it’s nice to go for a casual sunday run again. without the pressure of sticking to a training plan, i took the opportunity to just stop part way through and enjoy the fresh fall air and the last of the leaves 🍂 #runhappy
The sun is now setting before 5pm every day until #wintersolstice. 😭 To be honest though, I love this time of year. I love slowing down, cozying up, and watching nature change her colors for the winter. Having grown up closer to the equator, I never saw these changes so dramatically before. I certainly learned to see the change of seasons in Florida, but it was different, more subtle. Here in the North, winter is an occasion, a ritual, a whole new adventure. And every year, I get excited for it all over again. 😊

I am so incredibly lucky and grateful to have this man as my partner. A year ago we bought our first house together. It needed some love. I brought up remodeling the kitchen. Two months later Benji spent every moment he had in between working a full time job to do just that.
He set a goal to complete it in a month. He did it. Yesterday we laid subway tile backsplash in our kitchen. The final piece to pull my dreams into reality. Today we grout and seal it. What a pain in the ass!
None of this is easy. He completed most of the work while I was there being his cheerleader through the curse words and frustrations.
I continue fall more in love with you. Every time I ask for something to be done, you figure out a way to make it happen. I admire your determination, follow through, and hard work.
I can’t wait to have a photo shoot in our new, complete kitchen when it’s all done.
So blessed and grateful to walk this life with you babe❤️ Photo snapped by @_eva_louise_ this summer in Washington
Spending this weekend appreciating the beauty and safety of my surroundings.
What an emotional week it has been for this country; a mix of triumphant highs, followed by such devastating lows.
But if there’s one thing I’ve learned from living here over the past two years, it’s that Americans are resilient.
Let’s practice a deeper sense of gratitude today, and all of the days that follow for the things we CAN control, and for the things we CAN (and will) change.
“I am losing precious days. I am degenerating into a machine for making money. I am learning nothing in this trivial world of men. I must break away and get out into the mountains to learn the news”-John Muir
Nothing expresses my current feelings better than this right now-the other day I talked to my psychologist about how I feel stuck in this world, everyone just trained to function neatlessly and losing touch of what really matters in life-becoming increasingly disconnected and distant...and so Im observing all these ants working and it makes me sometimes sad to realize that Im just another ant in a big haystack. So let hs break free every once in a while to revisualize what really matters in life and problems become comparably smaller matters in such a big world 🌎 .
Had to re-repost this one!
Seriously wish I were diving into an alpine lake like this one right now!🧜🏼♀️✨🏔 anyone else?
