So this past week has been full of homecoming hugs, girlfriend beach sessions, ocean swimming, cookouts, breakdowns, rainy afternoons, tearful goodbyes, tearful hellos, kitty snuggling, lake kayaking, and sunrises and sunsets. June is a month I adore. It's the month my soulmate was born, that time of the year when the earth officially welcomes summer, and the month I will make this north woods state of Wisconsin officially my new home. I'm excited for the summer, for more traveling, and to be surrounded by family again. So many changes and challenges, it's tough not to get overwhelmed. This next season of my life however,  seems to stretch out long and far in front of me begging to be embraced. I have no other option but to embrace it and flourish in it or despite of it.
