  • My complete South Dakota vlog is now live on my YouTube, TruthOrClaire! - https://youtu.be/rHRBtvXW1RM (Link also in bio)
.
Something cool happened during this trip: I GOT ACCEPTED INTO THE YOUTUBE PARTNER PROGRAM! 🎉
.
As a partner, I can make money from my videos! Creating videos has always been a fun hobby for me and a way to relive moments in my life, so it’s awesome to have this opportunity as an added benefit! Now if only I could figure out the incredibly confusing analytics so that I can take full advantage of these perks. 😅

A huge thank you to those of you who watch my videos and are subscribed! I appreciate the support so much! ☺️

  • Hard to believe this was six years years ago today. A lot has changed. •
•
It’s easy to forget how far I’ve come or how different my life is. I get so wrapped up in the day-to-day, sometimes I forget to take a step back and look at the big picture. This seems like forever ago, but sometimes I still feel like the same girl looking for the paths less traveled, curious about what’s around the next corner... just one more bend... but it’s never “just one more.”
•
This photo brings back a flood of memories and I remember exactly how I felt as this photo was taken. Care to take a stroll down memory lane with me? •
•
My cross country road trip was coming to an end. I was on the last 12 hours of my 45-day drive and was wrestling with decisions that would drastically change my life in very different ways — all of which exciting, but very different paths.
•
This moment was clarifying. I stepped out of the car and was so moved by the landscape. It was like no other landscape I had seen before. The canyons looked like those sand-dripped castles I made as a kid. You know, where you have wet sand in your hands and you drip bits on top of one another to see how high you can get it before the water comes rushing in to clear the canvas for a start-over...? That’s where this view took me. I felt myself breathe out the jumbled mess of decision processing and breathe in a feeling of calm as I sank into the grass. This is where I belonged... not forever, but for the moment. I could say it shaped the years of adventure to follow, but that would be a lie. It’s only one of the moments that shaped my adventuring soul. But this moment was defining what I seem to call “home.” •

  • We hit six weeks post partum yesterday! It’s a huge relief to have made it this far. We have a chunky, healthy babe that wakes up once in the night (last night she didn’t get up at all 🤞🏻), our marriage has survived the post-partum hormonal rollercoaster, and I can start running and lifting again. Life is good, ya’all. .

Yesterday we were driving back from house hunting in Pierre and we decided to check out the dam before we left. We stopped at the Oahe Dam and visitor center, and we found a lovely little place staffed by lovely, helpful, knowledgeable people. We also discovered this historical little chapel where I was able to take a quiet moment to rest and nurse. Aaron is a man of god and I’m a woman of science, but we were both able to absorb the beauty and resonance of this place. It made the move to Pierre seem less daunting and frightening, and for that I am grateful. .

A picture does not do this justice, it’s definitely a must see!
