 Snowy November day in Banff

Snowy November day in Banff

Is my house in desperate need of a deep clean? You bet your boots it does. Do I need a day of relaxation? Yes, please. Is it crazy to drive to Alberta for only a few hours? Absolutely; but in my short little life, however, I have learned that those things do not matter near as much as we think they do.

My house is an absolute disaster. I'm exhausted from working way more than I anticipated; but in two years in not going to remember that time I stayed home and cleaned my house and laid in bed a little longer. I am going to remember that crazy night we left home at 10pm and drove 9 hours to Alberta, to see Lake Louise, Banff and give our dog her first snow experience.

In life we get so caught up on being ahead and organized. We want our lives to look perfect but we also miss out on opportunity when we don't take the chance to do something wild (or stupid, depends how you view it).

We ordered a pizza and set out on an adventure full of laughs, memories and amazing scenery. I don't ever regret the crazy decisions we make in life. As long as we are making memories in the process. That's what is important. Life is short, ditch the mop and do something crazy.
