10 Year Anniversary Part 1
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!
Slow Vlog Unpacking + Tidying Up -Calm
Spend a calm day with me as I unpack, unbox a vegan chocolate box and just relax.
Have a great weekend my friends!
Traveling in 3, 2, 1
I hope your doing well and enjoying autumn?
I'm traveling today. (Oh how good it feels to be able to write that again!) The weather turned off colder so I went south (again) this time to a new spot...
If you missed it, I took a nice 10 day trip last month and uploaded several videos of our stay here and here plus lots of short! So if you don't follow my Youtube channel head over here. We stayed in a lovely holiday cottage and had a very nice time. I'm also working on uploading all the food /recipes from that stay --so stay tuned for those.
I promise to write more once we are settled in.
Have a great weekend!
Take a Mini Roadtrip With Me
Searching for Balance - New Vlog
I hope you are well and spending some time doing what you love.
My latest vlog from my November trip just went live. It was a working holiday and I really strived for a work/life balance during that trip.
So mostly its a pretty chill adventure - I did bake a bit and managed to have some fun, lol
Do you struggle with finding balance between so much work and having time to actually just have fun? Let me know how you handle it.
Quick Vacation Find
Happy Wednesday ~
I hope you are well and staying out of the Thanksgiving madness. I'm still traveling/working and I just wanted to share something really quick with you. I'm staying at a holiday house and some of the furnishings impressed me enough to look them up! I was even more impressed when I found out they were affordable! That never happened, especially now.
One of my best finds is about to be my "go to" holiday hostess/unexpected drop-in gifts of this super luxuriously and soft blanket. The picture look meh, but it is really soft and I was glad to see it washed/dried and still looks brand new. It will make a thoughtful and useful gift rather than another knick knack that no one actually wants. It's a great Amazon find right now and I'm buying as gifts especially - at this price.
I will be sharing some of the other cool stuff here in later posts and of course in videos. You do follow me on Youtube, right? If not, run over there now--I'm uploading all kinds of recipes, travel, nature and relaxing videos. Watch them here.
Also run, don't walk over and grab that blanket now before all the pretty ones sell out.

Camping in the Lazy Days of Autumn
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!
Another perfect day spent in nature ~
Camping in 3, 2, 1
I'm off for a camping trip...so not much on social media this week.
BUT there will be plenty of new stuff soon!
Have a great week and I will see you in the woods!
