It’s a new year, a new day, and I have a new baby on the way!

Flashback Friday: Glacier National Park August 2022

Flashback Friday!

I’m getting my groove back and writing again. All the projects I’ve procrastinated on I’m finally getting done!

Here is my overview of hiking in Glacier NP.

Current River Mood

Well, we just survived a four…five… almost a whole week blizzard and now another week of horrible wind chills… thank you winter storms Diaz and Elliot. Followed by another round of snow. We needed the moisture but I’m so over four-foot drifts and slick roads. I was teleworking from home for some of it, butContinue reading “Current River Mood”

Time Flies When You’re (not) Having Fun

Open’s an eye and looks around– is summer over yet? Almost. Time officially got away from me. Most of that is due to taking on a temporary promotion at work and having more duties as assigned. It’s starting to slow done but the ride isn’t over yet. Other than job related training and a weekContinue reading “Time Flies When You’re (not) Having Fun”

Flashback Friday: Grand Teton & Yellowstone 2014 (quickest trip ever)

*7 Years by Lukas Graham playing in the background* It’s been seven years. Seven years since I branched out and headed west of my state of Missouri. Seven years of living the dream. Almost seven years of being with the love of my life. Looking back at how social media and the explosion of vanContinue reading “Flashback Friday: Grand Teton & Yellowstone 2014 (quickest trip ever)”

Flashback Friday: Agate Fossil Beds National National Monument, August 2015

I had never heard of this place. Scottsbluff— Chimney Rock, learned about them in 5th grade but it wasn’t until I headed to Nebraska in 2014 I heard about Agate. Even then I didn’t make it over there… But I planned time to go the next year. A co-worker and I both had a dayContinue reading “Flashback Friday: Agate Fossil Beds National National Monument, August 2015”

Baby Wipes & Day Hikes: Big Spring Trail

I got to go home over Thanksgiving. I had a week to show my son around my hometown, hunt, spend time with family, and hike. Hunter has been there back in February but that was a quick trip and we didn’t do a lot of exploring. I should have planned two weeks. However, we gotContinue reading “Baby Wipes & Day Hikes: Big Spring Trail”

Take a Hike

It’s National Take a Hike Day! And I had to work… and I’m taking a shift on the ambulance so I have to be ready to respond. So no hikes for me… Dammit. But if you have a chance, go take a hike! Well, because I didn’t plan this well we’re doing a #waybackwednesday post.Continue reading “Take a Hike”

Wannabe on the Trail: Influencing

I’ve been thinking a lot lately— inspired by a documentary. Imagine that. Anyways, I watched Fake Famous. It’s an interesting look at how we view influencing and a social experiment into how to become a mega influencer. I related the most with Chris but I don’t think I deserve to be famous in the sameContinue reading “Wannabe on the Trail: Influencing”

Return to Girl, Take a Hike

I really want to go hike on a beach somewhere. It’s been an insane week already. It’s also starting to get cold. I don’t like it. Well, I do but it’s a weird toxic love hate relationship with cold weather. The snow makes it so pretty. Luckily, we only had a little light dusting ofContinue reading “Return to Girl, Take a Hike”

Write—A—Ween

Hey folks! Fall is starting to wither a little bit here—we’re already getting calls for snow but right now it’s misty and dreary. Perfect Halloween weather—or perfect Halloween writing weather. So, I’m starting my own writing prompt for the two weeks leading up to Halloween. #writeaween
