Check In

Happy Holidays!
Week two!  50 miles on foot and bike so far and we are loving life.  Leah said to me this week, "Mama, you know why I love walking so much?  I do because we get to really see things.  You don't see things in a car mama.  Out here, we notice everything."  Yep, that's my amazing little miss sunshine and she's right.

One thing, that I have made a mental note about when traveling without a car,  always carry some money and an empty backpack because inevitably I am near a store and think to myself, doh! if I only brought my wallet.
Lists are becoming essential too.  I think I underestimated how easily and frequent those trips back to the store for that forgotten item occurred with a car.  Efficiency is my new friend.

Thought about any new ways to BE LOCAL in your community yet?  The forms of giving are countless.  I have talked to friends this week that are on the cusp of commitments of their own.  I cannot wait to hear what they are!  Share good people!  Maybe your commitment is what someone else needs to read to feel inspired.  It's almost a new year, a perfect time to resolve to be an active participant in your community's vitality.  Each and every step we take, no matter how small, makes a difference.

Have a joyous week friends.  Remember how blessed you are and share thanks.

Cheers, Shonna

  1. Good for you guys! I share Leah's perspective when I ride my bike - so much easier to observe the terrain. Love you guys!
