and, ohh how I love each and every one of you.

As my life has progressed, I have slowly but surely realized 8 things. 

  1. I love literature and poetry. (A few favorites: “Daisy Miller” by Henry James, “Girl Through Glass” by Sari Wilson; everything Mary Oliver.)

  2. and writing is fun too.

  3. “It’s not the weight you carry, but how you carry it” that is the most important. (Thank you Mary Oliver for the insight–go check out her poem “Heavy” )

  4. Planes, trains, automobiles and hiking shoes are a must have to support my exploration habit.

  5. but a journal and playing cards are just as good.

  6. My life verse is Numbers 6:24-26: “The Lord bless you and keep you…”

  7. Health is a blessing but illness is not a curse.

  8. Teaching is something I love and something I want to explore more.

And so we are here. Here at the stage of a dream coming true. A dream of traveling the world on my own. A dream of teaching. A dream of being healthy, happy and hopeful.

On June 23 (25 more days guys!) I travel across the world to teach at Bethel International School in Tacloban City, Philippines for the 2016-2017 school year.

So welcome, friends! I am excited to embark on this next chapter and let you travel with me via the internet. It will be fun!
