#yoga is already a community event to take part in, but every week my Mom goes to a free class at a branch of @nowatnpl that takes it to a new level. I've been to free classes before, but this class is unlike any I've been to. The atmosphere is a diverse group of different ages and backgrounds who make you feel like family when you come through the door. Everyone wears a smile and is quick to help anyone in need. Throw in an awesome teacher (@gilspics) and there is no reason why you shouldn't be looking for a free class to attend at your local library! πŸ™πŸ•‰οΈπŸ“Ώ #glitterglassesjourney #nashvillepubliclibrary

These humans.
This day.
Why do we only truly appreciate something when it no longer belongs to us? Does anyone else struggle with this??

#waterfallwednesday in honor of my current trip back home to #nashville! While I'm back home I'm planning to do a little hiking since that's something we are lacking down in Florida. I definitely took advantage of the amount of natural wonders that #Tennessee had to offer when I lived there. I guess growing up in a place will do that to you? Regardless, I now appreciate it so much more! πŸ™Œ

#sisterhoodsagashoutout to @megan.otteson! I fell for this girl within the first minute of meeting her. It was 3 years ago when I traveled {mostly} on my own to Canada. I met her on a brief bus ride from the campground to where I was volunteering for the day. When she told me she was there completely on her own and I was in awe. The only difference at the time was that I was traveling with a stranger I had met online a couple months prior. With zero cell service, I explained where we had set up camp and to find me. That afternoon I left a note on my tent explaining who I was. 2 days later (after volunteer shifts) I finally found her 2 tents down, and we were inseparable ever since! It was thanks to her that I made the leap to just go for it and stay in Canada an extra 2 weeks with random people I met along the way. That ended up being a life defining trip for me!

Meggie continued to inspire me post-Canada, however. She went to Asia later that year and stayed for several months just traveling and living life to it's fullest! We tried to meet in Australia after my Hawaii trip, but for medical reasons, I couldn't. Luckily I saw her again at the same festival we met at in 2016 and again when she came down and did part of our May 2017 road trip with Miles and me! She moved to Victoria over the last year and has been teasing me with her photos ever since. While she is currently on a travel break saving up, I look forward to see whereΒ life takes her next!

So cheers to you my #festiebestie!

Today at the beach was CRAZY! We watched a storm roll in all around us without actually hitting us! It was insane to see the nearby town disappear into the dark clouds and see the rain move in.... And be sitting in sunshine for it all! β˜€οΈβ˜οΈπŸŒ§οΈπŸŒŠ #glitterglassesjourney #milezofadventures

Soooo.. On the fourth I was wearing my #wendypeffercorn bathing suit (as @milezofadventures calls it) and thought it would be cool to do one of those #typicalinstagram shots. πŸŠβ€β™€οΈWhen I'm floating in the pool I feel so majestic and mermaid-like, especially with my hair flowing in the water...
It does not translate to photos the way I thought it would! BAHAHAHAHA! The first shot I look like a corpse, but wait! βœ‹ It gets better!!! Scroll ↔️ and lemme know which is your favorite! 
Y'all..I am a pro! Why do you doubt my incredibly graceful abilities?! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ #glitterglassesjourney #milezofadventures #typical #instafail

Happy Independence Day from Mount Rushmore! πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ A couple years ago on our big #crosscountryroadtrip we went out of our way to go check out this monument. Unfortunately it wasn't covered by our @nationalparkservice pass (and we were trying to keep spending to a minimum) but luckily you can see this amazing work of art from all the nearby roads. Stopping is prohibited but luckily I was riding in the passenger seat and snapped this shot at just the right moment!

Ok.. You know what? FINE! 😑
One (well two) things that mountain life DEFINITELY has a leg up on over Southern life are the BUGS/POISON PLANTS. πŸ™„ I really hated that last Summer I couldn't walk around in a tank top and shorts and be comfortable... Well...I get to do that here but my legs end up getting covered anyway.. By bug bites! But wait! There's more! On top of that, all the bites I thought I got this weekend on our hike, well, I've discovered it's actually poison oak. Don't mind me.. I'll just be over here trying not to scratch! 🀞

@milezofadventures and I decided to get out and go for a hike this weekend. It was a little different than hiking almost anywhere we've been through our travels. It was certainly nice to have the opportunity to get lost in some foliage, but I have never been swarmed so bad with mosquitos in my life! 🌱
I killed at least 10 that landed on me and today I'm dealing with much more bites than I realized (ex. 14 on just my right leg)! I'm REALLY hoping they are just bites and not poison oak/ivy. 🀞
On a positive note... It helped me run faster as we exited the area! Lol

What I wish @milezofadventures and I were doing this weekend....πŸ•οΈ
.
Don't get me wrong! I adore the beautiful beaches that are close to our house.. But oh how I miss being able to drive a short distance and get completely lost in nature! @nashvilletn (and #Tennessee in general) actually offered a lot more than I realized until I completely moved away! Though this shot was taken just outside of @grandtetonnps a couple years ago. TAKE ME BACK! 😭😭😭😭

