The Weekly Adventure: #AdventureLives

My Gram was an amazing woman and a perfect grandmother. I know many of you think the same about your grandparents, and I know some of you wish you shared my enthusiasm regarding your own family. My story may be much like many others you have already heard before, but to me they are special. Isn’t that magical?

My Gram’s name was Judy. She had many admirable traits, and many frustrating ones. I didn’t see much of either of those sides until I was older. When I was younger I simply saw her as “Grandmother Willow”. Willow was not her name. Willow was her adventure name. When Grandmother Willow babysat we made memories. I began to thirst for adventure at a very young age. That thirst has not faded since her passing — actually, it’s grown. Adventures with Grandma Willow very rarely involved money, and always involved a smile, a “memory camera”, and a large imagination.

So, in her honor, I live my life in search of adventure. I must confess that I have yet to reach the Willow level. I believe she would be proud of me just because I searched, though. Even more so for creating my own adventures. My favorite adventure to date (post-Willow), involved a world-wide invitation to my virtual toga party. My then 2 year-old daughter was among those in attendance. Her physical presence was in the eyeglass store. My in-laws participated from home, and my parents checked in via camp ground. Even the dog dressed up. (I am immensely blessed to have a fun family.)

 

Some of my favorite adventures in life have been unexpected and unplanned, but I know how much my Gram put into planning my adventures. I would like to give my daughter that same experience. The adventures I share here with you each week will be new. They will likely be split between planned and unplanned. They will have pictures (if possible). They will be magnificent.

I’d love your help planning my next adventure.

Even more, I’d love your participation in one of our adventures! If you see something that inspires you, then please be inspired! Repeat my actions, or act on your own. If you have a blog, then write about it. If you don’t, then post in the comments, Tweet about it, or post about it elsewhere. Let’s show the world that advent is still out there.

(P.S., for the purposes of easy locating, lets use a hashtag, shall we? How about #TheWeeklyAdventure, &/or #AdventureLives)

 

I’ll see you all out on the trail!

Author:

My name is Chelsea (LaLa) Moore. As a writer, I also go by Cecelia Bold. In 2016 I earned a bachelor of arts in creative writing from Wichita State University -- i also minored in communications. I have multiple writing projects started, but hope to finish my first novel (When Stars Fall) in 2017. In the mean time I blog about life, depression, writing, and adventure. This blog is an opportunity for me to expand my writing capabilities and connect with other readers and writers. I look forward to discussing literature and life with each of you. Outside of writing, I am a mother to a brilliant and exciting little girl. I have two fur puppies (baghuerra the panther kitty, and Charlie the Australian Shepherd). I have been married to my high school sweetheart for for 8 years now. If you're trying to do the math, that puts me in my mid-twenties. In the near future my most intimate plans are to continue in the pursuit of knowledge in any way I can, to travel the world, and to inspire a little girl to chase adventure. Maybe buy a new house and publish a book if I have time. See you on the road there.

Tell me something Good!
