Today I was happy and cracked a lot of good jokes that made people laugh and then the sun hit my face and I thought “wow this is my face and I love my face” and I mean c’mon!!! Isn’t that how it should always be? 🧚🏻‍♀️ • . . . . #bellingham #bham #bellinghome #washington #pnw #pnwonderland #pnwlife #explore #exploremore #getoutside #ourpnw #upperleftusa #featureplace #livefolk #greatnorthwest #pnwdiscovered #justpnw #thenwadventure #nwadventure #cascadiaexplored #iphonephotography #photography #selfie

I’ve heard the song Soak Up the Sun probably 76,000 times, but this morning on my way to work when it came on the radio and @sherylcrow sang “It’s not having what you want, it’s wanting what you've got” damn that shit got stuck in my brain. It’s powering me through today, reminding myself to want what I’ve already got. 🌤 • . . . . #bellingham #bham #bellinghome #washington #pnw #pnwonderland #pnwlife #explore #exploremore #getoutside #ourpnw #upperleftusa #featureplace #livefolk #greatnorthwest #pnwdiscovered #justpnw #thenwadventure #nwadventure #cascadiaexplored #iphonephotography #photography #sherylcrow #bluesky #water

Taking it back to that one time FIVE YEARS AGO when @taylordurnil needed a roommate and convinced me to move to Bellingham. 1,825 days, 10 roommates, 5 jobs, 4 houses, some good love, some bad love, some happy, some sad, and all the things in between...I wouldn’t trade these years for anything. 🥰 #fbf . . . . #bellingham #bham #bellinghome #washington #pnw #pnwonderland #pnwlife #explore #exploremore #getoutside #ourpnw #upperleftusa #featureplace #livefolk #greatnorthwest #pnwdiscovered #justpnw #thenwadventure #nwadventure #cascadiaexplored #iphonephotography #photography

Had I been born on the grassy plains, or among the red towers of the desert, would my soul still sing when I entered an Olympic rainforest? Would towering trees welcome me home if I spent my childhood on a sandy beach buttered by sunshine instead of delicately scrambling over the oyster-built shores of Hood Canal? Did this state’s wild places form me into the woman I am today? Or am I one of the oh-so-lucky ones who happened to be born exactly where they were meant to be? ⁣ .⁣ Tell me, did you leave your hometown and discover your happiest place is somewhere else entirely from where you grew up? Or is the place of your childhood always where your soul sings? Did your wild places shape you? Or did you go on a journey to find the wild places you knew you were meant to be in? ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #wishyouwerenorthwest #pnwmoods #justpnw #wanderwashington #pnw #pnwonderland #keepitwild #neverstopexploring #nrthwst #themoderndayexplorer #northwestcreatives #thatpnwlife #forceofnature #adventureculture #throughthepines #optoutside #campingcollective #adventurethatislife #folkgood #wearethewild #wildernessculture #seeyououtthere #forgeyourownpath #visualscollective #upperleftusa #beautifuldestinations #livefolk #earthoutdoors #alphacollective #exploretocreate at Olympic National Park

The Art Of Love ••🌿•• 03-16-19 I remember thinking there was a time when I didn’t love you. But how could I have never loved you? When each night and day I would think of you, I didn’t know you or the shape of your face or the shape of your heart or the shape we would take, I just knew that I needed stable and honest and true. And one day when I would least expect it, I would meet you and I would finally know you and in the days to follow I would remember everything about you and I’d know exactly the direction to trace your freckles, like paint by number. For months (and years) we’d be painted red, full of passion and wine, and my god I loved that color on you. And just like I dreamt, you would love me true and open me up honest and my heartbeat would finally stay stable. But our glasses ran dry and we could only refill for so long before the bottle went empty. And sometimes the bottle broke and the red wouldn’t mean passion, it would mean breaking and bleeding. So, now we were blue and I was learning about the shape of this grieving, still tracing your freckles, like paint by number but more water colored now. One day we won’t know each other, but we will still be green together. Green like the ferns that cover the state in which we learned to love, growing through the dirt and near the trees, through all the seasons. And like the ferns, so green, we will keep the reverie and we will find new love. We will find big love. We will find yellow love. We will hang on a wall that I learned to paint like the forest and we will have a secret bond, rooted deep, and no one will know that I ever thought I didn’t love you. • . . . . #bellingham #bham #bellinghome #washington #pnw #pnwonderland #pnwlife #explore #exploremore #getoutside #ourpnw #upperleftusa #featureplace #livefolk #greatnorthwest #pnwdiscovered #justpnw #thenwadventure #nwadventure #cascadiaexplored #iphonephotography #photography #love #dating #writing #prose #writersofinstagram #shewrites #writingcommunity #fern

