Best. Summer. Ever.


Summer is right around the corner and it's got me all warm and fuzzy inside, reminiscing about my best summer ever....

In all honesty I've had some pretty epic summers.


From traveling alone to Australia to meet my family when I was just sweet sixteen, to backpacking and camping under the stars... Every summer has a story but this is the one that stands out most in my mind.

Best Summer Ever

I was 19 years old. Fresh faced. Just quit college. Was thrown in to "adulthood" and now had to make it in the real world. All I wanted to do was get a job and werk, werk, werk, werk, werk, to be able to save enough money to go traveling.

I knew I had to take off and explore by my myself. I had this uncontrollable urge to experience a new culture and country. Looking back I think I probably had this desire from about the age of 12. Something just told me that I wanted to try a different life.

Luckily for me I have a Mama who is very supportive and she always told me, "What's the worst that can happen? If you don't like it, you can always come home."
