This is why the Rainier Watch community exists! Those days when The Mountain is out in full glory are so amazing and they never ever get old. Also please be safe when Rainier watching, we did confirm this photo was taken by the passenger. ♥️🏔️ | 📷 by @hannah.rankin#RainierWatch .
Sometimes we need to change our perspective. I've been struggling with some things and a friend reminded me of that. Reminded me of who I am and why who I am is okay just the way I am. Going through some pictures and this set of them seemed fitting.
I can look at the picture and see this crazy lady laying on the ground or I can remember why she was there and see the other side - the bigger perspective.
The first picture isn't perfect - the colors aren't vivid or lines perfectly angled but it was about the other side of the camera (pictures 2&3) and the day was fun. This story is a throwback to last summer when my friend Laura @littlehousebigalaska and I took a road trip through @visitwashingtonstate.
We stopped for a picnic and to take pictures of the gorgeous old trees in a park during our @visitenumclaw leg. (Swipe for pictures of those trees.) We marveled at how old the trees were and how they were so huge it was hard to get a good picture even from laying on the ground shooting upward.
We laughed and arranged food for a photo shoot before we ate our picnic, laughing out how neuroticly we do this thing we call "work" and how it felt so easy having someone who "got it" instead of family hovering to ravenously descend upon the food with total lack of appreciation for beautiful food styling.
And that feeling right there. That feeling that some one "gets" who you are and it's ok. That's friendship. It's having the hard conversations. It's laughing together. It's quiet together. It's doing life together.
