Dusting off old habits has never felt so good.

Seven years ago I was spending my summer preparing for the complete unknown. At 25 I still believed that unknown was just a temporary season & that life should & could be predictable.

One of the main reasons I was ready for a new season was that I knew I had gone as far as I could go on my own - that I had grown as much as I could flying solo. Something in me craved a team, even though I knew it would challenge me in entirely new (and uncomfortable) ways.

And this team is worth it. I'm convinced they're some of the hardest working world-changers you ever will meet.

Six months in California & almost 32 years of life. Those are good reasons to kick of celebrations on a beautiful Saturday. And I can't think of a better way to celebrate than explore new places with the best of friends.
