There’s no angry way to say bubbles 🥂🙌🏽⭐️ Happy weekend 🌺
Life is like a batch of cookies - you never know how it’ll turn out until you pull it out of the oven. If your focus is on the outcome, you’ll miss out on all the fun of the process.
These cookies didn’t turn out so well, but I sure had fun baking them! It’s such a long time since I’ve put time into baking and thinking about the people who would enjoy some cookies.
Todays life lesson: do what brings you joy, regardless of the outcome. 😉🍪 (And be grateful you have roommates who will eat them anyways!)
We stopped at this famous train track view in Banff, thinking we might stay for 15 or 20 minutes to see if we’d get lucky and see a train. As we sat down, a man traveling from Germany approached us as and we chatted, we learned that he flew all the way to Banff just to see and hear these trains pass through. He’d been at this spot all day watching them! His fascination with diesel trains (which is apparently something they don’t have in Germany) and the sounds that they make was next level; I’ve never met someone so interested in trains before! We compared lots of things about the US and Germany; everything from our government, to gas prices, to gun laws. It was fascinating to talk to someone from a different country about all of these things and to hear his opinions of both our country and his. At least an hour had gone by when we heard a train off in the distance, and just like that he was gone, running to the other side of the viewpoint to capture a video of it coming through for his friend back home who didn’t come on the trip with him.
Yes, I travel for the trails and the views, but experiences like these are the cherry on top of traveling and getting out of your comfort zone. And, we got to see a train, so that was pretty cool too.
How amazing are these colors? still can't believe we hit the most perfect weather while at Mt. Rainier NP...
Grateful for second trimesters so I can still get out and see the larches! Stoked for another mountain adventure this weekend! 📷 @dom.autumn
Crazy how it all turns out 💓🍭
Went for a ride today for only the second time since buying this bike a year and a half ago 😮. It is so different from running! I'm a big baby going downhill and I ride the brakes. The fastest I got going was 14 mph 😂. I'm hoping I'll get more comfortable eventually. I went for a short run right after and it was a strange but fun transition. What a fantastic day to be outside! I almost wished I had a third activity to do! #SalomonSquad #TimeToPlay
We crossed spacious streets with building resembling places, in La Rambla promenade; the shops were well illuminated and there was movement and life... I did not decide to go to sleep, even thought I wished to, so I could rise early and contemplate in daylight, this city, unknown to me: Barcelona, capital of Catlonia.
2 mile hike, snow and ice, 10000 ft high, the airs a bit thinner than Florida but the views are just as gorgeous. ✨ check my story to see the hike 🏔❄️
Slot canyons, purple wigs, glitter, and flower leis. Backcountry preparedness at its highest level.
Thinking about framing this photo🤔
Don’t mind if I do! Ate ALL THE CHEESE at a private tasting at @hatchmanscheeses
. Produced in a small off-road shack, and bursting with big flavours, their cheeses are definitely an island must-try. 🧀✨
Hakuna MaTahoe...that’s the motto. And the name of a really cute pup i was lucky enough to spend the last 2 days with 😁
Back from my month long 50th birthday celebrations (very very lucky 😊)...
I’m now looking forward to sharing my beautiful midlife journey with you as a 50 year old.
I plan to explore a multitude of ways to help make this the best part of my life yet - including fitness, nutrition, mindfulness, beauty, fashion and also more travel.
I don’t want to be or look younger but I do want to embrace this new part of my life with enthusiasm, energy and enjoyment.
I want to be healthy, fit and look and feel as good as I can - at any age.
Some of my posts include collaborations, a few are paid but all my posts are authentic and real - I only accept proposals and products that I genuinely want to try or love and that also align with my philosophies and ideas.
The brands I’m working with - thank you for giving me the opportunity to help share your fantastic products with my followers.
I also still have that Ironman triathlon in my mind and I’m trying to make a serious commitment to training over the coming months - it will be tough! Hope you laugh along with me during my struggles 😂.
So, lots to look forward to, lots to share and lots of fun to be had.
50 is looking very good 😊.

Anxiety and a lack of focus have always been a struggle for me. School, work, and life in general often end up becoming a big ball of stress and distractions. Being able to really focus on something and put all my effort in not something I’m great at. I really enjoy creative activities, especially painting, and I’ve given it another shot lately and actually found it to be a positive outlet for my anxiety. It’s a something that I enjoy, it relaxes me, and sharing it with friends and family has been kinda therapeutic. I love capturing the mountains that I call home and making little scenes! Basically, anxiety sucks, but there are ALWAYS ways to cope, and activities & people that can help 💜 If ya wanna check out the stuff I paint, I made an account for it! @mountainandpineart
Daily beauties often go unnoticed..
The thing about autumn is how shortly before dying the leaves still put on a magnificent show.. Like every minute counts, even when you don't know when it's your turn to fall.. No matter how close you are to the deadline.. The ultimate deadline.. So let's make use of that!! :3
Happiness is not something that can be faked. Happiness is something that has to be felt down deep in your heart💛 .
Finally gotten around to editing some photos from our little adventure to the sunflower fields 🌻 yes, you read that right. Your girl went not once but twice because look at how beautiful this place is okay? How could I not! 💛 .
I have been LOVING this perfect fall weather we have been having in Vancouver lately 😍 anyone else? 🍁🍂🧡 .
I am still so grateful to say this it our backyard in this beautiful city. 💛
Just let go. Let go of how you thought your life should be, and embrace the life that is trying to work its way into your consciousness 💛🧡 .
Am I the only one who loves a good sunset? 😍 I am obsessed. B.C. has been showing off the last few days and I for one, am pumped about it 💃
