Voyage of the Soul: Embracing the Adventure called Life

Voyage of the Soul: Embracing the Adventure called Life

Grab a cup of your favorite beverage and settle in, because I'm about to pull back the curtain and invite you into the unfiltered chaos of my life. Welcome to my little slice of the internet, nestled snugly in the heart of the Pacific Northwest, where towering mountains and endless forests serve as the backdrop to my daily adventures.

In my fabulous forties, I've become a seasoned adventurer on the wild ride of life. With more than two decades of marriage in the books, I'm lucky to have a partner who's always up for a good time – whether we're rocking sweatpants or hitting the town in style. Together, we've stitched a patchwork of memories, laughing our way through the ups and downs of marriage with plenty of love and a healthy dose of fun.

During our journey, we've been blessed with two incredible children—a boy and a girl—who fill our days with joy, laughter, and the occasional sibling squabble. Parenthood has been a wild ride, filled with sleepless nights, soccer games, and countless moments of wonder as we watch our children grow into their unique selves.

You should know that I have an unquenchable thirst for adventure. I thrive on the thrill of adventure, whether it's side-by-siding through rugged mountain trails, savoring the crisp mountain air, or embarking on impromptu road trips to destinations unknown. The mountains hold a special place in my heart, serving as both a sanctuary and playground, where I find solace and inspiration in equal measure. 

Naturally, every escapade must include a margarita in hand and a plate of tacos within reach. I'm a firm believer in relishing life's modest joys, whether it's indulging in a lavish feast or enjoying the company of loved ones. And let's not overlook my cherished Xtratuf boots— Rain or shine, my go-to footwear is undoubtedly my trusty Xtratuf boots. 

But life isn't always sunshine, Xtratuf’s and tacos. As a realist, I understand that life can be messy, chaotic, and downright challenging at times. I've experienced my fair share of heartache and loss, learning to navigate the complexities of grief with courage and grace. Yet, amidst the darkness, I've discovered a resilience that runs deep—a resilience born from love, hope, and unwavering faith. 

It is this resilience that fuels my passion for helping other women chase their dreams, supporting them as they navigate life's twists and turns with courage and conviction. While I may not be a professional, I am real and relatable, offering my own life experiences as a beacon of hope and inspiration to those who may be struggling, or just need a friend.

So, dear reader, I invite you to join me on this journey of self-discovery, as winter blues, travel adventures, and the rollercoaster ride of watching our kids grow up – these are just a few of the things that keep life interesting, don't you agree? As we navigate the twists and turns of adulthood, there's so much to unpack – finding joy in the little things, coping with the quiet after the kids leave the nest, and yes, even dealing with the unexpected, like when those same kids move back home! From exploring our passions to seeking peace in the chaos, from cozying up with a good book to jamming out to our favorite tunes, let's dive into it all together. This space is where we'll dish about everything from mental health to marriage, guilt to gourmet cooking, and everything in between.

So, grab a cup of coffee, settle in, and let's chat about this wild ride called life.

May your path be filled with courage and strength to take the next step,

Stephanie Sky
