Who said a 9 to 5 is boring? Working on the res, inspecting the water system, climbing tanks all day with #MtJefferson in the backdrop... I love this work! . . . #upperleftusa #pnwlife #workingoutside #tribes #drinkingwater #fieldwork #oregon #OptOutside #MountainLove #mytinyatlas

Icefall perspective. It was a bit surreal and scary walking through the icefall with chunks bigger than cars. 😬 . . . 📸: @jessica.sagnella

Mt Bachelor, Mars, and of course the Galactic Center of the Milky Way! Had an absolute blast shooting astrophotography for the first time with @zachrizer Perfect conditions with a new moon phase, clear sky, and shooting at higher altitude ~7500ft. Totally worth it to stay up late that night at camp.

How much would you charge??? Don’t get technical. 2 coats, mid grade paint. 🤔 I’d make it last for a couple decades at $6,500 house and $2,200 decks. Plus tax. Tell me what you would do!

We all love sunsets 🌅. They hold accomplishments and failures of a day almost gone and, at the same time, a hope and anticipation of a better tomorrow. To me, the location doesn’t make much difference. Whether it’s where the ocean meets the sky, on top of a mountain, my front porch or home city streets - the magic feels real ❤️.

Having these two for their spa day was a little bittersweet today because the last time they were groomed they were a part of a trio :( Dave is so missed out in the daycare yard and definitely by Lilly and Sophie! But we will never forget his goofy personality, his messy beard, and his random barks as he sat pondering deep things in the middle of the yard 😂 Today was a day of lion tails and extra snuggles for the girls ❤️

I have so many Greece pictures to share still but I'm trying to hold out on posting them until more blog content is published lol (have a new post coming soon, I promise!). So instead you get my plethora of hiking pictures lol. Loved this unique view on a rainy spring morning back in May. It cleared up as we got to the top thankfully and we got to dry up while soaking in the amazing beauty of our home. We are blessed with some of the best hiking trails in the U.S.! Where is your favorite place to hike (state, country)? Trail is featured on my blog if you're interested in learning more. Link in bio. Excited to get back out there hopefully this weekend!

Trying to remind myself to keep my head up and to try to stand as tall as these trees today lol. I always try to post motivational stuff on Mondays but let's face it, Mondays are hard sometimes lol! The sun is shining though and I'm really trying hard to get into a positive mindset today. We will have the sunshine all week & I'll be back to hiking again this weekend so at least there's something to look forward to! Some little things I want to work on this week outside of work for personal growth instead of laying down on my couch eating dinner & watching tv until gym time lol. Start reorganizing my office, drawers, cabinets, closets, etc. (will be an ongoing project for the next couple weeks). Start reading a book for pleasure & then try to creatively write (not blogging although I need to do that too lol, but literary fiction, particularly horror). Set a new PR in the gym with my squats & deadlifts. Go on walks with Joe around the neighborhood while we have this gorgeous sunshine, completely unplugged, and enjoy each other's company. Possibly start up morning runs again along with my evening gym sessions (if not this week, then next week for sure). Try a new recipe for dinner from another country. Research wedding catering, craft my bridal party proposals to send out, & work on wedding website. There's more in mind but I think I'm going to start doing these weekly goals to keep me motivated & busy. What do you want to work on this week? . . . . . . . . . . . . #alpinelakeswilderness #enchantments #eightmilelake #eightmilelaketrail #washington #pnw #pnwonderland #pnwlife #pnwcollective #explore #adventure #nature #outdoors #trees #beautiful #hiking #hike #nikon #photography #roamtheplanet #welivetoexplore #exploretocreate #upperleftusa #wanderlust #getoutside #optoutside #washingtontrails #summer

Ready for a weekend of fun in the sun! 🌞😎🙌 I'm excited for a relaxing (but productive) and social weekend. It feels kind of nice not being on the road for once lol! As much as I love exploring new places, traveling around, and hiking it's always nice to enjoy a weekend at home after a long work week. First things first for me...brunch with a gf, fit a workout in, lounging & tanning in my kiddie pool lol, and possibly a girls night out with my best friend. I hope everyone has an awesome Saturday! Enjoy that sunshine my fellow Washingtonians! . . . . . . . . . . . #lapush #lapushbeach #washington #pnw #pnwonderland #pnwlife #pnwcollective #explore #adventure #sightseeing #nature #outdoors #beach #ocean #beautiful #hiking #nikon #photography #roamtheplanet #welivetoexplore #exploretocreate #upperleftusa #wanderlust #hike #getoutside #optoutside #washingtontrails #summer #beachbum

