After a lovely evening with Nicole of Local Love 805 and her husband Brett (Kyle's best friend of, like, 25 years), we are driving the 7 hours from sunny Southern California to snowy Lake Tahoe to spend Christmas with Kyle's family.
But that's not going to stop me from saying:
Merry Christmas from me & the boys of Just Go Left!
Whether it's taking 7,458 photos of me holding a cup of coffee for Instagram (blogger problems) or staying up late to edit videos of our adventures (holiday adventure coming soon!), Just Go Left wouldn't be what it is without Kyle. He selflessly gives his time, his talents and his encouragement to this blog; always reminding me to keeping chasing this dream.
Though he mainly shows his adorable little face on Instagram, Gatsby has become the mascot of Just Go Left. Not only does he allow me to dress him up in silly costumes for my enjoyment (and yours, see photo above), but he keeps the legacy of choosing joy alive; a legacy his brother Warner started so many months ago.
And, to all of you who come here everyday and show your love, support and stories with me: I couldn't do it without you. Thank you for being you, and for all the love you show to this little corner of the internet. I feel lucky and honored to share my story with you.
May your Christmas be filled with comfort, love and joy.
I will think of you as I'm frolicking in the Tahoe snow like a 4th grader.