I loved fat biking last weekend and I think there will be mountain biking in my future. 🤩 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The only problem is, I’m terrible at judging how fast I can take corners going downhill! Falling isn’t a problem when you have 3 feet of powder to catch you, but I’m thinking mountain biking will hurt more. 😬 at Winthrop, Washington

“People get into a heavy-duty sin and guilt trip, feeling that if things are going wrong, that means that they did something bad and they are being punished. That’s not the idea at all. The idea of karma is that you continually get the teachings that you need to open your heart. To the degree that you didn’t understand in the past how to stop protecting your soft spot, how to stop armoring your heart, you’re given this gift of teachings in the form of your life, to give you everything you need to open further.” -Pema Chodron • . . . . #bellingham #bham #bellinghome #washington #pnw #pnwonderland #pnwlife #explore #exploremore #getoutside #ourpnw #upperleftusa #featureplace #livefolk #greatnorthwest #pnwdiscovered #justpnw #thenwadventure #nwadventure #cascadiaexplored #iphonephotography #photography #karma #quote

Familiarity In glasses of wine And the ocean And light gray sheets And warm rooms And The Cranberries And tears On my cheeks On your cheeks Familiarity in your lips On my lips In flannels In cars On winding roads Familiarity In all the clarity the sky gives me now • . . . . . #bellingham #bham #bellinghome #washington #pnw #pnwonderland #pnwlife #explore #exploremore #getoutside #ourpnw #upperleftusa #featureplace #livefolk #greatnorthwest #pnwdiscovered #justpnw #thenwadventure #nwadventure #cascadiaexplored #iphonephotography #photography #love #dating #writing #prose #writersofinstagram #shewrites #writingcommunity

First Love: Population, What If •• March 2, 2019 Sometimes I miss you, I don’t know what I miss, or why I miss you. But I can remember the way you smelled like old spice deodorant and weed, and sometimes I even miss that. My heart opened for you and it has been open and waiting and yearning and wishing for everything that could ever be lovely, ever since. I think a lot about what could have been and maybe that’s where I dwell the most, in the what if’s. I think maybe that’s where I live sometimes. Have you been there? Even just for a visit? Have you ever wondered where we would be and who we would be and all we almost created? Because those are the things that populate my mind, in a place called What If, in a place I mistake for home. I have gone back time and time again, to the house that built me, and I look out the window and I wonder if this is all I’ll ever miss. You are my first love, but certainly not my last. You are my foundation. You are my beams, hard to hammer a nail into because in so many ways, you broke me. You broke me after you built me. I have had to rebuild it all, from the ground up, but that’s okay. Because every time I build a wall, I expand this space. I hammer a nail, I tighten my grip, I watch myself build my cabin, tongue and groove. And in the woods where my cabin is, much like where I learned to love, the service is low and the feelings are real and the river is flowing and I am dreaming. • . . . . . #bellingham #bham #bellinghome #washington #pnw #pnwonderland #pnwlife #explore #exploremore #getoutside #ourpnw #upperleftusa #featureplace #livefolk #greatnorthwest #pnwdiscovered #justpnw #thenwadventure #nwadventure #cascadiaexplored #iphonephotography #photography #love #dating #writing #prose #writersofinstagram #shewrites #writingcommunity!

Longing for summer and my trip spent in Alaska with family and to feel less cold and lonely and sad. But woah, as I typed this (aka tried to be poetic lol) Alaska by Maggie Rogers came on in my car. I guess there it is, that’s the poetry - a song coming on when you don’t choose it or expect it or have forgotten it, but somehow the universe (or Spotify) knows that your heart needs it. That’s it. That’s the feeling. . . . . ••• #bellingham #bham #washington #pnw #pnwonderland #pnwlife #explore #exploremore #getoutside #ourpnw #upperleftusa #featureplace #livefolk #greatnorthwest #pnwdiscovered #justpnw #thenwadventure #nwadventure #cascadiaexplored #iphonephotography #photography #alaska #ketchikan
