Oh man. Best. Trip. Ever. Can we go back yet?!

The past ten days were beyond anything I could have ever imagined. So much peace and serenity. California is exactly what I needed. The weather, the views, the beaches, the activities, the shopping, and of course the company!! It may sound cliche and hokey, but I honestly think I have gained a new perspective on life. This has been one of the hardest years, mentally and emotionally for me, so this trip really meant the world to me. Especially getting to explore and hike around Joshua Tree on my one year anniversary date. (Thank you for my mini celebration on the rocks! That really got me!!)

Life is not alway pretty. Grief, trauma, mental health, addiction, etc get to us and knock us down, but it’s not all there is to life, and it certainly does not define someone as a person. There is so much beauty and joy to be found in the world if we just take a second to pause and look around.

I am so grateful that I was able to have this experience and even more so that I was able to experience with such beautiful people.
