Headed back to Indiana after a full, long weekend in Asheville, North Carolina for HU House's third author, Whitney Durmick's book launch!
Whitney wrote Half Wild: a prayer for a generation of roaming malcontents and it has recieved so many amazing reviews on Amazon!
I am so stoked to have been enjoying three of my favorite things:
-Freedom of the open road
-Launching new books!
I had quite the outer body experience making the 10 hour drive (in 14 hours) down to NC Thursday. I would stop to gas up and realize I was driving around in my future home! I would park, jump out of the driver's seat and straight into MY BED in the back of my van! I had many a laughing fit on my way through Indiana, Tennessee, and Kentucky on my first freedom road trip.
I giggled with delight as the terrain got hillier, more lush, and even mountainous as I grew closer and closer to my destination.
The outer body experience continued as I hugged Whitney, her fiancé, and dad hello and munch down the delicious steak dinner waiting for me upon my arrival.
We talked launch party prep details and then spent our Friday rearranging the house for the few dozen guests we would be welcoming on Saturday.
I was the furthest out of my body and floating in bliss as I watched Whitney read a chapter of her debut book to some of her closest friends and family. The frequency in the room was that of love, joy, celebration, and deep appreciation.
I get re-inspired all over again any time I see someone's dreams and visions come to life.
It never gets old to me.
You know what else never gets old to me?
Sunday, we hit the links to unwind and get some more quality time together during our short visit.
I stopped multiple times today to look around and breathe the scene in deeply. Being tucked into the mountains of NC, it was saturated with pine, wet mud, and the southern drawl of men on parallel fairways.
I also stopped and laughed to myself as I showered after golf, before dinner, and repeated about a hundred times "I get paid to work where I want, when I want, how I want, with who I want, for how much I want."
In making my dreams come true, I get to help people's dreams come true and I get to golf along the way.
I will be golfing and launching books all over the country in my new van home and I would love to encourage you to follow along by subscribing to my YouTube channel Abigail Rose Gazda
