Final day! After looking like typical tourists at LACMA and full out performing car karaoke through LA traffic, we stopped by our home office in Ontario before heading to dinner with my Tito and a few of our teammates. Let me just say I am so grateful to be surrounded by some of the most hardworking people I know. These guys don’t quit to help out families wherever they are. Literally. From the waiters to the family sitting at the table next to us, etc.
We headed to the airport, checked in, and arrived to our gate with a total sense of melancholy. As we waited for our plane we reminisced about the past week where we dreamed and planned like never before. Sure, we’re just a couple of mid-westerners who desire something bigger and it’s almost a norm to feel such emotions in such a place, but when you both feel a stirring of direction from God- that’s something you can’t ignore.
As for the post’s title, our week’s theme song and as we venture out into business together!
“Get your killer heels, sneakers, pumps, or lace up your boots. Representin’ all the women, salute, salute!”
Until next time, Cali!
