Over the last few weeks, I’ve had cabin fever. We've been home bound because of the holidays and the dreadful weather. I love my routine at home. However, if I do the same thing everyday my writing and photography start to stagnate. To avoid this, I take frequent mini-adventures. Typically, my little adventures consist of exploring different cities or seeing something new in my hometown. Exposing myself to new experiences leaves me feeling refreshed, renewed, and inspired to pursue creative projects.
Last weekend, we took a spontaneous afternoon trip to Ashland, Oregon. We spent the afternoon exploring Lithia Park and downtown Ashland and had an amazing lunch at Sesame Asian Kitchen. I had a delicious pad thai, with duck, and a coconut thai ice tea. It was mouth-watering! After lunch, we walked around downtown and took lots photos! It was so fun! And I finally purchased some beautiful stationary for my letter writing habit.
Ashland is only a 45-minute drive from the ranch and I’m looking forward to going on lots of mini-adventures in Southern Oregon this year. Did you go on any fun adventures this weekend and have you planned any for 2013? Share your story in the comments section.
