Grandad Bluff ➳ Wisconsin

The Grandad Bluff Adventure!

Last time I was here, I think I was 10 years old, so I was very excited to go back for a visit. This bluff has tons of trails for hiking, though we really didn’t “hike”. There is a parking lot at the top, so you just drive to it.

 

There are tons of things to read about the history, and there are views from so many different points. Wildflowers and tall grass litter the hills that make up the bluff. There is a short, paved walk that takes you out a bit from the main spot, and there is a small trail that brings you out to a cliff that parallels that – except there is no railing.

 

It was so freeing to be out there with no fence; no barrier to keep me from falling off the edge. The view is an amazing look over La Crosse, WI with Minnesota and Iowa in the horizon – I didn’t want to leave!

 

We snapped a few fun pictures, enjoyed the warmth of the sun, and the fresh air being carried by the breeze. It was beautiful.

  • My dad left a bag of my grandmothers post cards from people over the last 40 years on the table this morning. I spent about an hour going through them and trying to read them. It was fascinating! Stamps from other countries, 1 cent, 20 cents, the Great Wall of China, the beautiful Amalfi coast. So so so cool.
  • Being chronically ill doesn’t make you a “burden”.
You’re not some unfortunate thing that happened. You’re not “less than”, an “inconvenience”, or “annoying”. You’re not your illness. 
What you ARE, is:
* Every bit as much a person as anyone else.
* A complete and total BADASS for handling the cards you’ve been dealt ON TOP of doing life just like everyone else.
* Deserving of a person that’s understanding, supportive, and doesn’t make you feel GUILTY for things that are beyond your control. 
And I hate that this is something I have to constantly remind myself of.

  • I am feeling SO good today! 👏🏼 I’ve been thinking a lot lately about why I feel the way I do at this point in my life and I’m learning. I’ve said it a million times & I’ll say it again for good measure: the relationship you have with yourself is so. important. Nourish it, feed it, watch it blossom. And youll surprise yourself when the time comes that the universe tests your strength. #reallifeis #yearofyou #selflovesoldier
  • Last night I fought consciousness HARDDDD- but still managed to fall asleep before 3am. 🎉 and I got up early, grabbed coffee with a friend, and came home to have a productive afternoon of catching up on work. I might pop on my stories for a little bit to word vomit some more but we’ll see. 🙄 #happythursday #reallifeis
