Hi, I’m Tara.

What started out as a private blog to document our adoption journey has evolved into my journey through therapy, spiritual awakening and whatever I feel like writing. Without our struggles to build a family, I’m not sure I’d be waking up, and for that I’m grateful.

Some of My Favorite Outdoorsy Places

Where we did this.  Have I mentioned my paralyzing fear of heights?
Vai.l is my favorite ski area by far.  Also the scene of the summer's Interna.tional Da.nce Fes.tival, which I like to go to every now and then.
Fall hiking near Vai.l Sa.nd Dunes Nat.ional Park
Cre.sted Bu.tte is one of my favorite mountain towns.  We've been there in the fall and winter.  Next up is summer for their amazing wildflowers!

Ara.pahoe Ba.sin.  Our beach party spot during spring skiing.  To get this prime spot, we had to leave the house at 4:30am!

Stea.boat Spr.ings.  A great day here, especially for S, the powderhound!

Look at all that snow on S's truck!  It was 20 degrees below zero when I took this picture.  brrrr
