Come Join Me On My Adventure
In June 2014, my husband decided I needed to leave my comfort zone and travel beyond the California border. He bought a new Ram 1500 truck, loaded it up with gear, told me to get in, and off we went on our first road trip.
This year we’ll be traveling through California, Nevada, Utah, and Arizona. Maybe we’ll clip Four Corners and do the touristy things of standing in four states at once. If I’m lucky, I’ll be able to taste some delicious and famous cuisine with New Mexico chilies. Our final destination is Boulder City, Nevada—where Micha and Caroline from Payoff Pitch grew up.
If you follow us on our trip, be prepared for some deep musings, pictures, videos, and a little silliness thrown in for fun.
As Ellie and Carl from Disney’s Up have taught us, adventure is out there.
Find a way to make others smile, and in return, find your happy place in this great big world while you can.

I’m actually typing this on my phone so please forgive any typos. After setting up our tent, hubby got a …
