on being reunited & loving Juli.

When I was on the mission, I would get these sporadic lengthy, hilarious novels of a letter. They were too good to keep to myself so I would read them to companions they were about world travels to Indonesia, and rides on elephants, and running marathons, and shopping for climbing gear, and diving for lobster at night. There's nothing like a good letter from your Mejor Amiga to put a smile on your face.

While I've been gone Daniela's been traveling the world stopping sex trafficking in faraway places and doing desert drop offs of supplies for immigrants crossing the border. Oh & on top of that she's been working on double mastering at USC in social work and public health.

To say that I like to surround myself with inspiring people--kind of an understatement.

Being reunited with this girl has definitely been one of the greatest things about being home.

^^ of course we somehow magically coordinated our shoe color. Typical.

Only days after I came home we were able to score some free tickets to go see our favorite artist, Julieta Venegas, in downtown Hollywood. Juli is such a rockstar and when she whips out her accordion, there's no stopping her! (Please ignore the fact that this event was sponsored by Jack Daniel's, we sure did)

If you're new to Juli, may I suggest Andar ConmigoRevolución, Bien O Mal, & Me Voy.
Ok, basically everything this woman writes is great, so just listen to all of it.

Here's to more future best friend adventures!

Leave a lovely little letter.
