I Am Beyond Grateful


20 years ago today, I was dropped off at Fort Warden state park in Port Townsend to start working with Northwest Youth Corps. 8 weeks of work in the woods I was told, a paycheck I was told, new experiences I was told.

All of that came to fruition, but also such incredible change and self-discovery. What an amazing journey that season and the following four would offer. Now seven years have passed since I decided to come and give back to such an amazing organization.

I look back at all of my experiences here as well as this past week, I can help but smile.

I love this life. I am beyond grateful.
