Ready Or Not, Here We Go

Stella and Luke test the traveling thing out and decide to take the plunge and go for it…

Life is suddenly moving so fast, yet it’s the perfect speed. As if all I have ever wanted found its way in, effortlessly. I could not quite pinpoint it, but now that it is here I know it is it. We did it – Luke is just as crazy as I am, in a good life-is-an-adventure way. Off we went to Sequoia National Park and it was amazing. He already had a tent and sleeping bags, we mapped out places to camp on the way, packed a bunch of snacks and headed on a 10-day trial exploration. By day 3 we were pros at setting up and tearing down the tent, gazing at the starry sky at night my favorite. He brought his camera along to take pictures and videos, and at the end of each day I wrote a little bit about what we did/saw in my online journal. I am not going to lie, stopping at a nice coffee shop on the way back and getting a cappuccino made to perfection felt like heaven to the city girl in me. However, the days spent wandering among the giant trees away from civilization brought us so much inner peace and sheer joy.
