Mother Daughter Surfing Adventure

I finally made it happen! Surfing will no longer be a missing check mark on my adventure list. Not another year will pass by that I tell my daughter “next year we will learn how to surf” and not do it. This has been a childhood desire of mine and two months ago I finallyContinue reading “Mother Daughter Surfing Adventure”

Have Baby, Still Travel

It was our first flight with our one and a half month old daughter Akela. I felt full of doubt and uncertainty. Extra set of clothes for Akela? Check.

Getting Out as a Single Adventure Mama

In 2017, I became a single parent. I can’t say it happened suddenly – I had felt like a single parent long before my husband left. Somehow, when I began divorce proceedings, the reality of my task sunk in: raising a child, single-handedly, while maintaining some semblance of sanity. Needless to say, I grew aContinue reading “Getting Out as a Single Adventure Mama”

Badass Girls Need a Badass Mom

I’ve been there. I’ve been there five times actually. I’ve been there- drowning in diapers, burp cloths, sleepless nights, and sore nipples, just praying I’ll have the strength to get through the day. I’ve been there. I’ve flipped through magazines and social media posts, jealous of the twentysomethings camped alone in the middle of theContinue reading “Badass Girls Need a Badass Mom”

Nature is My Anchor

Two days before our first child turned one month old, my husband and I watched as all of our belongings were boxed and packed into crates. We said goodbye to our things, and began three months of extended hotel stays and visits with family. We crossed the entire continental United States before flying to Hawaii,Continue reading “Nature is My Anchor”
