There's no time to be bored in a world as beautiful as this. - I'm so excited to get out explore these next few days. As we prepare for our move to Las Vegas we will be focusing on our AZ bucketlist items in Tucson and South βœ…

Our family grew by four feet πŸ–€ We're so excited to share with you the newest addition of our family. Her name is Canyon and I can already tell she is going to be quite the adventure dog. Visitors are welcome to come say hi!

Thankful for where 2017 has brought me. I've learned to love even deeper and to include myself in the list of people I adore. I live as authentically as I know how. I've realized it's okay to not always have the right words and it is helpful to simply offer a listening ear. I've accepted I am enough, even when I am striving to become something more. . This last year was blessed with adventure. 20+ national parks and monuments. 6 states. 2 countries. I biked, hiked, climbed, kayaked, and even learned how to ski. Most importantly I had a wonderful soulmate walking this path besides me. . Life is all about taking chances, making choices, and changes. Here is 2018, 365 more days of opportunity. May it be filled with growth, adventure, and most importantly love.

"If we were meant to stay in one place, we'd have roots instead of feet." #Explore - Some possible changes and moves might be coming in 2018, only time will tell.

Casually pondering what the future has in store. #Horseshoebend #RichesBucketList - So excited to only have two more weeks left in the semester! (Grad school is no joke people) Then there will be time for winter exploring in Seattle and Whistler before returning to AZ and our busy lives.

Just another picture of me exploring #AntelopeCanyon #TheRichesBucketList - P.S. Kim Kardashian was here 2 days after me and I am convinced my insta story was her inspiration β˜„

β€œNever go on trips with anyone you do not love.” -Ernest Hemingway - Still reminiscing on how amazing our last trip was. Loving him sure does make the long drives together tolerable. Stay tuned for more pictures to come in the next week.

Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished. πŸ–€ #TheRichesBucketList - I'm always needing the reminder to slow down. Sometimes we become comfortable in the chaos of our busy lives. My favorite way to slow down is to get out to enjoy nature. What's yours?

"It’s not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves." #Zion #HappyFriday #TheRichesBucketList - Take time to get outside, breathe fresh air, feel the sun on your skin and connect with your authentic self. I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Adventure is out there πŸ’™ #NoFilter #ExploreAZ #RoadTrip - When we found out our dear friend was getting married in St. George we knew a road trip was needed. It turned out better than planned. Even the random stops we made were beautiful. Can you believe I hated living in AZ the first year we were stationed here?!

πŸ’šπŸ’š No road is long with a good companion. - Congrats to the now husband and husband! It was beautiful to be surrounded by so many loving and caring individuals celebrating the happy couple.

Reclaiming my climbing confidence one hold at a time ✌ #RockClimbing - It's been way too long since I've been climbing (outdoor or the gym). It felt good to be back and only climbing a few levels lower than what I am used to. Thankful for a husband who loves the outdoors and introduced me to climbing. Hopefully we can climb outdoors soon. 🀞

Sharks and whales and foxes, oh my! Santa Cruz Island did not disappoint. #TheRichesBucketList #FindYourPark - Channel islands are worth the trip. We went to scorpion ranch on Santa Cruz Island and hiked. It is an hour boat ride to get to the island. We saw a great white shark and blue whale on our trip out to the island. It was a bit foggy on our hike to Smugglers Cove, it felt like we were walking through a cloud. If I did it again I would extend the trip to backpack and stay the night.
