Instagram Public Photos with #exploring

The holidays are weird. there’s a lot of emphasis on family time and belonging. and there’s a lot of feelings that go along with it.

it can be overwhelming, being surrounded by your family. the static noise of political banter, uncle jokes, grandma yelling about the burnt casserole, and hugs from everyone.

on the flip, it’s just as overwhelming to not be surrounded by folks you consider family. along with the societal pressure to be with loved ones on those days, you’re bombarded by other family pictures on social media. (really, how do they all look so happy together? are they actually wearing matching outfits?) anyway.
whatever your feelings are or situation is regarding families and the holidays, you’re absolutely not alone.

i guess there was a time in my life where every big step i took was for you.
before even properly grounding myself through transitions, i’d almost trip from looking over my shoulder to see if you were watching in approval.
cheering.
sometimes you were.

when remembering there are people close to me who have lost their moms, dads, or siblings, my slowness to process your absence becomes trivial.
embarrassing.
because i haven’t lost you.
you’re just not there anymore. or here, or anywhere.
you’ve moved on as a mom. my pictures have all been taken down to prove it.
because out of sight, out of mind. i guess.

when i take big steps now, i look to myself for approval. then i try my best to cheer for anyone who’s within reach.
and even though i know you’re not there and it shouldn’t matter, sometimes i still catch myself glancing over my shoulder for you.
because out of sight, still in my mind. i guess.

maybe could’ve written a more chill caption like “it’s the coziest time of the year🐱” to make things less awkward for will and tnf, but?

thanks for being there and for letting me do the same, love you all

This was my first time out to the mokoli’i island and i wanted my friend brittan to come with me. she didn’t have a kayak of her own so i brought an inflatable pool floatie and pulled her on my kayak with a rope. what was really a short kayak distance became a difficult, grueling paddle due to the amount of drag. we didn’t get started until later in the morning so by the time we arrived the sun was beating down on us making the top of the island sooo so hot. the next time i paddled out here i came solo and before the sun even rose which was incredible. on our way back i looked down and at first saw a huge rock then realized it was actually a giant sea turtle! i had never seen one so huge, he had barnacles all over his face due to his old age. it’s been too long since i used my kayak! that’s what summer will be all about (: i decided to come back and post this photo by itself, i did as a slide earlier and the quality was so awful...not sure why 📸: @brittan_byrd

Oh flashbacks to the warmer days.
interesting fact : this day is a day that changed my world. nothing romantic and cute. it actually was one of my worse injuries of all time. the place is still beautiful, and you still cant keep me out of the woods. my trails are just a little less rock climbing now. 🤷‍♀️

Trondheim, a very active student city in the north !
.
certainement une de mes villes préférés en norvège !! trondheim est une ville très animée de pars les festivals qui y ont lieu ! ainsi que sa grande communautée étudiante qui profite d'une ville qui allie architecture traditionnelle avec ces maisons sur pilotis et ses façades colorés dans un cadre moderne et fun !
mon petit coup de cœur de norvège, j'y ais etait hébergé par un groupe d'étudiants avec qui j'ai pus découvrir une norvège nouvelle, une ville en fêtes !

E quando quest'inverno qui la neve scenderà
bianca sarà la valle
ma sotto il pino antico un bel giglio fiorirà
il giglio dell'esplorator

Les photos ratées font parties de la vie. et comme instagram fait aussi un peu parti de nos vies à l’heure actuelle, j’ai décidé que les photos ratées feraient aussi parties de mon feed instagram. voilà c’est dit! 😋 !
je disais l’autre jour que j’aimerais qu’instagram soit plus vrai, plus authentique... et bien ça commence aussi par là. a défaut de fuir ce réseau a tout jamais et de m’enfermer dans une grotte, je peux aussi essayer de partager les photos de la vraie vie, les photos dites ratées, moches ou juste rigolotes, des photos qui témoignent juste d’un moment imparfait, incontrôlée, sincère, d’un moment dans le mouvement. alors je vous le dis : il y en aura d’autres! 🌈
-
vous êtes nombreux-ses à me dire que vous vous marrez en regardant mes stories, que vous découvrez sous un autre angle les états unis et que ça vous donne finalement envie d’y aller 🥰 merci pour vos petits mots au quotidien ♡ —
.
et sinon... bryce canyon! je pense que c’est sans aucun doute l’un de mes endroits préféré aux usa. c’est vraiment un endroit unique. ce que vous voyez à perte de vue ce sont les hoodoos. une légende sacrée des indiens d’amérique qui habitaient cette région, dit que les hoodoos seraient des petits êtres pétrifiés et figés dans la roche parce qu’ils auraient mal agis par le passé 😌 et comme le dit @hakunamaya_ dans l’un de ses anciens posts, je m’en tiendrais aussi à cette hypothèse que je préfère à la version géologique 🙊intriguant non?
