Admit it. You’re not like others. And that’s not just okay, it’s fkg beautiful. And if you’re too much of anything for some people, They’re just not your people. . It’s okay to cut ties with someone who won’t go the distance for you or with you. Make no apologies for wanting to surround yourself with only those who believe in you. . (A mixture of my words and an anonymous quote I edited and added to, to make my point) . . . . #shotoniphone #theweekoninstagram #ig_namaste #global_ladies #wow_america #girlscreating #feature_the_best #royalsnappingartists #theamericancollective #thevisionaryhub #dofnature #folkscenery #folkgreen #the_gallery_of_magic #rsa_fog #outdoorwomen #naturalnewengland #naturalconnecticut #natureromantix #outside_project #hikingculture #hiking_hobby #hikerlist #optoutside #shotoniphone #youmobile #adventureon #mistyfoggymilkymoody #mistbestshots at Pootatuck State Forest

I believe one of the keys to unlocking happiness is to keep the wisdom and positive memories from our past, but to secure that door shut and to open a new one onto something new to look forward to. . What are you looking forward to?? . I’m reeeeally looking forward to visiting our daughter in Italy 🇮🇹 in April with my parents and brothers to celebrate my parents’ 80th birthdays and my husband’s big 5-0. I know this will be a very special trip! 💕👫👭👫👫👭👬💕 . #whereLUMIXgoes . . . . . #theweekoninstagram #ig_namaste #global_ladies #wow_america #girlscreating #feature_the_best #royalsnappingartists #theamericancollective #thevisionaryhub #snapwire #dofnature #folkscenery #folkgreen #the_gallery_of_magic #galleryoflightfeature #natureromantix #outside_project #optoutside #natgeoyourshot #illegalvisuals #yourshotphotographer #dofnature

Remember, there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end. — Scott Adams . We never know how our actions to strangers will affect their day and the people they encounter and, in like manner, the day and relationships of those people, and so on, and so on. . So let’s make every contact in kindness and with a smile. We never know whose day we will make ... or break. 💖 . And 🎈HAPPY BIRTHDAY 🎈 to my dear friend, @missesthe90s, whose kindness and friendship over the last 5 years has definitely rippled in my life. Make your day the bestest one, yet, Roger! Get spoiled rotten and eat lotsa cake!! 🎂 . #whereLUMIXgoes . . . . . #theweekoninstagram #ig_namaste #global_ladies #wow_america #girlscreating #feature_the_best #royalsnappingartists #theamericancollective #thevisionaryhub #snapwire #dofnature #folkscenery #folkgreen #the_gallery_of_magic #rsa_fog #galleryoflightfeature #outside_project #optoutside #natgeoyourshot #illegalvisuals #yourshotphotographer #orbearth #adventureon #topnewyorkphoto #wildnewyork #new_york_shots #unlimitednewyork #iloveny at Millerton, New York

Photography keeps me present. It preserves that shutter burst of time, but also, in that particular moment, I am truly there and nowhere else. Photography has always kept me practicing being in the moment like nothing else ever has. . #whereLUMIXgoes . . . . . #theweekoninstagram #ig_namaste #global_ladies #wow_america #girlscreating #feature_the_best #royalsnappingartists #theamericancollective #thevisionaryhub #snapwire #dofnature #the_gallery_of_magic #outdoorwomen #galleryoflightfeature #naturalnewengland #naturalconnecticut #natureromantix #outside_project #optoutside #illegalvisuals #yourshotphotographer at Connecticut

When this kid was 5, she refused to wear dresses that didn’t twirl (no straight dresses), when she was 12, she followed all the style gurus on YouTube, when she was 16, she started working in clothing retail at the only store who was hiring under 18 year olds (and still does — thank you @american.eagle.outfitter), at 17 she was off to college to major in fashion merchandising and marketing, and now, at 20, she’s heading off to Italy in 2 weeks to study fashion with industry pros. She’s always ahead of the trends, especially in this freezing NYC moment where I had every piece of skin covered and she looked like this!

So right now, it’s 57°F, which is officially 63° warmer than it was on Sunday morning at 8:30. Yeah, that’s not freaky. 😳 #climateyikes . In fact, during our giant freeze, it was actually colder than ice! Did you know that at the Ranger game the other day, the ice temp was *warmer* than the air temp?!? AND it was warmer in Alaska than it was in Florida. . Tomorrow, I will show you pics of me sun bathing. ☀️ 🏖😅 👙 #ikidikid 😂 . . . . . #theweekoninstagram #ig_namaste #global_ladies #wow_america #girlscreating #feature_the_best #royalsnappingartists #theamericancollective #the_gallery_of_magic #rsa_fog #naturalnewengland #naturalconnecticut #natureromantix #outside_project #optoutside #natgeoyourshot #shotoniphone #yourshotphotographer #orbearth #youmobile #adventureon at Ball Pond, Connecticut

