🧘♀️Wellness Wednesday. Take care of YOU... body, mind and spirit.
It’s not about being perfect, but being better.
Make healthier choices, and fuel your body with premium nutrition. I choose the #thriveexperience because it fits my lifestyle. Find what works for you. Enjoy the 🍕 once in a while. All things in moderation, right?
How do you start your day? Make sure it’s something positive. Try meditation, reading, maybe it’s music.
Kerid crater lake is a 3,000 year old volcanic crater lake in South Iceland. The actual lake itself is relatively shallow, between 7 and 14 metres, depending on rainfall and other factors, but as a result of minerals from the surrounding soil, the water is a unique and strikingly vivid aquamarine shade of blue.
More teaser pics from today. I'll post them all whenbI come back. For those of you that have been to #iceland you've probably been here. #gulfoss and #geyser TIL that geyser is an Icelandic word! A little windy today but fun nonetheless. Wait till you see the rest of the pics and videos! #keridcrater
Had to leave the cars in for size reference ;). Iceland was amazing! ❤️🇮🇸❤️

Day 2 in Iceland!
We decided to wander in to town after breakfast and found we were just in time for the Reykjavik Pride Parade! And what a parade it was 😍💕
Continuing through town we saw Hallgrimskirkja (tall church - more pics to follow) and went inside to find it decorated for pride! Even the Harpa Concet Hall had pride flags up!
We left town to drive the 300km Golden Circle which visits þingvellir (Thingvellir) National Park where you can walk between two continental plates, geysers named Strokkur and Geysir, the amazing Gullfoss Falls, and finally the Kerid Crater (formed years ago by volcanic activity).
Whew, what a day! 💕
More #Iceland#adventureswithkids , sorry but it was absolutely incredible. If you want the best tomato soup you've ever had IN YOUR LIFE, you need to head to #fridheimargreenhouse . I need to get some shipped home because nothing I make will ever compare.
We debated going to #reynisfjarabeach and only decided to head onto the beach because the tide was out. Please please please be careful on this beach: Reynisfjara is beautiful but extremely dangerous due to their waves. Do not go near the water. #reykjadalurhotsprings was one hell of a #hike . It's long and it's almost entirely uphill, but it was, hands down, one of our favorite experiences. Oldest didn't complain on the hike up because he knew what lay at the end for us, but none of us could have imagined the hot spring would be as wonderful as it was. Definitely worth the trek!
If you are heading to Iceland, especially with kids, check out #dogsledding ! Oldest giggled the entire time, especially when we had to stop for dogs to poop! And while I expected #keridcrater to be nothing more than a picture stop, the boys loved it so much they first walked around the edge, then trekked into the crater to walk around the lake. This was one of their favorite stops, and I enjoyed sitting on a rock above them, watching them chatting with their daddy and loving their exploration!
Mark and i just returned from a vacation to Iceland that we will never forget. It started out as a surprise long weekend from Mark to go see Ed Sheeran in concert, but we had to add a few extra days to take in all the breathtaking sites. We climbed waterfalls, volcanoes, watched geysers, lava fields, dipped in hot springs, hiked and climbed glaciers, saw trolls, and finished with the concert at Iceland’s national football stadium.
She liked the moon 🌙 because, like herself, it shines its brightest when no one was around to see ✨
