Aside from Jesus, "...traveling is the great true love of my life...I am loyal and constant in my love for travel...I just don't care what it puts me through. Because I adore it. Because its mine. Because it looks like me." - Eat.Pray.Love.

Here you will find my travels, not just physical travels but emotional and spiritual as well...journeys to different places in the world and journeys of the heart. And, of course, fun and silliness too :)

1 Thessalonians 5:18

Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.

Most of my California family got to come to Texas for Thanksgiving. Yay! My brother, Adam, sister-in-law, Dani, cousins, Jill, Brent, Kim, and Asher, Aunt Linda, and Uncle Ted were here. I just love it when we all get to be together. We tell old stories, play games, eat delicious food, create new jokes that we replay over and over, and, of course, laugh constantly. This time there was even more to smile about because of sweet baby Asher.
