After 20 years of having a car in NYC this past Spring I decided to get rid of it. It was so much fun to get to drive around the city in the #lincolnaviator and stop for lunch at the cutest @cafe_colette @lincoln
"Go out for a walk. It doesn't have to be a romantic walk in the park... It doesn't have to be a walk during which you'll have multiple life epiphanies and discover meanings no other brain ever managed to encounter. Do not be afraid of spending quality time by yourself... That doesn't make you antisocial or cause you to reject the rest of the world. But you need to breathe. And you need to be." Albert Camus 🌌✨🌙
Every turn in this place taught me to live with simplicity, the cold and harsh winters which is placed with the incredible warmth and hospitality of people even with the limits of language. They open doors for the strangers with smile and tea. Before the sunset on a crisp winter day along Himalayan road 🗻🗻 #himalayas#spitivalley
I cried last night. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I may lose some respect here, but I don't look forward to the holidays. Christmas causes a lot of stress and anxiety for me. I'm finishing up fall wedding galleries, while also driving all over the state of Tennessee to see family, while also shopping for meaningful gifts, while also trying to keep a semi-clean house and doing laundry so I have clothes to wear, while also keeping exercise a priority, while also trying to have a normal life....you get it. And of course I see the irony and privilege in these "first world problems" - I'm working for myself doing something I love instead of working for someone else doing a job I hate. I have a huge family that all want to see me. I have money to buy gifts. I have a home that I love and a closet full of clothes to wear. I am healthy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I tried to be intentional this year about outsourcing things in my business, but it doesn't seem to be enough this month. And it'll be okay - I'm not complaining, just wanted to be real and say that if the holidays aren't your favorite time of year, I'm right there with you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This post sounds sad, and that's not my intention. I actually feel a lot better today and I'm ready to sprint towards 2020. Most people only show their highlight reel on social media, and I don't want to feed into the comparison game. My life is pretty amazing, but I'm also a real human with feelings and struggles. When you work for yourself, there will be busy months and slow months. Get a good cry out, feel your feelings, and then let the busy months teach you how to be better for next year. 💪🏻

Even on my worst days, it’s nice to know that I get a hug when I get home. Sometimes it’s the littlest things that make the biggest difference and I am so grateful for that. @jacob.nokes thank you for being the yang to my yin, for always believing in me and for being not just my best friend but my greatest soulmate ❤️
Officially less than two weeks before we head down to Patagonia and I am already mentally halfway out the door. 😍🏔 I’ve been working on all the hiking stuff I promised y’all since last week, and only got a liiiiiittle but sidetracked with last minute planning and errands and low grade nerves and high grade excitement and also my real job and also an inbox that 👏🏼just won’t quit 👏🏼. So, it’s coming eventually, I promise 😂 mostly it’s all written and I just need to figure out what format to put it in! Would love your feedback: one giant blog post? A few normal length ones? A gigantic story highlight? A bunch of posts? Some combination of all of the above? What would be the most helpful to you to read, save or reference?? 👇🏼I know I like saving feed posts for later, and I enjoy stories but almost never reference story highlights, but let me know what you’d prefer!!
Quoi, dans 10 jours c’est Noël ?! Difficile de se mettre dans l’ambiance de Noël cette année plus que toutes les autres, disons qu’on a la tête ailleurs... 👶 Hâte cependant de le fêter avec nos deux familles réunies pour la première fois !🎄
