"She was the tide, always drifting in and out of the lives of those who loved her, eternally indecisive, unable to discern whether she desired the solidity and safety of land, or the wild freedom of the ocean.” Seaside, Oregon USA #worldtravelbook #theoutbound #passionpassport #my_365 #visualsoflife #peoplescreatives #worldtravelbook #justgoshoot #exploretocreate #seasideoregon #cascadia #seasidebeach #pacificnorthwest #photoaday #snapshot #beautiful #instagood #cascaderange #picoftheday #color #seashells #oceanbreeze #oceanwaves #naturephotography #agameoftones #nature #sunset #ig_nature #ig_world_colors #igworldclub #exclusive_shots
"Grace is finding a waterfall when you were only looking for a stream" For as long as I can remember I always dreamed of escaping the hustle and bustle of the city and exploring the beauty of Washington & Oregon... & now with great joy I can finally say I have trekked the Cascadia. From exploring Seattles Public Market and indulging in a much talked about clam chowder bowl to soaring high above the clouds to the top of the world famous Space Needle to walking where the beach sand and Pacific Ocean meet in the city of Seaside to visiting the city of one of my favorite childhood movies & climbing 164 steps to the top of the Column in Astoria to being submerged in the constant mist of water while hiking Multnomah Falls, Oregon. Lately, I've been so busy to the point of it taking a toll on my mental/physical health, so I decided now is a better time than ever to just get away, whatever I left behind will still be there when I return but right now my happiness and well being need to come first. I normally only post still shots but I thought I'd mix it up with a couple videos but all in all the coming posts are of my travels. My journey does not end here, more states, rivers, lakes, and oceans yet to come... but I hope you enjoy my adventures of the Pacific Northwest.

"A beautiful day begins with a beautiful mindset. Every day you wake up, think about what a privilege it is to simply be alive and healthy. Stop focusing on the negatives and everything that could go wrong and start thinking about what could go right. Better yet, think of everything that already is right. Be thankful for nights that turned into mornings, friends who turned into family and past dreams and goals that turned into realities. Use this mindset of positivity to fuel an even brighter today and tomorrow."

"Teach me how to trust my heart, my mind, my intuition, my inner knowing, the senses of my body, the blessings of my spirit. Teach me to trust these things so that I may enter my sacred space and love beyond my fear, and thus walk in balance with the passing of each glorious sun."

“Some people look at sunsets as the end of something beautiful that once was: the day. Others see it as simply a new beginning to a different but equally beautiful thing: the night. Perspective, my darling. It’s always perspective.” Jemez Mountains, New Mexico USA #worldtravelbook #theoutbound #passionpassport #my_365 #visualsoflife #peoplescreatives #worldtravelbook #justgoshoot #exploretocreate #instagoodmyphoto #photo #photos #photoshoot #gf_skies #picture #photoaday #cloudstagraem #sunrises #sunrise_and_sunsets #instagood #picoftheday #photooftheday #sunrise_sunsets_aroundworld #photograph #ig_hdr_dreams #ig_sunsetshots #outdoorphotography #sunsetphotography #ig_color #clouds_of_our_world #ig_clouds
"I love early mornings when I feel like a rest of the world is fast asleep and you’re the only one who’s awake and everything feels like it isn’t really real and you kind of forget about all your problems because for now it’s just you, the world and the sunrise."

"I crave space. It charges my batteries. It helps me breathe. Being around people can be so exhausting, because most of them love to take and barely know how to give. Except for a rare few... Give me real or give me space."
