Wow. It’s been a beat hasn’t it? I, sadly, haven’t been listening to a lot of podcasts lately. My podcast time (my commute) has recently been taken up by phone calls (I know, I know, shame on me. Put your phone down when you’re driving!). So my mind may be a little fuzzy on some … More Atlas, Aurora, and Advancing Entomology
I remember when I first got Hybrid Theory. I don’t remember how old I was. I don’t even remember how I was listening to it. But man, I remember my mom’s comment. One Step Closer came over the speaker and I yelled along “Shut up when I’m talking to you. SHUT UP! SHUT UP! SHUT … More One More Light
This is a hard truth I’ve struggled with a lot this week, and it’s a bit of a weird one for me. I don’t like the spotlight. I don’t revel in attention or bask in glory. I’m content, nay prefer, the quiet sidelines if I have to show up at all. My voice is soft … More I Can’t Save the World
May was the month of Finish It and, alas, I did not finish it. I am proud to say that I got a decent number of projects done, all things considered, but there was definitely room for improvement. So this month’s challenge is an extension of last month’s. Finish It Part 2. I’m also going … More It’s All About the Improvement
My hubby – let’s just call him Holden – and I have a newfound utmost respect for old school farmers. Ever since we started gardening last season, we’ve begun to realize just how hard of a task it is. Mind you, we’re just trying to grow food to feed ourselves, not the world. And for … More Let’s Talk GMO and Gardening
Our second national park adventure from our recent trip to Colorado. I didn’t know what to except, apart from mountains of course. I thought the name to be a little unoriginal. After all, I typically think of mountains as rocky formations. My hubby – let’s just call him Shed – pointed out that the Rockies … More Rocky Mountain National Park
I’ve had an easy couple of months in the challenge front. While my annual BikingTheTrail challenge has kicked my butt, my monthly challenges have been nonexistent. For May, I’m turning it up to 11. May is my ‘Finish It’ month. All the projects that have been on my self-made honey do list all year? I … More Finish It!
Let’s be honest. I’m crap at doing these weekly check-ins on a weekly basis, so we’ll just aim for biweekly for a while and hope we’re still not disappointed. Though I will hold on to my disappointment in myself with a tight grasp this week, as my progress on the trail is abysmal. A reoccurring … More Biweekly Check In
I don’t know why I have the instinct to call these the ironflats, but the term keeps surfacing to the tip of my tongue. No matter what I inadvertently call them, they are awesome. A part of Boulder’s city parks & rec (insert your favorite Leslie Knope quote here), the Flatirons are a sight to … More Flatirons
It’s a well known mantra, one I try to live by. For Earth Day this year, it felt important. It pushed its way from the subconscious of my mind, elbowing out my to-do lists and my mental grocery lists to plop down center stage. It is a goal we should all work toward, and one … More Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.
