1 day closer…

Thus far Andy has done all the blogging. On the trail we will figure out how to both share our stories and experiences. 
First let me admit that it is weird and scary for me to share my thoughts, fears, mistakes and accomplishments with a group of people. I consider myself to be an open person but usually one on one. It is terrifying to write about my emotions and struggles and send it out to the world. This PCT journey is going to one of stepping out of my comfort zone into the unknown and enbracing discomfort, so why not start with blogging?!

Afterall, you are my community. 

Here I am, sitting on a plane flying down to LA for my first Armenian wedding experience, 1 day of throwing food in boxes and one last night in the comforts of a familiar home.

There are so many emotions swimming around my head and heart I don’t know where to begin. I look forward to the silence and expansiveness of the southern Californian desert to devote some time to process all that has happened in the last few months.

Leaving a 5+ year life in San Francisco, friends, a predictable routine, and most difficult of all, a mother with compromised health – all for the unknown adventure – is terrifying. There will be moments of excitement, sadness, nervousness, self growth, humor, fear, playfulness and physical, emotional and psychological exhaustion.

 I am glad I have a way to share it all with you!
