My first visit/first hike in Montana was a memorable one. I got to see my cousin @ben_fowlkes, who I haven't seen in over a decade, and I got to meet his wife, @seaswell. Thanks Ben & Sarah for a great day!

This was a very hard trail, but not a very popular one and that's why I LOVED it! Only saw a few people once we passed the unmaintained part of the trail. We did 11 miles on the Stanley Glacier trail in Kootenay Nat'l Park. #canadarocks #canadianrockies #kootenaynationalpark #britishcolumbia #beautifulbritishcolumbia

I figured this needed a separate post. 10/10 would recommend the sunrise canoeing at Lake Louise. Initially, we were kinda bummed that it was very foggy that morning, but the fog only added to the mystique of this gorgeous lake! Thanks @kristi_travelrn for capturing my wild spirit in this action shot! #lakelouise #pocahontasvibes #canoecanada #beautifulbanff #banff #albertacanada #bucketlist #travelnurse #gypsynurse @ayahealthcare

I have taken so many pictures on this trip and each picture tells a story so I want to share the story behind this pic. Kristi and I were driving back from Jasper NP and we were having a good heart-to-heart car conversation. She is one of those pivotal friends in my life who has helped me tremendously. We met each other back in 2016 while working in California. She knew me before my brother died and she has been there for me ever since. Only 7 months after Ronnie passed, Kristi lost her father. We have shared an unfortunate bond. As we were driving we were talking about how we miss them and got emotional. Just then one of the prettiest rainbows I've ever seen popped up right above the highway. A beautiful reminder they are with us and looking out for us. 🌈❤💙

First Washington hike at Wallace Falls! It was so lush and beautiful. A great 8-miler to warm up my legs for next weeks trip! #solohike #pnw #wallacefalls #goldbarwashington #hikeadelic #wowwowwashington

Friends help each other out. But how many friends will go extreme lengths for you?...like drive your car over 2,000 miles to bring it to you?? That's exactly what these great friends did for Liz and I. After over 2 weeks of transportation issues and the company not being able to ship my car as planned, Jolea and Clay helped us out tremendously. Thank y'all so much for braving a cross country trip to help your friends in need and deliver my car to us. We love y'all. #crockettmillstothemillatfirsthill #picturestique

Happy Mother's Day to my unstoppable Mom!!!
"She was unstoppable. Not because she did not have failures or doubts, but because she continued on despite them." Mom, you mean the world to me and I love you so much!

It's been 3 years since you left us. With you went so much of me. I pray you're at peace. Rest easy, my brother. I'll always love you. #ronnieforeverlivesinmyheart

After Ronnie died, Mom and I started a tradition each year on his birthday to do something to help others in memory of him. Today, in honor of his birthday, we passed out these goodie bags to veterans at the VA hospital. We made these 'bandana knapsacks' and filled them with some of his favorite snacks. Happy Birthday Ronnie. We love you and miss you. 💙💙💙 #ronnieforeverlivesinmyheart

Happy Birthday to my Dad!! He's 57 today and one more year closer to retiring, which he is highly looking forward to. I hope your day is just like this picture...kicked back in the recliner with a fleece blanket and cat in lap (even with the thermostat set to 75 degrees), sudoku book in hand, and the other hand with the remote watching Wheel of Fortune. Love you lots Dad! #poppabranch #happybirthday #bewaretheidesofmarch

Happy International Women's Day!! #empoweredwomenempowerwomen #internationalwomensday2019 Funny story about this dress is that I was originally supposed to wear it to a ball for a date with this guy. He broke things off before the event so I almost returned or sold the dress. But guess what? I decided to WEAR THE DAMN DRESS!!! #girlsruleandboysdrool

Thank you everyone for all of the birthday wishes! In all honesty, I've been dreading this birthday for awhile. I'm 29 years old now and I have been anxious about this number... not because I'm pushing 30, but being 29 is unsettling to me. My brother Ronnie was only 28 when he died. It's difficult that I have passed the age he was at the time of his death. It is an odd feeling to outlive your older sibling. I have often thought, why do I get to continue to live when his life was cut so short? Am I older than my older brother? In my mind he will always be my older brother, but it just feels strange. But because I have such wonderful friends and family I was able to make it through the day much easier than I had anticipated. I actually enjoyed the day and was able to have fun celebrating my birthday. Thank you all so much. This picture is from an old note that Ronnie had written to me on my 24th birthday. He is no longer physically here, but he's still got me. No matter what. 💙💙💙 #ronnieforeverlivesinmyheart
