Self Accountability

"There is no happiness without self-accountability" - Liz Gilbert.

I've been letting that one marinate for a few months.  The truth of the statement only seems to grow with time.   Not only is there no happiness, there's no growth, no change, no forward movement without honest self-accountability.   This statement is NOT expecting perfection.  It's just reinforcing the need to reflect and hold yourself responsible for the energy you bring to your life.

Polar Caves

Though a born New Englander, it's exciting to me that there remains so much of the place we call home that I have never experienced.  Looking for something that would appeal to all - two adults, a teenager, and a toddler and oversleeping the cut-off for the beach, we headed to the Polar Caves in NH - about 90 minutes north.

A really cool day was had by all!   The caves held everyone's attention and definitely presented a level of difficulty harder than I imagined.   We found our way through the 9 caves - Fat Man's Misery, King Tut's Tomb, The Lemon Squeeze - even J tagged along.  At the top, are some stunning views.

It was a day trip I'd highly recommend and fun for all ages (no kids required!).
