Fast forward to July 4th and my parents and Kyla came out for a visit. The way holidays worked this year, I only had to take a three days off to get the entire week to bum around the east coast with my family. We headed down to Philly to be with Ben's for the fourth, had a blast doing "Wiegand" things like play word games, go on walks, have outside competitions, and drink Cokes. The west-coasters were initiated to an east-coast fourth-of-July favorite of going to parades ... Monday we went to not one, but TWO town parades and cheered on quite a few marching bands and hot firefighters ... it was pretty warm to be in full gear.
We left on Tuesday to drive up to the Cape for the evening and get ready for our ferry ride to Martha's Vineyard the next morning. And then we had the week in MV for vacation, read: to be lazy. We stayed in an adorable lofted airBnB called appropriately the "Brick Barn" and did some exploring of Menemsha and the fish market, Vineyard Haven, and Oak Bluffs. One day we did a hike in Chilmark and then Dad and I took an afternoon bike ride between the towns.

I'm a twenty-something from the Pacific NW making home in new places as I follow where God leads.
My intent is to show Christ's love to the world and use business to solve some of the social problems we face: hunger, illiteracy, healthcare, economic hardship. For now, I'm in a stage of learning. A little adventuring, a few books, some good friends, and a whole lot of prayer and life runs on.
