Look what happened now...
Ready, Set, Jet!
I'm not sure how it's even possible, but this blog is 10 years old today. WTF?? How is that even possible?? It seems like only last year I took the plunge and leaped out there and bought this domain.
Looking back, I've blogged about my adventures traveling in the USA, Europe, Iceland, Canada, Mexico and South America. I've written about trips planned, delayed and failed, as well as amazing adventures that were life changing. I've shared my cruises to the Caribbean, Europe and the Transatlantic journeys. I documented my switch from Vegetarian to Vegan, shared recipes, created book reviews and wrote about my day to day life. I've moved from Texas to the south of France, London, the Lake District and back to the USA and you have been with me.
This blog has opened so many doors for me. I have written several best selling books that wouldn't have happened if I wasn't pushing myself to write here. It's also helped me to try new things, and be open to new experiences. I've gotten serious about Youtube and started sharing way more of everyday life. My world has grown as I've meet new people from all walks of life and become much more of a global citizen.
Thank you so much for reading my posts, sharing your own stories and connecting with me. Your feedback, suggestions and insights have helped me so much. Your friendships mean the world to me and I treasure you.
In the next part of this 10 year celebration I'm going to share some stats with you and take a trip down memory lane. (Reading the old posts used to make me cringe now I am just nostalgic!)
I can't wait to see what the next 10 years bring!
Hey How Are You?
It's still warm for December here. Perfect weather to spend the day with me as I run errands and spend some time visiting a new park.
This was a pretty chill day. I did a few errands and then relaxed in a pretty park by the river.
Have a great weekend!
Hey and Happy Sunday!
I've been talking about my adventures in the State Park...
BUT this one takes place in a Cemetery...watch it here:

I hope you are enjoying the changing seasons? We are spending as much time outside as possible, fitting in activities before the weather turns off cold and wet. Plus, after the terrible summer heat it feels fantastic to be outside without melting!
Last month I explored a Texas state park (watch Video here) and in late October I was excited to go back again and camp. For this trip we rented a rustic cabin inside the park. It included beds, mini fridge. microwave and water on a tap outside. It was a short walk to the bathrooms and because we went on a Wednesday we had the park almost to ourselves.
Watch the video here:
I think this was just what I needed. I've been feeling so overwhelmed with work and other projects that a nature break really reset my energy and creativity. But I returned home so inspired! I often forget how relaxing it is to be away from all our devices!
We saw so many birds, deer and other wildlife and the weather was perfect!
Unfortunately, we didn't do as much as planned, but it was so great to be in nature and get away from everything. I can't wait to go back!
See you at the airport!
It's September and everything is changing. We packed up the car and said goodbye to the cottage on the Bay. It was a wonderful 5 weeks of resting, reading and lazing about, but now back to reality. #eek
While it was mostly sunny every day for this leg of the trip, the weather began shifting because of the hurricane(s) and storms in the gulf. We drove back to central Texas with heavy rain and flooding predicted. No rain pictures because it wasn't safe.
After a few more days in the hotel we started the next adventure. I will share more of it as the month goes on... but I want to thank each and everyone of you for stopping by and reading my silly little blog. I appreciate your kind words, private messages and friendship. I know this will be an AMAZING month!
It's been a glorious week on the coast! Thank you all for the lovely birthday wishes and kind words. I appreciate each and everyone of you!
This was a low-key week of chilling by the beach, watching pelicans laze around and catching up on my reading. I really needed this break and couldn't have asked for a better birthday. We had coffee on the bay every morning, visited the farmer's market, cooked inspired dishes and generally slowed down. This was the perfect place to escape the heat and reset.
We did a few day trips to explore the surrounding small towns, but I really didn't film anything as I was content to just be in the moment and relax. It was nice to tour around and not worry about deadlines or work. I love to visit new cities and explore, but right now slow vacations are the best!
New videos soon and of course more book reviews are on the way.
