I turn 26 tomorrow and I have mixed feelings about it and kind of just wish I was back on this random bridge in Venice watching the sunset through a fence hole

“Oh, there's a river that winds on forever. I'm gonna see where it leads. Oh, there's a mountain that no man has mounted. I'm gonna stand on the peak. Out there's a land that time don't command Wanna be the first to arrive.“ -Lord Huron . . Pretty much sums up my desire for adventure.

I've been spending a lot of time in the forest collecting magerial for my current series on our incredible forest ecosystems of the Pacific Northwest. I just wanted to share this image of a young big leaf maple thriving in the understory of a mostly conifer-dominated forest. To read my first blog post in the series talking about one of the conifer species seen in the background, go click the link in the bio!

The bowls are back! It’s fall and these bowls will be making regular appearances on the menu. This week it’s the fajita bowl. Since we focus on creating menus with as many local and seasonal ingredients as possible, we thought we’d show you a few ways of how we transition our menu. • We shop the farmers markets and produce stands and then plan our menus based on what’s available. • Toss out the salads and focus on cooked veggies. Most of the veggies that are in season right now taste best cooked. Cooking veggies make certain nutrients more bio available too. So we load up our soups and stews with veggies. And cook up extra servings of roasted veggies. • More grains, starches, and beans. We tend to naturally crave these things more in the fall and that’s because our bodies can use the extra carbs during the colder months. So that means lots of squash, and more organic beans and rice type dishes.

Hello! @zachnicholz here with another Sombrescapes original. When at Canon beach in Oregon, I took this photo. It was raining and was a very dark evening. When walking on this beach with my son and fiancé, I saw this seagull standing in a perfect spot on the beach so I snapped a quick photo. I feel like this is a photo that almost perfectly sums up Canon Beach in the later part of the year and Haystack Rock, being a bird sanctuary. ______________________________________________ ➣ If you like this photo, head on over and check out my page @zachnicholz and as always, please tag #sombrescapes for a chance to be featured. ______________________________________________ ➣ ➣ ➣ #the_folknature #rsa_outdoors #theoutbound #northwestcreatives #beyondthelands_ #adventureinspired #mountainstones #exploretocreate #artofvisuals #amongthewild #eclectic_shotz #folkgreen #visualsofearth #agameoftones #roamtheplanet #folkgood #outdoortones #exklusive_shot #folkscenery #artofvisuals #theimaged #pnwonderland #wildernessculture #depthsofearth #createcommune #welivetoexplore #roamtheplanet #greatnorthcollective #stayandwander

Just down the street from our house is this nice little park with a fenced off-leash area that @cody_poodle_roo loves to go to every day. It also has some nice trails with one that goes out to the swampy edge of the lake. Naturally, this silly dog heads out there soon after his visit to the groomer’s. #pnwdogs 🐶🐾♥️ • • • • • • #pnw #dogsofinstagram #northwestcreatives #pnwdogsofinstagram #lake #lakelife #poodle #instagood #dogoftheday #ig_countryside #igdogs #livewashington #washingtonstate

How about we just skip fall and head straight for Winter? #letitsnow • This is my favorite winter photo, captured on a questionable snowy excursion with @brendanramseyphotography , @michaeljlindquist , and @raymondstiehl It is also happens to be one of the large prints that will be up in October at @stretchandstaple ! Are you ready for winter?

as a woman- i’ve always been held to a higher standard than men. as a differently abled person, i am given a different standard- but i couldn’t even tell you what that is. as a mother, i am held to the highest standard, regardless. so what does that mean when i have a pinched nerve that feels like fire down my limbs & knives in my spine? but have a baby to feed. & photos to edit. & manuscripts to submit. & a home to clean. insurance. lawyers. & only hand to use. running from thing to thing & every thought gets interrupted. add high functioning anxiety disorder & ptsd in the mix. you start to think that insanity is imminent. the body & mind can only take so much- but i’m infamous for ignoring that & being hospitalized for extreme fatigue bc it all catches up. anxiety robs me of sleep, ptsd affects my appetite. my speech slows. strain & pain build til i feel like a million bricks & can’t even stand. i withdraw & inevitably a roommate takes me to the ER. the pressure of building a sustainable life for my daughter in the event i evolve past this world, hopefully decades from now- has just intensified my fears & determination to be prepared for them all. i’m continually learning new methods for handling pain/limitations/GAD/PTSD. namely yoga, cannabis, meditation, art, nature. but despite my best efforts these past few weeks i have felt on that brink of shut down. so my super supportive partner encouraged me to see our doc. if you know me, you know that that was really hard. i sat & wept, explaining my answers on the intake form. why i can’t sleep or eat for days sometimes. how difficult it is for me to do simple tasks sometimes. but when my anxiety is controlled- my body relaxes. my pain decreases. my ptsd is more lax. & i become more of who i am again. able to juggle everything. so while i still feel like i’m coming out of a haze, i’m proud of myself for recognizing my own needs/limits & getting help. & i want to encourage everyone out there dealing w chronic health issues, physical or mental, that you are not alone. reach out. you are a magical beam of stardust. & if you needa hear it, you are LOVED+VALUED. thanks for sticking it out. love, b

When I first got Instagram back in 2011 I NEVER posted photos of myself. I was self conscious and didn’t like the idea of people judging me. @instagram has been something that has challenged that insecurity and helped me push past that silly idea that people don’t care to see my face. I like this photo a lot because it was captured at a very pivotal time in my life. I was growing at an exponential rate and experiencing more joy and freedom than ever before. It reminds me of the beautiful season I was in at the time.

