Don't "clean up" your garden or yard this fall, and don't rake those leaves until spring!
That's right, I'm giving you an excuse to kick back this weekend and put your feet up!
Dead, woody stems provide over-wintering habitat for our native bees and the seeds are highly prized by migrating and resident birds alike. Leaf litter provides important habitat for overwintering butterflies and moths, beneficial garden bugs, and much more. #ThePersonalEcologist

Being silly, kissy faces and lots of giggles.
Love my little guy so much! 🤗😚💕 #blessed
Waited way too long for the #cloudshadows in the foreground to move out of frame. The #fallcolors aren’t quite as gone by in the southern half of the state. This was up above Jackson at my dad’s newly acquired hunting plot.

These are the best years of our lives 🎶
I couldn’t possibly be filled with more gratitude than I am in this exact moment. Just when I think things couldn’t get better, they absolutely do. Thankful for such an incredible boyfriend who treats me like a literal queen (legit everyday, but especially during my birthday weekend). And thankful for all of YOU for all of the birthday love. This weekend was an autumn dream 👻🍂🍁
25 was good to me, really really good to me. But I have a feeling that 26 is going to be my best year yet. Still the same old me, just practicing a new found sense of grace since I no longer have health insurance ✌🏼
Okay, so today was incredible!!! —— Nothing beats putting a crap ton of inspirational women who support, encourages, respects, pushes, &empower each other alllll in the same room! —— It’s insane how powerful it truly is! 👊🏻💥 —— I was blown away by the amount of energy that filled the room today at our company’s Super Saturday event. Learned lots of great nuggets to start implementing & I can’t wait to share with my team of boss babes!! Not on my team yet? No worries, there’s plenty of room for ya 😚 —— With that being said,
I am so so so grateful for the woman who adopted me to her team. @ktmeserve you have become one of my dearest friends! To think I wouldn’t have you or these influential ladies in my life if it weren’t for this amazing opportunity..is still mind blowing! 🤯🤪🤗🤗 —— Thank you for always believing in me and giving me and my girls a shoulder to laugh or cry on 🤪😚 —— #blessed
I haven't been taking care of myself. Not in the best way I know how like I promised myself I would. So there's been less energy for sharing and being creative. I often feel like I have all these great ideas and plans in life, but implementation gets haulted. I often feel so close to figuring everything out, but struggle hard trying to process everything. It's like my mind is so busy and creative but it's difficult to organize and make a plan. Does that make sense to anyone? Just some random thoughts to accompany #randomassyogapicsaturday with @themuscleboundyogi & @8rocknrollyogi8 to break up weekend ads! #random#yoga#yogalove
When do I drink my Shakeology?
Depends on the day!
Today I did my workout in the morning, instead of my usual afternoon workout.
So this morning my Shakeology is coming as a post workout shake and a quick breakfast.
Yesterday, I made “ice cream” as a late night snack before bed.
This shake shown here is Vanilla Vegan Shakeology, 1 cup coconut milk, 1/2 cup frozen mango, 1/2 cup frozen pineapple, and I’m a sweet tooth so I added a tablespoon of cheesecake sugar free pudding mix. There’s no shame in my sweet tooth game. I sprinkled some coconut on top for visual effect. 🍍 🥥 🌴
**all measurements estimated because I’m not into actually measuring my ingredients. 🤓
There’s something really pleasing about the lines in a hay field in the fall. Even more pleasing that this and the previous two shots were all taken within about 100ft of one another. Maybe I’ll get a chance to pop up today between hunts. #youthday#deerhuntingseason
🕸"Hallowed Habitat"🕸 Part 3: Wise up for Owls!🦉🦉 [Here I am releasing a banded Saw-whet Owl in 2014.⬇️😁💖 ]
Owls are powerful predators and are uniquely designed for nocturnal hunting. We have 11 species of owls in Maine and they all need small mammals, insects, amphibians, and other prey to sustain them.
You can provide good nesting and hunting habitat for our owls in a variety of ways. Read my blog post to learn how. Link in profile.
Also check out Part 1 & 2 on Orb-weavers (spiders), too!
I'm incredibly close to having my Maine Beanie pattern finished! It will be listed for sale on my #etsy shop when it's ready and would be a great beginner tapestry crochet project! So where are all my #mainer#crochetersofinsta 🌲
Just sitting on my floor in my Jammies, taking selfies and cheesn’ hard. Tomorrow I’m going to my companies coaching quarterly event where I’m going to meet women from my team that I have never meet before in person!! Legit CRAZY! We met on the internet! I feel like I know them already and I love them so much ❤️❤️ I already warned them, they need to tell me ahead of time if they aren’t hug people 😬🤣 Because I’m going to squeeze the shit out of each and everyone one of them!! We are a true team and I’m so proud of each of these beautiful women ❤️ Swipe over to meet them!
We are going to miss you and love you all too @jaime_lanfranconi@jessmay_wilson and @sammi_archie
PS: YOU can join us anytime! JS 😘
Have I mentioned how much I love #tinyislands? This one is found in Long Pond not far from the @amcmaine Gorman Chairback Lodge. That’s Whitecap Mountain in the distance. The wind stayed calm just long enough to grab this glassy #reflection_shotz
Went out to Spectacle Ponds last night at sunset hoping to get some cloud reflections. Was not disappointed. I love how the reflection on the left follows the curve of the shore. Tried several different options to crop this portrait, but it just didn’t work. I’ll get used to landscape again... eventually.
Well, it’s the first day of Fall and soon all the green will be gone. Looking forward to foliage, cooler temps, and bird season!! Hopefully the wind will chill out today and I get the #mavic2pro in the air. It’s been almost a week! 👎☹️🤞
