I’ve put off a lot of things that I need to do to spend precious time with my dad while he’s here for two weeks, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I lost my mom and two close friends 21 years ago, and it forever changed how I live my life. I learned to cherish every minute with my dad, family, and friends. I learned to always make time for those who matter to you. And I learned to always ask myself, “If this is the last time I see or talk to someone, am I at peace with how it ended, or will I have any regrets?” That question is always my North Star. So I’m cherishing this time, letting a few things wait, and being present. Oh, and this picture? We took it today while we were on a whale watching tour, which was amazing as always!
