I woke up numb yesterday. I think that was you. I think you knew I couldn't feel yesterday. I think you knew I wasn't ready.

As I lay in my hammock in the trees in your yard, that Pap planted with his own two hands. On the lot that he built this life with his own to hands. With every memory from Mardi Gras to Christmas that they built with their own two hands. None of us deserve this castle they built with their own to hands. So here we sit in an empty existence of what they built with their own two hands. I will miss you every minute of every day because y'all built me with y'alls own two hands.

The other night all the cousins were talking about things that will make us think of gram once she passes. We named a bunch of superficial things like pelicans, cranes, Mardi gras, and Mr. Bingle. But then I thought for a moment and had a realization. This beautiful woman has taught us everything from how to love and how to be strong to how to Mardi Gras like a pro. Every good memory I have she was a part of. She is the center of our family, the center of my universe. So I don't have to come up with any specific thing that will make me think of her once she goes, because everything will make me think of her, everyday. How could it not? She taught me how to live.

It's Ok To Go © Lori Daoust "You were sick and tired and we all knew,
that God would soon come to take you.
You fought so hard, so very long,
but through the pain, you stayed strong.

We all knew there would come a day,
when God would come to carry you away.
It doesn't make it easier to say goodbye,
and I try so hard not to cry.

I can't help but feel defeated,
or even maybe a little cheated.
But how very selfish would I be,
to hope and pray you could stay with me.

So as you laid there tubes running to and fro,
I had to tell you "It's ok to go".
Say "Hi" to loved ones waiting on the other side.
I know some day; you'll be there when I take that ride.

"And she taught me how to drive
And she raised the kids, then the kids' kids, and she did it right
Taught me how to love, taught me not to cry
When I die, I hope you teach me how to fly
All my life you've been that angel in disguise"

I read of a man who stood to speak at the funeral of a friend.

He referred to the dates on the tombstone from the beginning…to the end.

He noted that first came the date of birth and spoke of the following date with tears,
but he said what mattered most of all was the dash between those years.

For that dash represents all the time that they spent alive on earth.
And now only those who loved them know what that little line is worth.

For it matters not, how much we own, the cars…the house…the cash.
What matters is how we live and love and how we spend our dash.

So, think about this long and hard. Are there things you’d like to change?
For you never know how much time is left that can still be rearranged.

If we could just slow down enough to consider what’s true and real
and always try to understand the way other people feel.

And be less quick to anger and show appreciation more
and love the people in our lives like we’ve never loved before.
If we treat each other with respect and more often wear a smile,
remembering that this special dash might only last a little while.

So, when your eulogy is being read, with your life’s actions to rehash…
would you be proud of the things they say about how you spent YOUR dash?

Sometimes I think to myself how lucky am I? How lucky am I to have someone who makes me a better person in every way? How lucky am I to have a forever hiking buddy? How lucky am I to have you love me unconditionally? I'm lucky, I know that. But it doesn't take luck to live an adventurous lifestyle, that part takes guts! Love and guts... I guess that's what we are made of. 💚😘 @workcamperninja .

Name this trail!

Sure you've seen the flatirons, but have you ever seen the flatirons from inside an arch?

1300 ft. elevation gain in a mile and a half.... So straight up!

We've weathered so much together over the years. But I'll be honest, nothing tests a relationship quite like living in a 225 square foot camper. Despite the fact I can't avoid you when I'm mad at you, I wouldn't trade these moments for the world! 💚 😘 @workcamperninja 📷 by @thehikingmermaid

The sunrise at the Loch was the last bit of sun we saw, the last bit of color. But we trecked on, onto Lake of Glass, onto Sky Pond. This was the last bit of the Shark's Tooth that was visible once we got to the top. Within seconds of this photo all that was left visible was the frozen lake and a ton of snow. We hiked the whole way back down in the storm. We could have turned back at sunrise and got beautiful photos and never had to endure this weather. But from my experience, you never regret making it to the top! #moodygrams
