New direction

So I've been struggling lately with what I wanted this blog to be. At first I thought I would chronicle some of my little adventures here and there and my life in general. Don't get me wrong I still want to but I found that I was getting frustrated with myself and where my life is at. I feel that my life is a bit lackluster and on hold. I know that may sound harsh and I shouldn't say that about myself but it's true, it's how I feel. Yes, I'm on my way to completing a huge goal of mine which is to become debt free but, since every extra ounce of money is going towards that I'm left with little to no money to play around with. It's of my own doing, I know this but, I rather wait out the next few months board out of my mind then have to spend another year worrying about debt. 

Still... it's been hard really hard and my blog and art have taken to the back burner.  So I've decided to try to get back on track, and open myself up to different possibilities, first off I'm going to take this here blog and turn it in a slightly different direction or I guess I should say a few more directions. I'm still going to put up all the little adventures I have but I'm also going to let this be a place where I can store and catalog all the different inspirations I gather along the way. From fashion, home decor, food, music to photography, art, travel, reading and anything else I discover along the way. I guess what I'm trying to say is you'll be seeing a lot more of me in the weeks and months to come. Here's to brighter skies ahead.

Thank you all for sticking by me!!

Mini Adventures

You may not believe this but I am trying to get better about posting. Lately I've been uninspired and tired. I should be pleased at how green everything is getting but the back and forth between cold, not so cold, rainy, and then sunny is making me wish old mother nature would make up her mind on whether it's spring or summer. However, Chris and I did fit in a couple adventures between the thunderstorms, which were lovely and made up for indecisive nature.

Oh and I guess I should do another introduction. Chris is my boyfriend, and we've been together for a little over eight years. Crazy how time flies. He's funny, sweet, strong, he's my rock, one of my best friends, and what can I say he's my guy! And I love my guy!

It must have been a few weeks ago that we went up to Red Lodge for a hike, but I don't remember for sure. By the way I have terrible memory and don't retain much beyond a few days let alone a few weeks but I'm working on that. So dates and names, I don't do so well with.  

Anyway from what I do remember, it was sunny and beautiful the air was crisp and the remnants of winter still stood their ground. The hike was great there was no one for miles and miles we had it all to ourselves. It was a good day!

Ahhh... the happy couple! I just realized he's not smiling in any of these well I'll change that.

There we go... That's the smile I love!

Ok, so if Red Lodge was a few weeks ago then the cave was two weeks ago?? Yep two weeks ago! So we went and saw the pictograph cave that was right out side of Billings. It was really fascinating to see. There's over 106 pictographs throughout the cave, although some have worn away over time. Archaeologists also found stone and bone tools, pottery shards, and other artifacts dating around 3000 b.c to 500 a.d. Amazing, I love history and standing in place where people once stood thousands of years ago was really a mind opener.

Well that's all that I got for now, with the anticipated warm weather approching hopefully I'll get my stride back and I'll find inspiration in all sorts of places.

Till next time...
