This morning I am sitting on the Chicago Metra making my way into the city for one last day at work, one last day in Chicago, one last day surrounded by the city that I have called home for the past four years. There is still a tinge of nerves as I move into this next chapter in my life, but the excitement has begun outweighing the fears. Sure, there will be ups and downs. Sure, I will face challenges. But I am setting out to make a life that I love and am proud of.
Before I arrive in Los Angeles, my mother and I are taking a week-long road trip across the country. Music playlists. National parks. Crying. Laughing. I have heard about this road trip my entire life. Growing up, my mom would often talk about taking a cross-country road trip and showing her the beauty that is in our own backyard. While traveling abroad is incredible, it's so important to witness the amazing things that the United States has to offer. Finally, at the age of thirty, I am finally getting to take that road trip with my mom.
My life is packed away and neatly packed into the back of my car. Goodbyes have been said. A week-long travel pack has been set aside, making sure that I have everything that I could need during this next week. I recently teamed up with prAna to find the perfect outfit for the outdoors. Whether I am at Zion National Park or looking out at the Pacific Ocean in Monterey, California, I am all set for a weeks outdoors. "prAna designs clothing that looks good but is versatile enough for any lifestyle and adventure. It's common for prAna fans to wear their gear to work and to go for a hike." Not only is the clothing versatile, but it is also mindfully made in order to support fair trade and sustainability.
Chicago, you've been a doll. Los Angeles, hang on tight because I'm coming! And for this next week, category is: outdoor realness.
