I can’t wait …

This evening my son George is coming home from college after finishing up his sophomore year. Sid is done with her semester next week. I also realized today that Libs and Reese only have three more Fridays left in their school year. The anticipation of summer and all its’ adventures is just so EXCITING!!!

Well, I hope you all have a day where you CAN’T WAIT!!!

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!!!

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!!!

An open heart and a desire for adventure …

Summer always has me a little dreamy and a bit wanderlust. OK, a lot dreamy and a TON wanderlust. HA! Long sunny days and warm nights somehow spark a renewed energy into my soul. And I just can’t wait to see what each new day brings. Summer is awesome that way.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you wake up with an open heart and a desire for adventure!!!

I forgot …

We were out all day yesterday exploring and I did something that I don’t think I’ve ever done before. 

Blog … woman. You have a daily blog. Oooops!

Well, I hope you all have a day where you have so much fun that you forget your normal routine!!!

A different kind of adventure awaits …

Although by the feel of our weather you would never know that autumn has arrived. But it has! As much as I love summer this season is often a welcome change. Despite all the back-to-school business and looming craziness of the holidays, life somehow gets a little bit cozier and fun takes on a whole new shape. I am proud to say that we have a lot of family traditions, and during this time of year we have TONS that fill my heart with a special kind of joy. And I simply can’t wait to start them all over again!

Well, I hope you all have a day where a different kind of adventure awaits!!!

Something new …

I just love filling our weekends with seasonal things to do. Today we are off on another Fall family adventure! It’s something we’ve never done before too. We are headed to Sea World’s Halloween Spooktacular! We have been members at Sea World, off and on for years, but we have never attended this event. So I’m super excited for this “first”!

Well, I hope you all have a day where you look forward to something new!!!
