This past weekend was spent in the mountains of eastern Tennessee, a little past Boone. In a cabin filled with hundreds bears (rugs, carvings, decor, plates and even the lampshades) with other campus leaders who also work with Uhuru Child, a non profit that builds sustainable businesses and schools in impoverished communities in Kenya. The weather was sublime and we spent hours outside, absorbing the view and the long anticipated spring sunshine. We even met two hikers on the AT, Hoosier and Joe the Hiker (trail names, of course), who were happy to chat and share stories of their journey so far and their struggles with the unusually late and snowy southern winter.

I used to hate waking up early, but lately have been eager to get up to see the sunrise. Worth it.
