Home in Alabama

There’s no way to put into a few words how incredible this weekend was. If you want the short version - I found the family I’ve been searching for for years in Mobile, Alabama. The long version: Started almost four years ago in July 2014. I was in my last month on the World Race [...]

Restore the sparkle to my eyes

At some point over the past year, I stopped journaling. I’ve always been super into writing everything down, in specific detail, no matter what, because I wanted to have everything documented.