This #throwbackthursday sunflower shot comes from 2007 in a tiny town in Tennessee. Sunflowers really are amazing to look at. So many tiny details and they always look for the sunshine, regardless of what might be going on around them. I really do want to be more like a sunflower. I want to spread seeds of happiness. I want to always look for the sunshine in my day. Finally, I want to always hold my head high! β˜€οΈπŸŒ»β˜€οΈ #glitterglassesjourney #glitterfiedinspiration #natureteaches

I'm so glad I was able toΒ DESTROY MY SWEATER when we moved to Florida where it finally FEELS LIKE SUMMER. My PINK TRIANGLE sister @emilyallen420 called and asked that I leave my ISLAND IN THE SUN to go visit her for a few days in New Orleans so we could go see NO THERE IS NO OTHER ONE than Weezer! "SAY IT AIN'T SO!" you might find yourself saying, but @milezofadventures said, "IT'S GONNA HURT WHEN YOU DESERT ME!" I assured him I'd be BACK, BACK TO THE SHACK, because after a few days in EL SCORCHO it'll be time I get BACK TO THE GOOD LIFE. I had my PORK AND BEANS and got on the road. While I drove I thought, "ONLY IN DREAMS would Weezer play all of my favorite songs in the same night...", well......IT'S IN THE PHOTOGRAPH!!! ↔️ #glitterglassesjourney #sistertime #fifthtime #weezer #iloveweezer #weezerlyrics .

Before I saw this photo: "Yes! I am strong! I feel powerful! And that sunset... It's gorgeous! I am so very happy and grateful to be in this moment!"πŸ˜„
.
After seeing the photo: "Ew. Look at those fat rolls! So much for working out, I'm not seeing any difference. Why am I so chubby? There's no way I'm going to post THAT photo." πŸ˜₯
.
And just like that my content, happy mood changed. Just from that little bit of negative self talk my entire outlook on the beautiful sunset changed. 
Lately I've been really trying to work at shifting my perspective of myself. I'm always talking about seeing your situation in a different light {aka putting on those glitter glasses} but I've failed to do just that with my own body. I'm constantly body shaming myself. Feeling inadequate. No matter how hard I work, I still feel like it's never enough.

Well.

I'm posting this picture today to try to help with that. Because it was a beautiful sunset and I am proud of the fact I could stabilize my body into this yoga pose. Several years ago I couldn't! It might not be the most graceful and I might not be the most fit, but this is me. This is where I'm at in life. And I'm happy to be alive and able to continually work to build strength. I've come a long way and I have a long way to go, but I'm proud.

You know that feeling after you've made a decision but before you've fully jumped in? That moment between jumping and actually doing? That millisecond right before you hit the water?? That rush of adrenaline, fear, and excitement?? That's kind of where I am at the moment. I'm taking some leaps with some of my side hustle jobs and also made the crazy decision that I wanted to train to run a half marathon! Both seem terrifying to me at the moment. I often feel like I'm not good enough or smart enough or fit enough to attain them, but that's exactly why I'm doing it. 🀞🀞 I make a big splash! πŸ“Έ: This awesome shot is of my sister @emilyallen420 back in 2005. I recently found some of my older photography and am pretty impressed with the quality of the images given the older equipment I had!

You know that feeling after you've made a decision but before you've fully jumped in? That moment between jumping and actually doing? That millisecond right before you hit the water?? That rush of adrenaline, fear, and excitement?? That's kind of where I am at the moment. I'm taking some leaps with some of my side hustle jobs and also made the crazy decision that I wanted to train to run a half marathon! Both seem terrifying to me at the moment.

Today's #sisterhoodsagashoutout goes to the one and only @abbykraftmac. To the girl that taught me that it's ok to eat dessert first, to not fear speaking my mind, and to be honest no matter how hard it might be. This one's for you!
πŸ’œ
This girl has grown so much since we met and has been nothing but inspiring along the way. I asked her to share a small part of her story...
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 
I first met Lizzy at the @wanderlustfest Snowshoe 2015. I was in a pretty dark place in my life- lost, in an unhealthy relationship, had an eating disorder, etc. Wanderlust and meeting some truly inspiring women started me on the path to healing and getting back to my roots. My truest self. Two months after Wanderlust, I moved to San Francisco to attend seminary! Unfortunately for seminary, I met my husband and decided my real calling was to be a wife and mama. We were married less than a year later and pregnant two months after! 
Fast forward to the present...
β€’ My husband is in seminary and I am now mama to my amazing 4 month old daughter, Hadley, who is teaching me so much. Β Lately, I have been thinking a lot about body image and how the words I say about myself will shape how she thinks about herself. My journey to become myself and grow continues each day. β€’ I also want her to grow up to be HEALTHY and safe, which is why I have just begun a crazy wonderful adventure as an advocate for safer beauty products for everyone. Whole body health and wellness for future generations starts now & starts with us! β€’ I have also made a commitment to myself and my network to always be deeply honest about the challenges of motherhood. There is so much β€œno one told me” and I do my best to share even the yucky parts of motherhood, because it is not all sunshine and rainbows! 
All of these paths I weave together stem from being surrounded by strong, diverse, multi-faceted women who help me strive for deep authenticity. I am so thankful for Lizzy and so many others who continue to inspire me through their own journeys- no matter how different they may be from mine!
