Hey guys, I am excited to announce that I have a NEW website!!!

Click one of these links below to check it out:

I have finally decided to create my own photography website and start putting action behind this dream of mine. I am so pumped to have a professional platform to work off now and I can't wait for what the future holds.

A big THANK YOU to all of those who have followed Trekkin' Through Life. I know it is mostly family and a few friends that check this blog out and I'm thankful for it all. This blog has been a fun way to share our adventures with you guys as well as document some of our memories. 

I plan to keep this blog up but from here on out I won't be updating it anymore. I have a blog on my NEW website Shot by JMG that I want to take full advantage of. If you have a minute please check it out and let me know what you think. 

Thanks again for letting me share parts of my life with you. If you wish to continue to follow what's going on with me, check out my NEW website. (I know, shameful plugging:)

And one last time,

Happy Trekkin'!

{Everyday Life} October 2015

One of my favorite poets.

This month has been nothing short of a whirl-wind of amazingness topped with rainbows, butterflies and sparkly things. But seriously, it has been incredible.

For the first part of the month I was traveling in Panama with a couple girlfriends, which was an epic adventure in itself. When I got back home it was back to work and back to the grind full throttle. With work, trail running (I'm training for my first mountain marathon race), fall cleaning, organizing, photo taking, getting ready for Heinz to come home (he'll be back in a couple day's!!!) and working on my photography website (hooray I'm finally doing it), you could say I've been keeping busy this month. 

I'm so thankful for the opportunities that I've been given to travel, work hard, and take chances on my dreams. I am one blessed women.

{PANAMA} Frog Beach & Saying Goodbye

October 8th:

My last full day in Panama was filled with mixed emotions. I was excited to check out new places but also feeling a bit home sick. We left our yellow house on the water in the morning and headed to Frog Beach where Amber was staying for the duration of her trip. We checked out the area, strolled down the beach, had a few margaritas, and reminisced about our trip together. As we said our goodbye’s to Amber, Jen and I took a boat back to Bocas so I could catch my flight to Panama City that evening and Jen could settle into her hostel as she was heading into Costa Rica the following day.

What an amazing trip with two really awesome women. Great travel buddies for sure. Thanks guys for the memories. Until next time…

And that's my Panama trip recap. Hope you enjoyed it.

Happy Trekkin'!
