I’ll be fine, until I am not…..

Stolen? No,  I think the word that is more conducive to my feelings right now is “hijacked.”   Hijacked:  to seize by force or threat of force.   Two weeks ago, I was excited for the travels and adventures that were on my calendar for the next 6 weeks. Let’s run them down: *A quick … Continue reading I’ll be fine, until I am not…..

Iceland Adventure: Day 4, Part 2

Who knew it would take so long to journal a trip, but there was just so much we saw, and then not enough...... ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I feel like we just flew through and past the small town of VIK.

Road 744 and PTSD

Whenever I travel....I like to bring back two things from my trip.  A refrigerator magnet and a coffee mug. Mike was looking at the magnets in Reykjavik and asked if I preferred the one that just said, "Iceland" or the one that said "I Survived  Iceland."   I chose the latter. Now, don't get me wrong, … Continue reading Road 744 and PTSD

Our Adventures Part 1 – August 2014

2014 has been a year of "intention" for Mike and I. The intention to be grateful everyday, no matter the circumstances. The intention to be still and live in a state of conscious and spiritual awareness. The intention to put our family first above any outside commitments. The intention to live  financially free. The intention to start … Continue reading Our Adventures Part 1 – August 2014
