Last year was breathtaking and beautiful! Each place I visited was a new adventure. I took my camera everywhere, trying to photograph what felt like needed to be documented.
Italy was like a chord attached to my heart, playing the tune of a lovely Italian love song. My heart is still swooning.
I stood in front of a Picasso painting for the first time in my life at a museum in Germany.
I visited a concentration camp in Munich, Germany. I have read books, but I had no idea what actually happened here. There is so much to learn from history by visiting where it all happened.
South Carolina had the coolest trees, and the best fishing! I caught my first alligator gar! I also caught a few smooches from my husband as we celebrated 7 years of marriage and 10 years of together.
Lakeside, Ohio, had the great lakes (Lake Erie) summer weather, and the fair ! How can you say no? Look at these faces!
New Zealand is where I will move as soon as possible. I will become an Islander and convert to talking in a beautiful accent.
I swam with volcanos in the distant, became a cave junkie, climbed a few cliffs, and I am pretty sure I will move here one day with my family.
I got to say "yes" to a lot of new adventures in 2015. I am not sure 2016 will be this adventurous or at least in as many places in the world. What a year!
My advice, when possible travel, don't wait.
I almost didn't go most of these places because I am a mom of three kids trying to start a business, homeschool, and probably a million other reasons small enough that I can't remember. I am thankful I had the opportunity offered to me, by the most generous people. And I am also thankful for the ones that said when I asked if I should, "are you kidding me, GO!".
