Currently: Birthday Edition at 37

I turn 37 on Friday and thought it would be fun to pay respects to my 36th year!

Home: I (we) called 6 places "home" this year. We started in Oregon (running RimRock Inn), went to Colorado for a few weeks, then flew to New Zealand for 6 months, returned to Colorado in April, spent a few months in Danville, VA, went up to New Jersey for a few weeks and are now in northern Maine. 

Number of Long Road Trips:  3  

Plane Rides: 5

Miles Hiked: Approximately 2,200 miles

Countries Visited: 3

States Visited: 20 - California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Utah, Arizona, Wyoming, Colorado, Kansas, Kentucky, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine

Obsessed With This Song: Freaks by Timmy Trumphet and Savage

New Addiction Discovered: Mountain Biking (and I really want a better mountain bike now)

Saddest Moment: Losing McKinley (our cat who my parents adopted when we became nomadic)

Proudest Moment: Reaching Bluff, the southern tip of the South Island in New Zealand

Favorite Book: The Martian by Andy Weir

Favorite Movie: What Happens in the Shadows (a New Zealand movie) … it was available for $0.99 to rent on iTunes this week … check it out if you can!!

Favorite Place Visited: The entire country of New Zealand. I miss it everyday. 

Hardest Decision: Selling our house and deciding where we should work/live next


Biggest Lesson Learned: Learning when to stand up for myself and when to back down (still working on this).

Learning to stand up for myself...oh my, I'll join you on that one. Let's just say this year has been an eye opener for self improvement.

Happy early Birthday! :)
