***Three days left!!! Don’t miss out on entering our giveaway contest three posts back*** Currently living/working in: “Unjobbing” in Colorado!! Unjobbing is a term I recently discovered that is apparently used by A LOT of people. It was first coined in a self-published book by Michael Fogler in 1996. It perfectly describes us: living the life we want…

Yoga

Did you know that 9.5% of our U.S. population is practicing yoga? That’s up from 6.1% in 2007. This makes yoga roughly as popular as golf.  J & I are part of that 9.5%.   That’s right, J has been taking yoga!!! Believe it or not, nearly 28% of those practicing yoga are males.  I…

Midwest Tour Recap/Visits

We both love, love, love standing up in front of people and educating them about our passions and adventures. But I think the thing I enjoy even more is…

Island Life Wrap-up

We said goodbye to our 2-month caretaking gig on that secret island today, but want wholeheartedly to come back someday. We are mountain people through and through, but there was something magical about seeing the golden honey and grapefruit sky sink into the ocean every single night. And, we never tired of watching and listening to…
