Meramec State Park Canoe Trip

I'm catching up on my blog posts and I'm super excited to share the experience I had on the Meramec River with my mom and dogs. Meramec Caverns are approximately an hour outside of St. Louis, MO, and was the location where we reserved our canoe. There were also options to kayak or raft, but with two dogs, we opted for the more reliable of the three choices! We were dropped off at Meramec State Park and finished the trip back at the Meramec Caverns.

Merrell: Meet the 2017 College Ambassadors

Merrell is an outdoor brand that specializes in hiking shoes and clothing. As a Merrell College Ambassador, I get to lead amazing trips with the Outdoor Adventure Club through the generous grant provided by Merrell and Outdoor Foundation. Some of the trips include camping and hiking at local and state parks, ice skating, horseback riding and 5K runs. I love being an ambassador and am continuously inspired by my fellow colleagues! My only qualm is that we all live so far apart :) Be sure to check out their breathtaking Instagram feeds for some serious outdoor envy!

Uplifting Quotes for Lent


Every year for Lent, I think of something to give up. In the past, I've given up chocolate, shopping, eating out (coffee is out of the question) and I usually don't to a stellar job. This year I decided I wanted to DO something. I want to spread joy and make it as easy on you to do something positive during lent. Each day I will send out an uplifting bible quote straight to your inbox. It will be short, sweet, and to the point with no personal side commentary. Let each quote inspire you to do good.
