#OTR50 Day 171: 940 Plus 1

Right this moment it is Thursday night, my last evening on the Vermont vacation with the eldest. We had a very chill day where we didn’t get in the car once. We “wiked” the mountainside trails that start within view of our room between meals. This time taking the more rocky paths but also staying […]

#OTR50 Day 170: The Road More Travelled

Another day with a decent chunk of time in nature. We hiked up the ski mountain and back down again — mostly on well-worn trails. I then sat for a few hours on the balcony porch hoping for inspiration. I did write a bit…. but I’m not even remotely close to pleased with the results […]

#OTR50 Day 169: Nature Walks & Naps

Today was day three of the Max & Me holiday getaway. We spent the majority of the day out and about in the Vermont woods or back at the room resting between excursions. Six years ago, we visited this same area and during that trip we did two outdoor activities that have been repeated across […]

#OTR50 Day 166: Roadtrip Planning

I’m headed on a mini-getaway tomorrow. Just me and my eldest child. . . the college kid. Quality one on one time in Vermont. This was originally planned months and months ago. 10 to be exact. We have time share points and I’ve been trying to get us back into this property ever since we […]

#OTR50 Day 165: 200 to go. . .

I’ve been chugging along. Day in and day out. Sometimes writing with ease and occasionally every word a struggle. Some days my inner voice is crystal clear and screaming with the need to be heard, to be written, to be shared. Even though I’ve been writing and counting every day, there are moments when they […]
