    Musings: Full Moon Hike #OptOutside

    Freezing bliss for a moonlit hike adventure. Are you a fan of co-ops? I am. Have been since I’ve worked at one and regularly shop at one. It made sends to become one with REI too. I didn’t even realize they were a co-op until more recently. And, you only have to pay $20 to be a member AND they give you a $20 gift card in return…you just have to wait one day to use it. It’s a win-win for everyone. All that being said, I’ve always swooned over thier #OptOutside campaing during Black Friday. But it seems as if they have extended past just that day and it…

    City Girl Hikes: Lake Clementine Trail – Auburn, CA

    Kinda like a staycation… …but, NOT! I thought I had more posts specific about various hikes, but I guess I don’t.

    Thinking Out Loud – Musings Para Mi

    Renewed, straight into busy… Amanda at .RUNNING WITH SPOONS. Oddly, it doesn’t feel at all weird that I took yesterday off – from blogging and work. I did think about the WIAW post that would have normally gone up, but I didn’t feel a huge desire to run and write one before I enjoyed my day. So, I didn’t. It was nice to have a mid-week break, I feel renewed, although work is busy. Tradeshow season is upon us! Spring Break // I miss them. I miss that free week of nothing to do during the first part of Spring. Apparently when you have kids, you don’t miss it as…
