One cannot collect all the beautiful shells on the beach. One can collect only a few, and they are more beautiful if they are few. Anne Morrow Lindbergh As I walked Glass Beach, a dream destination for beachcombers, this Anne Morrow Lindberg quote came to mind. This season of life is more about collecting memories than things. We said goodbye to our four-bedroom house five weeks ago. We are living in a 22-foot Winnebago. We have a minimal amount of belongings with us, and yet, the stuff feels too much most of the time. Why did we bring four dinner plates when we only need two? Why are there so many clothes in the closet when we wear the same things over and over again? Why do we have so much when we can happily get by on so little? Did I really think we would use the crockpot? As my desire for material things wanes, my hunger for more experiences grows. I want to see more beautiful places. Hike more challenging trails. Open myself to richer experiences and deeper connections. The bucket list isn't getting shorter with each park we visit and each fellow traveler we talk to, it's getting longer.

Chasing stars with my son, @davidshockey516 💫✨ There's something about the stillness of night, the vastness of the sky, the light of the moon and stars that makes these nights feel magical. I can feel the memories being made as the moments unfold. 🌟🌙 . . #lakeerie #nightsky #fairportharbor #stars
Oh my gosh, I was just a baby when I started working at @amgreetings! The year was 1994, my son was 3, and the writers used typewriters! This feels like yesterday and a lifetime ago. A lot has changed since then, but I still love writing greeting cards.💻📝🖊 . . #throwbackthursday #greetingcardwriter @amgreetings #24years #greetingcards #lovemyjob #mostdays
