It was a lovely morning, a slight breeze was coming in from the Atlantic, a misty drizzle. Through it all Ireland displayed color everywhere.

The first day I saw a powerbike, I was in a taxi, stuck in a very rare Abuja traffic.
When the bike zoomed past us, the taxi driver threw a series of curses at the rider; placing emphasis on the recklessness of riding such dangerous things and the waste of money.
I will never forget what a passenger said: "Are you sure you're not just jealous he is out of traffic and you're still here with us? Just tell us".
PS: The rider was a woman. And the bikes in this photo aren't powerbikes. 📷: My phone

I’m slowly sinking into autumn. Wearing warm clothes, wearing earthlike colors, drinking hot beverages, being present in the misanthropic moods this season gives.🍂🍁 I can’t say I’m very happy that winters’ coming, but at least it means we are one day closer to spring. Every day 😄☝🏻
Here's my confession: I have no idea what kind of mushrooms these are. I know that they're orange and that they're cute. The truth is, I'm a bit lazy. If I don't think it's something I can eat, I usually won't take the time to try and identify it. And I feel a bit guilty about posting these photos and not knowing this stuff. The reality is that there are only three orange mushrooms I am interested in eating: chanterelles, lobsters, and candy caps (which I have yet to find). And these aren't them. ⠀
But, in my defense, one of the key ways to properly identify a mushroom is through the color of its spore print. This means I would have to pick at least one of them, and I don't want to pick it if I don't need to. I don't know if these mushrooms are abundant or endangered. So, I feel its important to leave them undisturbed. My best guess is that they are some type of cortinarius or waxy cap species.
Når dagene flyter sammen, og er både travle og fulle av gjøremål, men du likevel tar deg tiden til å observere lyset og reflektere over livet; å huske på de som ikke lengre er her, på hvor du ønsker å være om et år, på hva som gjør deg lykkelig her og nå.🍃 Dagene utfolder seg ulikt, og det kan dukke opp vanskelige tanker både i løpet av dagene og når jeg skal sove. Men jeg er så takknemlig for denne nye starten, og alle planene jeg kan realisere for meg selv. Så takk, universet. For at du står på min side, tross alt ✨
Il y a des routes comme ça qui nous emmène vers des petites merveilles...
There are roads like that which takes us towards small marvels....

I think it’s pretty cool to hike around a lake that was formed by a volcanic eruption. Coldwater Lake, you didn’t disappoint. Not a ripple in the water, blue skies, orange and yellow leaves and the best company I could’ve asked for on an 11 mile walk!
Was feeling good up to this point... then I hit the waist deep snow.
(Omg! Put some clothes on you degenerate!😉) This was 2.5 weeks ago swimming in Oak Creek, and let me tell you: those were the days! Suddenly, we have two snow storms already in October and it's 35 degrees out. I just know we're going to have a record snowfall the year we try to live in a trailer. Sigh. I will try to post the winterizing tips we've learned, but first and foremost- if you're going to live in a trailer where you get snow, do not bother buying a fixer upper or one too old. Older trailers were not built with the intention of full time living. Also related- don't be tempted to buy a cute old airstream (that was what I originally wanted- but imagine what it's like to heat a tin can in the snow), and 💯 look for ones manufactured as "four-season". Even that is still going to be damn cold and you're going to have to spend more money winterizing it, but it's better to start out ahead than trying to fix everything! Also if you are someone that knows about #trailerlife in the winter, we are open to more tips.❤️ Farewell sweet summer. (📷- @mthackrah_ )
My sweet Nora and I were coloring the other morning when she randomly stopped, looked at me and said, “Mom, God made you to hike.” These precious words struck a cord in me so deeply. Was He speaking to me through my little three year old?! I’ll be the first to admit, I crave deep connections. I love people and care deeply, and feel most vulnerable on a trail, where I’m closest to my God. So when my little girl spoke those words over me, I knew I needed to get on a trail. Be in the woods basking in His beauty, because it’s been too long and I’m feeling it.

I could sit here all day. Listening to violent waves crash among these rocks, watching the strength of the sea.

🍃 Affirmasjoner 🍃 Jeg er takknemlig for mannen i mitt liv. For god kaffe om morgenen, for problemer som løses, og for venner som stikker innom på uanmeldt besøk. 🍃 Hva er du takknemlig for i dag?
