I, Audrey Payne, got up early to exercise today! As in, I left my nice, warm, cozy bed (that I love SO MUCH), to sweat through my clothes and get yelled at by the fitness industry’s biggest angel, Shaun T. Five years after my last go-around (which I started at this same time of theContinue reading “My Return to Insanity (the Good Kind)”

Snowy Adventures and My Secret Spot
It’s a brand new year folks (where does the time go?!) and so far, 2017 is going swimmingly! (Again, I know there are plenty of valid fears and disappointments out there over the state of politics and our world today, but I’m keen to keep this blog about positivity and finding happiness so am goingContinue reading “Snowy Adventures and My Secret Spot”
It’s About That Time Again
You guys, this year absolutely FLEW by! Where did the time go?! 2016, though perhaps politically quite terrible (which I will not get into in this blog post because this is a predominantly positive space and goodness knows what we have in store for us), was personally pretty amazing for me. But it felt likeContinue reading “It’s About That Time Again”
Welcome (Back) to the Jungle
Friends, I feel it’s only fair to warn you in advance: this (extra-long) post will probably make you want to immediately shell out your hard-earned money for a one-way ticket to Southeast Asia. And I wouldn’t be able to blame you one bit if you did! I spent the last two weeks in Thailand gettingContinue reading “Welcome (Back) to the Jungle”
Mountains and Tall Trees and Bear Tracks, Oh My!
The Payne family is an outdoorsy people. I grew up in the country, in a house with a giant yard surrounded by woods, reading Ranger Rick magazine. I couldn’t see our nearest neighbor’s houses through the trees and there were no sidewalks for miles. My favorite hiking spot was (and probably still is) directly behindContinue reading “Mountains and Tall Trees and Bear Tracks, Oh My!”
Will You Accept This Rose?
You guys, it has been a fucking busy spring and summer. I have barely had enough time to breathe, let alone write! But I have been missing it, and all of you wonderful people who follow my adventures. Summer is my very favorite time of the year by far, but man, I do feel likeContinue reading “Will You Accept This Rose?”
The Wild, Wild West
I realize I’ve gotten quite far behind in my blogging. And so many exciting things have happened in the past few weeks that I should have been writing about! But alas, life has gotten in the way. I’ve been too busy living life to write about it! But here I am, back at it onceContinue reading “The Wild, Wild West”
A New Kind of Journey
“Saraswati, Senior Dharma Yoga instructor will bathe students in sound healing on the deepest levels while laying in Shavasana to the sound of the Crystal Alchemy Bowls & Gongs.” This was the description of the “sound journey” that I went to at my yoga studio a couple of weeks ago. I know, I know, itContinue reading “A New Kind of Journey”
Full Steam Ahead
Now, I know that many of you are probably not resolutions people, especially at this time of the year, when your New Year’s resolutions may or may not have fallen by the wayside. Personally though, I love them! I like having goals to achieve and I think they keep me from getting too complacent. Yes,Continue reading “Full Steam Ahead”
Goodwill to the People!
I was always a little bit of a quirky kid. I read a lot (I always got wayyyyy more stars on the school reading board than my peers, which I have my (bookworm) aunt Jenny to thank for – she was a big reading influence in my life), couldn’t get enough goofy camp songs andContinue reading “Goodwill to the People!”
