Every Tuesday morning for the last year or so my friends & I try to do something "special" just for ourselves.
We call it "JEDVenture Tuesday"...it's a combination of our names of Julie Tapp, Elaine Martino & Dawn McCarty added on to the word - adventure.
We are busy mothers with to a total of 9 kids! We enjoy volunteer efforts, family obligations and as many moms do we can let our adventurous selves fall to the wayside.
Each week we rotate a hike, power walk, stair repeats, etc at different locations, trying out new places in as much time as we can squeeze in for ourselves.
Our lives have taken us, collectively to the Peace Corp, college/grad school, living in various states & countries. We've lost close relatives too soon to cancer & we found each other here in SoCal in suburban bliss where we are resetting our adventurous sides one Tuesday at a time!
Next up is kayaking or stand-up paddle boarding right here in John Wayne's backyard-The Back Bay!!
