For those of you wondering what i did this past week, here's a video about my whereabouts. You'll notice it's in spanish, but there will be parts in english for you to understand what's going on.

I was at a retreat. I much needed it. I met new people. I prepared to embrace new changes. I was loved. We were all ONE. Together. Juntos.

4 Smiles:

  1. I'm amazed that the amount of inspiring photos you can find and great quotes to complement each other! it's just... wow. :)
