This is what “A Journey Beyond Ourselves” has to offer!
“A Journey Beyond Ourselves” is the strong incarnation of who we’ve become in the last 5 years, through the laughter and the struggles, through the successes and the downfalls. It is the best of us. It is us, as we are.
And this is why we thought we needed a special website… This is why we wanted this little haven of ours where we could expose excerpts of the book before it reaches you. The special website also hosts a section for the polaroid contest held by Your Favorite Enemies.
“Next time we go there it will be totally different because of who we are now…”
