The Writer

HI. My name is Lucy Larson. I am from Texas. I am twenty-something. I love traveling. I like to eat apples with peanut butter. I love learning about history. I think the ocean is the very best form of therapy (the second best is running). I am a dog mom. I am engaged to my very best friend. I play soccer on the weekends. I really love The Office. And sunshine makes me fly.

I want to see the world. I want to work with companies I support. I want to work with people that want to inspire. I want to take pictures. I want to share the magic that comes from adventure. I want to build a life that I love. I want to be a good steward of the time given me. I love the life that comes from traveling. I don’t have any specific stipulations for where I’ll go. I want to see it all.

I also believe in building a life you don’t need to get away from. I believe in incorporating travel into your ‘normal’. I believe in living minimally. I believe in quality over quantity.

I also strongly believe in community and working together to inspire and do great things.
So, I want to hear from you!
