A few weeks ago, I got a wild hair (which tends to happen when I’m “home” for any length of time), and decided to convince hubby that we should join a rally of families traveling through Arizona and Mexico for the holidays. The thing about my wild hairs is that while they are pretty crazy,…

Our bodies are remarkably smart, and tend to adapt quickly to routine. When I first started running I had one pace- and I trained at that pace during every. single. run. While I developed great physical endurance from all the time on my feet, my race times didn’t budge, because I wasn’t challenging my body…

As some of you may know, we are trying to figure out, as a family, how we can make travel a more regular part of our lives. While the naysayers suggested that this year’s epic Summer Trip (see parts One, Two, Three and Four on the blog), in which we spent two months traveling the…

  I don’t keep up with social media quite as much as I used to (trying to spend a little more time staying grounded in the present, these days), but I was really looking forward to BraAugust this year as a time to learn some new skills, and motivate myself to sew a few new…