Our Self Care Sunday #SundaySelfCareHappyHour this week is take time to reflect 💕 Maybe think about what your moments of Pride or Resilience have been this week, I got to thinking about this today when I was listening to the Lion King soundtrack. Stay with me on this one... We are all wonder women who most probably go over and above for other people in our little circle, in our family, in our tribe. We are all spinning a LOT of plates and so let's take a step back and ROOOOAAARRR with pride. We deserve to take time to reflect (write it down if it helps ) and think of everything we have overcome or even the smallest 'I am proper proud of this' moments this week or month! As a small business owner there are ups and downs, amazing moments and amazing people you meet along the way. I am proud of what I've achieved this week and so I'm going to take the time to celebrate my wins and so I can fill up my self care cup with pride, cake and gin. Cheers to you Northern Wonder Women! Feel free to shout out about your wins this week or a small business you know of (or run!! ) who should be proud of themselves this Sunday 💕💕💕 Some of my faves are @miabellabeautywellbeing @evanssentcreations @cheshirehomefragrance @sasiwarrior @cocoatreemcr @hello_pea_and_me @boxtyltd 😘😘😘😘😘 #beproudofyou #beyourself #smallbusinesssunday #Selfcaretips #sharealittlesunshine #SundaySelfCareHappyHour #nourishnorthernmamas #manchesterlife #feedyoursoulfindyourtribe #creativemamas #northwestcreatives #selfcaresunday #selfcareisntselfish

I have so many shots coming from this location and a TON from yesterday! I had the chance to do a sunrise canoe with an incredible group of people that I’ve only known for about a month. I already feel like we’re on the road to becoming some of the closest friends ☺️ If I have one takeaway from this summer it’s to get out and do the things you want! Reach those bucket list goals and SAY YES!

As seasons change, I am so grateful to own my business. I can change my daily schedule to work around my family and wherever the wind takes us, and the best part is there is no boss there to bat an eye! This freedom and the ability to create art is why I became a florist, and I’m thankful for it every day. What do you love about your Autumn plans?⁣ ⁣ #pdx #pdxwedding #pdxflorist#oregon #oregonwedding #oregonflorist#portlandoregon #portlandoregonwedding #portlandoregonflorist#pnw #pnwwedding #pnwflorist #oregonbride #downtownportland #northwestcreatives #momboss #smallbusiness #brideandgroom #weddingceremony #weddingarch #weddingflowers #eweddinginspo #oregonbride

What to you defines the word strong? For me it’s knowing that the possible outcome for something might not be what you want but giving it your 110% effort anyways. It’s finding yourself in hard times and pulling yourself through. It’s being there for the people in your life and knowing when you need to take a step back to realign yourself. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Maybe for you (& myself ) being strong means you worked hard in the gym and met your goals for your session. Maybe you’re feeling strong and are ready to kickstart your fitness lifestyle. However you see the word strong in your life you should always feel strong too. Do you ever buy new active wear and feel like the boss that you are? Even if that means watching a whole season on Netflix in your workout clothes. 🤷🏼‍♀️ Hey, to me that still means you completed a marathon!! 🙋🏼‍♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @astoria_activewear Code: KASSI15 for 15% off!! Seriously these are my new favourite pair of leggings. 🙌🏼💚

⁠One of the iconic shots of Mount Rainier NP. I was a little bummed that there weren't any clouds for this sunrise, but the alpenglow made up for it and was really beautiful.⁠ The reddish glow comes from light reflecting off particles in the lower atmosphere. Alpenglow happens just before sunrise (or after sunset ) and, because of this, I almost missed this shot. Like usual, I hit the snooze button a few extra times and arrived for this sunrise a little later than I had planned. When I got there, the red was already lighting up on the mountain, so I ran down to the lake to set up. Fortunately, I got a few shots off before the color faded. I kept shooting through sunrise, but the predawn shots were my favorite. I wrapped up the shoot by making a large amount of coffee in the parking lot before taking off for another part of the park. These early mornings are always a little rough on me, but overall, it was a really fun shoot!⁠ ⁠ #adventureculture #adventuretravel #optoutside #campvibes #finditliveit #fulltimetravel #goneoutdoors #keepexploring #keepitpublic #publiclandowner #leavenotrace #keepitwild #nomadlife #rei1440project #stayandwander #theoutbound #traveldeeper #pnwonderland #WanderWashington #upperleftUSA #pnwcollective #thatPNWlife #northwestcreatives #pnwdiscovered #washingtonexplored #CascadiaExplored #NorthwestIsBest #nationalparkgeek #usparksandmonuments #national_park_photography

“The clearest way into the universe is through a forest wilderness” ~ John Muir ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The last few weeks have been a rollercoaster. A fresh new professional role, a dangerous but epic climb, new friends made and future adventures planned. It’s been so gratifying that through it all, I’ve always been fortunate to have a great crew behind my back pushing stuff onwards. Thank you all! 👊
