Do anyone else’s dogs go crazy when they see you get out your hiking or backpacking packs? Last night Aspen was just lounging around on my bed like she usually does when I get home from work. However, when I brought my pack into my room to start packing for the weekend, her ears perked up and she got super excited.
I love that my dog loves adventuring so much. One of the biggest reasons I got a dog was because I wanted an adventure partner in crime! And let me tell you, Aspen does not disappoint. She absolutely loves hiking, camping, backpacking... if it’s outside, you name it - she loves it. Not only does she love it, but she is such a loyal companion. She always sticks by my side or if she runs down the trail, she will come back and touch base with me before she runs off again.
Seeing Aspen get so excited makes me more stoked to adventure too. It’s amazing how dogs can enhance our experiences in life. That’s just one of their many amazing qualities. 🐾🖤

I sometimes question if I'm making the right moves in life.
At 27, my life is filled with uncertainty. I have 2 entrepreneurial ventures with no stable "career income." I mostly travel alone with no time taken to meet somebody to spend my life or have children with. Hell, I don't even know where I'll be sleeping or what state I'll be in two weeks from now.
But what I do know is what makes me happy. Being outside and surrounded by Mother Nature's creations make me happy. Travelling to new locations and meeting new people makes me happy. Sharing my passion for Harry Potter and connecting with Potter fans through Simply Potter makes me happy.
What else should matter?

Those who are truly enlightened, those whose souls are illuminated by love, have been able to overcome all of the inhibitions and preconceptions of their era. They have been able to sing, to laugh, and to pray out loud; they have danced and shared what Saint Paul called 'the madness of saintliness'. They have been joyful - because those who love conquer the world and have no fear of loss. True love is an act of total surrender. || Paulo Coelho
Everything is connected; once you understand that, everything starts to make sense. Every soul you’ve come across, every choice you made - good or bad, has lead you to where you are today. Trust in the process of life, and it will take you to incredible places.

Swingin’ into the holiday weekend like... 🙌🌎 We hope everyone has lots of fun adventures planned! #GlyderGirl @wzylouisey is wearing our Cross Back Long Sleeve and High Power Short in Alberta ✨ #WeAreLimitless
The face you make when you are your own boss and don’t have to use a vacation day for this holiday weekend. I can’t believe I spent 4 years living with 10 vacation days a year. That ain’t living people—that’s dying!
Here’s some tips:
✅work for your dreams not someone else’s
✅the 9-5 work life our parents had no longer need to be the norm. You can work and make your own schedule if you’re willing to be open minded and do work.
✅there has never been a better time to be your own boss and start your business or side hustle.
✅you got this.
I got terrible grades in high school, failed out of business school, and have always had a hard time completing things. If this girl can do it, you can too.

Cucamonga Peak is actually my least favorite of the Six Pack 😬 The Peak is outstanding but that Ice House Canyon trail can be a real ankle twister. Although after my last summit I'm beginning to like the trail more and more! No toenails were lost this time around #smallvictory