Walking into the warm glow of the weekend! It's going to be a scorcher here in Washington and I can't wait! Skipping the mini roadtrip/hiking this weekend for once as it has been non-stop on-the-go lately and I kind of just want to unwind & catch up on things. Love hiking but the 5+ hours roundtrip driving depending where the hike is located really takes up your day on top of the hike. Think I might just relax at home, enjoy some drinks & tanning in my blow-up pool (lol), catch up on personal errands, get my 2nd blog post published in my Greece series, hang out with Joe & some friends in the sunshine & maybe go explore/walking somewhere nearby, and of course more wedding planning! But I'll be back at it next weekend with the outdoor adventures! I hope everyone has a super fun weekend!

I can't believe in less than 3 months we'll be celebrating 6 years together! 😍 Joe and I booked our wedding venue yesterday and we couldn't be more excited! We tie the knot on June 8, 2019 at Kitsap Memorial State Park. Wedding website & details will be coming eventually lol. I can't wait for our beautiful & magical DIY forest wedding! I just love the tall rustic trees combined with the backdrop of the Hood Canal. Can't get any more PNW than that, just need a view of the mountains lol! Of course you know that means our honeymoon will be somewhere tropical though lol. Island girl & PNW girl all wrapped into one 😉 So overjoyed to spend forever together 💙💛💜 . . . . . . . . . . . . #engagementphotos #engaged #engagement #love #iloveyou #soulmate #fiance #bestfriend #weddingwire #theknot #pnw #pnwonderland #washington #diablolake #nature #outdoors #photography #landscape #pnwlife #upperleftusa #explore #adventure #bridetobe #stylemepretty #beautiful #happy #wedding #smile #pnwlife #stylemepretty

Climbin' over the hump of the work week! We're halfway through and I couldn't be happier. Life is a little weird for me right now. An equal mix of good happy things for the future that you know should trump the bad feelings but the other feelings keep overruling. This mix of feeling unsure about my next step and my life (mostly in a career sense but also with many other aspects in my life). Just in this weird transition/limbo and feeling like a heavy weight is on me all the time. I hate uncertainty. I can't quite describe this feeling but I'm guessing it's a quarter life crisis or existential crisis lol. I know, so dramatic but so true. I know I'll figure it out and I hope you do too if you're feeling the same way. What helps me get my mind off things are my outdoor adventures, travels, and writing. What fuels your mind & soul?

Spirit Lake and Mt. Adams looking mighty fine on a perfectly clear blue skies & sunny day in Washington. Our early Sunday morning was definitely done right! Crazy to see all the downed trees in the lake from the volcanic blast. Truly interesting to see the cycle of life here and a reminder of mother nature's incredible power. Enjoyable 8.5 mile hike. Bring lots of water though because of the exposed trail and sun! More info on my last post if you're headed out there soon. Now to figure out where hike 17 of the year will be...suggestions?

Happy Monday! I'll admit I'm not in a very motivated mood but reminding myself and anyone else who might need it that even though Mondays suck, at least we get to live to experience another day. Set the bar high and crush your week. All motivational words aside, this hike we did yesterday was wonderful and we picked the perfect sunny & cloud-free morning for it! Started at 7:30 but wish we started even earlier because it was so hot! It was a fairly easy 8.5 mile hike but it's exposed most of the way through and so that heat can really get to you. It was a cool experience walking through a blast zone and seeing new life slowly growing back. Loved the views of Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Adams, & Spirit Lake. Lots of wildflowers in bloom, especially Indian Paintbrush. Also, can you spot that little minty colored lake below? All in all a great hike for number 16 of the year! What's your favorite hike in Washington or the PNW in general? P.s. if you want to start early before the observatory opens, we called the day before and they told us to just pay after the hike so that is what we did. Please pay and support our parks, forests, and public recreational lands. Although I'm not sure what you would do if you did a sunrise hike and got back before the center opened still lol. It is $8 per person for the wristbands. NW Forest Pass gets you one free entry. America the Beautiful Pass gets 3 people in I believe. If you have those and arrive early I would just keep the passes with you on your hike. . . . . . . . . . #pnw #upperleftusa #pnwonderland #washington #pnwcollective #pnwlife #harrysridge #mountains #mtsthelens #hike #hiking #beautiful #outdoors #nature #getoutside #optoutside #wanderlust #roamtheplanet #exploretocreate #welivetoexplore #explore #adventure #summer #nikon #landscape #view #washingtontrails #wildflowers #beautifuldestinations #acolorstory

