Coming up quick on 38 and feeling ok with it. I’ve got gray hairs that luckily blend in, I’ve got tired joints and I can’t sit on my knees anymore, I care a tiny bit more than I used to about politics- a teeeeeny tiny bit more, and I am making responsible decisions like not buying all the yoga pants all the time. I feel pretty good looking back on my life and I feel excited looking forward to where I’m going. And I’m extremely grateful when I breathe it all in and focus on the present. I fight it a lot, wanting the future that is just out of reach. But I’m finding happiness these days in just placing one foot in front of the other and living day by day. So it’s two more weeks of seeing what 37 has in store for me and then on to 38 like an adult. Cuz I actually am starting to feel like one. .

Faith always conquers fear.
Faith shines light in darkness.
It empowers, strengthens, awakens, rescues, calms, sustains and repairs. I am trying to trust and grow and follow when I really just want to shrink and hide in my room. So it’s on repeat.
Faith always conquers fear.
Faith shines light in to darkness.
Faith moves mountains.
Where snakes live. Wind direction. Leave no trace. Sharing. Flowers and poky plants. Don’t put sticks in moms eye when she is carrying you up a mountain. #outdoorschool
There is nothing like a quick trip to the mountains to heal hearts, and to strengthen resolve and friendships. .
Remember that when you help another up a mountain you are a little closer to the top yourself. -Thomas S. Monson
Today is National Womens Health and Fitness day 🙌🏻. And I can’t help but be grateful for all the women in my life that help make any of my adventures possible and fuel my motivation. My mom and sisters who are always willing to watch my kids while I am away. Friends who know just when I need an hour of sunshine to recharge. Women who teach me how to be strong from the inside out and women who push me to be stronger from the outside in. And a daughter who watches my every move and I hope gets some of her confidence from that. Movement is my meditation, my therapy and a place I can always feel myself. So thank you to everyone of you that has helped or inspired me along the way. ✌🏻🖤☀️

Special delivery from my favorite 4 year old who stopped his bike in its tracks to pick flowers out of the neighbors garbage for me. (they trimmed their bushes and the branches were overflowing out of the garbage can on the street). But it made my day to see him running up with handfuls of blossoms and a big smile on his face and saying here you go mama I love you!
Sometimes I don’t take the moment to lift another because it feels like I need to make a grand gesture to find the perfect way to say I love you friend,I am thinking about you. Sometimes I lack the courage to get out of my own way to say hello friend hope you are doing ok. But it’s been on my heart to do more, say more and spread more kindness. So I am starting here. Hello friends I love you. I hope you are doing ok.
💔. Currently searching for a full face helmets and elbow pads for this kid. :: Cuz I was flying Mom. I was flying like a bird and I was having fun. But I won’t go on that big huge one again. Not until I’m big::

Did you read about the hikers that got trapped overnight in the Eagle Creek fire? So yeah, I decided I needed to be a little more prepared when I head to the mountains. I added a water filter, fire starter/compass, my headlamp and an emergency blanket to my pack. I also restocked some other essentials like the pee pocket. It's seriously awesome 😹. And can I just tell you I am in love with my @ospreypacks Dyna6 pack. I used it at Ragnar and day hiking in Seven Devils. It doesn't move at all when I run and it holds everything I need including an extra layer and did I mention it's a hydration pack? It wears more like a vest and the pockets on the front are my favorite since they keep my phone and snacks handy. It is srsly perfection. All I need now is the fires to go out so I can go on my next adventure and hopefully not use any of my survival gear.

Truthfully I ended up being overbooked this summer. I was lucky enough to have lots of amazing experiences but the way things got shifted and rescheduled ended up overwhelming all of us towards the end. Axel was a trooper through it all and totally deserved the $16 ferris wheel ride at the fair last night. It was his first time and that look on his face is worth every penny. His skipping and jumping and holding my hand the whole way there because 'mom I am so excited and happy!' 🤗
Gah. I can't stand how dang cute he is sometimes.
As much as I love big adventure , it's the little moments closer to home that tug at my heartstrings the most. .

I am hanging on to summer with a death grip. The fact that it's dark by 7:45 makes me want to cry in to my peach protein shake. .

We don't have weekends. It has been 9 years this month since we moved to Tri Cities. Which means it has basically been 9 years since we have had a weekend, but today we got lucky. Darin got to stay home with us ALL day. We ended up doing all of those things a family does on a 'normal' Saturday. We all went to the gym, did chores, sent Ivy off to a birthday party, took Axel to a car show, hit up Costco for samples and a cheap lunch, mowed the lawn...right down to a trip to the hardware store for a quick honey do project. It was weird and awesome and kinda funny that being 'normal' seemed like such a big deal. We are busy and work hard and we love the craziness that is our normal. But getting a chance to have two days together at home in a row to have a good old fashioned weekend will be one of my favorite memories from this summer.

I don't know what I thought meeting a gold medalist would be like but my favorite part was when she pulled her medal from the drawer in her kitchen 🤣. #sochill
We had a fun time in PDX hanging out with @recorefitness and @gwenjorgensen yesterday. Side note...brand new babies are the perfect wall sit weight.

I am practically in tears thinking about the Columbia Gorge burning. I have driven through it hundreds of times in my life. It is a part of my history, so many of my memories , my adventures and my heart. Axel and I hiked up Multnomah Falls and Eagle Creek earlier this summer while Darin and Ivy were on their bikepacking trip through the Gorge. It seemed like such a small adventure then, one we've done a few times, not even a blip on Instagram lol. But somehow, now it seems so big because that gorgeous place is up in flame and won't ever be the same. Praying for rain and for those firefighters working so hard to save it so we can have many more adventures in one of the most beautiful wonders of the world.

Trying to relax and enjoy an unexpected pause.
Nope, it's not a cool story, and yes I roll my eyes every time I think about it. I'm just glad it came at the end of summer and not the middle. But on the bright side my shoulder feels awesome, house is really clean, the laundry is completely done, and I have time to do something with all the zucchini @shannonsnovella keeps giving me.
