//// Valentine •••• 02-14-19 //// I have never truly cared about Valentine’s Day and I especially don’t care about the gifts. I don’t knock anyone who does because it’s nice to feel appreciated. Though after a week of heartache, tonight felt like magic. I was surprised with flowers and chocolate and treated to a wonderful dinner with a man who even went as far as making reservations for us. This was all from a man I barely know yet and I didn’t ask him to do any of it, he just did it, for me. I imagined tonight would be me loving my wine on the couch and that’s all. This time last year I was dating someone I thought I loved so deeply, so much that I thought he put every star in the sky. That guy, the one I loved so much, didn’t do a single thing for me on Valentine’s Day - he didn’t even give me a card. And I remember my dad telling me that was something I should take note of because I deserved more than nothing from someone I was dating, someone I loved should have wanted to do more for me. I defended my old love, saying it’s not about the gifts, that we just needed each other. And that’s true, but I was only taking my dad’s words at face value, as if he was telling me that all I deserved was a gift. That’s not what my dad meant and in retrospect I see that now. What he wanted was for me to feel appreciated and remembered and as special as he always made me feel. I let myself forget that I should feel that way. And despite what may or may not come of my lovely night with a person I hardly know, what a feeling it was to feel the way my father always makes me feel. Even if it wasn’t the same type of love. Because love doesn’t have to be feelings deep in your soul, love can just be honoring a person who deserves it and we all deserve it. I am reminded today that even when we think we have the love we think we deserve, sometimes we deserve so much more. And sometimes one rose and a reservation from a stranger is all it takes to remind ourselves that we are worthy of far more than nothing.

"we are not born to die! what are you talking about; do you think a book begins just to finish? do you think a song opens with a beautiful chord just for it to end? you don’t read the book to finish it, you read the book to eat up the excitement and the emotions it evokes. to learn and to digest and to fall in love and be heartbroken. you listen to the song to dance and dance and sing your throat raw. to cry and smile and swell with the harmonies. yes, we are born with the inevitable fate of death, we are mortal after all, but that is merely the finale of the play; the final act, the closing of the curtains. we are not born to take a bow and exit stage left; we are born to love and be joyous and yell and move and learn and cry and feel, feel, feel! we are not born to die, silly, we’re born to live." —beetlegarden.tumblr.com . . . #pnw #pnwonderland #washingtonstate #washington #washingtonexplored #mtsthelens #nature #nwadventure #northwestisbest #pacificnorthwest @washingtonexplored @wander_washington @washingtontrails @pnwpride @pnwisbeautiful @pnwonderland @thegreat_pnw @pnwdiscovered at Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument

//// For Grandma •••• 02-13-19 //// I bought a pack of paper towels on Monday, they were on sale, which is the only reason I threw them in my cart. This morning I opened them not knowing I had bought the extra soft kind, the paper towels without quilting, the kind you always had. I had never, in all my years on my own, grabbed them from any grocery store. And normally I would think what a silly thing to cry over, but not today. Not today when I am reminded that every small thing will have you all over it. Not since yesterday when my world shifted, giving grief a new meaning. I have known it before, this heartbreak caused by grieving, but this loss feels powerful and immeasurable and I am struggling to define it. How do you define the shocking and sudden loss of someone so loved and so needed? I don’t want to call it death because you shouldn’t be dead. The word dead is such a solid word, something you can’t take back, so permanent. I want you back, I want you here, I want to see every sunset with you. I want your soft freckled hands to hold me now, I want to stand next to you and feel tall again because right now I feel so small. I feel small amongst this mighty ache for you. The ache for a childhood loved and shared with you, songs sung sweetly by you, bellies filled with laughter and food homemade by you, everything made better because of you. Nothing will be quite the same, no more letters signed by you, no traditions carried on with you, but instead traditions carried on for you. The words I write won’t be seen by your eyes as you sit in a rocking chair, a cup of coffee beside you. Or maybe they will, maybe that is what your heaven looks like too. What a world we had, this heaven on earth, with you...and what a world it will be missing you, while you’re away. • . . . . . #bellingham #bham #bellinghome #washington #pnw #pnwonderland #pnwlife #ourpnw #upperleftusa #greatnorthwest #pnwdiscovered #justpnw #thenwadventure #nwadventure #cascadiaexplored #iphonephotography #photography #grief #healing #poetry #writing #prose #writersofinstagram #shewrites #writingcommunity #loss #grandma