Happy Sunday! On our way to hike Harry's Ridge at Mt. St. Helens this morning. 2nd hike of the week and hike number 16 this year is special for me because I haven't been to the area since 2010, the last camping trip I ever did with my family before they moved in 2011. I'm hoping for some great nostalgia today and self-reflection as I wasn't very appreciative of it all back then and just how beautiful the area was. It was right before I turned 18 and unfortunately still going through some teen angst and had that newly high school graduated, thought I was so grown attitude lol. Ha! Little did I know just how much growing up I had to do lol. I'm almost 26 now and still have so much to learn lol. Hoping to one day make up for that family trip soon. Anyways I hope everyone has a great Sunday Funday! Pictured here: Little eightmile lake.

I guess I just love these "walkin into the weekend" posts lol so here's another one! This trail was in one of the wild fires last summer and it was a crazy experience walking through a mixture of new life & charred death. Eerie but beautiful at the same time. Interesting to see the circle of life in nature. Really enjoyed this trail, and contrary to what you see in this picture there was still plenty of green that had grown back along with lots of wildflowers & tons of cute little critters running around! I even saw a large snake crawl across the path in front of me (that happened to me in Greece too lol) and that was not cute lol! I especially loved the big brown rock boulders at the lakes because it gave it this rustic character. There was a creek beside a lot of the trail too giving off that peaceful babbling water sound for our journey. The area here just gave me lots of fairytale vibes and also beautiful fall vibes at the lake. Loved this hike & excited to see more of the Enchantments. I can't wait to do the incredibly popular (maybe too popular?) Colchuck Lake very soon! Anyways, happy Friday everyone! Doing anything fun this weekend? We are celebrating a nieces bday Saturday (she is a 4th of July baby!), touring a venue we have on hold afterwards that will probably be the one! (finally, hooray!), and hiking in the Mt. St. Helens/Mt. Adams region Sunday with some friends. Busy but fun weekend for us! Hope it is for you as well! . . . . . . . . . . #pnw #upperleftusa #pnwonderland #washington #pnwcollective #pnwlife #eightmilelake #alpinelakeswilderness #enchantments #hike #hiking #beautiful #outdoors #nature #getoutside #optoutside #wanderlust #roamtheplanet #exploretocreate #welivetoexplore #explore #adventure #trees #nikon #photography #washingtontrails #summer #herPNWlife

Summer & lake days what more could you ask for? This little wild haired island girl was content. The solitude & beautiful hike was a bonus 😉 I had every intention of jumping in but the sun didn't want to come out all the way and it was a little windy lol. Only had one towel between us (oops) and I was going to rely on the sun to warm me up after. I've definitely jumped in colder or at least the equivalent so I was mentally prepared lol but it's okay, I still have all summer to get my alpine lake swim in! I did dip my feet in while eating an early lunch and was somewhat satisfied lol. Happy Thursday folks! Hope you all enjoyed the mid-week break! Can't help but feel like I'm having a 2nd Monday though lol! Pessimist? Maybe.

Had a great early morning 4th of July hike with my love today! We hiked to Eightmile Lake, part of the Enchantments, and it was beautiful and such an enjoyable hike! Nice to take a break from crazy elevation gain and get more of a gradual gain instead lol and to walk through such gorgeous scenery, even with the past wildfire devastation. Gave the lake autumn vibes. We got to enjoy the lake to ourselves for an hour too! Well besides one quiet camper in their tent across the way lol. I honestly couldn't think of a better way to spend Independence Day than exploring our beautiful country's wilderness with the one I love most. Hope everyone is having a nice holiday and staying safe! Happy 4th of July & humpday! P.s. We got so many great shots that I'll be sharing the next few days as I work on Greece blog posts. Probably my favorite hike so far this year, but we still have many more to go lol we are only on number 15 for the year but have number 16 lined up for Sunday! . . . . . . . . . . . . #4thofjuly #independenceday #pnw #upperleftusa #pnwonderland #washington #pnwcollective #pnwlife #eightmilelake #alpinelakeswilderness #enchantments #lake #hike #hiking #beautiful #outdoors #nature #getoutside #optoutside #wanderlust #roamtheplanet #exploretocreate #welivetoexplore #nikon #photography #landscape #explore #adventure #summer #washingtontrails

