Examining beach rocks || Booked a lot of our summer travel this weekend - I am seriously over winter and dreaming of warm sunsets and vacation. Did you see my stories today with the photo I took during @smittenandswoon “love and light” workshop? I am fearful I won’t see pretty light like that again until July 😆😭 - only half kidding.

Happy trails? A lot of you may notice I don’t tag specific trails or locations - if I geotag at all it’s always pretty general, and done with a lot of thought. For example, our National Parks are important to me, and I want to share their beauty, so I tag them generally to hopefully make other people care about them too or be inspired to visit them and fall in love as well. The few times I have tagged specifically, the decision was not made lightly and they were all rather popular locations long before social media. I hope all of you reading this take the time to think about how tagging a location may effect it and whether it may be helpful or harmful to the environment there. I posted last year about the @leavenotracecenter ‘s social media guidelines, but thought I’d mention them again, as lately I’ve seen some photographers I used to admire tag some pretty special places that don’t need more visitors or promotion, as they are being trashed and destroyed. I’ve also shared some locations privately with people here whom I thought I could trust to tag responsibly, and let’s just say I won’t be doing that any more. Some of these same photographers even posted photos where I know there are giant signs saying “keep out/stay on the trails.” It all breaks my heart and I don’t know what to do about it, other than to share my stance on it. I’ve temporarily put the link the the @leavenotracecenter guidelines in my bio, or you can find it through their Instagram. I hope you all take the time to read them and think about it all.

The snow is starting to melt around here. I think Pocket will miss it most of all. He likes to stick his nose in it, which makes him sneeze - such a goof.

Warning, long post that has nothing to do with this photo 🙈😂.

I am home from the most wonderful little getaway to the @clickawayconference (thank you to everyone who worked so hard to put it together!) It was truly beyond my expectations, so good to get some warm sun on my skin, and rejuvenating to visit with old and new photography friends.
.
I learned *so much,* especially from my sweet and talented dear friend D’Ann (@smittenandswoon ) who let me be her assistant in her amazing workshops! Thank you for sharing your knowledge and your beautiful family with me this weekend!
.
I also left feeling so inspired by my classes and the keynotes with @joyannepanton @ryanlongnecker @jasminestar and @alucidon . Thank you all!
.
I also want to take the time to give a huge thank you for a wonderful weekend to my amazing friend @charishma_chulani who agreed to fly across the country to hang out and be my roommate, and to the amazing @hello_meganboggs for letting me crash her hotel room when my flights were cancelled and I had nowhere to stay. Best roomies ever!
.
However, after cancelled flights due to #snowmageddon in Seattle, I am so, SO, grateful to be home and I literally cried when I got to my driveway yesterday, home safe to my boys. I seriously wanted to hug my sweet and safe @lyft driver Tim who drove me home from the airport while it snowed - what an angel! Nothing is better than home!
.
And thank everyone who made my trip so memorable and fun - even if just for a few seconds on busy days! I loved seeing you all! I don’t know how many people I can tag, so to name a few (I am sure I am missing someone 🙈): @melissaortendahlphotography @lizandersonbradley @therealdanaleigh @susannahbothephoto @bluehillimages @karleehooperphotography @leanna_azzolini_photography @stephaniebryan @sararecord @skye_taten @mjbissell @kfourphotography @justmywildboys @mroseillier @mickiedev @vironica @mbmphotographs @meg_nlo @missmelis1112 @kristenjohnsonphotography @inloveness @sophiagueiroscosta @sarahkossakgupta @twyla.jones @ashleymarstonphotography @heidiheaphy @kristenryanphotography @sarai.jacobs @sarahbeirnephotography @evernessphoto @dianafeil_photography @letsadventuremore

He always asks when he will be old enough to climb the mountain. I think sooner than I’ll be ready for 🏔💙 (I cropped this because I like his little smile - but to see a landscape version, check my stories.)

Congrats to @outandbackwithkids and @wymimama 🎉

Let’s head into the new year on the right foot! 4 years ago I resolved to get outside with the kids every day no matter the weather, and now it’s just part of our routine. Keen shoes have been a huge part of that journey. So, I’ve teamed up with @keen.kids to give away two pairs of kid shoes - 2 winners will each receive 1 pair of @keen.kids shoes of their choice. (My boys’ favorite Targhee waterproof boots pictured here - they live in these!)
.
To enter:
.
*Follow both @keen.kids and me @seasalt.and.evergreens
.
*Tag at least 2 friends in separate comments below - for extra entries, tag more friends in separate comments
.
*Winners will be announced the morning of 1/3/19
.
Good luck!
