Our little home 🚐
This is where we sleep, eat, wash dishes, journal, do yoga, make jewelry, edit photos, nap (a lot), sit when it rains, watch Netflix on our phones, call our families, contemplate life, complain about being dirty and broke, and adventure in beautiful places (also parking lots).
The most important thing I have learned from travel, is how grateful I am for friends, family, and connection. If you asked me what I wanted my life to look like 5 years ago, I would have said I wanted to travel solo and be abroad my whole life. But in the last year, that cheesy quote “happiness is better when shared” has become SO real. .
I’ve seen and done a lot on my own. But the experiences I always remember most are the ones I’ve shared with others. It wasn’t the mountain views after hiking for 7 hours, it was the 14 year old who told me all about his family camping trip. It wasn’t the glacial lake, it was hiking down in the dark with new friends. It wasn’t the Gatorade blue waterfall, it was spending time with beautiful people and having tea in the morning. It wasn’t the sunset, it was sharing laughs with a man who said he’d take his 5 year old daughter on an easy hike and then fuck her up on a real hard one the next time (in a very loving way). .
I don’t know exactly what my life will look like back at home, but I do know that I’ll never take family and friends for granted. Little moments like hugging my parents, walking my dog, and choosing to see people rather than always being gone (or I will just drag you out into the mountains with me!!!!!). I’ll help my mom with her garden rather than moving across the world to help someone in theirs. .
Squeeze your loved ones extra tight for me today 💜
