My mission statement~

I intend on "trying" to live a life that is about: not putting in my mouth things that are bad for me or have come from an animal that was treated cruely while alive on this earth and during slaughter, creating lasting fond memories for my children and grandchildren, adventure, challenging myself, respect others regardless of species, race, color or creed, taking risks, having fun, being grateful, respecting myself & my body, being authentically myself, taking responsibility for my actions, being proactive, being a problem solver, taking action, introspection, transition, change, honesty, growth, loving & helping others, having integrity, doing my best, being easy on myself, enjoying this world, becoming well read, seeing the wonder of it all and never allowing fear to hold me back!

Part of why my title says: Adventure girl wanna bee


My grandpa had Harley's, a Harley shop and a Honda shop at different times in his life. I had a VERY diversified upbringing, living with different families and at times was quit the (girly) tomboy. My grandpa was a constant presence in my life though.

I have wanted my own motorcycle (and four wheeler and boat) my whole life but I have just had other priorities to take care of. I wanted a convertible my whole life and finally have one. It is one of my daily joys in life and I never want to be without one again. I fully plan to have a motorcycle and boat someday as well. Just takes time.

Anyway, Susan, from: http://raisintoast.typepad.com/raisin_toast/ had this picture on her blog a couple of weeks ago and I mean it when I say I melted and became weak in the knee's upon staring at it. I investigated and asked Susan all about it and she was gracious enough to tell me about the author and where to find it. "Thank you again Susan"!

There are several reason's why I am now obsessed with this photo: I LOVE everything about it-the colors, the time period, the bike style, the girl, her cloths and so on. I have it hanging on my fridge.

Finally figured out how to make a comment. I think it is so awesome that you are blogging. You are an amazing person Heidi. You are continually working at growing as a person and I admire that in you. Thanks for being a wonderful friend, one who I can talk to about important meaningful things in life and also just the fun trivial stuff.

Thanks for stopping by my cabin today! we have another thing in common, my dad was also a motorcycle dad when I was growing up, used to race professionally and everything. I never was crazy about them though. But I understand the draw you have to them.

Come back and visit anytime! And your Cooper is just so adorable!
