Hello and happy Friday. I don’t know where this week has gone it seems to have flown by which is a good thing because it means we are a week closer to @centerparcsuk 🍃I’ve just taken a photo of the apples left on our tree in the garden. Over the past few weeks we’ve given them to family and friends as we don’t use them but one year I will definitely have to learn to make apple crumble so we use them too! 🍏 if you know of any good recipes send them my way and have a good day 💚

She can't get enough of our lesson on living and non living things.  But this time, I asked her to plant the "alugbati" so it will continue to be a living thing. 😜 ⠀ What we like about gardening is it helps with their sensory as it engages all the senses. Plus it encourages healthy eating. Now she knows how the veggies that she eat grows. ☘ ⠀ How was your day mama? ⠀ ⠀ #1000hoursoutside   #thisishowwehomeschool   #justhomeschooling   #exploreoutdoors #homeschoolph #kidsgarden #homeschoolmama #letthemexplore #natureschooling

While I lived the big city life for years, I kept telling myself: tomorrow I will go running through the forest somewhere or: next weekend I will take the kids hiking or: next week I need to save some time for reconnecting with nature. And with myself. And breathe deeply. But the thing is: I barely managed to do all of this. For decades I fully depended on concrete and asphalt. Because I may have been too lazy, because there was always something more important to do in the city jungle, because of distractions, work, social obligations, because it was such an organizational effort to come up with a plan and get everyone in the car until you leave the big city lights behind you. All these excuses. I got miserable. I needed to leave my comfort zone, try something new. And so we went. Travelled. Paused. And here I am. In the middle of the wilderness. No better things to do out here than being out here. Every day. Every type of weather. I still go to work every day. But after work I go here. Nature. And that feels so good. And just right. For how long? I don’t know. But for the moment I can say that I’m gaining strengths; intellectually, physically, emotionally. I am much more balanced. And: Watching my kids turn into outdoor fanatics right now is priceless. Im thankful for that experience. I’m sure you are doing a much better job than I ever did in managing your inner balance, recharging your batteries on a constant base, reconnecting with nature and setting your priorities right. However, if that by surprise is NOT the case and you are just a chaotic-city-buzz-addict as I have always been: the weekend is within eyeshot. Maybe it’s time to try something new? And go for an outdoor adventure? Whether it’s the playground around the block, suburbia’s parks or the deep woods in the countryside: I’m sure it’s gonna be so worth it. #liveinthemoment #tonightssunset #beachwalk #reconnect #happyweekend #outdooradventures #breathe #nofilterneeded #chestermanbeach #tofino #explorebc #trysomethingnew #naturerleben #letthemexplore #exploreoutdoors #naturelover #reset #simplelife #wirzeit #downgrade #downsizeyourlife #slowlifestyle #entspannen #entschleunigung

Picture perfect maroon bells mountains blanketed in changing Aspen trees. They don't call it Aspen for nothing. We got lucky with timing, they sure are breath taking. ___ Our hike didn't start off so great. Our usual pretty easy going 3 year old wanted nothing to do with hiking today. You can tell from his sour face in the first picture. We did not let that stop us though. How could we stop? It's so beautiful. He made it to Crater lake, but napped in the pack down. I don't blame him, I'm sore. ___ We also took a quick trip to downtown Aspen. Not really our vibe. We'll take the mountains any day though. . . . #embracingcuriosity #embracinghealth #optoutside #mountains #mountainlove #mountainsarecalling #hikingfamily #hikingadventures #hike #maroonbells #aspen #aspencolorado #exploreoutdoors #explorecolorado #colorado #therockies #rvfulltime #rvfamily #fulltimefamilies #travelfulltime #travelfamily #homeiswhereyouparkit #homeiswhereverimwithyou

“I’d rather be hiking in the rain, than sitting inside at a desk on a sunny day.” -Unknown . . Even when freezing my 🍑 off in a rainy 40 degrees (F) for a good portion of the 12 miles out and back to Healy Pass...yep, I’d still take it any day! ❤️ . . #hikingintherain #healypass #sunshinemeadows #banff #banffnationalpark #explorecanada #hikealberta #wildandfree #solohiking #solotravel #idhikethat #idhikethatcrew #canada #canmore #themountainsarecalling #happiestinthemountains #summithike #summit #mountains #wildflowers #getoutside #exploreoutdoors #womenwhohike #womenwhoexplore #wanderer

