I was looking for adventurous photos for today’s post, which left me lost in the land of tumblr for far too long. I found this photo though, and I couldn’t help but think it’s so wrong. It’s a great quote for the photo, but you have to remember that adventure is not out there. To me it is not in the abstract or the far away lands, but you can find adventure right here. I think that’s the point of UP, the movie from which this drawing is a representation, because once you got past the first page of the adventure book she detailed all their life adventures. The adventures that happened in their life just because they happened and they did them together. Every day can be a grand adventure.
I find that it’s important to remind ourselves of this from time to time especially as we travel our way through the blogosphere. I know that each weekend is an adventure of deciding what should be published to the blog this week. It’s an adventure to create the dishes and taste test them with Love. These are only some of the adventures we go on. We travel around the city trying to find tasty new treats, venture to the Famer’s Market in search of new ingredients, and most of all we just try to find cool new things to experience. We work to support each other in all our endeavors, and we work to find new and interesting ways to use our strengths and to provide strength to the others weakness.

To me the true adventure in life is just living it. It’s knowing that you never know what tomorrow will bring. Adventure isn’t just that time I bought my best friend and myself Flying Trapeze lessons. It’s the time that same best friend called me at 9PM to come out and join him at a bar to meet new friends. I’ve met some of the best friends of my life through him. Adventures are going to Starbucks on a bad date and meeting the people who will become your greatest support system. The people who will help you to move forward when things get tough by giving you some kind of snarky retort or a hug.
I’ll adventure this weekend by exploring Disneyland and seeing a new video game. This weekend will be spent making tutorials for the blog and new items for the shop. It will be spent spending time with friends new and old enjoying beers and laughs. These are truly the best adventures in life.
