Are you having a hard time looking for the perfect gift? Gift an adventure instead!

Every year it just seemed to harder to find the perfect gift for my family and friends. But I discovered something amazing along the way. I was looking for the WRONG gifts all along.

The gift-giving epiphany to share with you.

You've heard diamonds are a girl's best friend? Well, I never liked diamonds as much as turquoise so that never applied to me anyway. And as it turns out, I like rocks even better than turquoise. Yep, rock climbing is a passion of mine! So when I was gifted my first chance to rock climb at Enchanted Rock it was like a light came on for me. Instead of giving gifts, I returned the favor and started gifting adventures instead. Now the challenge is finding the most unique adventures I can find for family and friends in Texas. I'm going to give you a list of them to make your Christmas shopping a whole lot easier, and more meaningful.

Memories that LAST A LIFETIME! Check these out and I am just getting started!

One more thing... You can "dabble" in all kinds of classes with Dabble! Yep, wine tasting, perfume making, the works, but if you have something to teach, you can teach on DABBLE and we can all enjoy an experience.
