2018: A Reflection & My Hope for You for the New Year

I started this year a different person. I knew I didn’t want to be the person I was in 2017, but I didn’t know how to change. I didn’t know what to change. I felt stagnant, unfulfilled, and a little bit down. I wasn’t…

Journey Into Happiness: Introspection

Today’s topic is a big one. It’s something I’m definitely still working on, and it’s something that will always consciously take work. To me, this topic is the FIRST STEP toward achieving true happiness – the cornerstone of everything else in this journey into…

Colorado: Silverton & Ouray

In late May, we headed to south-central Colorado for our annual white water trip. It was amazing as usual. Along the way, we visited two of my favorite towns in all of Colorado: Silverton and Ouray. Based on my past experiences and those from…

Off The Beaten Path: St. Augustine, Florida

Sun, good food, history, and even ghosts… If you are looking for a vacation with more than just beaches, look no further! I have family in Florida and used to spend every summer there. I’ve spent a lot of time all over the state:…
