celebrate everyday: day 10


I took this photo at the DMV today:

License Plate Wall

…and I had a shockingly easy, helpful experience. (See?! There’s hope for everything!)

The license plate is always the first thing I look at when I see a car. Still. Since I was little, anytime we drove anywhere, I would look for plates from states I hadn’t seen before, and daydream about where the people inside the cars were going. I would wonder about what these places looked like, and fantasize about going to them someday.

I’ve spent time in all 50 states and 19 countries at this point. Seeing this wall yesterday made me feel that fire inside I love, for adventure and the possibility of everything out there, to see, be, and do. I still believe “travel” is the fastest route to your truth; Putting yourself in any completely foreign/uncomfortable/new environment, staying flexible, and figuring out how to independently navigate is incredibly empowering.

Today I celebrate possibility in the unknown, and all the magic that can happen when you take a step towards life to somewhere new. 

Today is the day. The road awaits. Where are you going?

road trip!

Blue Lollipop Road has been invited by Taltree Arboretum & Gardens to be a guest at their Annual Gala this Friday night! Of course I accepted. What’s not to love about supporting a a gorgeous green space that so many good people are working to continuously preserve?!

I’ve never been to Valparaiso before, so naturally I’m excited to explore this area. The weather report for Friday is looking like sunny and warm so it will be the perfect setting for great photo ops around the gardens. This Vermont girl loves the Windy City but really loves getting back into beautiful green space too.

Are you in the Chicagoland or Valparaiso, IN area? Do you like to go to spots you can relax, be inspired and breathe in some fresh air? We love it. Come join us for this event on Friday!
