Here be giants ✨
I have many variations of this photo in front of this tower, from many trips, pilgrimages; with different goals, context, people, weather, states of mind each time... and it somehow always feels exactly *right*.
As completely jazzed as I am about upcoming opportunities to hop on a plane and fly far away from the ice and snow as Alberta’s winter sets in, it’s impossible to forget about the views in my own backyard - and these colors that lie hidden under the now-frozen-over lakes. ❄️ 💦 #travelalberta#lakelouise#mountaingirls
So many rivers but they all reach the sea. •
Went on a special trip last week with my life co-pilot @cherrhg to Olympic National Park. So many moments of silent, simple bliss but as this sunset happened we were yelling and dancing with joy. ✨

Took a little unintentional insta hiatus because I was busy shooting and having so much fun over the weekend, and when I got home I was socially tanked and needed a break from people! To those of you extroverts out there you might be confused, but if you’re more introverted like me, you’ll know how a weekend interacting with lots of people can really take it out of you. Now that I work from home and spend so much more time alone, I’ve found myself more sensitive to feeling socially overwhelmed than I did when I was working a retail job and was used to interacting with so many strangers every day. But I spent yesterday catching up on some TV shows and started binge watching @thewhimsicalwoman’s PCT videos (anyone else have a pipe dream to become a badass thru biker?), and today I deep cleaned my apartment and got somewhat caught up on errands, and I already feel so much better. Some time alone and self care is all I need for a good reset. Any other introverts out there that feel the same?

Your daily reminder that life isn’t always picture perfect ✌️
Social media only shows one view 👀
So sit back and enjoy the moments for exactly what they are 🙏
Release your expectations 💙
Keep your mind and heart open 💭
Don’t judge a book by its cover 📕
Life is good 😀
Nature is beautiful 😍
The end 💕
I haven’t been getting outside as much as I was this summer and winter has yet to arrive here in the PNW.. so I’ve been putting more time in at the studio and painting my summer memories✨
It’s almost the crazy time of the year when everyone is shopping around for gifts. Remember to keep in mind when buying loved ones gifts to shop small businesses and help support the dreams of small business owners, help the local economy and give that gift a bit more of a special meaning.
✨Be cool and buy art✨if not from me, there’s so many rad artists out there to find something unique and special. Thank you to everyone that has purchased any of my art and supporting me. Link is in bio if you want to check any of it out. 🎨🏔🙌🏽💜
I like to smile! I do. I like to try and make others smile, and laugh, and have a good time. I think life’s too short to not, at least, try to enjoy it.
And no, not every hour of the day feels enjoyable. Would I prefer to be watching Channing Tatum perform his Magic Mike show rn?
HELL YES! 🥰 But some dreams may never come true, friends! 😂.
In the meantime, we do what WE CAN to enjoy life, and this is different to each one of us. A couple of things I mentioned on my live video last night (still available for a couple more hours today) are:
🔸 Listening to positive affirmations, every morning;
🔸 Saying positive affirmations; every night.
It’s amazing how much it’s helping me feel happier and have a better attitude, so I thought I would share!
Have you ever tried listening to and/or saying affirmations? What are your favorites?

🇧🇷: Eu gosto de sorrir. Eu gosto de tentar fazer os outros sorrir e se divertir. Eu acho que a vida é curta demais e temos que, pelo menos, tentar aproveitar.
E não, nem toda hora de todo dia é espetacular. Claro que eu adoraria estar assistindo o gato do Cauã numa praia da vida 🥰 mas tem sonho que é só isso, sonho! 😂.
Enquanto isso, temos que fazer o possível para aproveitar a vida, né? E uma coisa que tenho feito e que até compartilhei num vídeo live que ainda essa disponível, é:
🔸 Escutar afirmações de positividade de manhã;
🔸 Recitar afirmações de positividade de noite.
Tem me ajudado muito a me sentir mais alegre e ter uma boa atitude no dia-a-dia!
Quem já tentou isso? Escreve aí as suas afirmações favoritas!
Incredibly grateful to breathe clean air. I’m acutely aware that having the ability to escape poor air quality, a home to come back to, and assurance that my friends, family, and pets are all safe are privileges that many do not have. My heart and love go out to everyone affected by the California fires ❤️
We’re loving these crisp, sunny days. I’m not sure how the chickens feel about it, but I guess they’ll learn to adapt and get tough, right along with the rest of us.😅
Isn’t it crazy how quickly the shorter days sneak up on you?
A little late with posting this but I can't believe we've been living in Colorado for ✌ years now! It has definitely been a learning experience here for sure. I have learned to accept that the weather changes drastically, hail is no joke and to always travel with a water bottle! I've had a love/hate relationship with this place ever since we moved here but I think I'm finally loving it here! 🌿 #coloradoanniversary
