Just Do It!
My sister and I have a lot in common. We love to write, we normally have 20+ things going on at once and as much as we love to talk with people, we are both just fine doing our own thing. I have always wanted to have my own blog where family and friends could see what we were up to but never really knew where to start. Then one day, my big sis sent me a link and said, “I bought you a site…NOW GO WRITE.” I love her for her assertiveness and her “just do it” attitude. Thanks Sandy!
I grew up in California and as a child moved frequently due to my step-dad’s job. Having to move every two to three years will either make you become withdrawn or teach you to be adaptable and open to change; I chose the latter. I love to meet new people, try new foods and activities and I love to travel no matter how close or far. I will normally try anything once (as long as it is not hurting someone).
Feel The Fear….And Do It Anyway!
I have hit my fifth decade in life and if there is one thing I have learned, it’s don’t let worry and fear keep you from living your life to the fullest. I have a fear of heights so I went skydiving, went up in a hot air balloon (it did take a bottle of champagne to get me off the ground) and rode the tram up to the top of Mt. San Jacinto in Palm Springs. If you do not meet your fears straight on, they will dictate your life for you. I would rather write my own life story!
My passion lies in the outdoors. I am not really the museum type, I could care less about big expensive dinners and hotels and would take a cool tent or yurt any day. Backpacking, fishing, kayaking, it doesn’t really matter as long as I am outside or experiencing new cultures. I am not overly fit but other than carrying around 50 extra pounds, I am healthy.
Family Rocks More!
Family and friends mean the world to me. This blog is for them, to help them remember fun times together, to remind them that we are capable of writing our own life script and most of all…just to get out there and live! You are welcome to join the journey with us!
