It feels great to finally be back in my familiar desk, writing on the blog again after so long! I think it's about time for an update don't you?!
Ahh, where to begin! The story left off during a very hard time in our lives, (read the post here) my Grandfather was diagnosed with a deadly infection that affected his whole body. We flew out to Guatemala as soon as we could to be with him and the rest of the family in the hospital, and witnessed an amazing miracle there!
Because I spent a month and a half in Guatemala during all of this, I was able to go through many, many experiences that impacted my life greatly. The long days in the hospital, and the never ending struggles of recovery prevented me from staying in touch and keeping the blog updated as I would've liked. But as often as I could, I would jot down some of the most special details that happened throughout the days. I'm grateful for these snippets of recorded information...they will help me tell you the stories exactly as they happened!
But those stories will have to be saved for later, as today I'd like to share another important thing with you.
I happened to be browsing through my very first blog posts today, and I was so surprised when I found that the first one I ever wrote was posted exactly three years ago, on July 10th, 2013 (my grandpa's birthday!) And wow, what a journey this has been!
For three years I have been sharing my life on the blog with friends and strangers alike from around the world, what started out as a simple hobby turned out to mark my entire life, and what seemed like a fun pastime when I was seventeen, has now turned into my full time occupation.
For this reason, there will be some changes going on around here!
The biggest one is dividing this website into two.
laprostudio.com will be focused on the company that bloomed out of this blog. I am thankful to be more involved with the work I am so passionate about. This is why it is necessary to expand the work operation of this website and mainly focus LaPro Studio on projects, clients, and work inquiries.
I will also have a special place for those of you who like to keep up with the stories, and all the fun stuff ;)
thiswanderfuljourney.com will be especially for you to come and check out the latest media and blog posts! I will continue to share about any adventure, great or small, this journey happens to take me on.
While trying to come up with a name for this personal journal and blog, I kept thinking....what an incredible three-year journey this has been! Full of wonderful opportunities which have made me wander and explore this beautiful earth God has created like never before. For this reason, the name This Wander ful Journey sounded just right! :)
Online courses, e-books, audio downloads, and more frequent videos is just a tiny bit of the many things that can be seen on the horizon beginning next week!
God bless, and enjoy the journey!
See you soon,
