Edge of happiness

Gooseneck state park in southeastern Utah was so dreamy at sunset and I felt a surge of happiness overcome me. How do you bottle up something so special and be able to return to it when life gets tough?

Sunset πŸŒ… at Goosenecks State Park, Utah
  • My hot pot made a killer packaged cheese enchilada goop πŸ˜‹ – seriously!! πŸ§€
  • Hot chocolate β˜•οΈ always soothes the soul
  • Reading a book in the comfort of my hammock without a care of what is going on in the β€œreal” world 🌎 πŸ“–
  • Stargazing without any light pollution except the glow of a brilliant moon 🌚 πŸ”­
  • Speaker softly playing a cheesy playlist πŸ”Š 🎢
  • Walking along the edge of a sharp chiseled cliffside imagining the history & weather that shaped this dreamy landscape 🏜 β›ˆ
  • The simplicity of being at a campsite in the middle of nowhere is so enthralling & deeply moving πŸ€”
  • The distinct chill in the air as it hits 9pm (as I’m usually up for another 3 hours), so I bundle up in more layers 😴

As I begin to appreciate the small things once again, I have a gained my power back and the weight I have put on my shoulders for 23 years begins to slide off into nothingness.

Love adventure travel, work hard & play hard, happy in both extremes - relaxing on a remote beach or rappelling down cliffs, take joy in simple things, love being on & near the water, visited 55 countries & 47 states so far in this crazy beautiful life! Goals by my 50th birthday - 50 states. 75 countries. 50 national parks. Be in Antarctica on my big day.
