I LIVE for wandering through plazas. You get a mix of locals on their daily routine; eating and drinking at a cafe with their newspaper. Then you see tourists wandering with their cameras capturing a destination they’re experiencing for the first time. 💕 #TravelTip: Walk as much as possible when traveling, especially to hear the street music. You see more and may even stumble upon places you didn’t know existed. You can get in that exercise too!
This last weekend my momma and I met in Seattle for a belated birthday weekend and it was SO nice to get off the island and have some mommy/daughter time! Our plans may have gotten turned upside down multiple times and it rained almost the entire weekend (I know I know, it’s Seattle), but we made the best time out of it anyway! . Some weekend highlights: Staying in an Airbnb that looked like it was out of LOTR with two cats named Sam and Frodo (I kid you not) Staying in another Airbnb with a golden named Teddy and a toto dog named Winston (can you tell we are animal people) Pike’s Place Market x3 because we loved it so much! The tulip festival 🌷 Ferris Wheel ride to see the city 🎡 Last minute decision to go see a comedy show at the Underground Comedy Club Alllllll the food- so much ice cream, brunches, cookies, samples, organic restaurants 😋 . It was an absolutely wonderful weekend and I’m so blessed to have a mom that 1. likes to travel and 2. would spend a small fortune on me just to celebrate my birthday with me 😍 10 out of 10 times I would rather have an experience than get something material as a gift. Not just because I’m a travel bug but because I so value experiences and spending time with those I love more than things! . #alaskaair#iflyalaska
So happy it’s Friday! Do you have a favorite hike? We anticipated this hike so much, we even put it off an extra day to make sure we were mentally prepared! The Narrows can be a dangerous place if you’re not prepared & sometimes even when you are. We felt out of our element but also like we were exactly where we were meant to be. ♥ Virgin Narrows at Zion NP @zionnps
We’ve just kicked off 24 hours of prayer for Lilongwe, Malawi! We are less than 2 months away from bringing the love of Jesus to these streets. We can’t wait! Pray with us! April 20-21 | 6pm-6pm

I hope you choose the path that not as many take; the path that your heart desires; the path that is challenging; one that fulfills a purpose; one that brings you happiness; and find others along the way who intensely chase their dreams. Some of your friends might think you’re crazy, but just do what makes you happy and the right folks will jump on board. Here’s to an adventurous morning in Yosemite with @neilbennett3. And I have added this as a print in my adventure photography gallery. You can browse all the new listings and various sized prints thru the link in my bio
You can assume, predict, and expect, but life will always surprise you. I try to live by a rule of not putting TOO much hope and promise into my assumptions, predictions, and expectations, as the outcomes could quite possibly end up being absolutely unexpected. And you never know, maybe the outcome will be even better than your wildest dreams! ✨
