“There's nothing more frightening - and exciting - than getting lost in a forest. There is a journey towards the light, and you've got to go through the dark to get to the light. That's what the forest is all about.” — David Farr⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

And here we are. Only three days from our journey. Are you ready? I know I am.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Truth. 🙌🏻⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It is here on these misty mornings
that she spins her tales 
of mystery and gothic imagery.
.
Her words fill the air
like ghostly whispers
lingering far after she’s done.
.
It is this place she returns to.
It is this place that’s home.
It is this place she peoples
with beautiful and terrifying creatures.
“Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.” — Edgar Allan Poe⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

On this day, three years ago, we were exploring the Tower of London. It was amazing! One of my favorite memories!
I found this treasure in a lil free library at a campground we stayed at last weekend. I’ve been super busy but have managed to read a few pages. I’m enjoying it!

“I believe in everything until it's disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it's in your mind. Who's to say that dreams and nightmares aren't as real as the here and now?” — John Lennon⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I can hardly believe that I'm posting this! The countdown to the launch of my secret project has officially begun. I've spent the past several weeks dreaming, plotting, writing, building, and SO much more! I've learned A LOT, and I'm hoping you all enjoy this new thing that has captured my heart and attention. You all are the reason I work so hard, and I'm so grateful for the adventures we've already taken together.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But this next one... it's going to be epic.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Stay tuned.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
