Turning 36

We’re in Nashville, TN for my 36th birthday. I’ve never been to Nashville, love the country music of course! As always on my birthday, reflecting occurs as I turn a year older. I’m not sure I’ve had another year full of more soul searching, purpose defining, and answer seeking than I have over the past…

Bits ‘n Pieces

Starbursts got it right with the FaveRed packaging, I’m just saying. If Sour Patch Kids would figure out that the best colors/flavors were red and blue and package just those, I’d buy a lot more! I try not to indulge in candy often, but when I do, I prefer Sour Patch Kids or Skittles (I’m…

A Whole Lot of Grey

Murph and I are settled into Indiana. If you’re visiting my site for the first time, just know that 100 days ago I started hitting my knees each day and surrendering my life to God. You can view the prayer from the home page. The beginning of writing this blog is one major result of…

I’m Successful! Right?

I had a lot of drive time today. Murph and I went from Bozeman, MT to Spearfish, SD in a day. This was one of my longest driving days so far. We’ve officially been in 9 states over the 13 days of our road trip. Arizona, California, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Montana, Wyoming and now South…

Day 4, Let it Come, Lake Tahoe Day 2!

Murph and I spent our 2nd full day at Lake Tahoe yesterday. Three words came to mind throughout the day: Expectations, Children and Fear…. First, I booked Zip Lining at 12 o’clock. When leaving my hotel room and hopping on a Lime scooter, I looked to the West and quickly realized a storm was brewing….

Day 3, LTE, Yet No Service. Lake Tahoe!

My first full day experiencing one of the spots I sought out for this trip- South Lake Tahoe! I couldn’t believe it when I woke up this morning after 8 o’clock! I cannot tell you the last time I slept in that late, and on a Monday at that. Blacked out curtains work like a…

Day 2 And Two Halves

Murphy and I made it to South Lake Tahoe! We had quite the drive from Southern California. We stopped plenty along the way, for food, bathroom breaks and picture taking. I’ve included some pics of our journey below! Needless to say, it was a long day in the car, stemming roughly 8 hours. The first…

GET OUT OF THE RING

I had an incident recently with someone who I “should” be close with. This isn’t the first time we’ve had unnecessary friction, quite frankly it seems to be more the norm the past few years. I won’t get into too much detail because frankly it’s not necessary to relay the point. Let’s just say it…
