Continued Legacy

“Leadership is about making others better as a result of your presence and making sure that impact lasts in your absence.” -Sheryl Sandberg

We had the chance to visit BAAYF for a couple of days last week and upon returning home, my heart couldn’t have been more full. Making our way back to this special place each year, where I myself have grown so much as a person, a believer, and as a leader continues to inspire me. The person I am today, is due in part to the countless counselors and staff who fed into my life. Without their one on ones, their check ins, their faith in what I could become, I wouldn’t be here seeing the fruits of their labor. Now to see my own campers in running the camp and stepping into these leadership roles has been such a gift. I could not be more proud of these young people and the love and passion they have for the youth of this generation. Both my boys who aren’t even campers have also developed a love for this place that runs deep in their veins. Our entire family is indebted to this incredible camp. Until next year…

Last weekend we took our first friendcation with some family and friends. It was the first time, Juju had the chance to travel with someone his age and it was glorious. The two were so happy playing together basically all day long. The three little nuggets were adorable as ever as they took in the scenes from their baby carriers or from sitting on the sandy beach with sand running past their itty bitty fingers. Between all the good food, the donuts, the desserts, we had ourselves quite a blast. I hope these photos will bring back fond memories for years to come as we travel from place to place together. #squadgoalswiththeserascals
