never make it any where. The final justification is usually “you will regret this if you don’t.”
“Refuse to find comfort in other women’s flaws.” - @florencegiven
I think of myself as someone who is super supportive of the womxn around me. I love lifting womxn up, mentoring young female leaders, and just plain trying to make ladies feel good about themselves. However, I admit it - I am sometimes guilty of this. I work hard to actively silence the negative self-talk that goes on in my head but it wasn’t until I read this quote that I realized I do this too on occasion and that it’s super damaging. Judgement looks ugly on everyone - even mentally - and using them as a step stool doesn’t actually lift you up. Plus it causes me to fall into the trap where I am measuring my success by someone else’s - never a good thing. Not only are we all beautiful and incredible and achieving amazing things but there is room in this world for us all to do so and be so. I know I can do better. Committing to that today. Happy Friday y’all - keep on growing and loving and being fabulous.

Home is where you stake it. 🏕 Our idea of what “home” means has changed so much over the last few years. We feel the most at home when we‘re adventuring as a family, spending time in nature, hiking up mountains, cuddling up in a tent, or sleeping in the back of our car on long road trips. And while nothing truly beats a comfy bed or a heater on cold nights, we’re happy to sacrifice a little bit in order to experience more together.
What does “home” mean to you?
“It’s time to put a semicolon where you’re trying to put a period because your sentence hasn’t ended.” - Trent Shelton
I’ve been listening to @lewishowes
School of Greatness podcast lately, it’s amazing. If you haven’t heard it, I recommend you give it a listen, especially if you enjoy my posts. His guests often mirror my beliefs and inspire new ones in me daily. Recently, I listened to one with @trentshelton
, who I borrowed this beautiful quote from.
Wherever you are, your life is not over. Stop trying to put a period on your life story. You can continue your sentence, your life, your story, all it takes is a shift in mindset. You need to stop seeing walls and start seeing paths, doors, or hell take a window. Life changes are made in the tiny decisions you make all day long, including the one that your life is done. The statement that you’ve made your bed and now you have to lie in it is bullshit. You can change, but you have to change your perspective and get the hell out of bed. 📸: @fortheloveofknobs
Any insomniacs out there? I sleep like 3-5 hours per night, sometimes none. I think most of my photo inspiration is fueled by sleep deprivation, and a lot of editing is done when I'm at my absolute worst. Looking back through my older photos is always an interesting reflection for me.

in Squamish. Christmas is coming....🌲
If I’m going to be cold, can I be back in Washington where the early morning fog gently sweeps across the land, quietly exposing the beautiful Cascades in all her glory?
