First Day Feels

To get to this spot after so many months of planning, thinking, dreaming, fighting over it with loved ones, and knowing how much I wanted it, is exhilarating and terrifying. I’m so lucky to have this opportunity. So lucky to have had the drive to make it happen. So lucky to feel so at home in nature. Even when we rolled into this beautiful backcountry camp spot feeling like intruders, all I can do is smile.
