Day Trip Near Nashville – Hiking With a Toddler

Day Trip Near Nashville – Hiking With a Toddler

If you’ve been following LtL for a while, you know my fond affections to hiking with my family. We used to hike quite frequently when we lived in the Pacific Northwest – one summer I actually set out a goal to hike 100 miles before we left Washington! While we didn’t rack up that many miles, we did our best and had a blast making the memories in the mean time. Since moving to Tennessee last year, I still wanted to make it a point to find kid friendly trails around Nashville and continue making those special memories with my family. ย Recently I found a kid friendly hike just south of us near Columbia that led to a beautiful waterfall!

3 Photography Tips I Practice Religiously

These last few months things have really picked up with LtL Photography. Since the beginning of 2018 I have actively pursued a genuine community of friends, creatives, clients and inspiring professionals in the Nashville area. I have receivedย suchย positive and motivating responses from just putting myself out there and reaching out to complete strangers…who knew the power of DM-ing on social media could be so rewarding! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ* Continue reading “3 Photography Tips I Practice Religiously”

When It’s Hard to Say Goodbye

When It’s Hard to Say Goodbye

I was recently asked by a friend to be featured on her business’ newsletter. She’s actually the owner of the local Stroller Strides here in Olympia, WA – a community I’ve been a member of for over a year now. Stroller Strides has given me a lot over the last 14+ months; friendships, endurance, physical and mental strength, and something special I could also involve Brooks in 3-4 times a week. When I was a new mom in a new city, I found SS on a Google search “mommy and me groups” and thought why not?? It was welcoming, comfortable, physically challenging, and offered a healthy routine I could do with Brooks with other moms in all different seasons of their life both personally, professionally, and physically…but all that aside, we were all moms just wanting to improve our physique with a community of women around us. So when Kristy asked me to write a post I was beyond flattered and humbled at the request. Below is my post to the SS newsletter, I hope you enjoy it! And if you’re local check them out! If not, you can Google Stroller Strides in your area and see if there’s a group near you! This post is not sponsored, just my humble opinion from one new mom to another! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Continue reading “When It’s Hard to Say Goodbye”
