Strength, security, happiness, self awareness, there’s no greater way to find these than to breathe in and go. “Day-dating” is my favorite adventure and I firmly believe that everyone should do it. Leave your friends, your significant other, and just for one day explore on your own. You’ll be surprised by what you might find. #gotowardsthelight (actually stay away).
Up in the hills over the Columbia River, the Astoria–Megler Bridge barely winking through the wildfire smoke. There were more charming houses than I could count, and the weather was fine. The barking of the sea lions echoed from the pier and locals working in their yards stopped to say hello. I followed a secret path down through a tunnel of trees and wound up at a neighborhood pub called Hondo's where I was welcomed a friend. Hondo and I spent a good chunk of the afternoon swapping stories and watching his dog Dexter greet the passersby. Astoria is one of those rare places that is so utterly itself. All those old houses are full of the salt of the earth nd you can see the threads of the past still very much worked into the fabric of the present.
🌻10/10 recommend to a friend! Ya’ll needa take time out of your week to go support the locals in Portglenone. They are the friendliest brunch who have brought so much joy to their local community through these stunning sunflowers. All proceeds go towards their local chapel but other than that it truly inspired me seeing the joy on everyone’s faces when they seen the haze of the yellow field! Amazing how something so simple (yet beautiful) can bring the community together🖤 #Sunflarrs#supportlocal#discoverni
"You call me out upon the waters
The great unknown where feet may fail
And there I find You in the mystery
In oceans deep
My faith will stand" 🌟🌟🌟 Have a blessed Monday, make the most of every day you are given ❤❤❤
Just needed to remind myself that my body IS capable—since mountain biking and depression leaves me feeling pretty inadequate most days—so I hiked up a trail-less peak for a 1,247 ft elevation gain in less than a mile. It doesn’t matter how many breaks you take or how slowly you get to the top, or even IF you get to the top (the best photo op here was about 1/2 up). Just #optoutside . #womenwhohike#exploremore
Spending the evening writing out places to eat and dance at in Italy. Our little convertible Fiat is awaiting our arrival and the suitcases are already getting pre-packed. We have jazz in the background and munching on salami. I will be creating my first set of vlogs all thanks to @lensrentals 🙌🏼 let’s do thisssss!!! // views at @theapollodc
Legs felt surprisingly fine today after yesterday's spontaneous 28km's so I took them for some running fun in the backyard trails and see, this is me not being smart, because yes, I know proper rest and recovery is important but there is absolutely no fun in that.
Truth be told, I think my body actually was feeling more tired than I realized because I was all thumbs out there today. Running sloppy and tripping all over myself and I even managed to have one epic fall of shame. 🤦🏻♀️
I still made sure to get plenty of hill climbs in for good measure though. You know, just until my tank was fully drained and my eyes started to feel heavy in their sockets. Call me crazy but teetering on the edge of effort-based exhaustion is relaxing, invigorating, gruelling, meditative and every shade in-between.
I'm officially assuming the couch sitting corpse pose and not moving for the rest of the night now. At least not until it's time for another mango.
Oh #mammothlakes and the #easternsierra how I love you! 💕 Fantastic weekend doing all the things: golf at #sierrastar , shopping for ski boots at Mammoth Mountaineering, Wine Walk at the Village (check out my wine favs in photos), breakfast and very large coffees at Stellar Brew, and a bit of class 3 climbing up Crystal Crag. #takelessdomore

As the first signs of fall emerge and we are reminded that the seasons are about to change again, it's good to remember that we are meant to change, too.
Meant to break out of our molds.
Meant to get out of our comfort zones.
Meant to embrace the new while we gracefully let go of the old.
So, slowly but surely, here we go - into a new season of the year and a new season of ourselves. 🍂
» I've been running all around Nashville since the minute I got here, grabbing coffee and meals and sharing all the Europe things and just generally catching up on life. It's been so lovely to see so many people already, and I'm looking forward to seeing more this week, but I won't lie: I'm missing parts of my Europe life something fierce. But if I've realized anything over the last few days, it's that I am obscenely loved by Jesus and my people. I'm quite humbled to have friends all over the country — and now the world — and that includes y'all here on Instagram, so thank you for being along for the journey!
Here's to the next adventure, which looks to be shaping into another good, albeit unexpected, one. I mean, at this point, nothing surprises me... plus this wild heart might not be able to stay put for too long, so I'm real excited to step into all that God is working together ✨
This may be yet one more post that requires looking at things from a distance (i.e., hold your phone with a stretched arm) and here is why...
▫️ The challenges of working in tone-on-tone are real, in that up-close and at eye-level (where most of the stitching is happening) it’s really hard to see what takes shape. It’s only from afar that you get to see the subtleties of the texture that begins to form. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
▫️ There are a few more samples to run through, but I think I am liking what I am seeing so far...
Found a derelict building, spent half an hour trying to get up on the roof, almost broke my back, finally reached the top, got stuck, screamed the place down, fell. Just another day in the life. View was nice though! 🙋🏼♀️🌍☀️ #Cornwall#Lelant @lovecornwalluk
Od 10 roku życia mam deskę i po prostu kocham na niej jechać przed siebie 🐙🐙🐙 nie umiem skakać, nie jeźdźę jakoś bardzo szybko, ale dla mnie najważniejsze jest czerpanie radości z tego co robię i nie przejmowanie się innymi 🐙🐙🐙 a jazda sprawia mi wielką radość 😁😁😁 co wam sprawia radość? 😋😋😋
