"Here’s to the girls who would rather stay wild and wander than settle down. The one’s who have said, “I like you, but I love to travel so as much as I’d like to stay I have to go.” The girls who don’t want a “normal” life and actually refuse to live it.
Here’s to the girls who get weird looks when they’re eating alone, the girls who actually enjoy their own company and don’t need someone with them to feel accepted. The girls who are fearless in buying a plane ticket to a foreign country alone.
Here’s to the girls who can stand up for themselves, the girls who have no problem saying “yes, I’m traveling alone” to the skeptical immigration officer at the airport. The girls who know what they want and are actually going after it.
I’d rather live for the spontaneous moments that you could never predict than have a life that’s planned out and set in stone, a routine that doesn’t fulfill me and relationships that bore me.
I don’t want any of that. I want to live wild and free, completely on my own without any restrictions.
Here’s to the girls who feel the same way, the one’s who want to put their dreams first and live out their happiness. The girls who aren’t concerned with settling down and finding someone to put a ring on their finger. The girls who are happiest when they’re alone because they’ve fallen in love with their lives."

✨✨Advice Needed!✨✨ I am so super excited that in just over 3 weeks I will be traveling to Charleston, SC to train with top coaches so that I will have the tools to take this business EVEN FURTHER!
I had reservations about this trip. Coen will be 15 months old at the time I travel and I've never imagined I would leave him for any amount of time this young.
But I need this! All expenses paid, beach house, time with like-minded women, and the opportunity to advance my business to the next level! I also want to show my children that I am my own person with dreams and goals and that I work hard everyday to provide for them, and eventually, have more time home with them.
I know he will be well cared for and loved, but naturally, as his mother, I want to be the one to cuddle him, wipe his tears, and all that mommy stuff.
We are still nursing at night and I am trying to wean, but I'm lazy, and it's easier to just give in.
Does anyone have any advice for me or Corey to help make this weekend trip a little easier for everyone?
I would appreciate any suggestions!!
"What pick yourself up means is that it's never been easier to decide to be responsible for your own work, for your own agenda, for the change you make in the world. To have the chance to matter. Not to be finished right now, but starting now. Pick yourself means we should stop waiting and whining and stalling. The outcome is still in doubt, but it's clear that waiting just doesn't pay." - Seth Godin
Let us also take responsibility for our environmental impact and decide today to make small positive changes to reduce that impact. ~
STORY: I took this photo when my 9 year old dog was too sore from an 11 mile hike with over 4K feet of elevation gain the previous day to hike again. I stayed with him at the car while my friend and her puppy hiked so I decided to play. Walking into the woods right next to the car I stepped past dog poop, a biodegradable dog poop bag, and a beer can. Carry out your trash people, but lets talk about biodegradable dog poop bags.
ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT: Biodegradable dog poop bags sound like a great alternative to plastic, however, they aren't quite what they seem. Some bags labeled biodegradable don't meet the highest standards to compost in a relatively short amount of time. Many need specific circumstances to compost at all, landfills have tight compression and the lack of oxygen stops even high quality bags from degrading. When hiking the most environmentally friendly and convenient way to deal with it is actually to bury it; then you don't need to carry it! At home if you don't have some where away from the house to bury it, having a separate compost for waste, flushing it if you check your local sewage guidelines (and don't have septic), or transporting it to an industrial composting facility that accepts pet waste is best. They're still a better option than plastic but work best when disposed of properly!
