Fall is here

wooden ring from Franz Josef, New Zealand

We just got back from New Zealand! WOW!! What an incredible epic trip. Honestly the trip of a lifetime. I cannot wait to share it on here. I am completely overwhelmed by the beauty that is the Southern Alps. We landed late last night only to find that fall has finally hit Australia. Still bundled up from our road trip along the Tasman Sea that morning, it was nice to not have to shed any layers when we stepped off the plane. It felt like heaven sleeping with the windows open last night.

This morning I'm sitting here still bundled up in blankets, with a hot cup of coffee, enjoying this cool morning, looking at our hiking backpacks strewn about in the living room, overflowing with dirty laundry, and a re-fridgerator that is in bad need of food. I have so much to do today, but I'm privately celebrating this morning. This just happens to be my 100th post on the blog! A huge milestone, which also comes with over 8,000 readers and counting! I never imagined I would have this much to say, and so many people would want to read it. I feel incredibly blessed and thankful for where life has taken me these last 10 years.

I also can't help but think of all the great things I have to share with you here on the blog in the next month. Here's a sneak peak...
