Adventure {#wholemama}

Sometimes in the middle of my everyday I find myself longing for adventure.

You know the type where you fly off and only have yourself to entertain. Then, preferably, you are surrounded by a foreign language and off to explore new places and see beautiful things.

That is my favorite type of adventure.

However thinking of that type of adventure can leave me feeling shortchanged and longingful. Not bad, just dreaming of a different life from now.

Life these days is filled with mini-adventures. The time for foreign countries will come again (hopefully sooner than I expect), but now is the time for yearly trips to the ocean, outside days at the park, visits with friends, new projects, and other types of mini-adventures that are more easily accommodating to the small things.

Somehow we have managed to fill our time quite full these last few weeks (such that I’ve had very little time for writing), but still stay close to home in our adventurings.

Besides our trip to the ocean, of course. :)

So instead of meandering on about adventures not had and had, I am simply sharing an adventure mini-series from our last few weeks.

-The ocean and a delightfully pretty river-valley!

  • Planting new things, enjoying other’s blooms, and discovering worms.


  • Many adventures at the park, walking to the park, and all things in between.


  • Learning to play with our delightful baby.


  • Watching said delightful baby try to eat new things.


And everything in between.

I’m sure more grand adventures are in our future, but I like appreciating these mini-adventures along the way.

Here’s to landscaping, eating, playing, and walking as adventures all their own!

  1. Erika, I love to adventure in the little spaces. I think you are right, it is there when we look for it, and we also get to help the little ones find it.


  2. I am also turning my attention to little adventures… and a few bigger (roadtrip) ones as well. Gorgeous photos.
