Day tripping! Don’t we look happy? We are. But what you don’t see here is what happened in the moments and hours before. Preparing for a trip (yes, even a day trip) is complicated because I make it that way. So we were already behind schedule when the cat decided to hide in the backyard and then watch silently while we combed the neighbors’ yards for 15 minutes. #thatdarncat
Once we were on our way I wanted to get a cute shot of us and when @coachkurtomatic glanced my direction he swerved slightly to the left, just enough be out of the lane and onto the left shoulder where the grooves are cut into the asphalt and it makes that hideous noise. So I screamed. And then I threw my phone down onto the floorboard in my best 3-year-old-tantrum move. Kurt was afraid to laugh at me but he couldn’t help it so I laughed while I was still crying.
After all the drama we settled into a lovely day and tried our best to stay present to the beauty that we beheld and the gift of just being together.
Hello friends!! I'm so excited to be coming home to the east coat this summer! @headstandlyoness and I have put together this little camping event that will be all fun, nature, relaxed vibes and a good time! We are inviting you to join us on Friday night, Aug 2 to a already set up camp site for bonding around the fire with s'mores and laughter. Saturday will be our Tubing Day, starting with morning breakfast, day excursion, back in time for lunch, then free to explore or hammock it up until the evening Waning Moon Fire Ceremony lead by Jen. Sunday morning I will lead our group in a light meditation and yoga flow. Followed by snacks and more nature adventuring at your leisure. Spaces are very limited so let us know ASAP you will be coming! 🌄🏕🔥🌊🌲🍫⛰🌅
Changchun Bridge and Shrine (aka Eternal Spring Shrine)
Long overdue visit to Red River Gorge with @roadtripguy and @kysquirrelhunter.
Nature Is A Tool To Get Children To Experience Not Just The Wider World, But Themselves 🌲
Hiked to the top of Brasstown Bald to begin day 1 of the birding bootcamp class that Maura and I are taking! Wonderful scenery and not a bad workout either, though my legs started screaming at me later during the day. 😂 You can see our cars looking all teeny tiny in the distance from the top of the mountain!
When you think too much about the day and all the things you have to do it may seem like the day is going to be long and hard. You will feel tired and not wanting to do anything that day. However, when you actually start doing the task no matter how dreadful it will feel and accomplish it, you will feel a little bit better. Then accomplish another task, then another. All you have to do is start no matter how shitty you feel. Get it done! ✅
As I was looking at this photo I really wanted a shot of espresso at 11 at night
Feelin’ that breeze. I was just playing around with this photo in mobile editing apps and Lightroom on pc. It was supposed to be just for fun and to learn the programs more and I ended up with this nostalgia, retro, vintage, 1970’s feel to it. At least to me.
