Life has been humming right along, and with inspiration from Kate at 365 til…, here’s a look at what’s been up lately.
Reading // I recently finished Jim Whittaker’s A Life on the Edge. And, a pretty charmed one at that. He grew REI into what it is today, was the first American to summit Everest, sailed around the world, grew up in the Pacific Northwest… pretty much everyone’s dream life (at least mine anyway!). That said, he’s about as modest as they come. Incredibly wise, too… one of my favorite quotes from the book: It’s about making the most of every moment, about stretching your own boundaries, about being willing to learn constantly, and putting yourself in situations where learning is possible – sometimes even critical to your survival. Being out on the edge, with everything at risk, is where you learn – and grow – the most.
Daydreaming about // Traveling the world. Between all the BuzzFeed compilations of all the amazingness around the world, the National Geographic insta feed, Kal Barteski’s recent trip to Iceland, Emily‘s Thailand adventures, Laura‘s Italian cycling adventure… I want to sell everything, cram what’s left in a vintage Airstream, and travel and bike for a living. Is that too much to ask?! Because WHY NOT. Nick, you in?