“To love life, to love it even when you have no stomach for it and everything you’ve held dear crumbles like burnt paper in your hands, your throat filled with the silt of it. When grief sits with you, its tropical heat thickening the air, heavy as water more fit for gills than lungs; when grief weights you like your own flesh only more of it, an obesity of grief, you think, How can a body withstand this? Then you hold life like a face between your palms, a plain face, no charming smile, no violet eyes, and you say, yes, I will take you, I will love you, again.” -Ellen Bass, The Thing Is • . . . . . #bellingham #bham #bellinghome #washington #pnw #pnwonderland #pnwlife #ourpnw #upperleftusa #greatnorthwest #pnwdiscovered #justpnw #thenwadventure #nwadventure #cascadiaexplored #iphonephotography #photography #grief #healing #life #death #snow #february

° • Flicker Diggin' • ° Northern Flickers are large, brown woodpeckers with a gentle expression and handsome black-scalloped plumage. On walks, don’t be surprised if you scare one up from the ground. It’s not where you’d expect to find a woodpecker, but flickers eat mainly ants and beetles, digging for them with their unusual, slightly curved bill. When they fly you’ll see a flash of color in the wings – yellow if you’re in the East, red if you’re in the West – and a bright white flash on the rump. • • • Nikon D800e 300mm, f/5.6, 1/400sec, iso 1250 • • • #exploretocreate #nakedplanet #earthaddiction #bestoforegon #travelsouthernoregon #birds #woodpecker #flicker #oregon #nikon #capturedconcepts #nwadventure #earthporn #picoftheday #wildlifelover #wildlife #nikkor #fstopgear #manfrotto #gitzoinspires #usa #birdlife at Ashland, Oregon

The compare: 2019 vs 2015. I went to this same place twice. In 2015 (second picture), the ice cave was damaged so no cave anymore due to avalanche. I remembered how disappointed I was but still, it was beautiful to see all the huge ices on the ground. So I went again a couple weekend ago. Now you can see how massive it is in the first picture, but some stupid people climbed up above the cave (very dangerous) and the avalanche happened that the huge came was cover before we showed up. 🤦🏼‍♀️ How stupid people don't understand how dangerous it is to walk in the ice cave or even walk above the cave? Also, I’ve seen and heard about people slide there too?! • • • • • • • #picoftheday #instafollow #bestoftheday #nature #samileeadventure #pnwonderland #trengooutdoors #herpnwlife #compassoutdoors #vsco #explore #pnw #PNWdiscovered #upperleftusa #earthfocus #earthoutdoors #nwadventure #washingtontrails #washingtonexplored #stayandwander #earthoffical #earthoutdoors #pnwisbeautiful #trailseek #washington #northwestvibes #livepnw #onlyinwashington #pnwparaside #icecave at Mountain Loop Highway

/// Come Together •• 02-04-19 /// We met in August when the sun was hot and the air was thick, every ray burning my pale white skin. I remember the way your skin felt back then because it was as soft and as kissable as it was this afternoon. I remember the way I felt and the way you felt and the way we talked about how we both felt. It was day two or three, sometime too early to know how great we could be, but we both knew how great we would be. We said forever in that moment, as we lay naked together on your couch, talking about the records we would listen to and the ones we loved the most. Anything classic rock would do and that reminded me of my first love, so I thought maybe you’d be my last love, mirroring the first all the while proving that it could be so much better. But in the theme of all my love, the passion was fleeting. Well, maybe it was not as fleeting as I thought it to be. Because every time you’re holding me, kissing me, running your fingers through my hair, pushing your body into mine, it feels far from over and far from fleeting. I think of you when the music plays and I think that is what makes my heart burst bigger with you. Music is such a quintessential part of who I am and it is what holds me tight to my first love, it is what holds me tight to me, it is what holds me tight to you. I hear music and I think of you because together we are melodic, we sound as pleasant as we feel when our hands roam. You move around me in a way so rhythmic, our bodies beating together. It is winter and today was the first time I trusted myself to brave the snow. I was braving it to get to you and I had to turn all the music in my car down, to make sure I could hear every sound. I forgot the way the instruments and words came together when I was heading your way, but I knew the way it felt. And it felt just as good as it did when I left, staring at the naked trees, as naked and as honest and as whole and as true as we could be when we were coming together.

