Nature-walked with Family

The mountains offer beautiful parks and areas to visit, so we took to exploring them. I’m always game for photography adventures!

We walked around the island that is sometimes submerged when the river’s water rises.

My stepfather is prone to finding wild animals wherever he goes, which led to a photo-op with a tiny snake.

  • Cuddled and Adopted a Penguin The weekend before last, I celebrated my birthday up north at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore. According to my research its the closest zoo that offers penguin experiences/encounters. (And just $45 for a cheek to beak experience). I’d already lost my heart at one experience with Busch/Seaworld, but I wanted to see the penguins at one of [...]
  • Visited Mill Mountain Zoo           I was craving another animal experience for my birthday, even if it couldn’t involve penguins. Luckily for me, a local small zoo, Mill Mountain Zoo had a free admission day during my birthday weekend, so we were able to check something off the local bucket list! I quickly learned that [...]
  • Kissed an Alpaca in Amish Country This was another year where I did not have the chance to leave the country, but I was able to visit an Amish community and appreciate their culture.

  • Weathered a Hurricane in OBX Another “Favorite Unblogged 2015 moment” Like most summers/fall we were able to vacation again in the beautiful Outerbanks.

Randomly, I discovered Lindsey Stirling and her unique sound of dubstep beats mixed with classic violin via Pandora, and she’s been on of my favorite artists since. Her story of overcoming a horrible critic during America’s Got Talent, is inspiring. In 2015 I was lucky enough to [...]

About Me

Hi! My name is Erin, and this is a place to "process out loud" in the words of my friends. You've probably noticed that the theme is kind of a wide theme, that is much like my life as I'm interested in MANY things: traveling, photography, jogging (its new!), being crafty, homesteading, firearms/self defense, and learning how to be a good wife. Through all of these things my goal is growing to know Christ more, and to make Him known. Each post shares a little about the promise that God has given me, that He'll finish what he began in me! (Phil 1:6) So thank you for joining me on this wonderful adventure.
