Today, we have some exciting news to share. In a few short weeks, Kellie and I will be off to CHINA! I can't begin to explain to you the level of excitement I feel. Traveling is one of my favorite passions (you can read my gushing love for it here), and I've been feeling like an international trip was in order. As you may remember, Andrew and I try to make it a goal to travel somewhere international every year. It's my trade off for living in Utah. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy living in Utah (endless outdoors activities, great quality of life, beautiful landscapes, etc.) but the lack of culture can make one feel incredibly stifled. An international trip helps revitalize my life, goals, and ambitions. Every time I travel, I'm reminded that life/our world/being alive is incredibly wonderful! So, when I was asked to dance as part of the USA International Dance Team on their China Hoops international tournament tour with the NBA, I emphatically said YES.
Now, it won't be all fun and games, we're dancing at 20 basketball games and performing 12 numbers at each game. That's definitely work! But, I could not be more excited or grateful for the opportunity; to get to travel to CHINA, a place that's part of my heritage, with my twin sister?! Beyond thankful.
We hope you can come along with us via social media (@katiecockrell, @kelliecockrell, & @katieandkellie), because we're sure to flood your feeds with inspiring, amazing photos from our trip!
