theoutdoors.life 📸 @ma.r.yy ・・・ I'm ok with small moments of happiness and accepting how fleeting it may be because that's life, that's just life❣ _____________________________ A few days ago we headed back home from our east coast to west road trip. I always try to stop by to see the family in ATL whenever possible. We caught up over dinner. I remembered feeling h a p p y. Growing up, my family made it a big deal. We always gathered together over dinner, said grace, and proceeded on to share stories. Then life happened and we stopped. I recalled with them the times we had family reunions in Europe a few yrs back. My uncle made us all, didn't matter how young or old ( 50+ of us), put away our phones if we had them and come gather on the floor to just talk about our lives. How so much laughter filled the air. How rich it felt to have true connection with those you love. Looking back these were the moments I held dearest. ♡
theoutdoors.life Plan wisely and have faith in yourself. #todsl 📸@travelingfemale ・・・ It can be far too easy at times to rely on our very capable men. Sometimes we have to remind ourselves just how capable we are as women. Arriving at the summit today, 5,233 ft in the air, was worth the pain, sweat, and blisters. I know... gross. But, the pain couldn't compare to the joy of those views. It seemed impossible at times, but 10 miles later we stood proud.
theoutdoors.life Not everyone knows, but the Milky Way I'd seasonal. It is best seen during the summer months. In the winter it's not visible at all. It's also best to see the night sky during a new or quarter moon, which will create minimal light pollution. Here's one from Joshua Tree last week.
