Celebrating three trips around the sun with this beautiful woman (@dlrphoto.ca). Thankful for the love you give me, the many memories we’ve shared and the many more ahead. 📸: @urbanfigphotography

This little app is so strange in some ways.
I resisted joining Instagram for years as the idea of having a public profile creeped me out a bit. I joined it while on assignment for a writing gig, since it was mandatory, and got featured early on which is why my following grew. Because of that, I kept sharing pictures to the point that now I prefer this app over all other social media as a sort of timeline of my life.
Truthfully, I'm grateful for all the opportunities this app has given me, and have even made a few friends IRL because of this app, but while trying to ignore whatever the algorithm does, the odd thing I have noticed is that having a few followers does mean I sometimes think twice about what I'll post and therefore this is mostly just images of where I've been.
Until recently, I had decided to not really be too personal on here. I even debated whether to ever say I was preggo, since it didn't really fit with my outdoors orientated 'theme' and I was pretty sure bring pregnant was going to be a liability to some of my collaborations. But, I decided to share the news as I felt that the only storyline being told to pregnant women (or at least what was in my feed) was that you could be sexy with lingerie photo shoots or you couldn't see your toes so you were bed ridden with junk food. I wanted to show that life for me stayed the same. That you can do outdoorsy things and post photos of yourself doing so even if you do not look like you just walked out of a magazine photo shoot. That adventures big and small are equal and worthwhile. That while I might have trouble tying up my shoelaces, once they are on, I'm going to walk and groan that 1km/hr uphill until I reach that viewpoint.
I still debate whether I should just stick to pretty landscape photos with no faces showing and no internal thoughts shared, but I am starting to think that if you're following this account then you might as well get to know the person and people behind it.
Our whole world is about to change in the next few weeks, but I have a goal to try to start making this a little less impersonal going forward. Hope to stay with me for the ride.
I didn’t have cell reception while at Havasupai, so instead of posting stories, I decided to make a short film out of my videos! It was fun experimenting with this format- let me know what you think 💭

Dreaming about the day when you wake up and find
that what you’re looking for has been here the whole time.
I don’t post to pretend I’m living the happiest and best life because I’m not(but it’s pretty damn good😉). Nothing is perfect for anyone but the most you can do is stay positive and don’t give up on being the best person you can be. I think it’s normal in life to lose focus and become unmotivated to stay true to ourselves but we all just have to remember, time will pass and things get good 🤘🏽

Early morning are such a beautiful and peaceful thing.
Waking up before the rest of the world is awake and heading out on the road.
@dannis_the_mannis and I found this beauty of a spot and just spent the morning sitting watching the water, drinking coffee and waiting for the sun to rise🧡
As you can tell we didn't get much of a sunrise, but just being outside and having a view like this makes waking up before the crack of dawn worth every hour lost of sleep
Views from the top. 😭 It was so amazing up there. Breathtaking (emotionally and physically 😂). Pictures can’t even do it justice. Was SO excited when I got to the top. It wasn’t a hard climb, but it was a huge step for me! Be back next year to finish this thang. ✌🏼
Somewhere in the south of South Africa where we didn't met any leopards. I'm not really sad about that.

Werbung / Als innogy (@innogized) auf mich zugekommen ist und mich nach meinem persönlichen nachhaltigem Moment, dem #innogymoment gefragt hat, musste ich kurz nachdenken.
Viele von euch haben wahrscheinlich mitbekommen, dass ich nach dem Abitur eine Weltreise gemacht habe. Dabei habe Ich viele Erfahrungen gesammelt aber auch sehr erschreckende Dinge gesehen. Müll am Strand stand dabei an der Tagesordnung.
Aber was kann ein Einzelner schon bewirken ?
Ich verlange von niemandem sein ganzes Leben umzukrempeln. Allerdings sollte man zweimal überlegen ob man wirklich einen Strohhalm zum Trinken braucht, Obst einpacken möchte, dass ohnehin schon meistens eine Schale hat oder ob man wirklich jedes Mal eine neue Plastiktüte haben möchte. Sammelt nächstes mal etwas Müll am Strand auf, dann merkt ihr selbst wie viel ihr zusammen bekommt. Es sind die kleinen Dinge die großes bewirken können. Helft mit, unseren Planeten wieder etwas grüner zu machen!
