Oregon, you show-off! 😍
Looking back at my 10-day birthday trip, the Pacific Northwest was the perfect place to clear my mind, slooow down, break away from daily routine and celebrate 34 years of life. No real plans, no hangovers, no excuses, and no complaints. A 5-mile trek on Angel’s Rest Trail to this magical summit, was all I needed to start vacation off just right.
I learned so much this past year. Mostly that life can be tough and I’m stronger than I know. One particular thing I’ve reflected on is how much I value my own time. I don’t consider it selfish - I consider it taking care of myself. When I’m not working my butt off, I choose to spend a great deal of my time in places that make me feel most alive and at peace. I have to make time to reset and just let my mind be still. In other words, I’m the outdoorsy type of couch potato! Perhaps that’s why I love my closest friends so much, because they never expect me to be more than I am.
