Things Are Happening...


Until I went to Paris for the first time back in 2006 I have to say,

I really didn't like to travel.

I like home...

home is the best...

staying home, or close to it, was "playing it safe"...

and yet, if I had stayed home, or gone somewhere I'd been before, my life would not be anything like it is now. The same year I went to Paris, I had an opportunity to go to

South America...


and Japan...







So much changed for me that year and a half, including how I feel about travel. I learn a lot about myself everytime I go somewhere. It's like a gift each time... to be unwrapped, and explored.

So... there's a lot on the horizon (God willing, as always) and my bags are packed in my mind.

Hope you'll join me this spring, summer, and fall. Here's a preview...

Cruising the Caribbean...


Throwing a wedding in Peru for this man and his fiance...


Going back to Europe...



I know it's going to shock you, but I think we will be going somewhere different than Paris. I think we've got Paris down pat, and it's time to go for it in another country or two. We haven't chosen where yet. We have an opportunity we can't refuse which I'll share later. Sometimes when an unexpected opportunity presents itself, you gotta go for it! Wow, have I ever changed!

Scott has thrown my "play it safe" plan out the window... THANK GOODNESS.

P.S. Never fear, I will be packing my Flip video camera with me!
Here's a quiet spot in the Luxembourg Gardens...

ha ha! love those little pagodas.

these videos are always so much
fun. . . still on the hunt for that
darn instyler!

also, your husband has a very nice
voice. mine has the timbre of a
bass from figaro!

when my kids were little, all their
friends thought he was an opera
singer, because goofs around so
much.

This post made me smile...I feel the exact same way! I have such a love for traveling! I used to always want to stay home because it was safe and so much has happened since I met my husband...who traveled a lot! Now I am the one who wants to go all the time! My trip by myself to Portland was one of those unexpected opportunities that I just had to do...and I am so glad I did! :)

Can't wait to find out more about all your travel plans!

xo,
Adrienne

Teri,
Consider going to Prague. It's one of my favorite places in Europe. And of course, if you come through London, we must hook up....

Happy Travels....
