Where would I go

Today is day 1 of the WordPress PostADay2011 challenge. Today’s topic is: List three countries you’d like to visit, and why you want to go.

The top 2 for me are a tie. I would love to go to Peru and Brazil. The main reason is that I sponsor 2 children through COMPASSION INTERNATIONAL, and my boy, Christian, lives in Peru, and my girl, Nadrielle, lives in Brazil. I would love to be able to one day visit both of them, just loving on them and getting to know them in person, not just by way of letters and pictures, and be able to hug them and play games with them. I also love to travel and experience new cultures.

The third country I would love to go is Italy. I am part Italian, and I love Italian food, and it would be amazing to get back to my roots, see where my family is from, and just experience all of the richness and beauty and culture of Italy.

Where would you go?


New year, new beginning(s)

Happy New Year and welcome 2011. I don’t know about you, but 2010 was not one of my favorite years. A lot of change and heartbreak. And hopefully a lot of growing will come from it. I was looking back and realized it has been WAY too long since my last blog post so one of my New Year’s resolutions was to be more consistent with blogging.

In the spirit of keeping this resolution, I have accepted a challenge from WordPress for 2011 to blog more often. You can read about it here. They will email you a daily topic or you can opt for a weekly topic, depending on how frequently you wish to blog. I am getting the daily topics, with the hope that I can at lease blog once a week! Please hold me to it.

What are some of you New Year’s resolutions? What were your favorite moments from 2010?
