What goes better with a cup of Riff cold brewed than a Cafe au Lait Cupcake?! Our friend’s over at @idascupcakes are using the Riff Concentrate in this divine cupcake, topped with Kahlua and chocolate frosting. Excuse us… we’re drooling.
We’re basically making it into Earth week in our home & exploring everyday we can! We’ve been on a mission for years now to make sure we live more ‘green’ in all things & transition what we use & buy 🌱 chemical free, recycling, changing our diets- all things we’ve gradually shifted over to be better for us & the planet. Our boys are growing up radically differently than we did in a good way! Moving here has definitely helped us be more active & outdoors focused- especially as spring has hit! We’re out every chance we get & our rescue dog is SO happy about it 😂 she turns into a puppy outdoors & is getting us a lot more walking in! I wish everyone could live in a place this magical- cannot wait for Friends & Family to visit us this summer! #grateful#mountainlover#springtime#adventures#fortheplanet#earthday#utah#loveutah#utahlife#explore#fortheplanet#gogreen
Hey everyone! This is Alex, letting you know that today is Katie’s BIRTHDAY! 🎉 Look at that smile. The best thing about Katie is her ability to have fun in any situation. Whether it’s in 95 degrees in the desert, or 15 degrees in the snow, she somehow always manages to keep that smile. Not only does she remain positive, but she spreads happiness to everyone she interacts with. Simply put, she’s a ray of sunshine. We would appreciate it so much if you could contribute $1, $5 or $10 to our GoFundMe any amount helps! It would basically be like taking Katie out for a cup of coffee for her Birthday ☕️ (and she LOVES coffee) Every little bit helps, we appreciate you all continuing on this journey with us ❤️
↟↟Summit Sisters↟↟ When I first met @katelyn_ali she felt familiar, like we had been friends for years. I wasn’t sure what it was or why, but it felt like we were meant to come into each other’s lives. Fast forward less than one year, and we’re chasing a dream together. @smalltowns2summits is a story worth telling. If every person who liked this photo contributed $1, $5 or $10, we would have enough funding to make our dream a reality. Click the link in my bio if you’d like to help tell this story (do it for the Birthday girl 🎉)
Soon the alpine streams will be flowing again. Even when the mountains are stormy they are the most peaceful, happy place to frolic about. . It is exhausting pretending to be fine at work and among friends. It requires so much energy to pretend because no one wants to be around a "sick" person. . Lupus sucks energy. Some weeks, no amount of sleep is enough. One slip in my diet and I will pay. A few Easter candies will affect my joints for a week. It just sucks, plain and simple. I hate having to pretend. . In the mountains I am free to be grumpy, frustrated. I am free to lie down and have a nap. I don't have to pretend in the mountains.
I think this is important to talk about. Spiritual practice & physical practice go HAND IN HAND. Neither one thrives without the other. You are not just a body, and you are not just a soul. You are a soul living inside of a body. And therefore you gotta put in the work to take good care of both! Committing to a consistent physical practice requires immense mental fortitude and deep spiritual awareness. Making the choice to do HARD things every single day demands a mind that is well trained and a spirit that is well nourished. But there’s more to it guys – Spirit DESIRES a strong and capable vessel with clear energetic pathways to do its best work. Your physical practice makes you a clear channel. It makes you fertile ground for miracles to bloom. Your meditation, prayer, gratitude and reflection work BEST in combination with movement, sweat and breath. When you find that you are struggling with one...dive into the other. Understand the harmonious connection with which they exist. Don’t neglect either aspect of who you are.🙏🏼✨🖤 #holistichealing#teambethelight
On Monday we arrived at our cabin and then my phone wouldn’t turn on. We ended up hiking a difficult trail to a waterfall, then left from GA to TN to stay in a castle. My phone eventually turned back on but we were in the mountains so it didn’t work anyways. It was nice not having it and spending time in nature.

My equilibrium has been way off this week. Lack of exercise, poor diet, and transitioning back to days has my body in all sorts of turmoil. I’m looking at this week like a maintenance week maybe I won’t make gains this week but hopefully I won’t lose anything I worked to gain over the last month either 🤷🏻♀️. ⠀ ⠀ 📷 Panama Canal a truly awe inspiring work of man.
Talk about a fun 🐾 PAWTY! 🥳🥳🥳 Happiest Belated Birthday to my brother from another mister @tupawcshakur ! It ‘twas a bit ruff getting the crew together for a good pic, but the pawrentals made it happen! #crewlove#birthday#birthdaybehavior
Another trip to the Motherland has come to an end. From witnessing one of my closest friends walk down the aisle to basking in the last of the summer sunshine on the shores of the Murray River. With some unexpected turn of events, it has been a great and memorable trip. Looking forward to the next trip!
"May we raise children who love the unloved things - the dandelion, the worm, and the spiderlings. Children who sense the rose needs the thorn and run into rainswept days the same way they turn towards the sun. . And when they're grown and someone has to speak for those who have no voice; may they draw upon that wilder bond those days of tending tender things, and be the ones." . Beautiful words from @awilderchild Nicolette Sowder . I'm so glad dandelion crown season is appearing. We have plenty to go round for humans and bees here on the homestead. What are your favorite spring time signs?
A phone photo of my self trying to take a camera photo with the proper camera settings but realizing that cameras are foreign objects to my self and that instruction manuals are less fun than just fiddling with camera settings ... somewhere in the West on a stack of large rocks after two Modelos
