I am taking matters into my own hands Mother Nature …

Where we live Fall is more a state of mind. We have a few hints of Fall weather here and there, but honestly, it’s just a less hot version of summer. Typically this doesn’t bother me, but some years I can’t wait to get a glimpse of changing leaves and cooler temperatures. This is one of those years. And since our weather is just barely cooperating I have decided that today is the day for an autumn adventure. If Mother Nature isn’t brining Fall to us, then we will go and find it!

Well, I hope you all have a day where you take matters into your own hands!!!

Lots to do …

We are still at it! Our birthday kick-off weekend is headed for more fun in the sun, more surprises and a show! What a day we have planned!

Well, I hope you all have a day where you happily have lots to do!!!

Raring to go …

We had a long day and a late night yesterday. ALL GOOD! We are kicking off September with some traveling fun for Libs and Reese, who’s birthdays are just around the corner. I’ve decorated our suite for the occasion too. We have traveled enough around holidays and special events that this has become my “thing”. My family things I’m a little kooky for doing it, but I love it! I enjoy decorating even when we aren’t at home because it makes it even more festive! Despite being up late I found myself awake insanely early agin. I am above and beyond excited to start our day … but everyone is still asleep. Ugh!

Well, I hope you all have a day where you are raring to go!!!

Wander …

Traveling is wonderful. I enjoy the planning of it and the excitement leading up to leaving just can’t be beat. I love seeing new places and revisiting places that hold fond memories in my heart. It’s all GOOD. But there is also something that I have come to appreciate even more than our planned and perfected traveling. It’s the flexibility we have adopted to reroute and change directions. I absolutely love when we choose curiosity and adventure over organized plans. There is freedom in drifting away from what is “likely” and I have found that random discoveries often help me untether my mind from expectations. I find so much joy in this! I know the thought of traveling like this sounds a bit uncomfortable to some people. Nomadic, perhaps. It certainly requires some retraining of your brain and a bit of wild abandon. But I have found that these experiences have always been worth my initial discomfort.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you wander!!!

Coffee in bed …

Sid showed up at our hotel room early this morning … with hot good coffee. She literally handed it to me while my head was still on my pillow. She is such a good kid!

Well, I hope you all have a day where you get coffee in bed!!!

Onward and upward …

Life can always be an adventure if you press on and look up. And by “up” I don’t just mean “optimistically”. I mean literally looking up from our phones and electronic devices! There is SO much of our world to see and I can’t bear the thought of missing it because I chose my phone over another beautiful life experience. And trust me, by looking up you can see some pretty incredible things, like the Pigeon Point Lighthouse that we stumbled upon. Talk about literally LOOKING UP! We are changing our route up a bit today but we are still heading north. And I simply can’t wait to see what we will discover!

Well, I hope you all have a day where you move onward and upward!!!

Risking life and limb …

Our explorations took us farther north today and we saw so many wonderful sights! We even hiked down to Shark Fin Cove. It was a little treacherous for someone like me because I am deathly afraid of heights and falling. But this was worth casting my fears aside! It was AMAZING! It’s times like these that remind me that bravery has its perks.

Well, I hope you all had a day where risking life and limb turned out beautifully!!!
