THOUGHTS: Taking Stock

I've been on a bit of a personal adventure lately.  I'm really trying to improve myself, and lead a healthy, happy + active lifestyle.   Let's face it, we've got to stop living like we're students at some point.

The photo below is from a trip to Portugal with Pedro.  I remember that summer.  I moved home to live with my parents, and worked really hard, every day, to be able to go on that trip.  I'm in a similar situation now (minus the living with my folks), but I'm excited for new adventures.

I was feeling kind of reflective today, when I saw Whitney's post on Whit B. Nimble.  She's just lovely.  I love reading about her adventures.  Anyways, she posted a little list of questions called "Taking Stock" - and I wanted to join in on the fun.  If you want to fill it out too, I'd love to see your answers.
