This blog originated from desiring an outlet where I could share my love of photography, writing, travel, and yoga. Quickly, I found myself diving deeper into those aspects of my life and further away from technology and time online. It wasn’t till recently I found the opportunity to dive deeply into myself in a way that feels therapeutic to express with friends and strangers. What I am about to share is the beginning of a whole new... Art of Balancing.
On September 2, I celebrated my 28th birthday. It was all orchestrated by my amazing partner, Mac. He rented canoes, got a bunch of my friends together and we set forth to an island on the Upper Kananaskis where we had snacks and burgers. We listened to music and laughed and let the mountain wind try its best to blow us away.
After an eventful trip back to the 'mainland', we returned home, shipwrecked and ready to dance away the evening at the one-night-only, Back Alley Reunion. We did all the things. Embraced those darker days of emo tunes and hardcore rock 'n' roll by head banging and getting messy. It took me back but also reminded me how far I had come. I woke up the next morning to a hangover(as you can imagine) and like a bad joke it didn’t go away.
