Cranberry Lemonade Margarita

If you could build a dream board for your life right now, what would it look like? Seriously, sit back and consider it. Mine would be a combination of Airstream campers, spacious views, travel backpacks, and a truck that somehow hauled Handsome, the dogs, and my bikes. It would be filled with long nights shared with good company around bonfires and the occasional brunch while listening to crashing waves. It would mean that I was earning a solid living snapping photos of wonderful smiles and inspiring places.

Mine would be a combination of Airstream campers, spacious views, travel backpacks, and a truck that somehow hauled Handsome, the dogs, and my bikes. It would be filled with long nights shared with good company around bonfires and the occasional brunch while listening to crashing waves. It would mean that I was earning a solid living snapping photos of wonderful smiles and inspiring places.  Home would be a small open building with a large kitchen and big deck or patio. There would be string lights and cocktails.

Sometimes I worry that I am caught up in the moment. That I am making up for missed opportunities or that I have really fallen off the deep end and am spiraling out of control flushing my life down a toilet. In a few weeks I head to Peru to take more photos, explore Machu Picchu, and eat local food. I’ll be paying it off for a year. But then I remember that vision board…. This is exactly what I’m looking for. It isn’t a picket fence, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Some people want beautiful homes and beatuiful cars. Some people want to climb the ladder and they are great at it, always getting higher. And here I sit in a cafe writing this. There is a group of teachers to my left, four men in suites and ties discussing legal matters, and several couples meeting for a lunch date…. I am here in running pants and a hoodie waiting for the skies to clear so I can get a run in and planning on where my camera goes tomorrow.

What does your vision board look like? Are you the next Julia Child? A modern Aubry Hepburn? An Olympic horseback rider? Without limitations – what would your life look like?

Oh man, if I could travel the world, eat all the local food, learn how to cook it, and hike to sights that can only be seen by doing so, that'd be most wonderful. Snapping photos all the way of course. Which is probably why I too sometimes take trips even when I cannot afford them because I need to live! I may have this crazy silly degree that took me almost a decade to acquire but it's not my life. Maybe I shouldn't have wasted my time doing it (and did almost quit with a masters) but heck now I get to make people call me doctor - well not really but I could if they were being mean. But I digress. Hand me a big glass of this because I'm about to turn 30 and sometimes you just need to throw caution to the wind. I cannot wait to see the photos you take in Peru!
