“Reclaim your wild” - Feral Diaries
🤘🏼💚🦅
_______________________________________
For years I was stuck. I felt trapped in a cage without doors or windows - my voice stifled, my heart broken, and my health in decline. Some of it from my childhood, most of it from not knowing how to process move forward. My sense of self was demolished and I was living in constant doubt, guilt, and defeat. If someone asked me to describe myself, sadly the only word that came to mind was broken.
.
To quiet my mind I came to my mat. Just once a week at first, then twice, then more and more 🙏🏼 Finding the breath, meditating, and understanding the internal processes of building poses began to shift my perspective.
.
I realized I couldn’t power through...it wasn’t sustainable. I had to back off and allow space for grace in my body AND in my mind. Through the process...pose by pose and breath by breath, I began to realize that every fall was preparing me for flight. The pose wasn’t broken...
.
I wasn’t broken...
.
I was just misaligned. Out of balance. Overly focused on the fall, and too afraid to let go and take flight. .
As I began to build various poses, I saw myself gaining strength, moving forward, laughing through the mistakes, setting boundaries, and beginning to reclaim my power. .
Through this newfound awareness, I realized I wasn’t trapped in a cage...
I had the key the whole time, I just forgot where it was🙏🏼
.
So to those out there who are chronically sleep deprived, sick, defeated, or lonely, I’m here to quietly remind you that your wings don’t have to be broken forever, you can mend them...
.
Yes you can...
.
and you must...
.
because baby, you were born to fly 🙏🏼🦅🤘🏼

My week of Jackson Hole posts kicked off on Rhyme & Reason yesterday! First up: this adorable gingham dress + I spilled on our favorite things to do in Grand Teton National Park as well as the best photography spots in the park 💕 #rrjetsets http://liketk.it/2x2OL @liketoknow.it #liketkit 📷: @edwineversole

It’s so good for the soul to step outside your comfort zone every now and then.

My workout isn't always a glamorous or quick thing. The one on my lap wanted to lay on me or have me hold him the entire time. The one showing his muscles wanted to chat the whole time 🤣, and the one you can't see? He cried the whole time! But, it didn't hurt any of them to understand sometimes it has to wait and Mom is making a choice to be strong and healthy. Plus, they always get time with me when I am done, and they know being healthy is a part of our lifestyle. What's your biggest workout obstacle?

It’s wedding week!! We’re La Barge bound 😍 can’t wait to see all of these girls ❤️ #wyomingwedding #weddingweekends #weddingweekendfun #weddingtimefun #girlsweekendout #girlsweekend2018 #friendweekend #wyominggirls #washingtongirls #nevadagirl

A year ago today we were hiking up the slopes of @grandtarghee in a state of intense anticipation to witness a total solar eclipse unfold above the Tetons. Though I had read over 1,000 pages in 3 books about the phenomena, no amount of research could have prepared me for what it would feel like to be deep in the shadow of the moon. First Contact, shadow bands, the moon’s shadow racing towards us from the west at thousands of miles per hour, Bailey’s beads, the diamond ring effect, Second Contact, totality. I knew *what* would happen, but I vastly underestimated HOW that would affect us all on a deep, visceral level.

The most primitive, reptilian jellyfish zones in my brain caused me to scream. I didn’t even realize I was screaming until I watched the video (check it out). Tears were streaming down my face. Words are useless, honestly, to try and convey this moment. It is cemented into my skull, the sight of lurid coronal streamers contrasting harshly with the gaping black hole in the sky, the moon. The experience left us all wonderdumb, awestruck, and flabbergasted. Check out our (hilarious) post-totality expressions. The next total eclipse is in July 2019 in Chile/Argentina: who is going?

Sure, it’s primary day in Wyoming, but what people are REALLY talking about is Costco toilet paper clogging their pipes! #wyomingprimary #wyomingpolitics #wyominglife

Mormon Row • Grand Teton National Park • Moose, WY • 343 miles from Hamilton, MT

Mormon homesteaders, who settled east of Blacktail Butte near the turn of the 19-century, clustered their farms to share labor and community, a stark contrast with the isolation typical of many western homesteads. These settlers first arrived in the 1890s from Idaho establishing a community (named Grovont by the U.S. Post Office) known today as “Mormon Row.” Homesteaders established 27 homesteads in the Grovont area because of relatively fertile soil, shelter from winds by Blacktail Butte and access to the Gros Ventre River. Despite the harsh conditions of Jackson Hole, Mormon settlers grew crops by using irrigation. These hardy settlers dug ditches by hand and with teams of horses, building an intricate network of levees and dikes to funnel water from central ditches to their fields between 1896 and 1937. Water still flows in some of these ditches.

Today, two picturesque barns highlight Mormon Row. Settlers John and Thomas Alma (T.A.) Moulton built these barns on adjacent homesteads. After nearly 30 years of working the land, John replaced his log home and barn with a new carpenter-constructed, pink stucco frame house and impressive, two-story gambrel barn north of Antelope Flats Road. South of John’s homestead, T. A. took over 30 years to build his gable-with-shed style barn.

The most extensive historic complex remaining on Mormon Row is the Andy Chambers homestead. Andy Chambers claimed land in 1912 and secured the title under the Homestead Act by building a log cabin and stable and clearing ground to grow grain, a backbreaking chore in the rocky soil. The family lacked running water until 1927 and harnessed electricity with a windmill in 1946. The Rural Electric Administration did not provide power to Mormon Row until the 1950s. By this time, many families had sold their homesteads to become part of the park. The windmill still stands on the homestead. 📷: @buffalo_flower
