Showcasing a little summer vibes before fall officially hits saturday. i loved this short hike and the bright green & pink-like colors mixing together throughout the trail. there were great views of a few little lakes along the way and of course amazing views of mt. rainier at the peak and throughout the trail. i just love this national park so much.

crazy to think our colors will be turning very soon (and some trails already have!). super excited to hike maple pass loop & blue lake but can't decide if it will be this weekend or next. maybe next weekend to make sure larches are closer to full swing. i get a little worried in october since snow is unpredictable & might cover up the fall foliage but would also love to do a light snow covered hike soon before it gets too crazy. if we don't go to the north cascades this weekend i have a list of trails to chose from closer to home for this weekend's hike to get a teaser of beautiful fall colors already in bloom. any of my friends in-state are always welcome to join, just dm me! autumn is such a beautiful time of year! please do yourself a favor and make sure to go on at least one fall colored hike and/or larch march before the season ends!

It's humpday, meaning we are halfway through the week and i'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel aka the weekend lol! i normally hike in the early morning but we stopped here in the evening time after a roadtrip in june to la push beach and clearly it was the right call. i just love golden hour & when the light hits through the trees perfectly when you're roaming through the forest. my wedding venue has a lot of beautiful tall trees & i'm desperately hoping for the perfect lighting that day lol! i want sunlight lol! i love our engagement photos but it was definitely a moody grey pnw day so a contrast on the wedding day would be lovely, but who knows in june when it comes to washington lol. 🤷

Happy 28th birthday to the man of my dreams, my best friend in the entire world, the one who always has my back, and my absolute soulmate 💖 words can't express how much i love and adore you and how thankful i am to have you in my life. these past almost 6 years together have been the best and i'm so excited to spend forever with you. i am so proud of the man you have become and your character in general. you are the kindest and most selfless person i know. your intellect, work ethic, loyalty, and ambition never cease to amaze me. and thank goodness you are just as secretly weird and goofy as i am lol! here's to many more birthdays, adventures, and milestones together! i love you joe and can't wait to celebrate tonight & this weekend!

Happy first day of fall!! here's a throwback to fall 2017, nearing the end of it. i'm so excited for the colors to turn in full force and to enjoy all the halloween-related things! currently on the way to enjoy a couple easy hikes with a teaser of fall colors starting to emerge. gearing up for next weekend in the north cascades for the golden larches as well as the first couple weekends in october before snow is in full force. have a happy weekend everyone!
