Hi! I’m Kansas, welcome to my blog.

A few years ago, I was a homebody with a long list of places I wanted to go and changes I wanted to make.  I researched and planned everything I rarely followed through.

In 2014 I made a to-do list for the year and I finally started to check things off my list.  I continue to make a list every January and I have now been to Monticello, Winchester Mansion and San Diego.  I journal to be more mindful, I’m learning to meditate and do yoga.

“This is where you are” became my mantra to remind myself to live in the moment, no matter where I was or what I was doing.  I was a homebody with a to-do list who became a homebody checking things off my list.

I have not magically become a new person who is always going on adventures and living every moment being mindful but I’m working on it.  I will always be a homebody and I don’t plan on changing that, but I wasn’t meant to stay in one place.


I am not the first person who has decided to travel more and I’m certainly not the first person to put a little more effort to make changes but I hope you’ll join me on my journey and I hope wherever you are in travel, adventure, making changes, living in the moment or stepping out of your comfort zone you remind yourself “This is where you are.”
