      Spring Outdoor Gear Guide for Women

        I just came home from first weekend of sun this spring. Warmer weather comes slowly here in the Tetons, but once it does, the sun is intense and the temperatures vary quickly and often throughout the day. It’s literally just above freezing in the morning, hot in the direct sunlight in the afternoon and storms […]

          Carve Your Path + Discount code!

            If you’re anything like me, you’re a “multi-tasking ninja”, trying to do 10,000 things at once and often forgetting the importance of YOUR sanity and well-being.

            Fifteen Minutes Isn’t Enough.

              When I started this blog six and a half years ago, I had a 2 year old and a newborn. Life was so much simpler then, and yet I remember it being so much more stressful. Being a new mom is so hard. Time and more kids have certainly changed me. My goal then was […]

                  Ditch the Hassle of Car Seats

                    Ditch the car seats? What?!?!? Did I seriously just say that?? I tend to be Miss Safety, but seriously this product is changing how we do car safety around here, especially for traveling. Because it is SO much easier than hauling car seats. This past December we traveled with 5 kids aged 8 and under […]

                    Favorite Gear to Straddle the Seasons for Women

                      I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but people are starting to make a bit of a switch to spring, at least in the gear world.
