Progress. The past year I’ve made it a mission to make motion a part of my daily life, to never stay idle for too long, and to grow and seek betterment as much as possible. It was a year to filter out what means most in my life by inundating it with everything that’s possible.

Thank you to everyone who helped me build these memories. I’m forever grateful for the opportunities I have to travel, build, connect, grow, change, and progress. I’m excited for what the future holds. Cheers.

Blessings. It’s easy to forget them in the midst of the chaos and even harder to remember them in times of despair. We often forget how much power they hold and how much inspiration they can bring. I live for memories likes these. Memories that bring light and invigorate the soul. It is in remembering all that we have that helps us conquer fears when in doubt, find happiness in sorrow, and fly when we are down. Thank you Fiji for your unabashed beauty, breathtaking culture, and undeniable love you brought to my heart.

Sydney was vibrant and full of life! We explored the bustling city, unspoilt beaches, beautiful Blue Mountains, and sparkling Darling Harbour. Congratulans Roicelene and Danwin on your amazing wedding! A BIG thank you to the rest of my Australian family for taking care of us!

Going to Cuba was like going back in time. Classic cars cruised across the streets, buildings blazed with colonial and baroque architecture, and technology was far and few between. People clamored and played in the streets day and night and music filled the alleyways everywhere we went. It was simply magical.

Thank you South Africa for the amazing adventure! The wonderful people we met along the way perfectly complemented your beautiful terracotta sunsets, vibrant rolling hills, and rugged blue coastlines. It was a wild, untamed, and endless adventure. Until we meet again. (p.s. My drone died halfway through the trip — yikes! I tried to stitch together as much as I could!)

Last week we took a journey to Zion and it was simply breathtaking. The massive sandstone cliffs that soared into the blue sky captured wonders in nature rarely seen. The rocky precipices and teetering canyons not only dwarfed us literally, but figuratively by its sheer beauty. Here a few glimpses of our journey there.
