This was taken in a cabin on one of the first adventures of the year, a one-night stay in Sebastopol, CA. It was a small space and looked exactly like the wall in this photo would suggest. Though cute, it was a level of cuteness that I imagine is comfortable for no more than 24 hours. The surrounding area brimmed with trees, the sun was bright, and an orange stray cat weaved in and out of the day. About half of my Airbnb bookings have been within a 100 mile radius of where I live, as I’m convinced traversing your own neck of the woods is its own brand of adventure. I’m excited to explore both near and far this year. Everybody seems to have a really good feeling about 2015, a sentiment I shared until realizing that indeed everybody felt this way, making me question what I thought was my intuition. But I’m crossing my fingers for all of us.
