July 8th


What lies behind us, and what lies before us are small matters to what lies within us.~~Ralph Waldo Emerson

The bags are packed,  car fueled, maps printed, mixed CDs burned,  snacks baked and July birthday cards posted. I’m heading off on a solo road trip for the next couple weeks. I plan to see family and friends, sleep under the stars, fly fish, take long hikes through the Rockies and Tetons, ride a horse or two, maybe kiss a cowboy or two and document each spirit-refreshing step with an adventurer’s wanderlust.

Be well, friends.

  5. Wow, how fun! I’ve always wanted to go on a solo roadtrip but sometimes you have the lifestyle where it isn’t exactly practical anymore, so cool that you are doing it now!!!!!!! Have fun, keep safe.

  7. Well, I KNOW “thy shall not covet thy neighbor’s really cool-sounding, heart-freeing, soul-replenishing, horse riding, fly fishing, road trip adventure”, but dang Sister, that just sounds like too much fun for a body to have! Waiting with bated breath to hear the stories and see the pictures. One day, you have to tell me your secret for making time in your business life to do such a thing! (eyebrow wiggle) I’m definitely interested–and I’m sure it has something to do with scrimping, creativity, bravery and some lean mean prioritization! LOL I’m so happy for you Kelli. Hope you have a blast–be safe and if you’re in the area, please pop on by! Hugs…

  8. The trip sounds wonderful. Have a marvelous adventure!
