…The journey of a thousand miles, begins with one single step…
This is an exerpt from the album created on my Facebook from my travels to France this past December/January.
As I recently posted, I had lost my father and my grandmother within three weeks of each other, but I was blessed enough to go on this journey, which helped me start to get through everything.
** Photos will continue to be added as I edit them, there are still about 1200 I need to go through! 🙂 **
“What a surreal ending to 2015 and beginning to 2016. Lots of laughs yet so many tears. Two of the greatest people in my life left this earth, leaving a gigantic hole in my heart and soul.
However, such is life. You must keep moving on.. Open your eyes and mind to the world around you.. Look for the signs.. Everything will be alright.
Every day is a blessing.
I am so grateful for the support while I’ve been away and re-establishing pieces of me, of my soul.
I thank those who I saw on this trip to France and who opened up their world to me.
And I thank my dad and my grandmother for giving me the opportunity to even begin this journey.
It’s all divine timing.
Lots of love. <3″

“Life cannot be understood flat on a page. It has to be lived; a person has to get out of his head, has to fall in love, has to memorize poems, has to jump off bridges into rivers, has to stand in an empty desert and whisper sonnets under his breath. We get one story, you and I, and one story alone…It would be a crime not to venture out, wouldn’t it?” – Donald Miller
