The Appalachian Mountain range is growing on me. I love the blue haze that always seems to be out in the distance. So different from the Rockies that I grew up in.

Views from Vesper peak along mountain loop highway. Some of the best mountain layers I’ve ever seen. We counted 8 🙂⛰🌄

You are more than your job.
You are more than where you live.
You are more than your income.
You are more than what kind of clothes you wear.
You are the way you react to situations.
You are the way you act towards people with less than you, as well as people with more than you.
You are the big, badass goals you have that maybe no one knows about but you're working toward them anyway.
You are the books you read and the prose you write.
You are not meant to fit in a box, and you're doing the best you can with what you have.
And most importantly, you are enough, even if you aspire to be so much more. You are enough, you are enough, you are enough.

Did some adventuring not too far from home the other day! Crushed a 12km hike in some AMAZING fall weather 💪🏻 I also pack the best trail snacks which might be my fave part of hiking #exploremb #sprucewoods #zerowastesnacks #nature #girlswhohike

Did the hardest hike I've ever done today with a friend. 4.10 miles roundtrip from the car, 2700 feet high with lots of rock climbing. About 3/4ths of the way through I wanted to quit because my head was starting to hurt but I knew I'd be pretty mad at myself if I got that far and didn't finish. Just finished errands and lunch so now it's time for a fat nap 😴😴51/100  #hikeaz #hiking #hike #trails #trailrunning #trailruns #mountaintop #mountains #mountain #optoutside #girlswhohike #summit #mountainside #⛰ #nature #thegreatoutdoors #leggings #active #activewear #fitspo #fitnessmodel #fitnessmotivation #100workoutchallenge

8/52 - Sara Wan Trailhead @ Corral Canyon, Malibu.

Lovely hike that ventures deep into the canyon and hugs the coastline of PCH. So much fun exploring. I’m learning the strangest things about myself as I continue on this hiking journey. For example, I always want to quit right as I’m about the finish the hardest part of the trail. The last 25% of the hard part - wherever it may be- is the greatest mental challenge for me. Also, I go much slower than most people do. I like to look around and take everything in. I feel like this is some kind of metaphor for my approach to life as well. I may go slowly but I will finish at all costs!

As I reached the summit of this trail, I looked around and soaked in the view of our beautiful Pacific Ocean. I know this sounds sanctimonious- and I don’t care - we really are blessed to live in such a gorgeous place. 
And I finished this hike with delicious fish & chips. Treat yo self. .

Celebrating 6 months with this little nerd today by taking it back to where I was hiking the day I realized I was ready for my first pup. It’s been an adventure and a learning experience - building trust and confidence in a dog who had very little of either when I brought her home - but it’s certainly easier now that she’ll actually eat treats! My kitties may still be rolling their eyes at me, but I think our little family is going to be just fine. 💕 #adoptdontshop #lilyofparkfairfax #fairfaxcountyanimalshelter #girlswhohike #getoutside #princewilliamforestpark #findyourpark

As you have seen I’ve ventured into the land of creating nature inspired clothing. This lights me the f up!! Thanks to everyone for the support, feedback and encouragement as I create. If you want to stay up on all The Advantures (Get it? Get it? Adventures in a van!!)I’ve created a new IG page @the.advantures where I will be posting new items as I roll them out and adventures to get inspired!

Beautiful day hiking with friends and stopping for a picnic at the top of Long Mynd in Shropshire. The best days are the ones with not much planning and taking in the fresh air. 💛

There is no straight path in nature so learn to enjoy the twists and turns. First post on my new page!! I’m feeling grateful (partially sentimental) that we live in a world where you can truly follow your dreams. My imagination has been a blessing and a curse over the years, but once I found a way to positively channel it, I began to recognize my own potential. I’ve found a way to embrace my love for nature, live out my passion for creativity and see an idea through to the final product(s). All my designs start as an idea that I bring to fruition using my finger tip to draw them. Thanks for coming along on the journey and seeing The Advantures unfold!! First item that will be available SOON. Freak of Nature hats! 🌲🌵🌴10% of sales will be donated to non-profits dedicated to preserving our parks! I will let you know when the Etsy shop is up and running!

Mounds State Park: Trail 2 
Indiana State Parks have nice boardwalk systems. These help those, who normally would not be able to hike, the ability to enjoy the outdoors.

LUCKY
•
having, bringing, or resulting from good luck.
•
I’ve never really “believed “ in luck. To me wishing for “luck” is the same thing as praying to God or a Deity only when you need something or when you’re desperate.  Let me know how that works for you...because it never worked for me. 
An abundant life (to which I refer to as abounding fullness of joy and strength for mind, body, and soul) isn’t about having luck, it’s about being grateful for all of life’s blessings. 
Blessings are gifts from the divine, so wouldn’t everything be considered a blessing? So where, exactly, does luck come in? 
LUCKY vs. BLESSED
I guess it’s all a matter of perspective. But next time life hands you something that makes you feel fortunate, brings a smile to your face, makes your heart open a little more; I invite you to graciously accept it as a blessing. Notice if that change in perspective makes you feel differently inside. Does it bring more value to the “gift” you received? 
I think now more than ever the world could use a lot more people who are willing to believe that all of life’s gifts & lessons come from something so much bigger than ourselves.

Tree Springs Trail-
Was the perfect way to spend a fall day. We saw spruce, firs, and aspens- just to name a few. The colors changing and the dropping temperatures in the forest are something to marvel at. #treehugger

Awesome day trip up to Big Bear, then took a detour to Lake Arrowhead for the first time from a local’s recommendation and went to a free local Oktoberfest! Such a solid day to reset and get some nature in me 🌲 #visitbigbear #bigbear
