The Unknown Future Awaits!

Look out, World, I'm visiting soon!

After years of talking and writing about it (view here and especially here), I'm finally doing it! I turned in my notice at work and am hitting the road after D’s wedding and the boys’ baptism. I’ll explore all the wonders the USA has to show me: national parks, lively cities, new friends just waiting for me to say "hello".

Ahh, I’m so excited! My heart is soaring. There are no regrets in my mind or soul. This is what I am meant to do and I'm finally following that little voice within. Finally.

So, tell me your favorite places, the ones that changed your life or left a lasting impression. Share your joys with me (and maybe the name and contact info of your cousin's nephew by marriage who has an extra room and happens to live in ____!).

I'm heading to San Francisco today! Bliss for an immediate grand adventure, even if it was a preplanned trip (D's bachelorette party). We're exploring Muir Woods, visiting all the touristy photo ops (Golden Gate Bridge, Lombard Street, Fisherman’s Wharf, etc.) and then a day trip to Napa. Oh! And we'll be able to watch the eclipse from the beach by our rental house.

First trip: next Saturday I'm flying to Phoenix, and A and I are venturing north to all the national parks in the AZ/UT area. Thrilled to start my adventure by seeing some of our nation’s best parks.

The AZ/UT trip is the true test. Am I keeping my apartment and taking mini trips or will I sell everything and hit the road for an unknown duration?

Ahhhh! The unknown future awaits!

Italia...mio amore

Walked to the bus stop for 20 minutes in the POORING rain, the first time we have been rained on....then rode the bus to Dublin for 3 hours, freeyzng, and all three having to pee...what a fun ride, let me tell you. Rome....Italy...Colloseum...Thomas and Kendra doing their own thing...Roman Forum...Fontana di Trevi...Palayyo Montecitorro...Temple├čAdrigano...Patheon...Vatican (met a youth pastor from MN, and a Priest from NJ)...Tombs of the Popes...Caste Sant Angelo...etc. etc. etc. Lots of old buildings that i took pictures of and will most likely have no idea what they are when my parents ask. The one thing i cannot get over is how well built and detailed these buildings are and how LONG it must have taken. I mean, buildings todaz last two years before thez start falling apart. These have lasted centuries and are being destroyed bz air-noise pollution-modern days doing. Booo Meghs and I went to an Irish Pub with Karaoke....i know...i know...but we werent ready to leave Ireland! Got

Christmas Letter

Hello Beautiful, Amazing, Wonderful People!  As 2018 comes to a close, I’m so thankful to those who’ve supported me over the last year. 2018 was a huge transition year for me. I entered it uncertain what the year would bring, where I would travel, who I would meet, even where I would be sleeping. Twelve months later, I’ve moved back to the city of my teen years, started a business, and am filled with a sense of rightness and jubilation. Many, many thanks to those who let me crash at their place when my life was filled with uncertainty. To those who sat down with me to talk out my business plan or brainstorm ideas.   To the remarkable people who frequently inquired about my progress and to those who have been praying for me. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Today, we took my Aunt and Uncle to tour Galveston. On the drive home, my mom, Aunt, and I sang Christmas carols at the top of our lungs. Before you picture beautiful harmony, let me explain that on a scale of 1 make

Celebrating D in San Francisco!

D invited all of us to San Francisco to celebrate her upcoming marriage (11 more days!). There were 9 of us and we had a blast. Playing tourist downtown, wine tour, visiting Muir Woods, and just enjoying each other in laughter and fun times. I’ll take you through our events: Do you like sea lions? Ever been to Pier 39? You should! The sea lions were so much fun to watch. It’s like they were fighting for king of the mountain, or in this case, king of the floating dock. Two would fight, one in the water, one on the dock, then the one in the water would swim around, and jump onto the dock from a different direction, and knock off the original one. Then a third one would join in on the fun. Sometimes, a sleeping sea lion would be stepped on and would wake up growling. I assume that’s where the lion part of their name originated? The best part were the three that were sunning themselves, lifting their faces and chests to the sky. It looked exactly like Cobra pose in yoga. Oblivio
