Living my best life with a dead mans child and a hole in my heart. I am Angela. I am a widowed mother of three, and a pediatric nurse. I am a novice hiker. I have found peace in the woods since my husbands death. It’s the only place in the world now where I feel like I belong. I’m beyond excited to venture out and thru-hike the AT. I am a survivor. I am lost. I’m hoping to heal and find myself again. I want to show the world that there’s power in grief, and even when life is painful there’s still so much beauty in the world.
