Welcome to #newzealand 🇳🇿 a country of stunning and diverse natural beauty: jagged mountains, rolling pasture land, steep fiords, pristine trout-filled lakes, raging rivers, scenic beaches, and active volcanic zones. 🌋 🐑 🌳
My heart is so full ❤️❤️ I cannot wait to send all these goodies to Milton tomorrow. This sweet boy is so deserving of having a wonderful Christmas even though he will be enduring heartworm treatments and a lot of kennel time.
And of course, had to get my sweet boy Malachi a new toy too 😍 #dogmomlife
I am shy as can be, super quiet & extremely introverted - at least until I am super comfortable with you.⠀
I keep to myself. I’ve always been the girl that would go to events & be too afraid to walk up to random people & start a conversation. I never knew what to say.⠀
But now, here I am talking to new people every day. You never know what relationships or connections you’re going to make.⠀
This has helped me step out of my comfort zone in more ways than I imagined. I’m comfortable talking to new people & making new friends & even going live on Facebook videos in front of a bunch of strangers.⠀
I have gone to coaching events with people that I didn’t even know. I went vaguely knowing one person & left with three new friends. I didn’t feel awkward. I felt like I belonged there. Surrounded by people just like me. And in that moment I knew that this was right for me.⠀
Are you shy and quiet and introverted like me? Are you trying to get out of that and step out of your comfort zone more?⠀
Day 2 of the #7daylocalparkschallenge was a swift 20 minutes at Four Mile Creek Preserve in Webster, NY. @branbron23 joined and we had a delightful conversation about the importance of maintaining a clean room and how that relates to a clean mind. I cleaned my room today and feel liberated! Direct quote from Brandon "dude, I can actually see your floor". I need to change my habits to make sure it stays clean! .
I challenge YOU to take part in the 7 day local parks challenge! It is so simple and the goal is to get outside and give local parks the attention they deserve! Check the link in bio for a quick podcast episode giving out details of the challenge.
They say still waters are the most dangerous. A danger might be hiding just anywhere and you may come across it absolutely unexpectedly. You should always think one step ahead of what might happen next! This ability of Denny helped us stay safe in various ocassions.
On some ocassions, though, we're feeling more adventurous and leaving our sober thinking behind. This is when the most interesting stories take place!
Our two cents, don't be afraid to act adventurous but never overestimate your abilities! Can you relate and what was your most recent really wild experience?
PS. If you just want to laugh a little before bedtime, go check our stories to see some of our very first underwater photos! 😁
So I know we’ve been quiet (sorry! 🙈) but things have been so crazy with travel planning, Christmas coming up and of course, to make matters worse: a sick, teething baby. 😣😓
We’re honestly having the wildest time of our lives right now with Dan and I sleeping in shifts to make sure Benji’s fever doesn’t spike again. The projectile vomiting is probably my second-most hated part...I feel like our washing hamper is filled every day - like, how do we even own that much clothing?! 😫
But first would be the crying...hearing Benji in pain...oh man, I just wish I could take it all away!! I’ve cried with Benji more times in the last week than I ever have with anyone else to date! 😫 and just typing that is giving me a lump in my throat all over again... Only thing keeping me going is this quote...so I’m sharing it with you in hopes that it will give you the encouragement you may need. Whatever you’re going through, you’ll be stronger in the end...just like the teething: your current struggle could be a pain because it’s bringing out something powerful inside of you that you really need but never know you had within you! 💙💗💚
Toward the end of the scenic drive at the Little River Canyon National Preserve, we decided to take the Eberhart Trail to the bottom of the canyon. The ranger warned us that as steep as it is down, it’s just as steep the 3/4 mile up. Although we were a bit out of breathe once we reached the top, the hike down was worth it.
The Little River was emerald green and the views up toward the canyon were outstanding. Jackson took a drink from it and had it been a little warmer, we may have taken a dip.
Waiting for a world of adventure! Mom,Dad! Come on let’s go!

Words have never been more true for us pups and pawrents that care for us. Little did we know we were all meant to find each other.
Winter in South Florida: Where the cold is just a front and the palms trees stay green. Don’t worry babies, Mama will have you in the snow soon ⛄️.
When I was little, in the winter I’d wake up every morning hoping for snow. I can’t show you not one picture of me frolicking in the cold, but there’s always the memories. The memories of me getting wrapped up with socks (yes, at least 2 pairs), shirts, pants galore, eating my cream of wheat or cornmeal porridge as soon as possible. All just to go play in the white fields of frost until my nose was prickly red and my mittens were icy and drenched.
Even though I make sure to take pictures of every adventure and simple fun moment, I want them to hold on to the memories. Memories grant us the privilege of snippets of time we can’t hold, but can remember we had. Even if we don’t have the photographs, we’ll still have a collection of memories far better than just what our eyes can see.
