The Joy of Reconnecting

"Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom." — Marcel Proust

The recurring theme here lately has been reconnection, and I'm feeling grateful for so many people I reunited with throughout the week, some of the people who matter the most to me. Last week a group of women I used to work alongside at previous travel companies met for rooftop rosé at her new home in downtown Brooklyn. One of them (who looks just like the brunette in this photo!) I haven't seen since before the pandemic, and social media most definitely does not count. It felt amazing to hug this woman over and over, to feel the length of these past years melt away between us. Over the next few days, I spoke with more people I hold very close to my heart and reconnected in luxuriously long conversations. Love and friendship are hardy, defiant joys that keep us going through anything and everything.

I'm excited to next see my family and more beloved friends in Pittsburgh over the upcoming Labor Day weekend. Dad got me and my oldest friend (from the 6th grade!) tickets for Saturday night to see Chris Rock's younger brother, Jordan Rock, at Pittsburgh Improv. Dad was always such a sport and drove my girlfriend and I to some pretty awesome concerts and films that left longstanding imprints on us - like Teen Witch and Heathers. I can't wait to make new memories together with them this weekend! If anyone's in Pittsburgh on Saturday night, come join us at the 7pm show!

Have you ever traveled with your closest friends before - or as a group together? Some of my favorite travel memories are with friends, and I would love to help you reconnect with all your besties on a getaway! It's not too early to get your requests in now for the holidays, spring break, or even next summer - for you, your loved ones, your family, your friends, or any group you'd like to travel with. Let's start talking about your plans!

You can schedule a free consultation anytime using my online calendar HERE. That first conversation with a new client is a really nice call where we learn more about each other and how I can help you realize your travel dreams and elevate them in ways you might not have considered before. If we haven't talked before, I'd love to hear from you, and if you've worked with me in the past, I'd absolutely love for you to join the reconnection fest happening over here!
