I stumbled on to these pictures from my trip back a couple of months ago to California. I loved this first one….it’s so JOYFUL! Isn’t it important as we get older, to continue to have fun and find JOY in the things we’re doing? It’s so easy to get boring!!! Always take time to find new things to do, new ways to have fun!!! I LOVE being at the beach, and even though I don’t ever get all the way in the water, I will get my feet wet and maybe even up to my legs!!!
This cover-up is from Anthropologie and I loved wearing it at the beach! Don’t you love the wrapped style? I don’t know that I’ve ever had a “cozy” cover-up before, but this one is definitely COZY! The terrycloth was so warm and nice, like being wrapped up in a warm towel! And what about this hat??? Isn’t it fun?!! The colored pom-poms are such a fun little touch and unlike anything I have. And pom-poms are VERY much on trend!!!!!!! Both are linked below.
I LOVED this quote from Jon Krakauer…
“I’d like to repeat the advice that I gave you before, in that I think you really should make a radical change in your lifestyle and begin to boldly do things which you may previously never have thought of doing, or been too hesitant to attempt. So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.” ~Jon Krakauer, Into the Wild
Beautiful pictures and amazing quote!!! Love it!
Maria thank you! I loved this quote too! It’s easy to read, but sometimes SO HARD to step out of those comfortable places!!!! XO

Hi Shauna! I LOVE LOVE LOVE this quote…..thank you for sharing because it is so very true! I’m 65 years old, was married for 38 years to my very adventurous soulmate. He passed last August and as I pass the first anniversary of life without him I had promised our kids that I would now concentrate on me. So, the first thing I did was a complete physical, caught up on all other details like dentist, mammogram, etc. and I am now 35 lbs into my 50 pound weightloss goal. I tell you all this because I want you to know that you are truly an inspiration to all of us ladies out here that are re-inventing ourselves and constructing a new life of adventure. I just wanna have fun again!!!!!!
Hi Sherry, WOW…you’ve had some really hard struggles!!! But way to go, for picking yourself up and getting on with life and improving on who YOU are! Congratulations for that! I truly believe that no matter our circumstances, if we are really trying each day to be the BEST WE CAN BE, just doing that can bring such peace of mind and happiness!!!! You keep in touch and keep going….one step at a time is how you do that!!!!!! God bless!!!! xo
