Oh do I love to explore! Have you seen all my Life Travel log? I didn’t grow up particularly adventurous or well-traveled. I took a few summer church trips canoeing around the country, and spent lots of time in Colorado visiting relatives and snow skiing. My parents took me to Disneyworld as a child, but my first real big trip came when I went on a church mission trip to Ecuador in 2004., and I kept exploring as I spent 2 weeks in Italy & Greece with hubby in 2005. After that, we just started traveling.
Speaking of travels- it’s about to ramp back up into high gear around here. Seattle, Denver, Philly, and New York between now & November, and this doesn’t even include work trips & a few baseball trips hubby is trying to squeeze in. AND…. we’re going to Hawaii for the Christmas holidays. I’ve long dissed Hawaii and thought it was all over-priced hype, but I’ve finally decided to give in, use points & miles to not break the bank and spend a week in a tropical paradise. We’re still tossing around ideas for our big anniversary trip in February, but we’ve got some favorites.
We love to explore our town. Houston is really quite an amazing city if you give it a chance- there’s always new restaurants & bars, great events, and it’s constantly changing. We’ve taken several tours of town & are always hoping to take more to learn about our beloved city.
Doing a lot of personal exploration these days. Taking the Pathfinder course last fall opened up this whole new realm of personal development and self-love topics I am dying to explore. I’ve probably got 20+ books sitting on my desk, begging to be read. If only I could freeze time for about a month & soak it all up with photographic memory. I’m thoroughly enjoying the whole process of founding Grow Soul Beautiful, and the unbelievable doors and possibilities that have opened up where I get to explore so many new things & ideas.
Things I’m not so good at exploring: new foods, new routines, fiction books, new music.
GOOD NEWS OF THE DAY: What a weekend- nonstop action, covered tons of ground, and are ready to blaze into September.
