I love to travel, which is probably a good thing, because I’ve spent all my life moving, from one place to another. I’m going to give the short blog, list version of my travels….
Long Island to Fort Lauderdale, FL
Fort Lauderdale to Grand Rapids, MI
Grand Rapids to Pittsburgh, PA
Pittsburgh to Manila, Phillippines [a side trip to see the Pope and visit distant family there]–a once in a lifetime opportunity that I earned by writing an essay. Paid-for-trip by the Knights of Columbus… I always stick a dollar in their Tootsie Roll fundraising. 😀
In here, I travelled the country with a mission group, stopping in many states of the western side of the United States–MN, WI, KS, OK, TX, NM, CA, CO…
Pittsburgh to Fairfax, VA
Fairfax to Steubenville, OH [for college, where I got married]
Steubenville to Denver, CO [for husband’s post-grad]
Denver to Steubenville, OH [back to our old stomping ground to start off “real life”] ***also where I started writing!!
Steubenville to Fairfax, VA [where we lived with my parents and husband studied for the CPA exam]
Fairfax to Decatur, IL
….and then we joined the ARMY! haha.
Moving vs. Travelling
There are always two sides of the moving coin. The excitement of starting off new, of tweaking behavior, trying something different. And the sadness of leaving friends and family behind. I think what I love about moving around so much is the chance to grow more roots, make new friends. Find something different to make my life fuller. Maybe the truth is…I’m not much of a traveller at all. I like being home. Maybe that’s why I’m destined to move so much.
Now, if I could just get the Army to move us to Belize! or Ireland! or Spain–for a season! 😀 Have a great weekend, folks. Enjoy where you are.
