Housecleaning or Hiking? Hmmm…

“You sometimes see a woman who would have made a Joan of Arc in another century and climate, threshing herself to pieces over all the mean worry of housekeeping.” ~Rudyard Kipling

I briefly considered performing mundane tasks today, such as housecleaning (hate it), but the weather is too beautiful to contemplate such tiresome ventures. It’s Sunday, sunny and not overbearingly hot, so I’ve decided to head up to Raven Cliff Falls in the Chattahoochee National Forest for a little light hiking with my husband instead.

This adventure serves a two-fold purpose: I’ll be working to unravel the “Fat Girl Conspiracy” and I’ll satisfy the craving for photographic intervention. The last few weeks have been all about acclimating to Ivy’s school routine, so there hasn’t been time for adventures. I haven’t touched my camera much in three weeks, so today is the day.

After all, the unbearable mounds of laundry appeal to me far less than the breathtaking views I’m sure to find hiking at Raven Cliff Falls, and the bathtub ring can certainly wait That’s what showers are for…right?

Enjoy a throwback from my trip to San Francisco in 2004 during the pre-baby era of my life. I still love a great adventure, but now I tailor them to be more family-friendly. Unless I enjoy the rare opportunity to travel with only my husband or friends, my daughter is very much included. I’d love for my blog to be a point of reference for travels in Georgia and other destinations that provide a benefit and service to married couples with kids and singles alike. My future vision–to become deeply entrenched in the travel arena–drives my present evolution, and I’m constantly exploring different angles to pursue.

During the next year, I’ll be sharing more of my travels, but I plan to include events and travel news that provide a more intimate glimpse of the mystery and appeal of my beloved state.

I’d hate for you to miss out on that, so I recommend subscribing to this blog via email or through the available RSS options. I’d be most appreciative and inspired to work even harder to bring you great photos and content. It only takes a moment. Oh, and if you have great travels to share, leave a comment on this post, and I’ll respond accordingly.


  1. I hope you enjoy your hike! I always say that I LOVE having a clean house, I just hate cleaning it. HA! No hiking opportunities here (unless you count corn fields or the stair master at the gym) so I think I will resort to cleaning today 🙂 Enjoy your Sunday!

  2. I hope your hike was great. I'm jealous. I cleaned all day.

Your turn!
