Hello Gorgeous

Escaping to Flagstaff is our thing. Whenever we have a free day or nothing planned it is not uncommon to pack the kids in the car super early. I mean, super early. Like 3:30 AM – 4:00 AM. We like to get up there with no traffic and let the kids still sleep. I feelContinue reading “Hello Gorgeous”

Exploring The Wave Cave | Mesa, Arizona

Lately I have been struggling with motivation to workout in a traditional gym setting. I find myself actually losing any drive to really do anything physical once inside the gym walls. I never used to be like that… Has anyone else ever experienced this or am I some weirdo that has an excuse to notContinue reading “Exploring The Wave Cave | Mesa, Arizona”

Valley of Fire State Park, Overton, Nevada

I have been reflecting a lot recently on life and how time should be spent. I struggle constantly with the notation that humans…specifically me shouldn’t be forced to sit at a desk all day under fake lightening to earn a living.
