This post was started a year ago, and I’m just now getting to the point of finishing it..so enjoy..with all of it’s history.
Since my comeback of a new name has now “aired”…I figured I’d let y’all see what adventure has been on my mind lately. Spring break was this past week, and I chose to stay in my small town. It was worth it, absolutely, but thankfully for a day, I was able to get away. My friend, Maria (Little Bright Things) and I took a day trip to New Bern, NC. Easily my new favorite getaway.
The sun was out, the sky was blue and all in all it was a day of perfection. We spent the day wandering around the town, visiting the shops downtown, spending some time on the waterfront dipping our toes in of course, and enjoyed some of the food in a couple of different cafes.
I must say, that trip was well worth it. We spent very little money and had an entire day of fun filled adventure. For me, it was peaceful to not have to be somewhere. It was nice to get away and to find somewhere new to explore and to not have to worry about any responsibilities for the day.
We met all kinds of dogs, and people, including a musician playing on the corner! The entire day was just a peaceful blur, one I’m hoping to repeat in the not too distance future.
Adventure is something that I learned in 2015, to be unbelievably important to me. I believe it to be a tool for growth, knowledge, and wisdom. Going out and doing something new, being someplace new, and experiencing a new memory are all things that I believe grow an individual. That is the biggest reason I chose to rename/rebrand my blog to A Darling Adventure. This trip was one of the first memorable trips I took in 2015 and it was what essentially brought about the inspiration for the change. My apologies friends for taking me so long to address the new name. But I hope you love it as much as I do and I hope that it inspires you to be an adventurer!
