31 was an amazing year, a wild ride. I could give you a highlight reel of adventures but not all the good + hard things that pushed my shell further open happened in the mountains or the ocean or on a river.

More than anything I began to learn that life is a journey, but more than that — *I* am a journey. I’m a wild ride myself, a process in process.
Jack Kornfield says “Everything changes, right? Birth and death and gain and loss and pleasure and pain — it’s dualistic to be incarnated in the human body. Night and day. It’s woven out of the opposites and it’s constantly changing. Maybe you know you’re not separate from the rest of the world, that every breath you take has molecules that drifted across Mauna Loa in their way across the Pacific Ocean, some that came from the Amazon, from chemical weapons in Syria, the nuclear meltdown in Fukushima, the first breaths of newborns born around the world — we are a river that’s always changing. What seems in our ordinary consciousness fixed and solid shows itself in reality to be a flow. And when we get quiet enough we start to realize we are not solid, we are a process — it’s true!
So, we stop to pay attention and can’t find a single thing that’s not changing. And it’s all interconnected.”
.
This year I celebrated the beginnings of dear friends’ marriages, and felt ragged, cruel death before its time. I experienced my last living grandparent no longer able to match my name with my face, and the young daughter of a close friend learn to say my name when she sees me. I saw two friends diagnosed with cancer, and two more people I love finally reach a breathing point in their battles with cancer. I have learned to love myself more, while also giving myself more selflessly to the compromise, humility, courage, and kindness required for a thriving marriage.

At times I questioned what really mattered in life, and then I felt the answer, that it all matters. If we care, if it makes us feel delight or tenderness or laughter or connection or vitality or just simply alive, it matters. And it’s always changing. We’re always changing. So, 31 was a year of great change. 32 will be too. I know I’m lucky to be here.

Lighten up... ✨💫
.
Stop taking life so seriously right now. Yes, there's a time for introspection, compassion and in depth analysis. But don't let this steal your playful spirit and enthusiasm for life. Details matter, but as Rumi questions, "If you are irritated by every rub... How will you ever be polished?"
.
Here are a few cues to lighten up and enjoy the playful spirit of life...
.
1. Remember: your time is precious. What you do matters, how you do it matters even more... But don't become a perfectionist in an imperfect world! Relax and let go. Fretting about every detail all the time can suck the zest from life. 💡
.
2. Admit it's time to accept a new reality: to be more carefree and free-spirited, you must commit yourself to adopting that everyone perceives the world in different. Dance to the beat of your own drum, instead of imitating the melody of someone else's instrument. Follow the music that YOU hear. 💡
.
3. Life is full of events beyond your control. Remember, that you need to LET GO of everything that you cannot control. You can't always control life's haphazard events, but you can control your response. 💡

There’s no smoke without a fire, but there is a fire without smoke!.

In our glamping lifestyle, we just love using our propane fire pit! It’s small & portable, can easily turn it on (and off), it doesn’t have smoke so it also doesn’t stink and it produces a surprising amount of heat.

There’s just something special about sitting around the fire that brings people together.

Do you have a propane fire pit?

Surround yourself with people who push you,
Who challenge you,
Who makes you laugh,
Who makes you better,
Who makes you happy!.

When we left our home to travel Fulltime I also left good friends behind. I was worried about not having my friends around, but I also didn’t know how many new friends I will be making along our way!

I’m so lucky to be surrounded by this amazing group of brave, strong and inspiring nomad women. I love you ladies and happy to squeeze into a van with you anytime ❤️ @blessedwithoutboundaries

It’s impossible to get a normal posed picture of these 2 busy boys. My go-to trick is to play Simon says. “Simon says stand still, Simon says look at dad, Simon says smile”... I think Evan is catching on to the trick, what do you think?⠀

When you find familiarity in the oddities of the world, and you accept it as your own.
You will find liberation,
Freedom
To set yourself apart,
From mediocracy.

Today we celebrate those who still wear the uniform, those who will wear it into eternity and those who no longer wear it but continue to serve and honor our country. Thanks for making America a place where we can freely seek adventures.

Privacy! Even though we live in a tiny space, we wanted to make sure our kids have a space of their own..

They have a bunk bed in the hallway and we have a sliding door between our room and their area but we still felt they could use more privacy. So we installed new...Curtains!.

It’s just a small change but it makes a huge difference and they love hanging out in their private space now!

How much privacy do you get in your home?

Hanoi is a city that is full of energy and amazing street food. This is me with Doris, a wonderful guide who took me around to her favorite places to eat a whole bunch of different dishes that I can neither spell nor pronounce but could eat every day for the rest of my life because they are so delicious. .

Thomas Vicente, our knowledgeable and enthusiastic Monte Albán guide leads our group on an informative tour of the the ancient capital of the Zapotecs.

Did you know this city was one of the first cities in Mesoamerica? During it's time, it was one of the most populated. It was founded approximately 500 years BC and flourished until 750 AD.

AMAZING!

