This summer has been a busy one! We’ve had lots on our to do lists, been trying to get out as much as possible, and took our little buddy to the beach for the first time! It was so fun to take him to the water and see him explore in the sand (and eat it.) It was a refreshing change of scenery for us since we don’t adventure off to the beach often, we are usually roaming around the desert without much water in sight.

Between our beach trip, and camping trips and everything else we have going on, we’ve been stopping by some local Farmer’s Markets to sell our jewelry. What started out as a little hobby has actually turned into a fun little side business and selling in person and meeting people who come to these events has turned into one of my favorite things. It’s not our typical “adventure” but it’s turned into an adventure of it’s own. I’ve always been inspired by nature, and it’s been fun to create pieces close to my heart.

While this blog initially started out as a travel blog and a way for me and my husband to share our adventures together, we’ve added a few things here and there to make our website even better 🙂 First you probably noticed that our name is no longer Adventure57.  I’ve been selling my jewelry on etsy under the name, Moenkopi Market, and wanted our blog and online shop to be synergistic and all come together as one!

The name Moenkopi is a Hopi word meaning place of flowing water, in the desert these places are sacred and sought after. It’s no secret that we love the desert and all of the red rock in Southern Utah, so the name seemed to stick with us 🙂 We wanted our online community to be able to come together as one, and under one name as a central place for all things, travel, adventures, natural living, essential oils, etc. A place where everyone can come and find something to relate to. A place for everyone, just like flowing water in the desert.

Take a look around and see what’s new and what we’ve added and what we have been doing “in the between” 😉 We hope you still follow along and follow our adventures and everything else!

  1. Wow, you guys have been busy. Nice job on the changeover. When I saw your latest blog post sitting in my inbox, I had to do a double-take, as I never signed up to receive Moenkopi Essentials news. Now I know what happened. 🙂

    Where did you go to the beach? California? Have fun with the markets and your new focus.

    1. Yes it’s confusing!! 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️ lol I went back and forth about the name change quite a bit, but felt like it needed to happen. So I’m sure lots of people will be confused for awhile that followed our blog under a different name at first!

      We went to Huntington Beach and lacuna beach! It was so pretty and a nice change up for us from our usual adventures and trips! But it’s back to the mountains for our next one! 🤗

      Hope you guys are doing well!

    1. Yes it’s still us!! Lol… lots of confusion with the switch! Hahaha… I’m sure it will be confusing for awhile cause we were adventure57 for years!
      And thank you! He is so fun and getting so big! Sure makes our adventures extra special with him now 🤗

  2. I am so so excited for you and this amazing. Everything happens for a reason and there no coincidences. I am so proud of you and what you have achieved in such a short time. Your product is beautiful and infused with your passion. No doubt about it and i wish you much success and best wishes in the future. Although the product speaks for itself. 😉
    Your family is beautiful my dear friend and your little man is getting so big already. Don’t forget to take lots and lots of pictures. ❤️

      1. Awe thank you so much. It’s been my pleasure entirely and I am so glad our paths have crossed. I can’t wait to place my order with you and I got my eye on the copper wander bracelet I saw in one of your pictures but didn’t see it for sale. It might have been a special order but I loved it. Your art is amazing. Just like you. ❤️❤️❤️

      2. Oh your words are sooo kind!! 💖💖 yes that one was a custom order but if you would like one I can make one like that for you! I love being able to create and make different types of pieces for people! Plus it’s so fun to see what people want and how they have unique pieces in mind I do for them too! 💖