Hey 2018, here’s what you can expect from me: More of the same. . More evolving and growing. More time with family. More meeting IG friends in person. More traveling. More writing of all kinds. More creating art just for me. More reading by the fireplace. More hiking to witness sunrise (see photo). More hand holding. More long, heartfelt hugs. More singing at the top of my lungs. More quiet, undistracted, reflective moments. More veni, vidi, amavi (I came, I saw, I loved). . Sorry to be predictable 2018, but just more of the same. I resolve that. . #whpresolutions2018 . . . . . #ig_namaste #global_ladies #wow_america #girlscreating #feature_the_best #royalsnappingartists #theamericancollective #thevisionaryhub #snapwire #dofnature #folkscenery #folkgreen #the_gallery_of_magic #rsa_fog #outdoorwomen #galleryoflightfeature #naturalnewengland #naturalconnecticut #natureromantix #outside_project #hikingculture #hiking_hobby #hikerlist #optoutside #natgeoyourshot #shotoniphone #illegalvisuals #yourshotphotographer at Pootatuck State Forest

Like all years, 2017 has a highlight reel and a bloopers reel, but I’m here, you’re here, and you’re gracing me with your friendship, my captions with your brains and laughter, and my photos with your eyeballs. . The wind was always at my back, the rain always fell softly upon my face, and I stayed present to and grateful for each moment. . 2018 upgrade? I’m open and ready. .

So I heard this quote recently: Working hard for something you hate is called stress. Working hard for something you love is called passion. . But more importantly, did you know that STRESSED spelled backwards is DESSERTS? .

🎄A break from my normal antics with a Christmas prayer of gratitude🎄 . Dear God, . Thank you for your gift of this beauty and for the vibrant health that allows me to hike the path to see it. Thank you for Your golden light, as well as Your healing light, that fills those who welcome it and shows them Your presence at all times. Thank You also for this faith that allows me to believe at all times and trust in You and Your Divine ability to conjure infinite possibilities for our lives that are so much more than we could ever imagine for ourselves and our world. And thank You most of all for the ability to love and be loved and for my family who is at the center of that love. . Lastly, thank You for showing Yourself to us some 2000+ years ago and for this season, at which You are the center, which we celebrate with full, faithful hearts. . Amen. . 🎄✝️ MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE! ✝️🎄 .

“Every human heartbeat is a universe of possibilities.” — Gregory David Roberts, Shantaram . This book. This literal epic book is page after page of rich, provocative description and mind bending philosophy mixed with fascinating adventure in a world I know nothing about. I will be referencing this book several times in captions to come. . If you’re a reader, you’ll enjoy it. If you’re a philosophe, a thinker, you need to read it. Need to. . // PS Sorry I’ve been behind on IG. I’m in the Christmas season and hosting 22 people on Monday, as well as singing in 3 Masses and a few practices, and all of life’s other gems! And I mean that. I treasure this life and the gift my loving obligations. // . . . . . #ig_namaste #global_ladies #wow_america #girlscreating #feature_the_best #theamericancollective #thevisionaryhub #snapwire #dofnature #folkscenery #folkgreen #the_gallery_of_magic #rsa_fog #outdoorwomen #galleryoflightfeature #naturalnewengland #naturalconnecticut #shotoniphone at Pootatuck State Forest

I was going to vent about something that really irked me this morning (FB trollers who seek out fights), but instead I’m going to talk about things that makes me smile: . The hush of a snow laden forest; The way my dog’s ears bounce when he walks at a happy pace; When my husband makes my kids laugh; The smell of my Christmas tree; Giving presents; A day reading by the fire; Giving compliments to strangers and my kids finally being old enough not to be embarrassed by it, but to appreciate it and do it themselves; Conversation that is spirited and positive and insightful; Good grammar 😬 Anything coconut Courage Beautifully crafted writing . I’d love to hear some from you!! . || Model: @michelle_crd || . . . . . #ig_namaste #global_ladies #wow_america #girlscreating #feature_the_best #theamericancollective #thevisionaryhub #snapwire #folkscenery #folkgreen #the_gallery_of_magic #outdoorwomen #galleryoflightfeature #portraitpage #portrait_perfection #theportraitpr0ject #pennsylvania_life #pennsylvaniaisbeautiful at Allegheny National Forest

What do you prefer: sunrise or sunset? 🌅 . For me, sunrise feels like more of an accomplishment and energized me for the day ... even though it also conks me out earlier. 😆 . #ig_namaste #global_ladies #wow_america #girlscreating #feature_the_best #theamericancollective #thevisionaryhub #snapwire #folkscenery #folkgreen #the_gallery_of_magic #galleryoflightfeature #naturalnewengland #naturalconnecticut #connecticutlife #connecticutgram #yourshotphotographer at Pootatuck State Forest
