I rolled over in our tent during the middle of the night to hear an elk bugle in the cliffs above camp. I immediately couldn’t sleep; a wild alarm clock that rang through my chest. That sound is as close to a dream as anything I’ve ever experienced. When I emerged from my sleeping bag in the morning, the whole canyon was covered in a blanket of fog. It was magic, and I still can’t believe it was real. #elkcamp

Early morning at the hunting cabin: coffee on the wood stove, cast iron breakfast and last night’s whiskey cups still on the table. Good living, happy heart.

Happy gratitude day @chefeduardogarcia! I’m always amazed at your ability to change your mindset to see the positive in anything. By sharing your story- the wins and the tough parts, you have helped (and will continue to help) those that need a little encouragement and light. Today and always I’m grateful for your spirit and resiliency. @chargedfilm @cafoundation

It definitely feels cold today and I’m already missing the heat of summer (and Fall for that matter- I feel like we just jumped right to winter) so I’m drifting back to all these images from Grand Staircase // Shot for @otterbox #OtterboxAmbassador #unruletheoutdoors #ad

Back in the front country after a once in a lifetime trip with mustangs, @bencmasters @kgsmasters and @chefeduardogarcia, deep in the woods. It doesn’t even quite feel real...

Eduardo and I have dreamed for years about basing out of this little off grid cabin at 8000ft. You can’t argue with the views (or drinking coffee here). We’ve never been able to afford to take a full month off...but in the meantime, we’ve started to work with @goalzero to help keep our businesses running by charging laptops and phones off of solar and power banks (!!). In doing so, we are getting a little bit closer to living this dream. #wheretonext #ad

Another year around the sun! //
In reflection of this year, it was just as challenging as it was joyous. It had significant loss. First, in losing my future father in law and then a dear friend soon after. But for all that is lost in grief, I gained community and tenderness tenfold. I practiced not standing in my own way of my creativity. I spent 3 months with my hands in the dirt almost daily. I worked hard to honor both bravery and gentleness at the same level. @chefeduardogarcia and I decided we wanted to marry each other- undoubtably the most exciting part of the year. And more than anything else, I’m finishing my 27th year full of love, community and family. I couldn’t ask for more than that. // 📷: @chefeduardogarcia
