About Me

Hi, my name is Becca. I’m from the great city of Chicago, but I am currently a teacher in Guatemala.  I am also a traveler and a creator and a reader and a writer and a friend. Sometimes I like to call myself a professional human, because the things I do best aren’t the ones that make money.  If it were up to me, I would pay people for reading and laughing and breathing.

I believe that life is an experiment, and it’s okay to fail.

I am regular a contributor to Single Roots, and I write here about traveling and about relationships and the process of starting over.  I’m trying to be more thankful for everyday moments, and find the wonder in a life that usually looks less than pinterest-worthy.  I’m just figuring this out, too, and I hope you can join me.
