"We must reconcile ourselves with the reality that we will leave a piece of ourselves in every place we go and love; and must forever bear the heartache of not being able to enjoy two worlds at once"


The friends and I headed to the beach this Monday for a nice and relaxing day off. It was awesome to hang out with some of my favorite people and the scenery at the coast is never disappointing. 


“Run wild. To risk everything. To hold nothing back. To lay it all on the line- your reputation, your success, your comfort. It’s that moment when fear is overcome by faith. Live free. It’s not the liberty to do whatever you want whenever and wherever you want. But rather it’s living in accordance with the Author of humanity, and finding freedom by connecting with the Creator who conceived you. Let the light flood into your eyes for the first time, feeling the blood course through your veins, finding the truest version of yourself by knowing the One who knows you even better than you know yourself. Love strong. Because you were first loved. Because without love, we all perish. Because the earth and the stars can and will pass away, but love, love will always remain…"

Welcome to 2015! I celebrated the old year and welcomed the new one with church friends. I was only able to take a one hour nap after getting home from my journey and haven't slept yet since. Some friends and I decided to watch the sunrise this morning by heading to Rocky Butte. We got there early and were so cold that we couldn't stand to wait any longer and left without capturing that exact moment of the sun rising. We are currently on our way to our favorite coffee shop to warm up and then it's finally going to be time to catch some z's. Hoping you guys a wonderful and blessed new year with lots of exciting adventures and cherished moments. 


After traveling for more than 30 hours I am very glad to be home. It was difficult to leave Australia knowing that I wouldn't see Julie, Kevin and Dedric for a very long time but it was great to see my family and friends again. Thankful for such an awesome experience.
