How many servings of vegetables do you try to eat in a day?! I aim for 5-6 servings. 😋 veggies are so good for you!!!!! Full of nutrition + fiber + lots of other good stuff. .
Here are some buffalo cauliflower bites from @thugkitchen 😁 .
Do you have any yummy 🤤 veggie recipes? Please share! 🙏🏼
This photo was taken an hour after sunset. It was crazy how long the sunset lit up the sky after it had set. I wasn’t able to see complete darkness till around midnight. I loved watching the world slowly turn as I just stared up into the stars for hours on hours. I can’t wait to go back and spend a week in the J Tree but being able to be apart of this incredible place was something I’ll never forget for my first time.
We are getting down to the wire for shipping in time for Christmas delivery, so I thought I’d show you just a few of the items I have ready to ship in my shop right now. The last day to order is December 18th, if you want to ensure the item arrives in time to put under the Christmas 🎄 tree. Fair warning...things are moving super fast. Also, rings have been a big seller this season, and I do have some ready to ship. Many others I’m able to make in time for Christmas delivery if you get that order in soon. So get your little self on over to my shop (link in bio) ASAP!
It's such a busy time of year, I haven't been able to get out for a hike in two weeks. Itching to get out there again.
I have anxiety and when I don't go out in nature I start to get incredibly anxious and grumpy. It feels like my chest is constantly tight and any little thing can set me off.
Looking forward to getting back out there next weekend! Will need to recharge before Christmas.
Sorry it’s been a while, in part with the move and new adventure, I took a bit of a social media fast to better connect to my surroundings🏔⛷🌅.
Shoutout to everyone who’s checked in, & I’m sorry Stella isn’t here to keep us all better entertained💔 @thedreambeanmachine is back home, winterized and relaxing in Michigan for the winter.
I’m proud of the old girl kicking ass on the road allllll summer, and know she needs the rest😅😴.
As for me, Colorado has been awesome- right before coming out here I emailed @thecrownbreckenridge to see if they were hiring for the season and thankfully someone had just backed out, and so they were!
The owners just so happened to be visiting family in Michigan, and I just so happened to be downstate saying goodbye to @livsludwick and we were TEN MINUTES AWAY. We therefore had an interview over coffee the next morning, and I snagged the spot🙂☕️👑 I then had to jump on the road the next day, since I started work at 7am the next Tuesday! To make the world even smaller, I discovered upon arrival that through friends of friends, I had gone to Bonaroo with my now manager a few years back😄🤷🏼♀️.
The Crown has been tooo good to me, everything about this little coffee shop and the new friends/family that have come along with it have truly been a dream come true😊😊 I’m there pretty much every day so stop by and say hey/ enjoy a boozy coffee if you come to town! Please🙃.
I then managed to get just as lucky randomly snagging a sweet house with even sweeter people from a Facebook housing page just up the mountain from downtown. The five of us are enjoying the season cozy on the mountain with a hot tub and view 🏡😎
The iconic Joshua Tree is important to everyone here. Actually, it’s a plant species called Yucca brevifolia, which can live for many years. While it looks strong, it is also top heavy, and without deep roots. With the significant increase of visitors these past few years, people may not realize how fragile they really are and hang from them or even use hammocks between them. This however can be very damaging, and we hope everyone visiting the park or one of our properties takes a moment to be mindful and let them be. 🙏
This is Grams. I met him while I was hiking the John Muir Trail (JMT) in the spring of 2014 and he was a few hundred miles into his northbound through-hike of the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT). He had traveled all the way from his home country of Germany to hike the PCT. We did two back-to-back 30-mile days in the Sierra together, and I think it’s fair to say that those days changed my life. I had never walked so fast and so far before, and I’ve been hooked on big mileage days ever since.
Grams also introduced me to all kinds of backpacking concepts that weren’t even on my radar back in 2014. I didn’t know an overnight backpack could be less than 10 pounds. Poncho tarps, frameless packs, and down quilts? You’re telling me that even though I went to MEC and bought all the lightest gear I could find, my pack is double the weight of yours? Grams opened my eyes to all of that over those couple of days. He showed me gear he had sewn himself and he forded streams with his running shoes on. He drank from a cup at water sources and dealt with mosquitos by simply walking faster.
All these things matched my sensibilities and showed me a world I knew I belonged in. Until then, I got my fix of physical challenges and mileage from cross-country and track. It wasn’t until my experience of meeting PCT through-hikers on the JMT that I learned how to properly merge those things with my passions for camping and the outdoors. It turns out that weirdos who willingly choose to walk 2600 miles for leisure are “my people”. My education in backpacking is far from over, but I wonder if it ever would have truly started without meeting these people in 2014.
Grams and I parted ways forever when I stopped for a resupply at Vermillion Valley Resort, but I recently looked him up on the PCT Association’s list of alumni from 2014. He made it to Canada.

Another cool thing about long exposure photos is light. Letting in too much, not enough or capturing moving lights like cars or shooting stars. This silhouette photo of the rock got a little extra help from a car headed towards me. I thought it was pretty cool watching the composition of photos change over the course of the night.
Города — они совсем как люди. Некоторые умудряются очаровать тебя ещё при первом знакомстве, к примеру, своим аутентичным великолепием. Таким был для меня Париж. Мой город номер 12. ⠀
Величественная архитектура и пронзающие насквозь разряды творческого электричества, царящие повсюду. Дух свободы с 99% скидкой - уникальное предложение. Действует только сегодня,
только для тебя.
Та самая большая любовь, о которой все так любят рассуждать после бокала другого вина в пятницу вечером. Застает врасплох и не дает опомниться.
Я растворился в этих улицах, рассыпал кусочки души по пропитанными историей мостовым и в маленьком номере отеля, времён ещё, должно быть, короля Людовика Великого. И конечно, не смог собрать всё обратно, когда уезжал.
Этот город видел много таких как я. И каждый раз искренне платил любовью за любовь. А потом, когда очередная любовь уезжала, находил новую.
На том мы с Парижем и расстались. С легкой тоской по друг другу.
Меня ждали другие города, а в «город света» уже тогда спешили другие любители свободы.
Оглядываясь назад, я не то чтобы жалею. Но всегда с интересом думаю, как всё сложилось бы, реши я остаться? ⠀
Praising God for this amazing 🌎...and waterfall. .
There are 3 waterfalls on this rainforst hike and 2 you can swim in. The hike takes about 2 to 3 hours depending on how much time you want to sit back and enjoy mother nature. Also, there is a $7/person fee (start the hike and you'll end up at the area to pay...cash only).
