emandchloe Day 10: Get Creative! I thought I'd be posting a sneak preview of a few designs I've been working for Chris and @minnesnowtanice's wedding invitations today, however the universe decided to take us on a wee but of an adventure instead! After waking up, packing up camp and hiking out of grizzly country, we got back on the road. Before we realized it, we had driven a solid 45 miles in the wrong direction. Whoops! It always takes me a while to get back to driving speed, but today was a doosie! Instead of simply turning around, we decided to take a "short cut" through a state forest. With no cell service whatsoever we had to get creative using many different navigational tools including: a road atlas from 2004, a GPS, a compass app on the iPhone, ambiguous street "signs" made with paper plates and sharpies, and asking a man driving the biggest pickup truck I've ever seen, with a huge rifle propped next to him and a wad of tobacco chew for directions. (We certainly made him laugh, we were quite a sight to see!). We are now back on track, phew! We are a few hours behind schedule, but we saw some beautiful Montana countryside and a huge moose! @yoga_girl 17min

emandchloe "For each new morning with its light, for rest and shelter of the night, for health and food, for love and friends, for everything thy goodness sends." - Ralph Waldo Emerson. Day 7: Thank you. #yogagirlchallenge Loving today's challenge! All day I've been feeling deeply grateful for things big and small... To Mother Nature for the beautiful, diverse landscape I am so lucky to explore from the tiny snail we found hitchhiking on our tent, to the enormous mountains we are slowly approaching on our way to Glacier. For family and friends - I can think of more than 40 people near and dear to me that have made this 2 and a half week long road trip both possible and utterly and completely delightful. Let alone everyone ELSE in my life who I didn't get to on this trip! For yoga and meditation. For Chloe and Mallard, our hairy monsters who give endless love and enthusiasm daily. We miss you!! For mind, body and spirit. For the ups and especially for the downs that have taught me oh. So. Much! Thank you for each step that has shaped who I am today, and for each step to come to help me continue to grow! @yoga_girl this feels SO good, thank YOU for this challenge!!! 3d

emandchloe #yogagirlchallenge Day 6: Start a New Routine - A few months ago we got a juicer and I completely fell in love with it! I started juicing everyday, grabbing handfuls of veggies from the garden, creating delicious concoctions and I've never felt better! I've noticed a huge difference stepping away from this routine while on this looooong roadtrip! I cannot WAIT to get back to my juicer in only 6 days! For the rest of the trip I am sticking with daily yoga, quality time with my love, meditation, adventures, lots of water, time in nature and sleeping outside : ). Not too shabby! @yoga_girl 4d
  •   emandchloe Oh! I almost forgot! I've also been trying to read everyday too! 4d

emandchloe Day Four: Get rid of a bad habit. I work hard and I work often. I consistently go above and beyond what is expected of me. Professionally, this has many benefits. However, when the stress builds, the first things I let go of are self care and spending time with those I love, like this sweet beast of mine. My intention is to stop this bad habit of putting self care and care of my friends and family second to my career. @yoga_girl #yogagirlchallenge 5d

emandchloe I just had to #regram this picture for the #yogagirlchallenge Day 4: Random Act of Kindness as it is my favorite memory of paying it forward. My girl @bkalgren and I were on a cross country road trip. We had just driven 141 miles from Eugene, OR to Grants Pass,OR. We stopped to fill up on gas when I realized my wallet was not in the car. Eek! Knowing it was likely in the parking lot of a shell station in Eugene, where we bought ice to keep our Ninkasi beers cold... I decided to see if maybe, just maybe, it was in the back seat. Hopelessly, I rounded the car, only to find my wallet on the OUTSIDE of the car, resting nicely on the rear windshield wiper. Let me repeat that: on the outside of the car! 141 miles at 60mph driving through a terrible forest fire, and there it was! @bkalgren and I were (clearly) so shocked and elated that all we could do is squeal with excitement, snap this pic, and share the story with onlookers at the station. I was so beside myself, before I knew it I opened my wallet and handed all my cash to the man pumping my gas. He was shocked and tried to refuse the tip. All I could say was "Sir, I just had the best luck of my entire life. Please let me pay or forward!" We pulled away leaving him stunned, wad of cash in hand, with a big smile on his face. It was truly the best day ever. My luck was incredible, but better than than was the look on the face of that man in my rear view mirror. That I will always remember. @yoga_girl thanks for the chance to reminisce about this story and remember just how good random acts of kindness feel for all involved! 6d

emandchloe Day Four: Random Act of Kindness #yogagirlchallenge Paid it forward today by buying a cup of coffee for the next person in line. Look at how happy it made the person serving the coffee, just knowing she would be able to deliver the good news! It felt so good to do this! ]
@yoga_girl check out the dog pictures on the left. We've got to get @ringo_thegringo on there!)

emandchloe Woke up at first light, crawled out of my sleeping bag and rolled out my mat. Birds serenaded me and the fog rolled along the water and sat in stillness and saluted the sun. Feeling so grateful for this challenge and ready for today's road trip: Ohio to Minneapolis! Day 3: Rise and Shine @yoga_girl #yogagirlchallenge 1w

emandchloe Day 2: Meditate @yoga_girl #yogagirlchallenge "You should sit quietly for 20 minutes a day. Unless you are busy, then you should sit for an hour." -old Zen saying. Plenty of time to observe the mind on our road-trip from Vermont to California this week! We bid farewell to the Adirondacks this morning. Next stop: Lake Erie 1w
