National Pet Month – Allen – Best Friends Animal Society

May is National Pet Month so I wanted to sneak this post in before we turn the page on our calendars. 🙂 Every year while volunteering at Best Friends Animal Society, we (of course!) discuss getting another dog or cat. We rescued our girl, Utah, when she was a puppy and this time we wanted to ...

Baker Campground – Twin Cities – Minnesota

It’s a rainy day so I’m dreaming of camping, looking at photos from past trips and planning new ones. I love going through old pictures and reminiscing. One of the best things about living in the Twin Cities is the convenience of not having to travel too far to “get-away”. We really enjoyed camping at Baker ...

Mississippi – National River and Recreation Area – Twin Cities

Did you know that we have a National Park running right through the Twin Cities in Minnesota? The Mississippi National River and Recreation Area offers 72 miles of boating, running/walking/hiking/biking trails, fishing, birdwatching, nature and city photography and much more. We are fortunate to live in an urban area with so much nature to enjoy. “Unlike most ...

Cottonwood Canyon Road – Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument

Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument was the last place in the continental United States to be mapped. It still feels wild and untouched. On our recent road trip to Utah, we took Cottonwood Canyon Road from Big Water to Cannonville and then up to Bryce Canyon National Park. Cottonwood Canyon Road is 46 miles of unpaved ...

lessons

I bought this awesome box of 365 quotes at Hummingbird House in Sedona designed by Sugarboo & Co. I’m so excited to read one every day! We are here to learn lessons, and the world is our teacher. When we fail to learn a lesson, we get to take it again and again. Once we ...

running vibes

I’m sitting in my hotel in Sedona, AZ and right outside my window, they are setting up for the Sedona Half Marathon, 10k & 5k. It’s only 6:30 AM and I can already feel the excitement and energy. I find myself with a lump in my throat. There is something about running a race that ...

the fog

There’s something about February that makes me feel lighter, like a heavy fog lifting. January is a hard month for me. Anyone else? I feel pressure to start the new year with a bang, to set new goals, work harder, do better. All while reflecting on the previous year. The good and the bad, what ...

Sedona, Arizona

  Sedona, Arizona was on my bucket list and we finally made it happen! To say I fell in love is an understatement. The moment we got home, we booked our return trip for January 2019. ❤️ We arrived in the evening and we were welcomed by one of the famous Sedona sunsets. We stayed ...
