Our two and a half week long road trip in January was definitely one for the books. We saw so many things and had so many great experiences that we both will be forever grateful for. I want to keep a conscious effort to keep my business and personal lives separate while integrating just enough of my personal life here so you can get to know me better and see some of my work outside of "work".

Once we got back home to Texas my mom sat me and Pat down at dinner and asked us what our one favorite moment from the trip was. Honestly, she knew this wasn't a fair question, but it stopped me in my tracks. It's unfair to pick one favorite moment, because it changes every day, so today I'm going to share my top 10 moments with you today.

I'm sharing five here, and five on Embracing Messiness!

  1. The fox that welcomed us into Teton National Park the first day we got to Wyoming. Although it did give me a ton of false hope to see a lot more animals.
  2. Snowmobiling through Yellowstone National Park. You can read more about that here!
  3. Patrick teaching me how to ski. His patience and the way he would talk me through the runs was so awesome. I'm definitely no professional but I can get down the mountain now! :) 
  4. Being able to see Horseshoe Bend in person, and the realization of how awesomely created this country, and world, is. Standing at Horseshoe Bend, Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park gave me a greater appreciation for how small we are, and how much greatness we're surrounded by.
  5. Capturing videos of some of our favorite places with Bob. I am currently in producing a film from all of our travels and cannot wait to share that with you all!

If you're interested in reading more about our trip you will soon be able to read all of the blog posts from our adventure, and see a handful more images over on my personal, lifestyle blog, Embracing Messiness. Currently Embracing Messiness is under construction. I am working to bring you a more exciting, adventure-filled lifestyle blog and will be finished as soon as possible!
