Life is a surprising and unpredictable journey. At any given moment in the past 33 years, various paths have been presented to me. I have chosen to take some and forego others, decisions which have ultimately determined my life today. I have learned invaluable lessons, met wonderful people, and seen beautiful countries, yet I know that I still have so much more to experience. Some of my life’s choices have been made with my head - the “voice of reason” - leading the way, while others have been a result of the emotional influence of what my heart says. There is no doubt that I have made mistakes along the way, and I’ll continue to learn as I go, but my faith and the support of my family and friends have given me the confidence to follow a new, unknown path. I am excited for what the future holds, and hope that you enjoy experiencing this journey with me from afar. My life, as I know it today, will change for certain...but my head and my heart are telling me that there is no other decision but to take the first step on this journey of a lifetime.
