Winter 2017-2018 Bucket List

IMG_3185.jpg

FINALLY. It’s finally. Freakin’. Here. The winter 2017-2018 bucket list!

I realize I’m about 2 months late to post this. It probably should have gone up at the beginning of December if we’re being real. But I promise I had the list written in my mind all along! It just didn’t make it’s way over to the blog until now.

Oopsies. Well, better late than never, amirite? Besides, I only posted New Years resolution ideas last week, so clearly the demographic that enjoys this blog has to be those people who are procrastinators just like me.

The point is, I’ve known what I wanted on my winter bucket list this year and I’ve been crossing off items already. I just never shared them with you until today.Β  Continue reading “Winter 2017-2018 Bucket List”

4-Month Wrap-Up: Skiing With Olympians, Getting Licensed, & Travels

IMG_3268

We need to catch up. There are so many things to update you on.

Here’s the skinny: I’ve been writing less lately because I’ve been traveling a ton more. I decided back in the summer that travel is my #1 adventure priority, so I’ve been catching planes what feels like every weekend to soak in all the American cities I can. On those rare weekends when I’m in my new home state, I’m off to the mountains, exploring all of Colorado’s nooks and crannies.

At some point I’ll do a full-on travel update post. (And I think I’m going to start writing weekend travel guides. They’d be chock full of the best spots to hit in different American cities, a-la my own research and experience. Thoughts on whether that’d be cool to read?)

But for now I’m going to give a quick lil skim of my life the past four months, because it’s been too long and we need to catch up.

The past four months, I… Continue reading “4-Month Wrap-Up: Skiing With Olympians, Getting Licensed, & Travels”

3-Month Wrap Up: Getting Rich In Vegas, White Water Rafting, & Committing One Act of Kindness Every Day

I miss this place. This blog makes me feel the most me. Whenever I’ve just finished writing a post, I feel like I’m floating on a current of energy, like I’m leaning into what makes me tick.

So I’ve been looking forward to making a return to write this for a while now. I’m sitting here on the calmest afternoon I’ve experienced in a month, sipping hours-old french press coffee (and it’s important that I tell you it’s french press because I have been a lazy, trashy Keurig coffee drinker for a while now and I’m very impressed at this new development in my life), and admiring all the summer-in-Denver that is happening just outside the window.

Today feels deeply good. Life feels deeply good.

And I can’t wait to tell you all about why.

These past few months, I… Continue reading “3-Month Wrap Up: Getting Rich In Vegas, White Water Rafting, & Committing One Act of Kindness Every Day”

Summer 2017 Bucket List!

IMG_1476

LOL. Just, lol.

It’s July 19th and I am only just now creating a summer bucket list. Goooooood job, Amanda. πŸ˜‰

I’ve never waited this long into a season to create a bucket list – normally I have it ready to go by the time the first day of whatever time of year happens to be rolling in. I think I’d typically be pretty upset at myself for letting the first month and a half of summer pass without a bucket list in order, because I know when I keep a bucket list I live life more fully and I’m more likely to take advantage of every day.Β  Continue reading “Summer 2017 Bucket List!”
