#14 Journal More

Y’all know my love for bullet journaling runs deep…so very, very deep. And I’m totally knocking these #thirtybeforethirty challenges out of the park! Number 14 was to journal more.  And by that I mean, actually take the time to sit down and write about my day, things to remember, prayers I have, whatever comes to…

California: Day 4

As I begin to write this post, I sit swinging in my hammock… something I’ve longed to do since I hung it up for the winter last October. Today was our first full day in Yosemite. And it was amazing. Adjusting to our new surroundings was a challenge. Sleeping was not easy to come by,…

California: Day 2

Y’all… Sequoia National Park is absolutely beautiful. After spending the night in Visalia, we headed into Sequoia National Park! Full of windy roads and beautiful scenery this place is breathtakingly gorgeous… and we could not have asked for a more perfect day! We started off visiting the Foothills visitor center, where we got some advice…

California: Day 1

All day today has been a little surreal. I still can’t believe I’m here! Today started with waking up in the Hampton Inn and the most comfortable bed… EVER. I slept so well last night. Likely due to the 9+ hours of travel time and the fact that my 10:30 flight arrival into LAX was…

#1: Travel to Another Timezone

As I write this, I sit in the airport – in Chicago. Therefore – I have officially traveled to another timezone. Granted, I’m in the airport; and can’t even see the Chicago skyline – but I can check off number one on my #thirtybeforethirty list! Snapped this shot walking into the Albany Airport back home……

California Bound…

Oh y’all. In just a few days… I’m hopping on a flight to the great state of California.  I can not even believe that this is happening (considering I’ve never left the EST time zone). So what does one do when a trip is coming.  She makes lists in her bullet journal. And she shares…

The Time I Hiked Sunrise Mountain

After the trek up Cascade & Porter and my *obsession* with hiking began, I had big plans to hike the Appalachian Trail with my dog, which for some reason I wanted to name Bubba.  I’m a planner, but my follow through is often non-existent. So instead, I’ll settle for a couple of miles on the…

The Time I Spent a Week at Lewey Lake

It has been well over 10 years since I’ve actually been on a real 7 day vacation.  And I am PSYCHED (yes I said that like the cheer) about this!

The Time I Should Have Flown the WHOLE way to Savannah GA

When one of your college roommates gets married, you do what you can to make it there. If you’re smart, you’ll realize that this photo is taken somewhere in the air between Albany, NY and Baltimore, MD – both of which are a far cry for Savannah.  But like I said, when a college roommate…
