Our little peanut turned 11 today. It’s amazing how much personality, sass, laughter and joy she fills our tiny home with. Even though @amandalewman thinks she runs this ship, it’s really Rosie that’s THE BOSS, or as I like to call her, El Jefe. Every birthday we get with her feels like we’re cheating just a little bit. Thanks for being born, kid...and for letting your moms love you just a little too much. #lovenotes#WeDemLewmans
This pretty much sums up today’s restorative hike: blue skies, the sun streaming through the ponderosa, fir, and spruce and making the scrub oaks glow as if afire... all emerging from a blanket of snow. It may have been 23 degrees this morning but my heart had a warm glow 💛💚🧡❄️✨ and my body had lots of layers on 😉
It’s amazing how much time can change a person. When I first came here, I was 16, on a family march through the wood, and incredibly grumpy because of it! Dang those classic Washington straight-up-the-hill hikes.😜But now, almost ten years later, I had this hike on my 2017 summer list! It felt wonderfully refreshing to replace the somewhat negative emotional attachment I had to this place with something more lovely.☺️
Photography tip six – Photographing movements of water. In landscape photography, a popular method to photograph running water bodies is to drag out the exposure - best if it's kept under a second. This creates a dynamic yet soft flow of the movement of the water while preserving its details. - @ohvl, Travel and Lifestyle Blogger

» I spent this last weekend here, in the mountains with no cell service and a bunch of crazy awesome teenagers, and it was honestly the coolest thing I’ve done in a while. Seeing God move in such tremendous ways in their hearts (and mine!) and getting to pray with them was easily a highlight of this season I’m in, and a solid reminder from my Father that He has the absolute best things in store for every one of us.
I’ve had to process a lot from the weekend, but the big thing I’m walking away with is the idea of pursuit... not just that we should pursue God, but that He relentlessly pursues us. It doesn’t matter where we are or we’ve been been, His love reaches those places, so whether you pray everyday or you’ve walked away or turned your back, He is (still) actively pursuing you. That is the most ridiculous and undeserved kind of love, and our Father is alllll about it 💕
This weekend, some awesome friends suggested *cough* forced me to work on my not so beautiful skill of skiing on my split board 😅🎿 After all the giggles and bails, I was feeling like a pro, but more so resembling a bird about to take flight 😂🏂

Today has been hard. If you’d like to learn more, the link to a new video explaining everything is in my bio. But I’m also so proud and happy, for many things. I have amazing friends and family who continue to support me with my endeavors and a YouTube community that sticks up for one another. It’s amazing to see how many of us have come together during this difficult time. And I can’t believe the support I’m receiving from everyone. Thank you all. #GetCarsonTo1k
Sport changes lives. All the sport brands say it. They say it because it’s true. See how it changed my life and the lives of 6 other inspiring everyday athletes in the @dailyburn article by @malcrev (link to article in my bio). #truestory
“When we get too caught up in the busyness of the world, we lose connection with one another—and ourselves.” -Jack Kornfield
Have you ever been in the shower and questioned whether you had already washed your face? Or spent the day so wrapped up in work that you forgot to eat? This is what happens when we become disconnected from the present moment by becoming too “up in our heads.” Time for some raw honesty. I have been guilty of this a lot lately. Substituting busyness for real living, going through my days feeling numb, not connecting with people or my surroundings. I think somehow disconnecting with myself has been my mind’s compassionate way of dealing with stress or feelings of inadequacy in my own life.
Social media can be a fun and useful tool but it can also mislead by glamorizing other people’s lives. I follow some incredible individuals, who are doing some really amazing things. Some of these people travel more, have more fulfilling careers or reside in a more beautiful areas than I do. Unfortunately, this can often result in thoughts or feelings of not being good enough. But rather than shutting everything out, it’s important to allow these emotions to process through me. I am not my thoughts or feelings. They can pass through me, but they do not define me. Where other people are on their journey is no reflection of where I am. It’s okay for me to observe, but I need to stop judging myself by the performance of others. We are all so different.
I felt it was important to put these words here, because I can’t be the only person that feels this way sometimes. So hopefully this post can serve as a reminder to my myself to spend less time romanticizing what other people have and more time embracing the everyday joys in my own life. Because the truth is, I may not have everything, but my life is still pretty damn great.

This is the cleanest we'll look for the next 5 months. Follow our disintegration of hygiene by bicycle and maybe some good ole wipeout vids. #americandream2wheels#sheadventures
@thatoutdoorsygal // “I choose mountains because they turned me into the woman I am today. Hiking has made me a different person, a better person, and has allowed me to open up and feel confident being myself; my weird, awkward, clumsy self. Whether I’m climbing a peak, hiking the desert or swimming through a freezing cold slot canyon, I am happy being me and love that I get to meet other like-minded people when I’m out exploring. I met my boyfriend and some of my closest friends in the mountains, and I hope to meet new people with every new adventure!” //

Feeling like Tarzan. Maybe not the point when I fell in, but every other time!
This weekend was a blast- waterfall chasing by day and lighthouse hoping by night.
Thanks for the memories and the photo @kmexplores.
