Hurray! It’s so fun for me to look back on these posts, and remember the Hurray Vacay. When I said that getting to travel for 17 days, work with amazing brands, and share it all with you was a dream come true, I meant it. I take nothing for granted when it comes to my work in the world… and my life.
Recently, a friend passed away, tragically at age 35. Watching his loved ones grieve, while I grieved, too, was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. Though this tragedy was heartbreaking, it was also inspiring. Our friend was a motivated, kind, and aspirational person. And his memorial was filled with an abundance of gratitude and encouragement. In fact, I had a burst of motivation to not wait to live life. We are not promised tomorrow. We aren’t even promised the rest of today.
With that sentiment in mind, I decided to take a last minute Hurray Vacay to Puerto Rico, which is where I am right now. With no set plans of where to stay or even knowing how I was getting around, I called up my favorite photographer, Becky, asked if she wanted to join me, and we booked our tickets. There are a few more awesome reasons I’m going. First, my grandparents are from Puerto Rico. It’s the land of “mi gente”, and I’ve never been. I feel this deep yearning to get back to my roots, to speak Spanish, to dive into my heritage. And that will be a lot easier to do because my family is having a big reunion on the island during my time there. Over 130 of us are joining together to celebrate!
I almost didn’t join in for such a momentous occasion, and I’m so glad I did. Without fully knowing my plans, I surrendered, said yes, and went on another Hurray Vacay! I encourage you: don’t wait to be kind, to do what you love, to say I love you, to offer a hand, to take that trip, to enjoy your life, to make that plan. Stay tuned for more photos and posts from the Hurray Vacay in Puerto Rico!
