Married to the Chair PLUS ONE

Married to the Chair PLUS ONE Tagged with:

Today I dropped the cap to my water bottle under my desk and thought with dismay, how am I ever going to get that? In case you didn’t know I am pregnant. Which in and of itself is a story for another time. But amongst the many arduous tasks that come with pregnancy bending over is one of them. Especially having to bend over all the way to the floor! Do you know how far away that is? That’s Pluto in pregnancy language. Being pregnant is an amazing gift. Feeling a life move inside you is absolutely incredible until about midnight when you haven’t slept in a week, and your bed has turned into a torture chamber instead of the cloud of awesomeness it was just a few short months ago and all you want in this life is just to get a few hours of sleep!

Vitamin D and Adventure

Vitamin D and Adventure Tagged with:

My entire life I have always loved the summer season. As a child, summer meant many hours of playing outside, swim practices and meets, camping, riding bikes, family outings and countless hours of hanging out with friends. In fact, outdoor play was commonplace and enforced by my parents. Our family, friends and community made sure there were many planned events and activities to take part in! There was very little television or video gaming in our household. I was having too much fun, so I had no need to be stagnant. A true fact is that my mom would have to force all us kids out of the pool to eat lunch or dinner. We all were having a blast and would lose track of time!

Hence my sense of adventure, need for speed, and try anything attitude. I have a thirst for sun rays, sports, recreation and friends. I love being around water, whether it is a lake, ocean, beach , pool, or a waterfall! To me, water is peaceful, calming, beautiful, and provides entertainment and adventure! My reason and love for water has encouraged me to look at new activities with excitement and adrenaline. I don’t only enjoy the activity for the time I spend in serenity and with friends. I do believe that taking time for myself truly decreases the stresses in life! I did not even mention the sense of accomplishment when I learn a new activity or skill.

Now as an adult, I have my bucket list. In my post college years, I have added water, snow skiing, and sled skating to things I love. There is also tubing and kayaking. Handcycling is a joy as well. I still have more on my list. Rock climbing, zip lining, and white water rafting will be done as soon as possible. I challenge me and you to say, “What’s next?” and go for it! Be quick, because the warm weather is not here but once a year. Always know that every season has a bucket list of opportunities and adventures, so get out there!
