2012 Adventures!

 The first half of this year has taught me that I simply LOVE to travel!!!

I've learned to:
It's only half way through 2012 and I've already gone on 4 major trips!!!  Who knows how many more  are down the runway  road???   Back in March I took the leap of faith and went on a Mission trip down to Haiti.  It was one of the most unique & incredible experiences ever!  Going with other Church members created a special bond between us through the unforgettable moments spent together with some of the most impoverished people in the world.  This was the type of trip that changes ones life forever, seriously!
The little children's day care for children taken out of the orphanage.   The sweetest little ones EVER!

 Composting with the children ~ one of their daily chores at the school
 These beautiful girls had amazing voices and were singing songs for us!

These few days spent at Louverture Cleary School in the slums of Haiti were beyond eye opening.   It  made me personally aware of those living in other parts of the world through a palpable experience.  On returning to my own bed, I was ever more grateful for the simple things in life like hot water and flushing toilets.   It's trips like these that remind me to:

Following shortly . . .  I road tripped it down to Florida for my Brother's graduation from college.
Way to go Bro ~ Super proud of you!!
 So needless to say..........a few of my recent mottos are....

And that's just what I did when I went to visit one of my best friends in Minnesota during early July! I arrived just in time for their big 4th of July BASH!!!

~ Best friends for LIFE ~

Sangrias and Yumminess Dessert Pizza!
.....and we played way to many games of Dominion : )                 
I was spoiled by the kindest hospitality all week long!

If you ever get the chance to see 39 steps, DO. IT.

Lastly, just this past week I went on an amazing trip with my sweet boyfriend and his family!  Oh yes, you're probably wondering where to????  This last trip was to Maui, Hawaii : )
Charles & I right before the Sunset Dinner Cruise with his wonderful family!

Okay, more stories and pictures to come from my trip to Hawaii.  It is a story in and of itself!!!
