It feels like I’ve been having to constantly pinch myself lately. I feel extremely fortunate to be in such a beautiful place surrounded by the most wonderful and welcoming people. The best that I can describe it is that I feel like a plant that was transplanted to better soil. It initially hurt to tug my roots away from where I was born and raised but now that I’m settled I feel like I have a better chance at thriving. The soil is so very rich here.
