“Foods that Boost Your Mood”

I was sitting at a coffee shop with a girlfriend recently after a particularly taxing workout class, and she said: “You know, I think you should write about foods that people should eat when they’re going through a breakup. Because all I want to do is drink this Chai latte all day but I know that’s probably not the best idea.” It dawned on me that a lot of people […]

“Exclusive Pre-Order of My New Book: MODERN PIONEERING”

I read a quote somewhere recently that said: “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone. Climb mountains not so the world can see you, but so you can see the world.” That’s how I have always tried to live my life and somehow I’ve been blessed enough to make it my vocation. It has been my distinct goal to be more fearless, do things that scare me, and […]

It’s Friday! Are you screaming it from the rooftops? Here are some fancy things that have caught our eye in Georgia Land all across the Interwebs this week… a little Friday inspiration as we start to make our holiday lists: After spending a long day outdoors, I want nothing more than a seriously heavy-duty shower session to wash all the adventure away.

“My Favorite Holiday Recipes”

I am just now starting to think about holiday food. Perhaps because this is the first day that is has felt truly cold in Austin. My favorites are always the ones that I have made memories around, those nostalgic moments, aromas and people that the dishes will always and forever be associated with. We all have those dishes, don’t we? These are some of my favorites that I’ve created in […]

“10 Things for Women to Wear in the Outdoors”

Ladies, I’m sure we can all agree that the quality of clothing available for women to wear in the outdoors is seriously lame. At least the stuff they call “hunting” clothing. It is usually men’s clothing scaled down in size. I pretty much never wear it. It steals my joy. So what I’ve learned to do is mix it up and find things from mostly non-hunting retailers. As long as […]
