Rim to Rim: The Good Kind of Crazy

I have a few slogans I live by. I also call these my “I AM STATEMENTS.” One of the most important things I tell myself everyday is “I AM THE GOOD KIND OF CRAZY!” I read my I AM STATEMENTS frequently (daily is my goal). I try to put wonderful affirmations in my mind each…

The End of My Journey with a Letter to Me

I had an idea pop into my head a few times today, so figure it’s worth exploring. I’m nearing the end of this journey and feel my last post should be a letter to myself. I left Phoenix, AZ on July 20th and am slated to arrive back this Saturday, September 7th. Many people write…

Road Trip – Reflecting after Six Weeks

Murphy and I are currently in Nashville, TN. Yeah- I’m here again, the only spot I’m staying twice on this seven week journey. I couldn’t help but stop for a night to see Vince Gill and Martina McBride perform at the Grand Ole Opery! I cannot believe how fast the trip has gone, while at…

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…
