Question from She Explores.

Next year my husband and I are planning on visiting all of the National Parks. To prepare for this I have been seeking out all types of adventure stories. I recently read She Explores,a collection of women’s adventure stories. This book shared diverse stories from women involved in the outdoor industry. The book is beautifulContinue reading “Question from She Explores.”

Finding Happy

Yesterday was just a regular Monday. My job had sent me out to Stratham for training. It is only 10 minutes from the New Hampshire Seacoast, so I took a ride. I have always been adventurous at heart, but I haven’t always followed through.   My life used to be driven by other peoples expectations.Continue reading “Finding Happy”

Finding Happiness

I have been away, taking some time to regroup. Late in 2018 we faced some challenges that forced us to move in with family. We traded in a wide open country lifestyle for a hectic urban one. It was hard, but we needed to get out of a toxic situation. Yet it has been anContinue reading “Finding Happiness”

Overcoming Chaos

To say this weekend has been rough is an understatement. My instinct is to keep things private. To discuss things is to let that wall down. To let people in is to show weakness. It goes against everything that has been bred into me since childhood. Yet sharing can be cathartic, and helps us grow.  Continue reading “Overcoming Chaos”

Waves at Wallis

Today was a rough Monday. I felt tired, and stretched out, and couldn’t really settle. My mood was volatile, and I did only did the least expected of me. My daily life has been boring as of late. Right now, what is getting me through is the thoughts of tomorrow. The trips we are planningContinue reading “Waves at Wallis”

About a week ago I did a post on books, and it seemedContinue reading “Five Favorite Books”

Dreams of The Bold Coast

Tucked away from the tourist traps, Lubec Maine is the type of place that calls to wanderers. The town is tucked into the open edge of the Bay of Fundy. It has always seemed like a place where adventures should start. The town sits of the edge of the United States, looking over towards MaritimeContinue reading “Dreams of The Bold Coast”

A Light in The Darkness

Yesterday, Paris experienced incomprehensible violence all over the city. Once again we are we left with questions, pain and many people who lost their lives too soon. It is a terrible thing, watching as hate fueled attacks become increasingly common. The biggest question is, how do we move forward from this? On an individual level,Continue reading “A Light in The Darkness”

Thinking of Home

This is a shot I took last month of the Meeting House, In my Hometown of Greenfield New Hampshire. Its an incredible old building that has stood for many decades. It has been featured in calendars all over the country. In Iowa I found a calendar with a picture of the old meeting house. TheseContinue reading “Thinking of Home”

Waning Seasons of Change.

It was a dreary day here in New England. The Rainy was coming down, the temperatures have not reached out of the fifties. The air has a chill to it, and I am happy that I had the sense to grab a sweater on my way out this morning. Its was a cold wet afternoonContinue reading “Waning Seasons of Change.”
