It's cliche but the more we do the more we realize life is about those little moments.  Watching a drive in movie when a shooting star streaks across the sky, enjoying a random joke with a friend, gifting a little something that reminds you of someone special, the way the light hits a flower on a hike, or the smell of the air when rain is coming after a long drought are the memories that stick.  The collection of little moments during our big adventures are the ones that I treasure the most.

A weekend in Boise visiting dear friends.  Basque food, hard ciders, bike rides, swimming,  rose garden exploring, and it's only day #1!

Marta finally remembered that she earned a movie for being a rockstar on the Yukon this summer.  A drive in means we all win!

Early morning hike with the pups before the heat gave me a little time to gather some fireweed and nettle.  Wildcrafting and learning while everyone gets out for exercise. *

My little helper had been assisting me making jams lately.  Today she decided to make her own concoction....Tiara soup

Rememants of past lives in an old cabin at Fort Selkirk along the Yukon River.  The stories of the people who have or do still live there enthrall and inspire me with their volition, adaptability, foresight, and character.

I guess after camping for two months straight it's important to rediscover your fashion sense.

I finally made it out for a short foraging hike.  Found lots of horsemint , yarrow, and fireweed, spatterings.of clover, and alfalfa.  Tomorrow we will try a canyon that isn't as dry and hope to work on the nettles!  I am trying a new recipe for "Ivan Chai" a tea made from fermented fireweed!

An amazing family we met this summer had this reminder  at their home.  It is a good reminder of how we hope to be raising Marta.

We made it home just in time to start making jams, jellies, teas, and of course treats with the leftovers.

Marta always looks like she belongs in the forest.

Wildlife comes in all shapes and sizes.  Sometimes it even comes to see you.

Beautiful sunset where we are celebrate our 2nd 6 yr anniversary and the end of our summer Yukon trip along the Yellowstone River in Mt.  Life is good.

Today our adventure comes to a close.  Bojan heads back to work, but Marta and I still have some time to explore before getting back to the grind. 
Two months ago we left the house for our first canoe trip.  We traveled through Canada to the Yukon and then canoed our way into to Alaska.  New territories, fresh knowledge, some different ways of looking at things and lots of new ideas!  So thankful to have had this oppurtunity and look forward to more!!💜🗻🚣 #iwasbornwild #wildandfreechildren #wilderness #familyadventures #getoutside #alaska #canada #yukonriver #canoetime #expedition #twomonths #explore #thankful #newexperience #memories #camping #tent #alpsmountaineering

Montana has been oh so kind.  Warm weather, great people, and some good old fashioned mountain foraging.  Coral Mushrooms were a first for us and they are delicious!! #montana #mushrooms #coralmushroom #foraging #wildcrafting #mountains #mountainlife #naturalfood #lookaround
Wapta falls of Yoho National Park in B.C.  Water was the theme of the trip.

We cooked food on islands prior to camping most of the river trip to avoid bear encounters.  With no real night these evening stops were the perfect way for everyone to stretch after a couple of hours in the canoe!
