celebrate everyday: day 10

1.10.18

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?

Today I celebrate license plates!

It took me a LONG time to give up my green mountain state tags (and I sure didn’t want to), but imagine my delight to find a “Support Soccer” offering as an option for North Carolina.

Perfect. I think I’m in love.

You can take a girl out of Vermont, but you could never take her mojo away.

What are you doing to remember where you came from?

Hey girl, hey! (Lynn, that opening is dedicated to you.) I’m HERE!

Whew. How do you peeps with fido’s and kiddos do it? I have no pets and no little nuggets to run after and my days still fly by like the Blue Angels in an Airshow.

Lately I’ve been at auditions for Dancing with the Stars, HELPING MY CLIENTS GET RID OF ALL THE CRAP IN THEIR LIVES THAT’S KEEPING THEM STUCK, and pretending that I’m a Barker’s Beauty at black tie gala events:

NASCAR Girls

(Ok, only two of those are true. Did I mention I scored my dress for ten bucks? #LessSpendingMoreFreedomHappyLife, baby!)

Behind the scenes I’m always up to something when I disappear from here for more than a few days,  so as usual, I appreciate your patience, your support, and you following along. If you continue to stay tuned, I promise to give a shout out thank you and I love you style in my book of life. The big kahuna is coming!

Happy Thursday.

work, road trip, and doing good things

Hello Friends & Followers!

It’s been a whirlwind of some very busy client work getting some good people downsized, packed up, and moving on to their next life adventures, I’m about to hit the road for my big annual road trip, and BLR Play It Forward 2016 kicks off just ONE week from today!

PIF 2016

Phew! Days fly by, I start to write here, drafts of posts pile up, ideas constantly swirl, I get interrupted to take care of business elsewhere- and poof, a week or two later my sweet blog is left hanging. Sigh.

Funny how I help people simplify their lives and minimize their madness, and I find myself falling asleep at 11pm still with 10 things on my own to-do list. (Life of an entrepreneur! I would’t change a thing:)

As I pack up now close to midnight, I daydream about the morning when I start off on yet another big adventure of my own, windows will be down in the car, it will be nice and warm outside, and I will be the happiest camper (literally!) around on the way to green mountains first west, then north. I’m ready for some fresh air and a few s’mores (made with a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups), sipping coffee on quiet porches, a few Blue Benn breakfast times, and seeing some of my absolute favorite people.

The road always inspires me to write, and it is where I feel the most free and alive…especially when I’m en route to do something good like host Play It Forward, so I’m hoping to share a bunch of awesome things with you here over the next couple weeks. I hope you will share some of your adventures with me, too.

What inspires you to feel good and do good?

monday morning reminders in license plates

I seem to have a theme of pulling behind a lot of cars lately that have little pokes of inspiration. This one as I exited the highway after a long drive, headed to see a friend at the hospital. Perhaps even more appreciated than on any other day:

Live Love Laugh

Thanks, Mr. License Plate. I will. I promise. That’s what It’s all about.

How are you living, loving, and laughing today?

i’ve said it before and i’ll say it again; ILOVERMONT!

These cutesy articles about various states and kinds of people that live in them always crack me up. This one about my home state of Vermont, is pretty spot on. Numbers 4, 6 ,9, 11, and 14 describe me best/are my favorites. Boy do I miss those grinders from the Bennington Pizza House with that crispy, cold shredded iceberg lettuce that I would never otherwise eat.

Oh my beautiful little Green Mountain State and all the things that come with it! (Except the cold and snow- note my carefully planned visits always revolve around warm weather months.)

What happened on June, 26 1996? I graduated high school in the Green Mountain State. I think that’s the last time I ever saw a guy named Jake Hill until he popped up on my Facebook page a couple weeks ago with a “Saw this today, thought of you!”

Jake~

You are totally awesome…thanks! Love this. Hope life has been good to you since high school. Thanks for keeping an eye out for the Blue Lollipop Road!

Who else has got a picture for me?