"You're just too good to be true, can't take my eyes off of you". I mean I really couldn't though during this shoot lol 😂 and also I can't think of that song now without hearing Heath Ledger singing it in 10 Things I Hate About You! Spent last night doing a little wedding planning. Very close to booking a place FINALLY. Idk how many times a couple can change their minds about their plans but hey it's life lol. Anywhooo, we are off on another adventure to day hike to one of the lakes in the Enchantments today. Hopefully it's not too busy! We had intended to leave closer to 4 but well...sleep is good lol. Happy 4th of July to my U.S. friends and fam! Stay safe & have fun! My red, white, & blue post will be coming later lol!

Happy Saturday!! Unfortunately no hiking for me this weekend due to other fun festivities with friends so here's a little throwback to the perfect spring hike to do in April or May. I wonder how hot it is now there lol! Really loved this hike for a change of scenery and unique setting. Kind of made me miss the south a lot. The landscapes kind of reminded me of that. Well we are off to run a couple errands bright & early and then hit the gym to sweat it out before tonight! I hope everyone has a great Saturday! Link to my blog post on this hike and a few others on my IG is in my bio if you're interested.

As much as I loved the photos at the Diablo Lake overlook because c'mon that view is insanely gorgeous, I have to say I really love these shots down at the sandy lakefront as well. I love the background & textures so much! Our photographer Patrick suggested bringing a picnic blanket, coffee or alcohol of choice & anything that helps tell our story. I ended up bringing that sarong for our blanket as it's from Hawaii which is like a 2nd home to us & a place we would love to move to someday and also it's been on all of our travels abroad together as a couple so far from Bali, to the Philippines, to the Greek Islands and many more to come. I always tell people the best way to describe my lifestyle & my vibe/personality is I'm an island girl and a PNW girl all wrapped up into one so it was nice to kind of get that "beach" vibe and mountain vibe in our engagement photos. Now to figure out the wedding vibe/location which we are so so close to doing! Honestly I keep getting distracted by honeymoon planning instead lol, time to dial it in! Anyways, sorry for the rambling but it's #mcm and I wanted to share another wonderful engagement photo. Still can't get over how incredible they are & will be sharing them periodically for awhile lol, sorry.

In almost 6 years I've learned a lot with you & I know we are still just scratching the surface on life & love but there's nobody else I would rather do it all with. Love isn't just about the romance, the butterflies, the happy & good times, spontainety & constant fun, that "honeymoon" feeling 24/7, etc. It's about loving each other even when that person can be a pain in your ass sometimes. About being able to find comfort & joy in the "boring" routine that will inevitably form throughout everyday life (doesn't mean life isn't fun together anymore! Far from that but you long-term relationship peeps know what I'm talking about!). It's about putting in the hard work day in & day out together & being a team. Helping each other through some of the darkest times & when the going gets tough, not simply giving up on each other. Love isn't always easy & it takes a lot of commitment, honesty, communication, openness, support, loyalty, compromise, willingness to try new things & get out of comfort zones for each other, and lots of listening. A little humor goes a long way too lol! Everyone always gushes to me about how perfect we are & that they "envy" us but I'm here to tell you NO couple is perfect & please do not compare your relationship to ours or your "goals" if single. We are what we are & do what we do because it works for US and what works for us won't necessarily work for anyone else. We all have our issues that we work through behind closed doors as well & everyone is different! I can say though that we are perfect for each other & that we make each other very happy. I have never loved anyone as much as I love you Joe. I am so excited to spend forever with you & I know that what we have is strong, true, & so very special. Cannot wait to be Mrs. Milham! P.s. still have a lot to share from this shoot with the amazing Patrick Nied! . . . . . . . . . . . . . #fiance #bestfriend #soulmate #engaged #engagement #engagementphotos #bridetobe #diablolake #pnw #pnwonderland #pnwlife #washington #nature #outdoors #beautiful #love #iloveyou #stylemepretty #theknot #weddingwire #photography #upperleftusa #adventure #exploretocreate #isaidyes #lovelulus #thatsdarling
