As many know I recently made the move back down to Bend, OR. After spending a busy summer here last year I was overwhelmed with the amazing community and opportunities. I grew to fall in love with the mountains, high desert landscape, and access to some of the most beautiful places I’ve seen. Nestled in the three sisters wilderness Bend is home to so many mountain-loving souls, and I am so thankful for the wonderful connections this community has brought me. Looking back I realized that I have been shaped by so many wonderful women in my life. From my mountain sisters to my morning day dreamers, there are so many influential women I look up to that have motivated me, inspired me, and helped me to dream big. Part of my vision for this blog is to cultivate connection and create a space where women in the outdoors inspire one another and build each other up. I’ve debated about how best to do this, but I hope I can use this blog to unite the strong and empowering souls I encounter through my own journey of life. Every different amazing woman I’ve had the opportunity to connect with has so much to offer in such a variety of areas worth celebrating. This section of my blog is to invite, celebrate, grow, listen, and collaborate together. I’m looking forward to inspiring you with the gals who inspire me.
