So, usually when I disappear for a few days, that means big things are happening.
Well, they are.
I can’t really go into detail about what’s going on right now, but as soon as I can go live with all the spicy details of my life, I most definitely will.
Let’s backtrack for a minute.
Arizona was amazing. Four days in the car with my dad seeing the wild west. It was perfect. The sunsets gleamed across the sky in oranges and pinks. The cacti grew all over the place like trees in the south. The sun tanned my skin and the wind blew my hair.
The Grand Canyon was everything I expected it to be. Breathtaking, shocking, a giant hole in the ground. Our guide was kind and funny who could relate information to us in a professional and comedic manner. I know what it’s like to be a tour guide and lead the same tour day in and day out. It can be exhausting, but he did a wonderful job. I felt like it was his first tour. His love for his job showed through his every word.
Washington DC has captured my heart. Some of the best people I know live in DC, and I enjoy visiting them. We don’t really go site seeing, but rather, we spend a lot of time together goofing off, drinking, and enjoying being in our 20s in a strange town. There’s something special about getting lost with your friends in a new city. It causes you to come alive in the most primitive way. I can’t really explain it, but I go to DC to enjoy life. I’m forever thankful that my friends are willing to let me crash on their couch. 🙂
Home is good. The Cantrell’s had a sudden passing in our family this week. 🙁 A cousin of mine is no longer with us, and that’s really strange to think about. I’ve been blessed to have all of my family for as long as I have. We haven’t had to suffer loss. My sister and I weren’t incredibly close to this cousin, but it’s still shocking. I feel for my cousin who is still here. I cannot imagine a life without my little sibling. I don’t even want to think about how she feels right now.
Back to happier things.
I’m working on a few things in the writing/blogging/traveling world. Like I said, big things are happening. As I can release the information, I will. I hope to have an official logo soon with business cards. Maybe my column will be syndicated. And a whole bunch of other stuff.
More or less, I have given myself a six month timeframe to get everything done and together.
And get my body in shape. That must be done as well.
Hoping to get back on the bandwagon and write more often! OH! And hopefully I’ll get my editing done on my videos from my latest adventures. Haha. One day.
Peace, love, and travel
