Let the fun begin


I’m still working on learning how to relax. Maybe I will add meditation to my to do list. I really want to know how, but it is kind of a chore for me.

I managed to finally get my new office/creative space set up this week. In addition, I booked two trips for some work. One in Los Angeles next week and then a trip to Chicago in February. I am eager to find some new adventures this year while traveling!

I have been looking at keeping my every day life from being mundane. There is truly adventure around every corner. I am studying French and I made an appointment with a personal trainer. I look forward to getting back into shape this year, and have determined that I need a little extra help in motivation and accountability.

I was super happy that the temperatures were in the 50’s and 60’s this week. I talked my son into going on a hike. It was met reluctantly at first because it would pull him away from his video games. IIMG_8415 am guilty of letting him have a little much screen time while its been cold outside. I gave him an old camera and told him I wanted him to be a photographer. He got excited and we set out. We ran part of the trail and I realized just how out of shape I am and how fast he is. We stopped and played at the waterfall. It made my heart so happy to just sit still in the warm sun and watch him play. He truly is my heart.

We hiked and explored for a few hours. At the end, he asked, “Can we do this everyday?!” I succeeded! Now to find more adventure with my little sidekick….


About strokeofred

I am from Kansas and I have traveled all over the world. I am an artist, and I have a business brain. I love skirts and tennis shoes. I like to get dirty and ride motorcycles. I am sensitive and I can be mean. I love nature, and believe in protecting it. I love to laugh, and feel better after a good cry. I can be stubborn and impatient. I am constantly growing. I am open and free. I look to be inspired and love to inspire. I play guitar and secretly want to play drums. I have a puppy that brings me great joy. I love hugs, cuddling, holding hands...and wrestling. I love the mountains and the beach. I have to make a pilgrimage to the ocean at least twice a year to balance myself. I believe in balance in all things. Traveling is a passion, and meeting interesting people from all over the world is the perk! I have small town values, and big city dreams. I love beer, hate wine. I believe that what you put out comes back. I believe and live by the belief of treating others like you want to be treated. I enjoy stimulating conversation, and a good sense of humor. Caffeine is my drug of choice, and coffee over chess or good conversation is my luxury. I am strong but sometimes feel small. I strive to be my authentic me.
