The Journey Tribe
My beautiful friend Jen – where do I begin….. we have been journeying together these past couple of years and spent a week this year unravelling the deepest part of our souls together with some of the most special beings I know. Our friendship is one of deep calling to deep, it does not judge, it does not expect – I love that!
So when Jen and her beloved family began the huge mission of planning a year overseas I was so excited for her family and their journey in 2014 (my brother and sister-in-law have just returned from one such year and they had a wondrous adventure!). Yeup I was also a little sad 🙁 I will miss her but that’s ok!
I offered to take her photo she wanted to have on her blog header to document their time away, backpacks all on, her tribe, her Journey Tribe heading into the wonder of the world – I couldn’t help myself and wanted to document this wonderfully inspiring family before they head off, because a lot can happen in year – kids grow, hearts grow, experiences change us.
It was so lovely watching their interaction – I asked everyone what they were most looking forward to about their trip and what they were going to miss. They all said they were going to miss their friends, family and community they have created. And they are looking forward to seeing how other people live their lives, and experiencing the amazing world out there!
