A recipe for healthier ginger molasses cookies, made with unrefined coconut sugar, light on the butter and a zesty spice mix. Sub gluten-free flour for a gluten-free alternative or keep regular for an equally delicious cookie recipe.
But let’s be honest, you probably didn’t notice. There was a time in my life when I genuinely believed that if I took one day off from blogging, you would all forget THM existed. Luckily I got over that fear and taking a break from blogging is not the challenge it used to be.
I’m grateful that I’ve learned to relax and not let this whole blogging gig take over my life, but then a 5 day break turns into a 10 days break, turns into a 2 week break and suddenly your motivation to show up seems non-existent.
Hello from beautiful California! I started this post last July on our way home from our road trip through Maine. I continued working on it as we made our way from Minneapolis through South Dakota and am finishing it up as we drive from Utah to California. So let’s just say I have a few thousand miles of road tripping under my belt. Enough that I can pretty confidently tell you how to actually survive a road trip.
And well, this statement is all the more true after our most recent experience near Badlands National Park. If you follow me on Instagram, you know that on day one of our road trip from Minneapolis to California, we hit a massive buck just outside Badlands and completely totalled our car. Yes, our new car, on day ONE of our trip. Fortunately, everyone was okay and 12 hours later we were back on the road continuing our adventure. More on that debacle soon.
Though I don’t know that that these tips are we led to us literally surviving that crash, I do know that without them I’m not sure we would have been able to tolerate the hundreds of hours we’ve spent sitting in a car along our many adventures. But as the sun set over the Utah red rocks and C and I found ourselves laughing hysterically over terrible baby names instead of wanting to tear our hair out, I knew that we really have mastered this whole road trip game. So finally I found the inspiration to finish this post and I’m hopeful that these tips on how to actually survive a road trip are as helpful for you as they’ve been for me.
