Over January 14th and 15th I went on a birthday adventure with my friends to Manzanita, Oregon. I met Ashley and Kellen last March at the Go Outside Workshop in Palm Springs, CA. Since then we’ve become great friends! Also along for the trip were Dominika and Hanna, two of their friends I hadn’t had the pleasure of meeting until I arrived in Portland. I honestly believe people are brought into your life for a reason. I left from this trip a better person. As friends we have the opportunity to share our success and failures, to learn and to grow from one another. As we open up and really listen to one another we increase in our ability to love and understand. I have so much to be thankful for! This includes Ashley, Kellen, Flint, Dominika and Hanna! Thank you for a wonderful two days. So glad I brought my camera!
