I’m going to tell you a story…one that occurred in a very unlikely place that will be stuck with me forever.

My best friend and I were at the beach. I can’t remember if it was spring break, or if we met up in the summer. I can’t remember if it was Oak Island, Myrtle Beach, or some other beach on the east coast. What I do remember from that trip, is having a conversation with a shop owner that changed my life. My friend and I walked into the store with the intention of buying a couple of souvenirs for family and friends back home; what we left with was so much more.

Where Are You From?

‘Where are you from?’ Such a simple question for most, but a complex one for me. Read on to find out why!

“Where are you from?”

The Reason Behind My Dream Destinations of Palestine & Punta Cana

Want to find out why these two places are currently my dream destinations? Trust me, it’s not what you think!

Everyone has a dream destination: a city, a country, a landmark, or a resort they’d love to visit sometime in their lifetime.
