“Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.” | Robert Brault
Introducing a new series to the Anchored Adventure Blog … the Sunday Scribbles! It’s a weekly post sharing an excerpt from my travel journal.
I am a big believer in journaling. Not only is it therapeutic, but [ in my opinion ] it is the best way to remember how you felt in a moment – documenting your experiences, the people you meet and the activities you do.
I never thought I’d share my journal with anyone. I have a vision of my [ future ] kids finding it in 50 years and wondering what the heck was going through their mother’s mind. But I recently had a change of heart, as I think a few parts of it shed light into how life-changing travel can be. I want to share it with you – my raw, unedited, in-the-moment writing.
If you haven’t journaled in a while [ or even if you’ve never ], I encourage you to join me. Ease into it. Perhaps write a few paragraphs each Sunday [ like the Sunday Scribbles Series! ]. And of course, share your thoughts in the comment section below. I’d love to hear from you.

“Drinks at Confessional topped off an awesome weekend! The speakeasy cocktail lounge was built below ground under the arches that hold up the city. The bar theme encourages confessions – oh so shameful. It actually sparked a cool, authentic conversation with Ally [ my travel buddy ]. It made me reflect on what my confessions would be. There are certainly some I am not proud of.
But you know what I am proud of? I am living an awesome life. I have a stronger-than-ever relationship with my family, a man I love so deeply [ who loves me and treats me so well ], the most genuine friendships, a good head on my shoulders, a curious mind, a passion for exploring the world and experiencing cultures different than my own and the maturity to recognize that I am extremely blessed.
Thankful for these two days in Bath – may everyone get to opportunity to experience this beautiful city – both inside and out!”