//// It Ain’t a Book ••• 02-03-19 //// I used to think that maybe one day I would write a book about all my experiences as a single girl, unafraid to use the internet to meet men. I never really got the thought on my own, at least not until everyone told me I should. To be fair, most of my dates were nothing to write home about, so instead I wrote my stories in the form of Facebook statuses. They were stories I could tell well, highlighting the funny inside the faults. Family & friends & strangers rode in with compliments as they read about the woes of my love life. But what is my love life? Is it anything at all? I don’t ask anyone that, not even the internet, though that’s where I keep looking for answers. By definition, a love life concerns a persons relationship with their lovers. Of course not all of the men I met became lovers, but also, of course some of them did. And of course some found the spot in the corner of my heart, gaping & waiting to be filled. Filled with something, someone, anything. Love is such a big, wild thing; the word, the feeling, the act. And a love life, to take something so gigantic & throw in the word life after it?! I guess it only makes sense that I lost myself in it, it is both a force to be reckoned with & a feeling I am rolling into even as I try to roll away. I can’t tell you why I seek validation in the form of love in the shape of men & I can’t pinpoint the moment when I started to. I have never sat down & asked that...not for any sort of avoidance. More so because I don’t think there was ever one exact second when I became the one who should write about all her experiences as a single girl, unafraid to use the internet to meet men. But in this second, these last few seconds, this is a moment. A moment that I have found, by my own definition, that I am bigger & wilder than any love life that makes me wobble, woe after woe. In this defining moment, I’d like to put on every wall that I don’t want to write that book because I’ve already written it. The funny doesn’t fill the void where there’s a big black hole that all the lovers in the whole world could come crawling out of. I wrote that, I wrote that & then the hole closed.

/// Don’t Pull It ••🧵•• 02-01-19 /// I haven’t written about you yet, not until now. I just never knew what to say. I never knew how to take what I felt and what I knew and sew them together into something eloquent. Sort of like the way you couldn’t figure out how to say anything to me, even after I was understanding, even after I was waiting. And though persistent, I was patient. Patient because I waited for you, just like we waited for each other. Just like I have been waiting for the words to come my way, ones not driven by a quick and passionately broken heart. Because how could I write about you, the one who let me down, how could I create something that wouldn’t let me down just the same? You were here and then you weren’t. That’s it. That’s all. You were here. And then I must have blinked because suddenly I missed you. Because you were here and then you weren’t. And I want to ask you, how could blinking drive a hole right through the whole of me? I think I knew, I think I knew that you would never speak, and I think that’s what drove it in. You were great until you weren’t. And I think, that most of all, I want to know you. I want to know that if, like me, you have a hole right through the whole of you. And I think that even if I knew you...the thread that briefly strung us together, the one you left me hanging on, would split at its ends. Never keeping us connected. I think I knew that all along. And I think that the words were held up because they tangled up in the way we unraveled. • . . . . . #bellingham #bham #bellinghome #washington #pnw #pnwonderland #pnwlife #ourpnw #upperleftusa #greatnorthwest #pnwdiscovered #justpnw #thenwadventure #nwadventure #cascadiaexplored #iphonephotography #photography #home #january #writing #prose #writersofinstagram #shewrites #writingcommunity #sunset

Fly Away | I used want to become a pilot. As grow up and still do, I always dream that I flyito ng. I did skydiving and rode on a flight many times - love every minute of it. The irony is I am afraid of height but I did it because I don't want to miss out the feelings I have once I get on a flight and put my head against the window to watch when the flight getting off. • • • • • • • #picoftheday #instafollow #bestoftheday #nature #samileeadventure #pnwonderland #trengooutdoors #herpnwlife #compassoutdoors #vsco #explore #pnw #PNWdiscovered #upperleftusa #earthfocus #earthoutdoors #nwadventure #washingtontrails #washingtonexplored #stayandwander #earthoffical #earthoutdoors #pnwisbeautiful #trailseek #washington #northwestvibes #livepnw #onlyinwashington #pnwparaside at Mountain Loop Highway
