live every day like it could be your last Our cat snuck out of our house on Thursday morning. I didn't realize it until I got home from work and he was nowhere to be seen. We live on the edge of some fairly extensive woods with lots of wildlife, including a black bear sighting. My husband and I went down some of the trails this evening calling for him. To our surprise (and great relief!) we heard small meows coming from not far off one of the trails. Turns out he had climbed about 40' up a tree and had no idea how to get down! With the help of a kindhearted neighbor and his ladder, we were able to get him down relatively unscathed! He is currently relaxing on the arm of the couch right where he belongs ❤️ ╼═══════╾ 🐾 Use HUGO10 for 10% off @handlethehound · · #handlethehoundmodel #handlethehound #explorepnw #pnwonderland #pnwisbest #dogsofinstagram #dogsofthepnw #cattledog #blueheeler #blueheelermix #mixbreed #rescuedogs #adoptresponsibly #shopresponsibly

In light of the recent situation regarding the senseless killing of a fellow human being, it saddens us once again to hear of an incident that forces us to recall a recurring theme that plagues this nation. Through the Buddhist teaching of interdependence, while on the one hand, we are to recognize the solidarity we share with all sentient beings, we must also not forget the great responsibility that each one of us has regarding our individual actions. We saw how the actions of one man (or a few) have impacted the lives of so many people across a vast land. Let us use the Buddha’s teachings to reflect on the impact of our actions and to be mindful, careful, and considerate of how we act towards others in this time of grave instability.

I needed this weekend so desperately. CB is it for us. Our escape. Our calm. Our reset. I was reminded that we are equipped with the tools to thrive within the storm, with the expectancy of brighter days ahead, and that’s what we will do🙏🏼 Until next time✌🏼🖤 XoJ . . . #cannonbeach #oregoncoast #pnw #pnwisbest #upperleftusa #calminthestorm #haystackrock #weekendgetaway #datenight #whiskeybar #sesameandlillies #pelicanbrewingcompany #pelicanbrewery #bestfriends #allGodspromisesareyesandamen

I was really heavy hearted today. Anxious. Filled with no hope for the state of the world. Furious for marginalized people. Scared that we are seeing an end of democracy in the U.S., and the begin of a dangerous dictatorship. I am still most of those things, but I was able to do something nice for myself, and get out in nature, at one of my favorite places on earth, and make some art with @melissarobinphoto Check out her work. It's breathtaking. Really. Go look now. She led me in a really lovely grounding meditation, and asked me what mantras or words came to mind for our art. How did I want to be seen? I want to be seen as powerful, equitable, smart, and creative. I was able to let alot of that anxiety go. I was able to remember the good, the beautiful, the lovely. I was able to laugh. I was able to remember all the love around me, and in me. ❤️ When you are heavy and anxious, walk into the woods. Give it all up to the universe. The world needs you healthy and strong to fight the good fight again soon.

Lazy Sunday.

I injured my leg last summer, which stole the last 2 months of good weather from me. I won't take it for granted this year! When I dont get my time with nature, my mental health suffers and I'm working on bettering myself. #washingtonwonders #wenatcheeriver #iciclegorge #pnwisbest #wanderlust #nature #naturephotography #photography #travel #photooftheday #landscape #instagood #naturelovers #beautiful #picoftheday #photo #art #wildlife #travelphotography #sky #flowers #mountains #adventure #follow #naturelover #spring #life #photographer #beauty

Beginning sketches of a one-color pattern that I'll illustrate digitally when I'm satisfied with each icon (so many ideas left to sketch out!) for printing on different colored backgrounds. What motifs can you spot? My favorite is the little seal that was a botched salmon! Envisioning apparel, totes, and wallpaper or peel & stick vinyl mural decals when I feel like I have a large enough surface design portfolio of recent illustrations to start an online shop with in the near future! Back when I still did graphic design, iconography was always my FAVORITE part!!! Hands down more fun for me than typography, and the very first icon logos I ever designed won an award! In contrast, my simple text-only logo options never ever even got downselected by clients 😆

Previous post was not at a proper time of day... The Yaquina Bay Light I believe it is called sits atop a hill looking over the Pacific Ocean in Newport, Oregon. The only Wooden Lighthouse on the Pacific Coast I've heard as well. #pnwexplored #pnwonderland #pnwdiscovered #pnw_shooters #oregonphotographer #teamcanon #exploregon #oregonisbest #onlyinoregon #outinoregon #upperleftusa #destinationpnw #pnwisbest #wonderfulplaces #mycanonstory #igtravel #usatravel #photooftheday #photography #igshotz #outdoors #lightroom #optoutside

Silver Lake was more green than a lucky charm. • It was cold and it was rainy but we had enough whiskey and rummy to last the night.

