You’ll get to take a lot of stuff home with you–except for 6 oz. Chobani cartons, which you might have to watch being thrown into the trash can as a dramatic, slow motion ‘NOOOOOOO!’ scene runs through your mind–but all those protein powders and energy bars and coupons won’t mean nearly as much as the intangibles you’ll take away.
i set this up in a perfect IG square without even meaning to. we then decided i should keep it out for the rest of the evening so other people could photograph it as well.
Soreness from two days of GPP (General Physical Preparedness) Fitness Boot Camps–followed by a long day’s journey
Wisdom that stems from conversations that occur in your room late at night, or while hiking in the mountains, that might just lead to new insight: In life, as in hiking, you can fight the mud… …or you can embrace it. Why not embrace it?

(faux) ginger, (curly) ginger, (nerdy) ginger, (drinkable) ginger———————- Acceptance. Because no one will care that you are both a middle-aged woman…. …and a small child, trapped in the same body. Or that you are the type of person who not only lacks any fashion sense, but also thinks wearing heels--for once–will be a fun idea, then consequently wakes up in the middle of the night with calf cramps so bad you think you may never walk again. And no one will care that you like the idea of fun ginger mint drinks (made with Silk almond milk), but you’ll take two sips and declare that you’d rather be drinking Diet Coke. Or that you like to kiss cows in public. [I have now kissed a cow, ridden a rooster , and puckered up to a pig. What's next in the barnyard brigade? Hugging a horse?] ——————— Gratitude that women like Lindsay , Janetha , and Katie not only blog, but had the idea to bring us all together in this way, and are willing to put so much of their energy and their lives into making the weekend what it is. ——————– Awe that the world (or the heavens or the fates or your god) have a way of bringing you to the people you need, just when you need them. ————– And that, my more-than-blends, is (just some of) what you get when you go to Blend . Because even if you forget an extra suitcase, or refuse to pay to check a duffel, you’ll still be able to take away a whole lot of ‘swag’ that will never, ever fit in a bag.
