If you told me 2.5 years ago that i would be climbing in a bikini outside and then jumping from the rock into a lake - i wouldn’t have believed you. my level of self worth then was nil. i would never wear a bikini in public. i didn’t think i was cool enough to go rock climbing. i would be too scared to jump in the lake. my anxiety and depression told me that i wasn’t that type of person to do that. i wasn’t outdoorsy enough. i wasn’t brave enough. something could go wrong. it wasn’t worth it. i wasn’t worth it. i have come a long way since then. it feels really good to not worry that entire day about what i look like or if i’m good enough to be doing what i’m doing. i breathed. i went outside my limit. and i had fun. this is me.
How does your family save money? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
a few things that work for us: •we buy just about everything second hand (affordable and good for the environment 🙌🏼). •cade and i share a car (and have for almost 10 years). •we cook 99% of our meals from scratch! the summer days in the desert are long, and cooking is a fun way to fill up time while creating a learning experience for my kids multiple times a day!
so tell me your family’s favorites money saving hacks! 👂👂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You know you’ve spent a lot of time in the mountains when you are napping at home and keep waking up in a panic because you need to descend the mountain before the snow bridges over the crevasses get too soft. 😂 lol
