Road trip

The girls and I just got back from a “glamping” trip with another family we have been friends with for most of the kids’ lives. Mr Turtle wasn’t able to come due to work and lingering illness (boo). But we had fun, made memories and deepened connections.

Our first destination, a yurt:

I finally was able to calm down on this trip, moving away from the feeling that I am perpetually chasing or being chased by something. We’ll see if it lasts.

My solo driving experience also gave me time to meditate on questions that are ever present in my mind, which I wrote a little about over on my other blog.

Finally, my favourite road trip song (“Road Trip,” by Runrig). “Get free, believe, go real”….. A worthy goal for summer!


  1. This looks lovely! Glad you enjoyed it!

    1. It was! Thank you. I am also enjoying having a rest today on the couch at home. :-D
