Solving clues with hieroglyphics was our favorite puzzle room at 5 Wits in Buffalo. Our weather is very cold during the winter months, so we really enjoy finding fun activities for the family that help us get through the darkest months of the year! #5wits #puzzlerooms #i❤️ny #wny #microadventures #travelisagift #experiencesoverthings #exploremore #buffalove #buffalo #familybonding

Sometimes it's better to take a break from all the exploring, sit down with a glass of wine, and simply enjoy the moment.

So it’s been pretty busy the last couple of days. We attended 2 playgroups, 1 play date, a library visit, a trip to the night market, an exciting night swim, a new park where we made some new friends, and 2 malls visits. Phewww.. but the week isn’t over yet and more adventure is coming starting tomorrow! Stay tune! 😊

I forgot! We installed a new step! 👟 (as displayed by Nathan’s wonderful work clothes) It wasn’t as bad as I expected but we have to give a huge thanks to my dad who basically installed the whole thing. He’s a beast. Our old one was rotted, shaky, and felt like it was going to fall off any second. We still are covered with snow over here so our renovations are kind of at a halt. We need some warmer weather STAT so we can get back to knocking projects out! Sitting around not doing anything is just about to kill me! 🤦🏽‍♀️

When I decided to not only fly in planes ✈️ , but it may be a good idea to jump out of one too.

For us, one of the challenges of traveling has been staying open to new experiences and the possibility of growing to love a new place when you’ve gotten comfortable and attached to the one you’ve just left.
🧡
We fell for Bangkok. Hard. We’re one day into our 2 week stay in Phuket and we’re trying to acclimate to how different it is (we didn’t expect that!) - We’re excited to rest up and see what beauty and wonder the south of Thailand has to share with us.🙏🏻

#ThrowbackThursday I miss the quiet streets, the creative thoughts, the audio books, the writing, the unlimited coffee, the list goes on!.
.
Reminiscing about Europe just a couple weeks ago. I’ve slowly been trying to build these routines and mornings into my life so I can continue to be the best I can be for my clients, relationships and my business. It wasn’t until this last trip that I realized the true power of NOT thinking. Having nothing planned, no self inflicted obligations, no stress, just the freedom of thought. I have never written so creatively then I did on this trip. I have never come up with sooo many ideas then I did on this trip.
.
I share this because most of us are in a place of move move move and sometimes the answer lies in relaxing.
.
So I challenge you to relax. Just completely relax and do what it is you want to do for an entire today and give your brain a rest!.

Deprograming in process. Thank you @christin.henke for this beautiful awareness.
.
Repost from @christin.henke - We’ve all been trained to WANT, not HAVE.
I spent years wanting the life I am currently living, but even now it would be so easy to look into the future and focus my longing on the things I still hope to achieve.
♥️
That’s why my primary focus this year is on savoring every minute of every day as it happens. I don’t want to look back on that one time my husband and I decided to drop everything and explore the world together as something I rushed through or unknowingly wished away.
♥️
Is there anything you’re currently wanting instead of having?
♥️

Al🌺ha Beaches! Especially this one. Part of my heart will always be here, Lanikai Beach💙 Between those two islands I spread some of my dad's ashes a few years back. Growing up he took me and my mom here many times and we kayaked out to "the mokes" as they're called. It was always magic, always fun, and I will always think of him here with a paddle in his hand, the sun shining down on his body, and a genuine smile on his face. I'm so grateful for the memories and for being able to continue to share this spot with the ones I love.

This horse wanted to snuggle me after our sleigh ride at @ymcarockies in Colorado and I was not even a little bit sad about it! I ❤️ horses! 🐴

Magical moments, y'all✨ A few hours ago this family was packing for Disney World when tomorrow's flight got canceled. Now, they're cool as a cucumber because we were able to book new dates AND add an extra park day for the same cost! Grateful to be a travel agent duo to fix this so quickly, and grateful for stellar clients to work alongside like @bridgettemccoy. And thanks Brandi @southwestair for being super helpful in the unexpected change of events ♥️✈️🔜🏰

❤️ our explorer twins. Now to tell them Southwest cancelled our flight tomorrow to Disney...
(Thanks to @hollyandbo_beourguesttravel for keeping me calm during our changes!)

Funny how we find ourselves completing circles in unexpected little ways.
.
Galveston, TX was where Blake and I met almost 11 years ago. (😳) We were here together for 2 weeks training for our first ever real adult jobs with NOAA to work as observers on commercial fishing vessels (which was a crazy freakin job, but I guess you gotta be a little crazy to do it🤪).
.
Life circumstances and a lot of 😍🤩😍🤩 led us to move in together to an apartment in Florida like 6 or 7 weeks later. 😂
.
We weren’t really planning to come back to Galveston on this trip exactly, but it worked out with dates and closures at other parks. I guess it was just calling to us?!
.
So here we are again, on the same island, walking the same beach 10.75 years later, with the same lust for life and two perfect children in tow. .
I guess there’s a little Rootz here, too.💫

So what’s an experience? It can be as elaborate as a vacation to as simple as playing in the snow.
.
Placing the priority on experiences and less on “things” is (one of) my goals this year. After all, I believe experiences leave the memories our kids want to and will remember. .
What kind of experiences are your favorite with your family??

What's your next adventure? It doesn't have to a big challenge. It could simply be a walk in the park, spending some time in your garden... My next micro adventure is embarking on a 30 miles journey from Eastbourne to Rye.
Being in the outdoors and connecting with my friends are free forms of therapy for me.
@make_shit_happen_today thanks for a fun weekend!

Best way to see South Beach. And it only cost me 10 bones.

Michelle Obama once said...."It's like, remember who you always were, where you came from, who your parents were, how they raised you. Because that authentic self is going to follow you all through life, so make sure that it's solid so it's something that you can hold on and be proud of for the rest of your life." I am beyond blessed to have these two as my parents. Whilst not always understanding the "no" or the rules and boundaries I had whilst growing up I sure as hell appreciate them now. I am definitely the person I am today due to the foundation in life I was given by these two.

They worked hard to give us every opportunity we had growing up and we certainly had more than a few. They taught us that experiences and people and quality time were worth so much more than anything materialistic.
I hold true some very strong core values and beliefs that I hope will also be shared by my own children when they eventually realise that the No and rules and boundaries I give them is actually helping to shape them into respectful, kind, hard working and appreciative members of society.
So thanks Mum and Dad for helping me be the authentic person I am.... I will always be proud to say there is no fakery or bullshit in my life.... I like to keep it real xx

"Don't compare your behind the scenes to others' highlight reel"

Speaking of highlight reel, how gorgeous was this view?! Best of all, it was in Australia of all places. I wonder if the above quote rings as true when it's my current couch-sitting-behind-the-scenes making me jealous of my own adventure highlights? 🤔

This ski trip I went on with @travelsofsophie via @JUCYworld at @HothamAlpineResort was such an epic weekend, really hoping to squeeze in another ski trip soon!

Although my shattered #galaxys7 that took a tumble down the mountain with me may not have the same sentiment...Hence the lack of photos I have from the actual skiing parts of the trip 😂
