Last night I said goodbye to my friends, shed a few tears and spent my last night in Utah. This morning I was on the road at 7:00 am to start a new chapter in life … and 850 miles later I’m just a few miles away from my new home in Seattle. It’s been a bittersweet journey, but one that I think has (so far) been extremely rewarding and uplifting. I’m definitely going to miss my friends dearly, but know that I’ll see them again in the future.

To me, life is about risk, change and going against the grain. This move is a big leap into the unknown for me … and sometimes you just have to jump right in to test the water.
