Unfortunately for us, it was too late in the season to ice climb this beast, and it was too early in the season to zip line it.
Instead, we quickly walked around and took some photos then retreated to the car to shield ourselves from the insanely cold and strong wind.
National park advice: Walk the extra steps, start early. Do the research but don’t do too much research. Read every exhibit in the visitor center. Leave leftover tacos in the car so they’re waiting for you post-hike. Drive down the service roads. Rent a car with four wheel drive, even if you don’t figure out how to turn it on until the last day (oops). Go to the shit you’ve seen a million times on Instagram because I promise you no person has ever been able to accurately translate the grandeur of it all into a photo.
This is the best after work stress relief I've been able to find so far. Luckily I can walk right out of my house and be up here to watch the sunset in about 45 minutes. Find a place you love, love the place you live ✌

Momlife ☀️💪🏻☕️ 🚲🙏 .
I had NO idea I’d love being a mom, let alone a home educator to four children (including twins 😳). I wasn’t raised with a vision for mothering—at all. When I met my husband, I was the classic overachiever, a tightly wound straight-A student preparing to go to law school. Haha! .
Well, friends, life is cool, isn’t it? Embrace the twists and turns. Have the courage to challenge your beliefs. And enjoy the adventure. I wouldn’t change a thing. Write your own story. #bestjobever#wildandfree
I’M SERIOUSLY LOVING LIFE TODAY 🙌🏼🙌🏼 I got into the Master’s course I wanted which means I actually know what I’m going to be doing with my life next year after graduating and I also hit 50k a few days ago which has been a goal of mine for so long now!!! So thank you to everyone who has been supporting me! ✈

The perfect company for this rainy spring day here in Utah... our wood-fired LONDON FOG ☁️ made with Trader Joe's loose-leaf Earl Grey de la Creme black tea blend, a mason jar whipped cream topping filled with our vanilla sugar and topped with calming lavender. You can sip this soothing beverage without mixing in the cream to give a lovely contrast between the earthy bergamot flavored black tea and the sweet cream or you can give it a stir and make the whole drink a bit sweet. Recipe in bio!

I’ve crossed the international dateline three times in a week and keep repeating days / getting confused about the construct of time. So, happy #throwbackthursday x2. Life is good.
When people ask me if we “do school” on the road, the short answer is, “Of course we do schoolwork. The kids take math worksheets, and they read a lot. A LOT.”
. ❓But it’s really the wrong question because we are more interested in education than schoolwork. .
. 💡 And you get a pretty good education in history, geography, science, critical thinking and life skills when you’re climbing up the side of a rock in Red Rock Canyon or taking a cave tour in Wind Cave National Park, watching Old Faithful blow at Yellowstone, ordering fry bread from a food truck on the Navajo Reservation, or viewing elephant seals—mating—in San Simeon, California. (Now that was a lively discussion. “Why did he bite her, Mom?” 🤦🏻♀️). .
📚 And let’s not forget language skills. At Grand Teton National Park, my kids learned that “teton” means breast. What could be more valuable than that? 😉 .
⛰ I’m being lighthearted here because we’ve been doing this so long now (27 national parks, a ton of monuments, museums, and historical sites, along with more roadside toilets than you care to hear about), and I’ve seen the fruit. Learning can happen anywhere (rarely in a chair, though, if you have young boys 😅). .
🍎 Takeaways? Rethink learning. Educate the whole child. Movement matters. Create lifelong students. Live engaged, with passion and curiosity. Find joy in your “work” because life is short. #lifeisaclassroom#runwild#livefree
Trying to photograph the stunning view from an abandoned hotel ✨
Five months later and I finally got outside and instantly felt better. Never letting that much time go by again. // Spent the last 36 hours romping through the snow in Tahoe with my best @chelseadier. Only shot film while I was there (duh), so instead here’s film from one year ago also in Tahoe also with Chelsea when we snowshoed four miles uphill in a blizzard to sleep in a hut.
A quick 36 hours in Tahoe was just what we both needed!!
Snow ✔️ hike ✔️ hot tub in the snow/rain ✔️ the “great indoors” hotel room ✔️ drive along the lake ✔️ cheeseburgers ✔️✔️
We both get real antsy if we haven’t ‘outdoorsed’ in a while, so now we’re refreshed and ready to make the best of our weeks and motivated to crush it! Right Linds?! 😘
What a wild wild world.
As we prepare for the fourth nor'easter of the month here in New England, I am remembering this recent warm and sunny day with fondness. I just put on a down coat over another down coat to walk two blocks. So. I'm ready for summer.
A week ago I met this gorgeous building...and I don’t think I‘ve been the same since 😉 #zwinger
Campfire, soft boiled, pasture-raised eggs topped with chives, flowering thyme, red chili flake & sea salt. Sourdough toast soldiers lathered in @kerrygoldirl butter & red Belgian endive for dipping. And we’ve got a rooibos lavender tea to wash it all down. Happy Spring Equinox! 🐣

One of the things I love most about these pieces is the impossibility of them. How can this swath of paint be simultaneously behind the buildings in the background but in front of the railing at the top of the stairs?
Even more than that, I love that it doesn’t matter, because there are no rules in imagination. ✨
In which city would you want to pour a giant wall of paint, and what color would it be? 🎨 🌃
Also P.S. I want to make this an installation one day like for real. Paris mayor hit me up 📞 s’il vous plaît 🙏😜. #parisjetaime❤️

You can definitely tell when I have more uni work on when I don’t post on Insta for ages (think my last post was in Feb, OOPS)
But here’s a throwback to the epic snow we had a couple weeks ago because I have been so overwhelmed by dissertation stuff to have actually posted it in real time (also, UK peeps, as anyone else seen we might get more snow this weekend?!)
While I was in London visiting my sister I finally made it down to the beautiful @saintaymeschocolates to see if blanketed in beautiful white snow. I can definitely see why it’s the new fav on Instagram at the moment!
What have you guys been up to while I’ve taken my little hiatus?

Find the best capture of all that ice is part of a trip to Iceland!
A year ago I was at this fantastic and unclassifiable place ! I had to go back a 3rd time in April.
However I've been thinking and I changed my project and it will be for another year because I feel like in winter since September. With the snow to Zermatt and Chamonix, -20 - 30 c during my 6 weeks in Banff, our cold winter in Quebec and the jam of ice in the Lake outside my house right now. I want suddenly to see a bit of green landscape.🤢
A lot of people to gave me their choice on my black and white photo and one color. They are now in my story on the front page . You preferred a 65% the color photo.
💫✨ Trouver la meilleure capture de toute cette glace fait parti d’un voyage en Islande .
Il y a déjà un an j’étais à cet endroit fantastique et inclassable ! Je devais y retourner une 3e fois en avril .
Cependant j’ai beaucoup réfléchi et j’ai changé d’idée et ce sera une autre année car j’ai l’impression d’être en hiver depuis septembre avec la neige à Zermatt et Chamonix , -30 durant mes 6 semaines à Banff , notre froid hiver au Québec et l’embâcle de glace dans le lac devant chez moi présentement .
J’ai besoin de voir des paysages plus verts comme le Tyrol .
Vous avez été très nombreux à me donner votre choix sur ma photo noir et blanc et celle en couleurs . Elles sont maintenant dans mes story à la une . Vous avez préféré à 65% la photo en couleur .
