Dalton Farms, NJ: Look to the Sun
Last weekend I was originally going to drive up to Vermont (6+ hour drive from Philadelphia) to cross off the final state of my 30 before 30 goal.

Bismarck, ND was my first travel assignment.
Philly, Here I come!
Earlier in the week I felt a stirring in my soul and the quiet but peaceful voice of God telling me keep going. It was very clearly saying that I should not stay in North Dakota for my next assignment. As much as I do like adventure, I also really like comfort. When I meet people, friends, coworkers, and find places I love... I have an incredibly hard time letting go.
