“If you want to do something bad enough, you will find a way, if not, you’ll find an excuse.” – Jim Rohn
This is my all-time favorite quote because it kicks my butt and challenges me to question my priorities and determine if they are really mine, someone else’s, or what I think I should want to do.
We can all say we don’t have time but if someone offered me an opportunity to experience a dream adventure, I would somehow find the time and make a way….and if it is really something that I want to do, what’s getting in the way and how can I change that?
I like to make a running tab of adventures that I want to cross off. I’ve been fortunate to cross many off the list this past year so that means that I keep looking for new ones to add to the list.
Looking for a gift that keeps on giving?
Why don’t you give someone the gift of adventure instead?
Here are a few reasons why you should consider giving an experience gift instead of a physical one.
I LOVE to experience unique overnights.
Overnight in a Treehouse. Check. Museum. Check. Submarine. Check. Aquarium. Check. Tepee. Check. Kings Island Amusement Park. Check.
…..so when I found out that the Cincinnati Zoo offered family overnights where you can sleep in African Safari style tents near the giraffe area, I had to check it out!
El Paso, Texas is ones of those cities that I instantly fell in love with.
The landscape is so different from what I see in the Midwest and yet it had a few similarities.
I live in a Tri-State area where it is common to cross state borders daily and El Paso’s location is a Tri-city with access to both New Mexico and Juarez, Mexico.
It almost feels like it’s own distinct place because the landscape is so different from the flatter parts of the Texas.
Greensboro, North Carolina offers lots of family fun for all ages! I’m sharing more about the adventures that you will want to add to your list during a visit.
I’ll admit that I tend to be more of a dog person, but cats have really grown on me over the years.
My experience has been that dogs tend to be pretty easy to win over and cats tend to enjoy making you work a little more for their affection.
Our family doesn’t own any pets, but we do love to visit other people’s dogs at the dog park…. and now we can visit cats…and even potentially take them home with us.
We recently joined Food Hussy on an adventure to visit the first cat cafe in the Cincinnati region, Kitty Brew Cat Cafe, for a facebook live for Vocalpoint. We had a great time and I wanted to share some tips to help you make the most out of your first visit.
There are several adventures around the Tri-State that will get your heart racing. I’m highlighting extreme adventures that you can try from each state that equal the thrill seekers trifecta of fun.
I look forward to the butterfly show at the Krohn Conservatory in Cincinnati every year. The butterfly exhibit takes us from spring to summer with a gorgeous array of butterflies and flowers.
I have to start out with a confession, I honestly didn’t really know if the Toledo Zoo could compare to my home zoo (Cincinnati Zoo) and I was pleasantly surprised that the Toledo Zoo exceeded my expectations.
Our first visit to the Toledo Zoo began at the Aquarium with a Behind-the-Scenes Tour with Ron Fricke, deputy director of the Zoo.
