Looking back through some old shots from a swell last fall. Hoping this weekends snow storm lives up to the hype.

Minnesota's forests cover just half the land it did 150 years ago... And old-growth forests, specifically, have declined by 96 percent... Currently, Minnesota's remaining old-growth forests are protected from harvest, but with recent discontinuation of government protection of thte environmen, we need to stay vigilant.

The @jjcommunity challenge for today is “Generations.” I have only recently started taking pictures of people other than my kids, so my parents have largely been left out of the mix. This one shows how eager Lincoln is to demolish the piñata while my dad looks on proudly in the background. I added a second picture too. If you swipe, you’ll see Lincoln going for the kill shot while his cousin watches.

Looking forward to syrup season 2018.  Heres a few pics from last years syrup harvest.  We have a nice mix of old, mature, and young maples in our woods.  We also tap a few Hickory & Birch each year.

Decluttering your home is an exhilerating and EXHAUSTING process. It's hard enough to stay on task, but throw in the decluttering roadblocks like items you were given as gifts, or your belongings that have sentimental value, and it's easy to get derailed and quit. ⠀

We're talking all about decluttering roadblocks on the blog today, and discussing how to overcome them, even if it feels impossible! You can do this! #linkinbio #UpNoPaSimplify

I've started on my own "Heroine's Journey" as laid out in the book "If Women Rose Rooted" by Sharon Blackie. It starts in "The Wasteland." Here's a quick summary of what I'll dig into this week: sweep aside the veil; acknowledge social economic, and political injustices; examine treatment of minorities, animals, and the environment; do something, no matter how "small"; accept responsibility; own your footprint; focus on your part rather than feeling you have to make big, dramatic actions made popular by masculine culture.

Oh what a year makes... Thinking back to the first drop, I lose my breathe... Every time. Sprains are typically worse than a break, but it felt like both. What did I do? Continued my run because I'm stubborn that way... I was only 5 minutes into my long winter run, but that didn't matter. You keep moving forward.

The second roll was nothing like the first, but I've learned to take better care of my body (the hard way) from past injuries. Take the time to heal and recover... I'm looking forward to my 30's. New adventures, new goals, more self LOVE... I'm pumped for my golden 30 mile run and other exciting things to come! 💙💙💙 #tbt #BringOn30 #NewYearNewFUN #GOLDENyear #NeverStopExploring #Travel #ThisIsMyMN #Midwest #Minnesota #Minnstagrammers #Adventure #LiveLaughLove #LiveAndLoveMN #OptOutside #Winter #KeepMovingForward #MakeTime #GoodMorning #Runner #Running #RunHappy #MyTherapy

Don’t waste your time trying to climb the corporate ladder. The coffee sucks up there, and Linda in HR is a real jerk. Climb a real ladder. It’s more fun and the view is always better at the top.

1/17/18: 3.6 miles at Ritter Farm Park.  This time I did the hilly, winding trail rather than the one I have already done. (Explorer Series/52HikeChallenge: different trail every time!) Met some lost people and was able to guide them, and the creek is slippery to traverse! Red Rambler likes the curvy trail.

Last weekend there was a @naliasevents meet-up @studioapparatusmn with all sorts of people from coordinators, assistants, stylists (make-up, hair, design) to photographers and models. Here is a video captured by @angi_klepnev of the event!

Thank you all for the wonderful words about our space. We love sharing Studio Apparatus with such a great community of artists! We are excited for more what’s to come this year!

Check out our website in the bio for booking a shoot that shows our pricing and availability or just schedule a tour to check out the place before renting.😃

I taught English as a Second Language in the Twin Cities from 2007-2017. I learned so much from the people of Burma, Laos, Thailand, Malaysia, Cambodia, Vietnam, China, Tibet, Somalia, Ethiopia, Eritria, Djibouti, Congo, Kenya, Uganda, Togo, Iraq, Morocco, Bhutan, Nepal, India, Honduras, Ecuador, Mexico... *
*
Having intimate, beautiful, and challenging experiences with so many different cultures got me questioning my own cultural heritage and my role as a White teacher of students of color. *
*
I started getting deeply curious about U.S. American culture and, more specifically, White U.S. American culture. To be honest, the more questions I asked, the more disturbed I became. I started to see the power I had been given for no reason other than my skin color, I started to see the ways I was perpetuating systems of inequity, and I began to consider what I was going to do with my privilege and power...even as I struggled to fully accept I had privilege and power, because as a female non-profit employee, I didn't think I had much of either...but I do...and that's one way white supremacy keeps it's control, so everyday, I do my best to own it and use it wisely. *
*
I decided to continue on my journey toward owning my power by contributing to a cause. I chose TreeSisters because of its focus on creating new life, employing women of color, reflecting on values, building community, and reforesting the tropics with indigenous species...also, I had been told about TreeSisters three times and I now pay attention when I'm getting repeated messages... *
*
Anyway, this is one way I chose to contribute to a more just and interconnected world... because we are all connected and what we do to harm one, causes harm to us all, right? Right. *
*
What's one of your approaches to shifting our destructive cultural narrative?
