Welcome to fifty and FIERCE!  As a rookie at this whole “50” thing, I’m discovering that my priorities have both condensed and congealed; condensed down to the things that are most important to me, and congealed into a more solid, less fuzzy list.  In other words, I want to focus my time and energy on doing things that fire me up, as I reach a deeper understanding of who I am.  These things I’m referring to are really a collection of experiences around what I enjoy: art, nature, dogs, travel, family, friends.  As a brand-new quinquagenarian (I had to look that up) I made a plan to make sure I keep sight of this and to hold me accountable.  That plan is what this blog is about.

Every week, I will be sending myself on an adventure.  It may be big, it may be small, it may be expensive or free, easy or tricky, dog-friendly or no, awe-inspiring or simple.  But an adventure it will be. I want to share these adventures with you, here, and if any of this inspires you to work in some of your own adventures I’d love to hear about it!  I also welcome any and all ideas you may have for me to try… I’ve created a starter LIST of possibilities which I’ll choose from as I go.

I’ll keep a calendar HERE so you can see what I’ve done and what’s coming up.  I love to take photos and will include them with each post. 

So Cheers!  To turning 50 and to making the most of this time we have here in this beautiful place we call home!
