play with fire .
just as we were headed off the mountain and the last light was fading, the sky exploded with color and two campers got in the frame, adding some scale to this landscape. an amazing sight in all directions that's worth a visit at any time of year - this is from hawksbill mountain near linville, nc.
Thanks to all who came out to see @mtkennedyfilm last night! Line around the block and packed house. Was such an honor to be joined by many amazing people who embody our Northwest ideals, and to feel the love from Seattle. If you want others to see the film and hear its message of hope and positivity, please donate at mtkennedy.com to help us with the costs of licensing music and archival footage. Thank you for your support! @pearljam @subpop @theseattlecinerama @mudhoney_ @malomadness @beckergram #returntomtkennedy#everytrailconnects#gooutsideandplay#wegohigh#jimwhittaker#robertkennedy
I was feeling lethargic today and had to force myself to take the kids out for a romp in the woods. I was really honest with the kids about my feelings but reminded them to trust our wisdom (that spending time outside each day is healthy for mind and body) even when we don’t feel like it. And guess what?......we didn’t regret it, we never do. Bless yourselves today and go outside for a walk! #gooutsideandplay
And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.
- Roald Dahl
Every wood and forest carry marks and signs of history...just like humans. There is something magical and special about nature when you observe it and tune into it.
Once upon a time, 2 little friends decided to go for a walk in the woods; they stopped to play a game "whoever catches and throws most leaves in the air is the winner!" 😃
When we started planning this trip a couple months back to @AFrameFlagstaff all we could seem to talk about was how much we hoped there would be snow that weekend. So you can imagine how excited we were when the week of the trip finally came around and there was snow on the forecast ☃️ ❉
As we opened a bottle of wine and cooked our adventure family dinner in this cute little cabin it stormed outside and we woke up to this beautiful winter paradise. Check out my stories today for a look at our stay here! ❉

7 years sober today. I never thought I would be where I am today. But here I am - alive, healthy, with a beautiful and loving wife, beautiful and happy daughter, incredible family, and insanely supportive friends. I know I say it time and time again, but if you are struggling with addiction there are three things you must do: 1) Surround yourself with people who support you and love you. 2) Do things you love to do. 3) Always have hope! You will not survive without those three things. I know I wouldn’t have! #sober

So we actually have pretty good weather today and are likely heading to the pediatrician 😢, but my blog post about getting kids playing outdoors in the winter is live and ready to go!
As you know, I’ve been trying to be more intentional about getting outdoors, so I scoured the internet and our own past experiences to come up a list of activities and inspiration to get out in the fresh air!
Playing in the snow is an obvious choice, but you might be surprised at a few of the others we’ve tried!
Head to the link in my profile to check out the post and I’d love to hear what YOU do to get outside during the winter! Let me know in the comments 👇🏼
It isn’t enough to just hope something good will happen to you.
You can’t sit around and wish your dreams into reality.
Hoping and wishing will never amount to anything. How many times have you wished for something without action and it came true?
No man of greatness has sat idly by hoping that luck would find him. He didn’t go in search for himself, as if pieces of him have been scattered across the planet.
The great man creates himself, to whatever he wants to be. Whatever “luck” people think he may have stumbled upon is actually brought upon by courage, discipline, and faith.
The overnight success stories don’t happen overnight. Behind every successful man is years and years of hard work.
Stop hoping. Start working.