“Things may happen, and often they do, to people as brainy and footsy as you.” — Dr. Seuss⠀ ⠀ Sometimes I like to just think of the possibilities for these two. The things they’re capable of already just astound me. Doesn’t every mom think that? ⠀ ⠀ I have a legit fear that Harrison will be a stunt man for the movies some day, and I wonder if Clara will be in the Olympics. I think about their some-day-spouses, their some-day-kids. Their some-day-jobs. How Clara is an exceptionally strong-minded, strong-bodied girl, and am thankful society is becoming more embracing of women like that. How Harrison is a happy-go-lucky, sensitive, deeply emotional, muscle-boy, and I’m thankful that society is becoming more accepting of men like that. ⠀ ⠀ I wonder about their hearts. Their relationships with their Creator, with their Dad and me, with each other. ⠀ ⠀ I wonder about it all, and I’m excited. God has made them beautifully and wonderfully. He’s made them for a purpose. He’s let me be their mom for a reason. I know I’m the lucky one in all of this. 💛⠀ +⠀ +⠀ +⠀ +⠀ +⠀ #fosteradoption #adoptivemom #adoptivemomma #wecouldhavemissedthis #blessedbyadoption #adoptionadvocate #thisisus #foreverfamily #chooselife #borninourhearts #heartgrown #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodlens #unitedinmotherhood #motherhoodunited #goodbyesummer #hellofall #getoutside #letthembelittle #exploreoutdoors #enneagram1 #cancersurvivor

Mornings on the lake in northern Bali. On the way up to shoot this location a few days back, my motorbike slipped on oil and I took a little tumble... feeling very grateful to have only lost the skin from my toes! Above all, I’m feeling extremely grateful for all of your support recently. The past few years have been a crazy journey in itself and I can’t wait to find out what’s next. It also seemed that many of you found the tutorial helpful, so I’ll be releasing another one tomorrow! 🎣🚣🏽‍♂️ ------------------------- .

Myself and co-guide went out in Algonquin Park with a group of spunky grade 6 girls, who through sunshine and pouring rain kept singing, laughing and a good attitude (even if they didn’t always keep paddling). We found mushrooms, cooked over the fire, sat in reflection and painted scenery. And, at the end of the trip, soaking wet from a torrential downpour as we crossed the last bit of the lake to get back to camp, I just felt s.t.o.k.e.d. Like ‘holy shit this is my job’. This week, I read a quote that resonated so deeply with me both in this moment and outside of it ••• “A good moment turns into a good day, which turns into a good week, into a good month, a good year, and, a good life” ••• {and if that isn’t a tear jerker idk what is} Staying #aliveoutdoors and really living 🛶🍂🌞 • • • • • • #getoutside #exploremore #explore #wildernessculture #gooutside #neverstopexploring #landscape #canada #exploreoutdoors #vanlifejournal #beautifulworld #adventure #vanlife #canoetrip #naturelovers #canada #canadiantravel #ilikelakes #algonquinpark #algonquin #fallvibes

I never sit still ... in fact taking this picture was probably the result of me being a goof for about 50 snaps of the shutter, but in that moment, you were ready. You saw your opportunity and you took it- you sneaky guy! Thanks @bensonk42 for making me feel beautiful in my favourite places xx

Why are you so afraid to start something new? Afraid to fail? Your friend didn't succeed, so why would you? • Stop being a follower! You will never know until you try yourself. There is so much more than being miserable where your at. Never making extra unless you work overtime. What kinda life is that? Wouldn't you want to make an unlimited amount? • I didn't realize there was something better than going to a place that made me stressed about everything. I wanted to live there (sad) to make as much as they would allow me. That meant I would miss more time with my family. That meant I needed to ask the babysitter to watch the girls a little longer. • Crazy to think that I thought that was how life was suppose to be. I am so thankful that this business has made me realize that there is more to life than being stuck in a building with rules, a set pay & no freedom. • I own my own time and I couldn't be more blessed. • Let's talk. Everyone deserves their own time & freedom! . . . . . . . #lifechanging #healthylifestyle #freedom #goodvibesstateofmind #pose #inspireothers #influenceothers #influencers #inkedmom #inkedadventurebabes #goals #findyourtribe #financialfreedom #workfromanywheremom #workfrommyphone #travel #exploreoutdoors #explore #quabbin

Shikoku Pilgrimage Day 17 (850km/2060km) Temple 35: Kiyotakiji Temple of the Waterfall ————————————— Second temple of the day! It’s a hot day again and this one was on the side of a mountain... so sweating a lot getting up to the temple. As you can see from the pictures... very nice wood carvings everywhere! I grabbed some burgers and a milk shake after..! Had to take a rest from out of the harsh sun. ————————————— The temple was founded by Gyōgi in the early 8th century and originally named Keizan-mitsuin Taku-mokuji. A century later Kōbō Daishi visited the temple and after seven days of austerities brought forth a clear stream of water from the ground. The water formed a mirror-like pond so the temple's name was changed to Kyōchiin Kiyotakiji (Mirror-like Clear Waterfall Temple) ————————————— #explorecreateshare #exploreworld #exploretheoutdoors #exploreoutdoors #explorenature #adventurenthusists #adventureenthusiast #adventuresports #adventuretrip #adventureworld #lifeinjapan #japanart #japantravelphoto #japantown #japanesetraditional #Япония #Japonia #Japão #Japao #Japón #japon #japonais #Jepang #ประเทศญ ี่ปุ่น #日本觀光 #Giappone #Giapponese #Giappo #اليابان #일본여행

