ADVENTURES

When I moved back to Portland in 2011 to start my business, I knew I was taking a huge risk! I had left my job and was literally starting over. At that point in my life I figured, what do I have to lose? For the first time in my life I felt focused and new exactly what I wanted. I’m not saying it wasn’t scary (terrifying actually), but I looked at it as an “Adventure,” and since then it has truly helped me face my fears of trying new things.

LOCAL FUN:

SNOWSHOEING @ TRILLIUM LAKE: If you enjoy snowshoeing you have to check out Trillium Lake. The trails are awesome and the view is gorgeous.

AERIAL & TRAPEZE CLASSESThis is something I’ve always wanted to try. It not only looks physically challenging but mentally challenging as well. I came across a Living Social deal for a 2 hour intro and 3 one hour drop-in classes at A-Wol Dance. So I bought 2 deals and signed up Noelle and I.  So far it’s been awesome! We get to swing around and hang upside down on the trapeze. We’ve been taught how to use the silks and safely climb our way to the top as well as other cool tricks and flips.
