There was nothing I wanted more in that moment than to hold your hand. I wanted to connect with you; I wanted to enjoy your presence with more than just my eyes. I was afraid to, though, because I didn’t want to disrupt the natural beauty that was right next to me.
So I didn’t.
I just watched you be.
Everything about you was warm, and that warmth was palpable. Right then, I felt like I was in a museum for the first time. You were an art, a masterpiece I couldn’t believe the world could contain; a masterpiece that made me think too much and feel too much to speak.
So instead, I just thanked God in my head for the sight.
Come to think of it, He had a way of doing that—creating things that were so awesome you couldn’t help but stare. These things were magnificent, but they lasted temporarily. Sunrises, rainbows, star-filled night skies. But you? I didn’t want you to be temporary, so I closed my eyes and prayed that He would let me enjoy you forever.
This was a sight I wanted to see as long as I lived.

Ever since I started my MBA program, backpacking and diving has sort of been placed on the back burner, simply because I'm in class all day every Saturday. I'm trying to get through this last push to get back to doing things I love: looking forward to the long treks in remote places; the exhausted feet and the feeling of finally pitching tent and making meals; going into the water and feeling weightless then coming back and getting annoyed with the cleanup attached to the gear. Which doesn’t usually excite me but hey! If it gets me in the water...I’ll do it.
I surprised @alexrenee with a helicopter flight for her birthday, we landed at the top of an epic mountain for an engagement shoot, got caught in a huge rainstorm and she got to fly the heli. All in all it was an unforgettable experience! Click the link in my bio to watch how it all went down 😄🙌🏻
Also huge shoutout and thanks to the folks at @bchelicopters and @zmelhus for capturing some amazing moments that will hang on the walls of our future home ✌🏻
