“If the stars were made to worship so will I
If the mountains bow in reverence so will I
If the oceans roar Your greatness so will I
For if everything exists to lift You high so will I
If the wind goes where You send it so will I
If the rocks cry out in silence so will I
If the sum of all our praises still falls shy
Then we'll sing again a hundred billion times”

Asheville's trees are beautiful. They're so popular that they bring people from all over the world to watch the leaves change each fall. They're also a vital public health resource: They control storm water runoff, fight heat waves, improve our mental health, and soak up CO2.
But our trees are under attack. According to a recent study by the city, Asheville has lost 6.4% of its tree canopy in just the last 10 years. Developers in most of the city can cut down as many trees as they want, with no consequences.
That's why it's past time for the city to hire an urban forester, implement an urban forest master plan, and enact a tree protection ordinance. We need to protect our trees while we still have the chance.

The National Gingerbread House Competition this year was ridiculous. There were about 20 entries that could have gotten into the top 10.
I think if I had to choose my favorite, it'd be this one. @cbeddalledibleart is majorly talented and her fairy house was incredible. Look at the details!
(Left)AFTER (right)before, got highlights put in my hair today 🥰 first time I’ve done something like this for myself in a long time and it felt great. I went to @amelia_ruby_hair and she did amazing she was very friendly, open, non pushy, at first I was very nervous about everything but as soon as I sat in the chair to begin she made me feel at home and comfortable, you can tell she cares about her customers as family instead of in and out service like other salons I’ve been to. I will definitely be going back to her, I recommend everyone to go to her!! #hairhighlights 💕 #ashevillenc#ashevillesalons my hair feels/looks alive again 😆😍

After having my daughter Palmer and with another baby on the way, my approach to buying a home is completely different than it was pre-baby. The mom in me runs through all different scenarios and surrounding areas when previewing a home with buyers. Working with a variety of clients, from newlyweds, to parents, furbaby parents, and grandparents, this new perspective is more helpful than I could have imagined. No matter the current season of life, everyone wants to feel safe in their home to protect the family they cherish. 👨👩👧👦❤️🐾⠀
First I think of Safety. Safety is key, we can all agree on that. I ask myself, Is the neighborhood or area safe? Is the house in a safe and habitable condition? ⠀
Now onto the outdoor space. Is there an outdoor area for all ages to be outside and enjoy the fresh air?☀️⠀
What about the community? Does the community resemble the family looking to buy the home? Are their neighbors at similar stages of life?🏘⠀
These are all the questions I will ask. You can trust me in helping you and your family find the perfect home because #YouDeserveTheBest . ✅⠀

Home is such a dynamic word... 🏡 💕
Is home where you are born? Or where you lived most of your childhood? How about where you live now? Your ancestors’ home? That special place you find when traveling? Or how about your own unique combination? I think we all get to choose how we want to define it 🤗 🌟
I’ve lived in the Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina since August 2008. For 11 years Boone and Asheville have been my home, I was born in Atlanta, Georgia and grew up in Charlotte, North Carolina. Some of the places my ancestors are from include Cuba, Tenerife in the Canary Islands, Spain and Ireland. Those places are all very special “homes” to me in their own way however these mountains feel like my truest home. ⛰ Where do you feel most at home ? 🌳 📷: @darcywadeart

There is a science to your survival.
There is a chemistry to your courage.
There is a physics to your power.
There is astronomy to your ancient. 💫
Allow no one the opportunity
or the moment to take it away.
So you might be curious, why all the adventures lately ? ✨
One reason is the past year I have been working on creating a healing business that would be impactful, meaningful, sustainable and integrated with the life I want to live. I have been planning intentional adventures related to nutrition & intuition. Soon articles, resources, & services will be up on my website. 💥 Do you have any questions about nutrition, health, intuition, etc.? ✨
I want to know what *you* want to learn about, so I have created a survey so I can create the most nourishing, juicy content for *you*. ✨
Please take the survey, the link is in my bio! 🤗
Thanks in advance!! ✨ .

I am ecstatic. 🧚♂️ This picture represents a lifetime of dreaming, a goal achieved, an arrival and an adventure beginning ... 🌟
I am honored to know & work with my talented friend @ivanadesancic , do yourself a favor and follow her collection of gorgeous, strong feminine photographs. ❤️ I’m thrilled for what’s coming next, it feels surreal. I’ve been working on projects related to the Amazon which I will share soon. I’ve also been busy working on my new business , nannying for such special little people , seeing friends and family when I can, & integrating my experiences in the Amazon Rainforest. #woah 🍀
In one week I’m flying to Dublin, Ireland with @kendra.brooke.warren & her sweet momma @westashevegas ! On Tuesday I will meet up with my dear friends from my Expressive Arts cohort and together 🧚♂️🧚♀️🧚♂️ we go to Wexford for the International Expressive Arts Symposium. I am eager to share this adventure as well.
Exploring locations off the beaten path is where you can find true beauty. Sometimes those random pull offs aren’t so random, it just might take some searching to unveil the beauty it has to offer.
