R O O TS 🌱💚 [then: circa 2013/14ish...and now. 🤗] remembering when...I spent a year tagging along anywhere @thinkgreen_kd would let me follow, absorbing everything....and that time I spent a magical summer in the West End with @thirdmoonbotanica and @growwhereyouare ... then another summer sweating my whole soul out with @thecosmicone at @mayflorfarms ...and then there’s what feels like forever serving up goodness with @bangctran in the classroom... and somewhere in there I did some time with @habeshainc, getting inspired by @cashawnmyers...and then got plugged into some sweet spots by @ashleynrouse ... and y’all. I could keep going. cause these aren’t the only folks to inspire your girl on the road to Here. and they still inspire me to keep pushing toward There. I like to attribute my career and growth to a tenacious spirit and an aggressively relentless pursuit of Everything. but Truth be told...tenacious as I wanna be, I wouldn’t have been able to stand up without roots. 💚 today, hands out of the soil but all over other Dreamers’ dreams...I’m keeping in mind the folks who motivated me to do what tf I want, because what We want to do is necessary. and learning to ‘grow where you are...’ has helped me to blossom and Be where I Am. so much gratitude for the chances taken on me. grateful now to let it ripple into the hands of Others. ninjas. remember who supported your growth. supporters. know your influence lingers, long after your job is done. 🌱💚🙏🏽 . . . . . . . #laborfruits#gratitude#rememberwhen#roots#community#support#strongwomen#dowhatmatters#livewithintention#staytrue#dreamchasers#earthworkers#push#grow#bloom#live#steward#share#takecare#passiton#doitforthekids🤓
I flew out to see Ryan out at Fort Lost in the Woods in October. Three flights to get there and the last one was basically a flying bus. That was terrifying for someone that isn’t a huge fan of flying. However I got there safe and Ryan was waiting for me. I had not seen him since August and was beyond excited to see him. We spent the next five days hanging out and exploring the area. We went to Battle Of Wilson Creek State Park with JD. Of course becuase they were early 20s makes they had to make curse words out of the signs. Man we were young in these photos. It was a great trip and I loved just being with Ryan. Meeting JD was a hoot and I understood why they were friends. As I continue this celebration of Ryan’s life I reflect back on how much all of his friends meant to him. JD, Jonathan, Mike, Kevin, and so many other wonderful people. I know he would be so proud to see how much all of them have accomplished over the last three years. #friendship#early20#fortleonardwood#trips#memory#saytheirnames#rememberwhen#griefjourney#fall#love#laughter
. ¿Recuerdas cuando...? Sí, aquella vez. La vez en la que caminando nos olvidamos de todo. La vez en la que juramos haber visto cosas inexplicables en el cerro cuando ya era de noche y solo nos acompañaba la luz de la luna y el sonido de las aguas chocando entre las compuertas. Cuando pregunté qué tantas cosas llevabas en tu mochila, me lo explicaste y mira tú, era algo que siempre quise hacer y ahora hago muy seguido. ¿Recuerdas aquella vez? ¿Recuerdas todas esas veces? ¿A las 8 en la Iglesia? ¿Galgo? ¿Acompáñame aquí, quiero asegurarme que cierta persona no cometa ninguna estupidez? Disculpa si pienso mucho en eso esta noche. ¿Qué le puedo hacer? Estoy escuchando la playlist que hiciste para mí. Y los recuerdos solo fluyeron. La App para escribir, la madrugada, la música, los recuerdos. Buena dosis, ¿No? ¿Qué más quiero para poder pasar el rato? No, el rato no. El tiempo. ¿Te veo a las 8 mañana? Es broma. Espero estés bien. Donde quiera que estés ahora. . Fecha: Mediados de Febrero.

The past 3+ months have looked a lot like cardboard boxes and empty gas tanks. Life ebbs and flows that way. It’s taken me a lot longer than I planned to get settled after @fefemorgan and I’s mini retirement in Europe. ⠀⠀ These pictures remind me that struggle is necessary and helpful. On the other side of these pictures are my goals, dreams and “remember when” conversations. ⠀⠀ I’m sure you all are at different levels of your life’s ebbs and flows. If you are at the top I’ll see you there shortly & if you are at the bottom I’ll see you shortly as well! 〽️🎢 #alwaysforward#yourtwenties#chipinthebucket#rememberwhen#gratitude
