I am so excited to be #sponsored by @TopoAthletic to share some local adventures with you all!
Now that the weather is getting warmer and the days are getting longer, the great outdoors are calling to me! I’ve been wanting to hike to Taughannock Falls for quite some time, and my Topo Athletic shoes made it so easy to hit the trail on a beautiful Saturday afternoon! Check out my stories for more behind-the-scenes snaps from this waterfall adventure. #topoathletic #mytopoadventures #movebetternaturally

Steve and I took baby Evie on her second hike this weekend. We did three easy miles on mostly flat terrain in a nearby park. Not gonna lie, I was hurting afterward. I definitely miss being fit and climbing mountains, but I just have to be patient, let my body recover from giving birth, and work on slowly getting back in shape. Hopefully by August I’ll be ready for some more strenuous hikes in the Canadian Rockies, like this one from two years ago! 💚 (Photo by @walasavagephoto)

Dreaming of warm sunshine, outdoor adventures, and skirt weather! 🌞

It was a beautiful day yesterday for Evie’s first waterfall hike! ❤️

I’m just about at three weeks postpartum. 👶🏻 I haven’t been very active on this account lately as I adjust to life with a newborn. I didn’t have an ideal birth experience (I’ll spare you all the details, but feel free to DM me if you want to hear more!) and the recovery has been harder than I imagined. However, me and baby got out for a lovely walk around the neighborhood yesterday and I can feel my body improving little by little. It’s only a matter of time until we’re back out in nature, and eventually climbing mountains together! We also have an exciting trip planned for late August to one of my favorite places (see the photo to find out where we’re going!!) I can’t wait to share this beautiful world with my amazing little girl! 💙 (photo by @walasavagephoto)

It’s been a while since I’ve posted on here and I don’t have any new outdoor photos to share because I’ve been a little busy! 😉 @walasavagephoto And I welcomed our baby girl into the world on 3/15. She has brought a new level of happiness and meaning to our lives and has kept us very very busy with her massive appetite, amazing snuggles, and lots of dirty diapers! I won’t be posting many photos of her on this account unless we’re out hiking and adventuring together. However, we made a private account for baby pictures so feel free to DM me if you want to follow along. ❤️

Well today is officially Baby Walasavage’s estimated due date, but so far there’s no sign of her arrival! I am trying my best to stay calm, keep the house tidy, and finish tying up loose ends at work. I’ve been walking (when it’s not too painful), bouncing on an exercise ball, and I’m heading to prenatal yoga this evening. Let me know if you have any other tips. We can’t wait to meet our little nugget! ❤️

I have just assumed that I‘ve posted all of my favorite travel photos at some point. Yet, looking back through my hard drive I realized that I somehow I missed this one?!?! Whoops. Well, better late than never! Taken by @walasavagephoto on our Norway honeymoon!! 😍

Digging through old travel photos has been fun, but I can’t wait to be making new outdoor memories. Spring and summer can’t come soon enough! 😌

Raise your hand if you’d like to be canoeing around a glacial lake in the early morning solitude!🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️
