We all have things we want to add to our lives as easily and naturally as brushing our teeth (not flossing). So what’s the trick? Start small. 30 days. The big changes are probably the first to come to mind, but lets be realistic. Make a list of 10 small things you’d want to add or subtract from your life, then pick one. Don’t be afraid to pick something “easy”, it turns out doing anything for 30 days that isn’t already part of your routine is tough.
This New York Times Article touched on the recent history and risks of females traveling. It had me re-living all my enjoyable adventures with me, myself, and I. There is a beauty in the discomfort of solo travel that’s left me with many lessons and many more stories.

My desire to squeeze animals of all shapes and sizes didn’t dissipate when I stopped playing with stuffed ones. In fact, I’m officially declaring myself an animal addict and I’m here to confess the mistakes I’ve made and share the lessons of learned in search of my next animal fix.
The morning I left for San Francisco was far from typical. I barely slept that night because once again I was about to experience a first with Camp Zeno! The thought of an RV road trip was beyond any dream of ‘things to experience’ at camp. It would be a journey that would be hard to top, and once again being with my Zeno family would definitely yield me an experience that would last me my lifetime.

I just got back from three days in big sur (post to come) and my friend and I spent a lot of time discussing how new space can create new habits, how trips can be so refreshing and inspiring. What if we always focused on leaving a habit behind when going on vacation?
Part of me wishes I could say Kayla and I have been off roaming South Africa or Alaska, but that’s not the case. We’ve been taking on all life has to offer, trying to squeeze the good out of the not so good. It’s always something, you know? Health, jobs, money, relationship issues… Waiting for all of those things to be perfect could result in a serious waste of time. With that said, it’s not about just accepting “life is tough” it’s about the way we’re LIVING and what’s holding our sense of importance.
I just returned from a few days in Vegas for a dear friends bachelorette party. I haven’t been to Vegas in a couple of years. To be honest, it’s not my cup of tea or I guess I should say bucket of pina colada. I’m happy to report I had a BLAST and of course had to share a few ideas for making the most of this landlocked cruise ship.
