Life’s Adventures

2014 is here and there are some adventures that I want to have.  Being a wife, mom of 3 little ones, and social worker does not exactly make having adventures easy.  I think that there are ways , though, that I can create different adventures that I can create for both myself and my family!  

I think that creating and learning or improving some of my creative endeavors is one way that I can create a new adventure for myself.  Since my passion is creating, I think learning more about the crafts that I love or trying out new crafts is something that will create both adventure and stress relief for me.  I keep saying that I am going to make time to be creative, but I don’t always follow through.  This is going to be a challenge, but a fun and exciting challenge.

I can create adventures with food.  I know that my husband will be excited to try new foods and go on an adventure to different countries by trying new and exciting foods.  Cooking new foods will also go along with my goal to be creative.  I am tired of having the same old foods all the time.  I love eating out at different ethnic restaurants and maybe I can recreate that at home.

I know that our budget is limited, but I want to try to create different adventures for our family that are budget friendly.  We are in the thick of winter right now and I am dealing with a herniated disc, but I want to go hiking and camping more and take more day trips.  We went camping with the kids for the first time last year and had a really good time.  I want to do that more often.  We have a couple of great tents and I think it would be a great way to have different adventures in our neck of the woods without spending a ton of money and a way to create great memories for all of us!

I haven’t exactly been keeping up with blogging, but I hope to post some of my different adventures: hand crafts, food, and travel, as the year goes on.  I am looking forward to a great new year in 2014 and look forward to putting it down so that I can go back and reminisce about our great year.
