If I didn't scrap...

At this point I don't even really remember what I did in my free time before I scrapped. I certainly slept more than I do now. And I brought home alot more schoolwork, that now I leave on my desk until the next day. So what would I do if I didn't scrap? Well, I probably would still do some sort of craft. I have always been into crafts...I've done basic jewelry making, cross stitch, some painting and sewing. I would hopefully read more. Probably shop more, for regular stuff like clothes and shoes. Probably be in to more TV shows than I already am. And would get at least 8 hours of sleep a night. But the big question is, would I be as happy??? I probably won't ever find out the answer to that.

Had a blast!

Well, we are back from vacation and trying to recover today and get back in the swing of things. Big Cedar was gorgeous....and we had a wonderful time camping with my parents as well. Every day was full of swimming, playing in the park, napping, sleeping in, and eating good food. The highlight of the trip for me was the two boat trips we took out on the lake- once in a speed boat and once in a pontoon. Jose finally learned how to jump in the water by himself and is practically a born swimmer. We definitely have plans to go back in our future.

Holiday Road

I love the movie Vacation, and since we're heading on our summer vacation soon, I thought an appropriate topic to talk about today would be my top 5 vacation memories.....of which there are many.

and these are not in any specific order
1. a 48 hour whirlwind tour of D.C. with my college roommate- and that included driving time from Florida.....but we had a blast....I loved walking through the National Gallery the best.
2. our trip to San Antonio a few years ago...just Jose and kid...I absolutely loved the history and beauty of the Alamo and its grounds...and we went out every night and drank, danced, and partied like we were young again and in college....went to Howl at the Moon, Durty Nelly's pub, and an awesome 70s/80s nightclub
3. Cumberland Island with my parents- I have never forgotten taking the ferry over and walking around the ruins on the was so peaceful and beautiful
4. New Orleans- I could have just sat at Cafe du Monde all day and people watched and enjoyed my coffee and beignets.
5. all of our camping trips to Anastasia Island in St. Augustine as I was growing up......that is probably my favorite place I've ever been.....I love the history.....the beach......the French bakery we always stopped at...campfires...playing card and board games....taking afternoon naps in the trailer.....I could go on and on.

And this is just the tip of the I've sat here writing this and thinking about all the trips I've taken in my 33 years......I realize how lucky I've been to get to travel and experience as much as I have....and that I was blessed to have parents who loved to travel and knew the importance of passing that on to their children. So thanks Mom and Dad! And here's to many more adventures!!!
