It’s been a roller coaster few weeks. I’ve traveled the country from the heart to the coast not once but twice and have found myself at a familiar place – Home.
It’s strange to be home after not being here since early January in the same way that it’s strange when the leaves begin to change in the fall. A mixed sense of relief for the inevitability of the change but a slight sense of dread for the uncertainty of what comes next.
Yesterday I turned 22 and with that I am getting ready for what the year has in store. It was incredible to hear from people across the country yesterday that have shaped the last few years. Relationships are growing and changing since graduation and I am anxious to go out into the world and see what happens. Mostly I am anxiously checking my phone and email and waiting for news.
This year will be full of happy changes, great friends, new adventures, and delicious food. I couldn’t be more excited, terrified, or thrilled. Here’s to 22.
