I’m drinking something in all of my recent posts... SO LET’S KEEP THE STREAK GOING! πŸ₯‚πŸ»β˜•οΈπŸ₯›Also, I’ve now competed in two triathlons, after not being able to run more than a mile earlier this year, so things are looking up! Check the blog (link in profile) if you want to know all my training tips and how I got to where I am now. And if you’re thinking about trying out a tri... DO IT. I promise you that you won’t regret it. πŸŠπŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸš΄πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

Taking this journey to the top one step at a time. Patience is πŸ”‘

It’s important to do something enjoyable every day!
.
.
.
Go for a walk, take a hike, go on a bike ride, or take a fitness class... do something positive daily! When you waste your days on social media daily, you waste so many days! .

I have found more in these mountains than I could ever find anywhere else. I found myself. And I keep finding more of myself along the way.

I know it's already Wednesday but my πŸ’š is still in the mountains after the most refreshing camping trip.

Connecting with nature has been an important part of my growth + healing process over the last few years + I am so thankful for wild places πŸ”οΈ where cell signals can't reach. Mountains make my problems seem small.

Any one else use travel for healing? Do you have a favorite escape spot when you're feeling overwhelmed?

I cannot explain how cathartic it is seeing the mountains every single day...this week of Aug is always an emotional rollercoaster for me and having something as calming as a simple view is much needed!! ❀️

When we take time to breathe above tree line we are reminded that although our lives are shorter, we are stronger than the trees holding up the mountain. #wildernesswednesday

Do you like crafts?? Check out this mail dropbox I worked up for my office! .
.
.
1. Paint the box (I guess first step would be find a box 😜) .
2. Print your words backwards with an inkjet printer. Tape on to the box with the ink side down. Pat with a wet sponge to transfer the ink onto your box surface. .
3. Paint over the temporary transfer you just made!!! .
.
.
Everyone in my office loved this little touch of home. Happy crafting!!! .

We lost the files to our @rockynps trip from 2016... luckily, I printed off a few images BEFORE losing the pictures to use as reference photos.

I decided to paint one of those few pictures from that trip. This one looks like a masterpiece...🎨 Have you ever lost any photos from your files before? 😁#artist #masterpiece #naturesbeauty #hikingadventure #sunsetwaterfall #mountainstream #rmnp #colorfulcolorado #unlimitedjoystudios

Guess this means I'm officially a Colorado resident (even though I moved here in 2015)! It only took me three years to let go of my Illinois plates. It was time. Even though Chicago will always have my heart, Colorado has my soul. The mountains are now my home. #colorado #coloradoresident #themountainsarecalling #goldencolorado #lookoutmountain #foothills #colorfulcolorado #rockymountains #illinoistocolorado #chitownforever

Interesting old tree by a creek. If its limbs could talk, what would it say?

GOCO helped fund the part that connects the Visitors Center to Cascade Falls, along with other projects in Ouray like the @ourayicepark and @ourayhotsprings. β € β €

Welp. I gave in and bought the ugly shoes. Does this mean I’m allowed to call myself a real hiker now? Where’s my membership card? .

"The sun shines not on us but in us. The rivers flow not past, but through us. Thrilling, tingling, vibrating every fiber and cell of the substance of our bodies, making them glide and sing. The trees wave and the flowers bloom in our bodies as well as our souls, and every bird song, wind song, and tremendous storm song of the rocks in the heart of the mountains is our song, our very own, and sings our love." ~John Muir

Yesterday, we drove Independence Pass to the little town of Aspen. We are loving these mountains more and more the longer we spend here. πŸ’™

An amazing weekend with great friends, amazing views, no cell service, and endless laughter....Everything I needed πŸ’™

To a person who lived here in the 1880’s, a night sky with all the stars like this would have been normal. Now this is something special that you only get to see in secluded places like this. Which experience do you think you would rather have?

We all get upset. We all lose our shit. It's ok. We're human. We're allowed feelings. Let me tell you a secret that will help you in your communication next time you feel like you're going to lose it. 1. Stop, take a deep breath. 2. Identify what you're feeling at this moment. 3. Ask yourself what you need in this moment and what you're partner might need. 4. Communicate that.πŸ˜‰

I'm here when you need me. 😊❀️

The night sky as seen under the full moon by Missouri Lakes in the Holy Cross Wilderness. This was a really brutal camping trip since it rained for almost 7 hours straight but overall the clear night sky’s made up for the daily misery. .

πŸŒŒπŸ¦‹ This supersized blue beauty just found its forever home! Labradorite is a variety of plagioclase feldspar, which owes its flashy colors to a structure which refracts light and splits it into its spectral colors. Labradorite is named for the Labrador Peninsula in Quebec, but specimens like this one are from Madagascar. NFS, but just one part of our large Labradorite collection. Stop by and take a look! πŸŒŒπŸ¦‹ #labradorite #feldpar #northernlights #labrador #blueflash #nightsky #madagascar #auroraborealis #minerals #mineralspecimen #crystals #rocks #minerals #xl #supersized #motherearth #collection #nature #elloro #elloroboulder #colorfulcolorado

Up on the chopping block today: GEOTAGGING. I will admit that up until a couple months ago, I geotagged the crap out of every single post I made. But as I educated myself on LNT principles more and more, I learned how harmful geotagging was, so I stopped geotagging specific locations. However, I still geotag general areas – such as the wilderness area or a nearby city. I want to know: What is your opinion on geotagging general areas? Is it harmful? Does it also violate LNT? Why do or don’t you geotag general or nearby areas?

Apparently it's "Relaxation Day." Let's be real, we all need more than one day for this. Come join us at summer camp where you can get a little R&R just like this happy camper! Time is running out, we're only about a week away from the first summer camp of the 2018 season. Check out the Link in bio for tickets!