I’ve been slacking in the gym department these past few months but if there’s one thing that motivates me it’s a cute workout set. Anyone feel me? 😂 On that note, I’m loving this top and leggings combo from @stronger ’s new Feathers collection! So glad I brought it with me to this park because it is a trek to get here (and it was super hot that day). Next step: sign up for a workout class. If you’d like your own @stronger set, they are offering 20% off with the code EDANA20! For reference I’m wearing the Avion sports bra and high waist leggings in size small but all of their prints are adorable! Let me know which is your favorite (and if you want to be workout accountability buddies because I need one)! ❤️❤️ #StrongerSweden #gifted

Is it possible to be addicted to looking at flowers? Because of so, I am Melissa and I have a little pink flower problem. I oogle these every day on the way to and from dropping B off at school. They remind me of 🧚‍♂️ and 🦄 and ✨. I want to have a tiny tea party on their plush, perfect petals. Dreamy. 😍

#AD What a fab final day at @bluestonewales. We woke to sunshine ☀️ yay, so headed out soon after breakfast to find a castle to explore. And we lucked out. Picton Castle is less than 15 minutes from Bluestone and is somewhere that can be a full day out in Pembrokeshire, whether you're staying in Bluestone or from the area. A hidden gem, we enjoyed a castle tour before exploring the gardens and visiting their new Owl Garden. We would have spent longer there but we were racing back to the #serendome so this boy could do another Skywalk Mini, which he smashed. After that we visited the new sand castle area 🏰, the water area 💦 and then the imagination corner. And when the heavens opened ☔☔, we were nice and dry inside the #domesweetdome of Bluestone. It really is a fantastic addition to an already amazing resort and I'm so glad we've had the chance to experience it. Our trip has been tinged with some sadness as my Mum was due to come with us. But, the boy and I have had a great time here at Bluestone and had some quality one-to-one time. And the Serendome was a big hit with us both. Tomorrow we head to Swansea to see a friend, before dropping off our car hire and getting a transfer to Bristol Airport ahead of our flight home on Saturday (thanks Ryanair for that total mess). But I could easily stay another week here! Have you visited Bluestone yet?

This is actually one of my favorite photos from my Enchantments trip. It was hard work, then big chill. Rinse, repeat. There’s no better feeling than dropping a backpack after a strenuous climb! Thanks for grabbing this photo @teddi.moreen of our post hell climb snooze! . . Jen and I were in perfect sync with positioning. Lol! We were sweaty and chilled by the cool breeze, all while being fried by the sun. It’s amazing how packs explode the moment you need to even remove a single item 😂 . . . . 📷: @teddi.moreen . . . #theenchantments #washingtonstate #alpinebabes #womenwhoexplore #womenwhohike #aasgardpass #ospreypacks #lasportiva #livelifeoutside #lifeofadventure #optoutside #empoweredwomen #outdoorwomen #backpackingadventures #backpacking #pnwhiking #pnw #adventureislife #adventurelikeyougiveadamn #hikingadventures #mtnchicks #livebravely #outside_project #getoutside #exploreoutdoors #rei1440project #amongthewild #themountainsarecalling #sheexplores

MALIA | You never know what people will inspire you. This was a shot taken from one of my very favorite days from Alaska. With all the epic and wild places I got to experience while in Alaska, there was something about this guided hike that remains near and dear to me. Malia was our guide, and was so calm, so knowledgeable, and so in control of the group. She was the frontline against any bears or moose on the trail. Being able to see other women being their full adventurous and courageous selves expanded what I thought I could do myself. There were a lot of pieces that led me to Montana and my choice to hike solo in Grizzly country. But I have to think that Malia planted the seeds and served as a model of what is possible for me.

Did you know the world's tallest sunflower reaches 30'1"!! Crazy cool huh? 🌻 Did you also know that they also traveled to space in 2012! Out of this world huh? 🌻 Did you also know that they remove toxins suck as lead, arsenic and uranium from contaminated soil! They were ever used to help clean up Chernobyl and Fukushima! Pretty amazing huh? 🌻🌻 Yup, they're pretty much the coolest flower around!
