Each year we are faced with the same inescapable reality…the New Year. For some it is just another day, another season and making a big deal out of is unwarranted. However, for many this season brings about self-reflection that causes anxiety and depression from missed expectations, broken… More

I love to go on journeys. The very idea of heading on an adventurous trip to a far away place and all the unique and amazing experiences that come with it gets my juices flowing.
