My love affair with winter goes in and out. I swear half of the time I am stoked to catch snowflakes and chase pow days and the other half I am craving sunshine and days where the sun waits to set until after 5 pm…
Something that always keeps me coming back to love is the magic of a snowy day. There’s something so lighthearted and pure about watching the giant flakes fall from the sky and running around trying to catch them in my mouth.
As weird as it sounds the best way to cure my wintertime blues is to spend time outdoors… no matter the weather! And because of that, I need layers that live up to the challenge. If you’ve been following me for a while then you know I am a big fan of @stiomountain and one of the biggest reasons is that (being based in Jackson Hole, WY) they know how to make clothes for mountain people.
Even in those moments where I’m missing the summer sunshine, there is no way I’d ever want to live anywhere other than the mountains… in my heart, this will forever be home! And truth be told I don’t mind having some low days here and there because it makes the good days feel even better!
If you want more details on my go-to winter adventure gear from @stiomountain pop over to my stories! Cheers to snowy day adventures that feed the soul! #lettheoutsidein#stiopartner
I’ve been going through some stuff with Bear lately (no worries— he’s okay!), which has had me feeling not only a bit emotional (regarding the fact that B is getting older and things aren’t working the same on him as they used to), but also contemplative about the seasonality of life. ⠀
When I learned how to snowboard, I began to understand the seasons. ⠀
Winter exists to make us hardier. To give us grit. To keep us varied. To force us to learn new skills. To challenge even the least creative of us to find beauty in what feels like a lack of life. And, maybe also to appreciate all that isn’t winter. ⠀
Growing older is another season. And maybe it’s much like winter. Maybe growing older exists to keep us varied, too. To teach us to find joy in occasional stillness. To test our often untested strengths. To tell us the big secret that is: we have more to offer and more to experience than movement alone (despite our deepest beliefs in keeping objects—like ourselves— in motion). And, maybe also to appreciate all that isn’t growing older. ⠀
I’m learning how to breathe in deeply all of the seasons and all of the things. ⠀
And, after all, they’re just seasons. ⠀

Det har blitt noen soloppganger på meg, men denne i Rondane hvor fjellet så ut som det stod i brann, har jeg ikke opplevd før. Det var en trollbundende magisk opplevelse på norgesturen min i 2019.
The sun is litterally making the moutain look like it is on fire. It was a magical experience I had in Rondane in 2019.
This @theo_deblic co-founder and instructor at Rise. « We first had the idea of Rise in August 2019 when with @jackpimblett we were discussing how we could improve the level of the pilots we see when we travel along. We are both professional pilots with years of experience in flying as well as teaching and we could not find any school that was giving the kind of courses we would have loved to see so we said « what if we make this school instead of search for it ? » and so @riseparagliding was born » 😬 #risenext
This is @jackpimblett co-founder and instructor at Rise. "Over the last few years I have often found myself equally as excited for someone else's progression as my own. I realised early on that I had a passion for coaching and seeing others achieve their goals, so we decided to open Rise so that I could continue that passion in a more formal capacity. I am really looking forward to working with some new pilots this year and seeing what they can achieve! "
After months of work and planning we are delighted to present Rise Paragliding!
The new school for your SIV and Acro courses.
We want to help you get safer, better and more confident pilots ! #risenext

Die Aussicht vom Balkon war wirklich genial 😊 so hatten wir von der Kirche San Giorgio Maggiore bis hinunter zu Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute frei Sicht auf den Canal Grande ☀️ .
eines unserer ersten Highlights in diesem Jahr 🙌
Wohin führt euch eure nächste Reise ? 🏝

Needed some motivation starting off this year! Printed out the 1000 hours outside tracker to keep us in check. We haven’t been traveling as much as we usually do, so we’ve gotten a bit cozy(lazy) :) . It’s a great resource for accountability & the kids love marking off the hours. Now that we’re getting a break from all the rain & storms, have to start filling up that chart! Decided to pair it with our new Wilderness Readers Collection! I saw this set on a homeschool IG page & had buy it. The set features essays, travel writings, & philosophical works of Muir, Twain, & Thoreau. So great for all the nature lovers out there 🌱🌲 Will be a great addition to our homeschool. ________________________________________________________ #naturelovers#1000hoursoutside#homeschool#getoutdoors#outdoorlife#wild#writing#winter#parks#healthylifestyle#motivate#books#natureplay#woods#learning#discover#homeschooled#reading
