The (Un)Comfort Zone

Well, another Thanksgiving goes by that I’m spending in a different country. I thought today would be an appropriate day to write about….gratitude! But wait a second, didn’t I do that last year? Yup, sure did! You know, I think it’s kind of silly that I’m only writing...

Intention

Originally published October 26, 2012 I’ve noticed over the past ten months or so that I don’t do well with setting intentions for myself. This was first brought to my attention at the beginning of a yoga class back in January. The instructor will often tell us to set...

The Good Life

Originally published November 15, 2012 “Today, are you the person you thought you would be when you were a kid?” Cade and I had this conversation the other night, before we went to sleep in our car. Yep, we’re living in a little 1993 Toyota Corolla station wagon....

Gratitude

Originally published November 22, 2012 We realized late this morning that today is Thanksgiving (by the time you all read this, it will be Thanksgiving for you, too!). It was sort of funny how we both forgot about it, considering it’s not celebrated here. I’ve never...

The North

Originally published December 4, 2012 Hello, lovelies. We are on the ferry to the South Island at the moment, so I thought I’d take some time to fill you in the the second half of our North Island experience. We’ve been here for about six weeks at this point (has it...

And then there were two

Originally published January 12, 2013 The south island has been quite the adventure. I did a help exchange near Christchurch, we went to Fiordland and saw Milford Sound, which was easily the most spectacular thing I’ve ever seen. I would say I’ll post pictures, but I...

Equanimity

Originally published January 26, 2013 I’ve decided, and there was a lot of thought put into this, “equanimity,” is my favorite word. Just do me a favor, no, do yourself a favor, and say this word out loud. Do it. Done? Great. While this word is very fun to say out...

Bryce — A Story of Love

Originally published February 20, 2013 I always wanted a junky car. Growing up, I’d see these beat up VW Bugs/Buses and old Geo Metros and just think, “Gosh, I have to have one of those when I get older!” Unfortunately, (but fortunately) my dad wouldn’t think of...

The NewZ

Originally published March 4, 2013 Well, my time in New Zealand has come to an end. I’ve decided to go to Bali for a few weeks, and then continuing my travels from there. So, I figured I should do a quick post about some of the things I’ve learned while being in New...

Bliss

Originally published March 27, 2013 Bali. I will forever associate the word, “bliss,” with Bali. Over the last three weeks, I believe I have experienced the true meaning of bliss. Bliss is one of those words that can have different meanings to different people. For...

London

Originally published April 12, 2013 Hello Blogowers (Blog followers)! I have to make this quick as I am minutes away from falling asleep, but I felt that I should update this now because I won’t be able to for the next five or six weeks. London. London has been...

Traveling

Originally published June 19, 2013 Well, I’m back in the States. I’m going to try to keep this short because there’s so much that I’m feeling, and it’s either got to be quick or it’ll turn into a novel. This feels very strange. Yesterday was my first full day back,...

Fear(less)

Originally published September 29, 2013 This is what I’m afraid of: Public speaking. The ocean and most of the fish in it. Stillness. Heights. Riding a bike in traffic. Me and/or someone else putting me in a metaphorical ‘Box.’ Making decisions. Enclosed stairwells....

Along the Way: Camino de Santiago

**Originally published May 29,2013** I don’t know where to start. I’ve been staring at my computer screen for a couple of days trying to figure out what angle to take for this post. And I just don’t know. I could start by telling you that I walked the Camino de...
