Happy National Beer Day from me and @beermeradio! Reposting this glorious photo from that day @monroesarahjane and I toured De Dolle and drank beers in one of the most charming tap rooms EVER. (Also, we befriended a group of Belgian Boy Scouts.) Beer connects me to wonderful people and experiences. 🙏

Making amends to the trail gods for riding a trail that was probably too muddy. BUT, the joy of riding with my kiddo through the forest! I’m soaking up his quiet wisdom, noticing the way he considers picking himself up after any fall to be part of the fun. “You need to do things that are fun,” he told me quite pointedly today. NOTED! ❤️

What a strange thing!
to be alive
beneath cherry blossoms.
—Kobayashi Issa

Nature heals me. Always has. Always will.

Remembering how much fun I had creating this zine for @travelportland! It’s international women’s day today, and I’m celebrating by continuing to fight for gender equality in every way I can. I’m also celebrating all the women who continue to love and support me no matter what. I love you all so much. 💞💪🍻

Celebrating past generations of women who fought their fights. And those of us in the beer industry who show up and love every cheers. Here’s to all of you!

PSA: Friday beers taste SO GOOD. 🍻

Some shout outs for the peeps who gave My Beer Year love this week. Big thanks to @davidnilsenbeer for chatting with me about my Cicerone journey for @porchdrinkingco. And @big_hair_dontcare is reaching her goal of reading more and studying for the Cicerone exam by reading my book. Plus! @arborguesthousepdx has both of my books on hand for guests to enjoy. LOVE IT. ❤️🍺❤️
