Three Peaks and a Valley #5

This series, Three Peaks and a Valley refers to three positive moments and one negative moment that happens during a twenty-four hour period of my life. When I’m feeling down, my mom tells me to remember one positive and one negative thing about the experience: a peak and a valley.

Three Peaks and a Valley aims to outweigh the negative with the positive.

Three Peaks and a Valley is a regular miniseries that, by sharing my own moments of joy and vulnerability I hope that you’ll think about your own.

PEAK: I felt comfortable enough with my body and with my tattoos to wear a bikini on the boat ride today, even though several of them do not approve of tattoos.

PEAK: I took a walk with my sister and cousin down a dirt road to the Bomoseen State Park. Along the way, my sister Alexa half sang, half screeched Beyonce’s “The Best Thing I Never Had“. She did nail a few high notes though.

“What line did you nail, Alexa?” I shout across the kitchen.

“I don’t know, all of them?” she shoots back.

PEAK: My boyfriend’s family installed a deck in their backyard exclusively for the purpose of installing an above ground dog pool. Look at this. Just look at this. Just look.


“Where has this been all my life?”


VALLEY: I had a three-hour car ride from Vermont to Massachusetts today stuffed like a sardine in the backseat with a big wet dog. Both I and the dog were mighty carsick.

Working on my summer body. It’s the same as my regular body but this one has more popsicles in it.

    PEAK: Life, love and the liberty to discuss all of it this morning over coffee.
    Valley:…hasn’t happened yet…or perhaps the part during the discussion that made me go, “huh…that’s something to think about.