My heart is breaking. The racism, discrimination, bigotry and injustice currently happening in America is straight out of a nightmare. But it is real, and I will not stay silent. ⁣ ⁣ Please understand, you have a VOICE, and that voice MATTERS. Right now it is crucial you use it, and loudly, because CHANGE starts with each and every single one of us, regardless if you feel impacted or not. White silent speaks volumes, but not in the positive way we need. ⁣ ⁣ Voicing #blacklivesmatter might not be on brand with what you typically post. Maybe you’re scared of change and this is uncharted territory. Or perhaps you think you aren’t part of the problem because you “don’t see color”. Well luckily, that’s okay! Because that story doesn’t haven’t to be your reality anymore.⁣ ⁣ Moving forward, you have the opportunity to dismantle the programming you likely had no part in consciously creating for yourself! What you do NEXT is imperative to creating a new narrative, not only for yourself but for your community. And when we start influencing the lives around us by showing up, uniting and putting in the work, then we start collectively impacting the world. ⁣ ⁣ So please, SPEAK UP.⁣ Use whatever platform you have by not just sharing a meme, but your own words, your own story, your own voice. Be willing to have tough conversations by seeing and standing up to the racism happening all around you. Offer your services. Donate. Show up. ⁣ ⁣ EDUCATE yourself. ⁣ Have the willpower to do this hard work on your own without relying on BIPOC to teach you. Be open and accepting to the process and your journey in understanding your white privilege, regardless of what you uncover through this healing. We don’t have time for shame spirals; forgive yourself for your OLD ways and start doing the work NOW towards changing your perspectives, distortions, negative patterns of belief, and judgement.⁣ ⁣ Ask QUESTIONS.⁣ By questioning what we understand to be normal, we can start to shift our reality and clear the path towards healing. ⁣ ⁣ Have EMPATHY.⁣ We must choose LOVE over hate,⁣ because then and only then will we have⁣ peace + justice.⁣ ⁣ ✊🏿✊🏾✊🏽

Right now Seattle is under Curfew, a better word for it would be martial-law. We cannot leave our homes under threat of arrest. I can't even begin to imagine or put into words the privilege that this is not 'normal' for me. These are a few of my observations: I've seen the City of Seattle take a more aggressive response to protests than to a pandemic, calling in the military to 'protect property'. I've listened to the reporters lament the loss of property, more than the loss of life and liberty of a nation. I've seen the police of this city conceal their identities, and carry out atrocities, while discarding the tools which enable oversight. More broadly, I've seen people shot at on their own thresholds, by police 'sweeping' the streets. I've seen so-called 'Leaders' threaten their constituents with violence. I don't believe any of these actions are acceptable or reasoned responses. These are not the actions of a Liberal, Democratic, nation. We need change. We need leadership, working within the constructs of our constitution to effect that change. ↟ ↟ ↟ #BlackLivesMatter #Seattle #seattleprotest

When you’ve lost 125lbs, a twelve mile hike doesn’t seem as daunting anymore.. I still have a ways to go to reach my goal but this hike has been on my list for over a year! Yesterday, we finally hit the Iron Goat Trail in the North Cascades and it was GLORIOUS! This is just the first set of photos.. and if you’ve never heard of the Iron Goat Trail, or the train disaster of 1910.. google it! Most of the tunnels we saw on our hike were built after, and because of, the train disaster. All abandoned now of course.. . . . #hikingwa #hiking #weightloss #nsv #barefootautismwarriors #getoutside #goforahike #pnw #pnwonderland #pnwisbest #upperleftusa #cascademountains

I'm sitting in my home safe tonight wondering when and how I'll speak to my kids about what is happening in our country right now. The fact that I even have the choice to talk about it, is a privilege. It would be easy to let the kids play and live in their own world without bringing it up and teaching them about racial injustice. But I don't want them to live in their own little worlds. We want them to live with eyes wide open, being sensitive to the struggles of others, and standing up and speaking out when they see injustice. Diversity is a beautiful thing. And while we all look different and come from different backgrounds, we have all been created in the image of God, inherently equal and inherently valuable. We don't just want our family to be "not racist," but to actively love their community and stand up for the rights of others. 1 Corinthians 13:6-7 "Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres."

Yesterday marks the last day of my springer season before I head to Alaska! What a awesome season, I grinded my butt off but I learned a ton and stayed on the fish so it was worth it! Thanks to everyone who got to come and chase these pesky fish with me, till next season!🔥 . . . . #riverjourneyguideservice #lamiglas #pnwisbest #igdaily #river #westernfishingoperations #pnw #getoutdoors #forgettheforecast #grundens #seattlefishing #fishwashington #washington #steelhead #centerpin #lamiglas #fishingdaily #grundens #olympicpeninsula #trophysalmon #photography #washingtonfishing #outdoors #goexplore #sundayfunday #wildernessculture #outdoorphotography #steelheadfishing #keepemwet #hooked

CHAC is always pleased to be a co-sponsor of Olympia Harbor Days, one of our all-time favorite festivals in the community. Even though the event isn't happening in 2020, we wanted to showcase a conversation with Executive Director Carol Riley on what lies ahead while we also travel back in time to the very first OHD - link in our bio. ⁠ ⁠ 📸: Shanna Paxton Photography⁠ ⁠ •⁠ •⁠ •⁠ •⁠ •⁠ #experiencelocal #olywa #olympiawa #olympiawashington #iconicoly #pnwisbest #smallbusiness #olympiagram #pacificnorthwest #shoplocal #staylocal #supportlocal #hvac #airconditioning #heatingsystems #hvacrepair #commercialhvac #smallbusinessowner #shopolympia
