I had a great time with my family! I'm so excited for this weekend and my adventures with Caeli in Portland!
This summer has been nothing like I expected, but I have been overwhelmed with love, friendship, and God's faithfulness. I love the many adventures I have gotten to go on, experience, learn from, and grow.