If you have not been, make sure you take the time to see this amazing wonder of the world. :) #montealbán #oaxacaexperiencetours #experienceitforyourself #ancient #zapotec #seekadventures #exploreoaxaca #travelmexico #traveloaxaca #archeology #mesoamerica

A shout out to all the chosen families out there. I’d be less me without the three of you.

Cold air, dark night, warm fire, bright stars and good friends. That’s my secret formula for a great evening..

We just had that for 2 weeks straight every single night where all us nomad parents will get together outside our RV and just relax and enjoy each other’s company for hours..

We can’t be more grateful for our road buddies and for @Fulltime_familes for bringing us all together.

And wanna know the secret ingredient that makes it even more fun?.

This was definitely my favourite waterfall in Iceland. It might even be my favourite waterfall out of all of the ones I've seen in my life. It's not just because the waterfall itself is a crazy bright blue colour from the glaciers, or that it plummets from a cliff of black lava columns, which are so bizarre even on their own. It's because the landscape all around it was like something from a different planet, the drive/trek to get there was quite an adventure, and we had it entirely to ourselves. Everything about it was just so unique and surprising! .
.
.
If you're ever in Iceland and have a few minutes to drive down a random road that feels like it's heading into the middle of absolute nowhere, I highly recommend doing so! 😂 The road is just off the main highway, and it's actually just behind one of the other main waterfall attractions, Godafoss Waterfall. Just note that there are potholes, a gate you have to go through, and if you really want to get close, there's a bit of a climb down. But it's all so, so worth it.

The lake at Lake Poinsett is dry. They drained in 2017/2018 in order to do some work to prevent erosion, replace drainage structures, reestablish native plants and restore aquatic habitats. It’s not set to be refilled until the spring of 2021. It’s really surreal to look out and see a dry lakebed. I wrote an article about it in May of 2018 if you want to visit OnlyinArk.com to check it out.

Running down a volcano (Haleakala) at full speed with a fabric wing attached to my back was the most freeing experience. I’m now a paragliding BIG FAN and will definitely seek out the adventure again!

Kids market place! Every @fulltime_families rally has an activity planned for the kiddos to make stuff and sell it in a marketplace. It’s probably all the kids favorite day of the week! My kids decided to make a fruit shakes stand!...

They researched the market to decide on a price, bought the ingredients, planned their stand location, made signs, set up the table, serviced customers, calculated change and of course, made fruit shakes. They had a blast and did an amazing job and even made money! Other kids made a ton of super cool things like jewelry, desserts, art etc. and it was really cool to shop for hand-made things that were made by kids in our nomads community...

All these kiddos are little entrepreneurs in the making ❤️

The view of the Arkansas River from Rocky Point Trail at @pinnaclemountain is absolutely breathtaking. This trail was perfect to walk with our *almost* 3 year old! (I can’t believe his birthday is almost here!) What a wonderful way to enjoy Arkansas!

I wrote this for a client last night and I am FEELING IT, folks: “Why are we drawn to the places where mountains meet the sky, and rivers wind through fields that seem to go on forever? A landscape as thrilling and dynamic as the Rocky Mountain West reminds us that some things don’t need to be improved upon... As individuals, we find freedom and purpose in exploring western landscapes, each step into nature clarifying our role as part of the whole.” Creative outlet for desk job dreaming much? 😂

Oof. It’s been a week. Up and down, tears and triumphs, self-doubt and stretched thin, overwhelmed and manic, meetings cancelled, phone slipped into in the toilet (followed by serious sanitation)... but this afternoon got an infusion of gold. A little conversation and stoke-sesh for dreaming about a summer 2020 adventure did me a world of good. (And no it’s not too early for that.) Holding onto (with possibly a death grip) those golden vibes so here’s a magic moment from September in a crown jewel of a backcountry spot. dirty stinky and happy AF.

Remember there are seasons for everything. Play hard, then work hard, and the season of play + plenty will come around again eventually.
KEEP. DREAMING. And then — go do it.

We are happy to hear from @marc_thebeau that Banff National Park have had some of the best snow conditions he have seen this early in years with around 50-70 cm of snow cover❄️🏔 Location is Bow Summit on the 93 North road towards Jasper from Lake Louise. Marc says there is a few sharks out there, but far in between them, and that the snow have packed nicely in the drainage ⛷❄️🏔 #skitouring #skiing #48freeriders #skiinstructor #skiinstructorlife #skibum #snowboardinstructor #canada #lakelouise #banffnationalpark #treeskiing #mountains #nationalpark #explore #seekadventures #community #earlyseason #winter #winterishere #winterwonderland #explorethemountains #seekdiscomfort

One time, at band camp... 😂.

We are at Medina Lake, TX with 72 other Fulltime RV families, and a group of kids decided to start a band together! They met every day for hours to plan and practice and it was completely self directed without any adult supervision or guidance..

This amazing group of kids practiced team work, creativity, problem solving, conflict resolution, and so much more, it was inspiring to see what they are capable of doing all by themselves! None of them were really good at playing but they all worked together and helped each other to improve as individuals and as a group.

We love that this lifestyle allows them to do all of that as those are the skills that will most likely help them in the future.
