There is one constant lesson that I continue to learn the older I get - and that is life is full of endless adventures! My friend Chris and I have always had a sense of adventure and a love of anything outdoors, two things that seem to go hand in hand. As I shared my experience of writing my blog Our Southern Style with Chris and as we've gone hiking, fishing, camping, and kayaking together, the idea that maybe there was an even bigger adventure out there came to us both. Within a moment of talking over coffee, Gone Girls Adventures was born! The thing about Chris and I is, we're not what you would call "experienced" outdoors-men (err - I guess that would make us "outdoors-women") but we've never let that stop us from trying to encounter everything this wonderful world has to offer. We are Moms, (Chris is also a "MiMi!), wives, we work outside of our homes, our families are small business owners. We're just like you! We want to inspire other women, couples, and families to get out there, take a risk, through caution and experience to the wind and grab adventure by the horns! Climb a mountain, camp out under the stars, go white water rafting! Chris and I want to invite you to come along with us on our adventures as we set out to prove, you don't need to have experience - you just need to be willing to go!

This post was sponsored by Nature Made as a part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. All opinions are my own.
As a working Mom of four adventurous children, I don't always have as much time for myself as I would like. There's not time to hit the gym every day, and sometimes, as much as I don't want to, I have to eat a quick meal on the go. I want to be the very best version of me possible, not just for myself, but for my family. My children count on me to be there for them each and every day. I don't want a lack of energy or wellness to be the reason why I miss out on activities with my kids - it's one of the biggest reasons why I've made Nature Made a part of my daily lifestyle routine.

Remember that favorite sweatshirt you had in college? I remember mine very clearly! It was a red hoodie that had "Minnesota" in big white letters across the front. It was so comfortable and so warm that I tried hard not to wear it in a daily basis. I loved it so much that when I was in a sledding accident and taken by ambulance during my Junior year, I forbid the ER doctors to cut it off my body (they probably shouldn't have listened - I had a really bad concussion)! All I know is, nothing compared to the level of comfort that sweatshirt brought me, nothing that is, until I slipped into the French Terry Short Robe from Berkshire Blanket, who sent me the item pictured above,at no cost, to facilitate this review. I lost my old sweatshirt sometime ago, but lucky for me, I found the perfect replacement!

Get ready to be introduced to the last jacket you'll ever need! My eyes were first captured by how striking and contemporary these coats where. As soon as I put my commuter jacket on however, I quickly fell in love with the overwhelming level of comfort, functionality, and the way this jacket out-performs all of the other coats I own. Mia Melon, who sent me the commuter jacket pictured above, at no cost to facilitate this review, is on the cutting edge of waterproof outerwear apparel, and I'd say, along with keeping me dry, this coat also propels me forward in the fashion world. There's no doubt about it - I'm a Mia Melon fan!
