10 things I’m afraid of

Have you heard that podcast where in each episode a person details the top 10 things they are afraid of? It’s funny, enlightening, and full “ME TOO!!!” moments.  I wanted to join in the fun, so here’s my version of “the 10 things I’m most afraid of”. I’m writing these down in no particular order […] more



Week 2 – Live well, be a bad ass, find a rhythm

Last week I dumped the grey and black water tanks on the motor home BY MYSELF before heading home last Friday. Like a bad ass. Perhaps you are surprised to hear that this was even worth mentioning.  Let me ask you, would YOU make any effort to actually learn how to do this if by […] more
