For years, like many of you, I have wrestled with finding my purpose in this crazy thing called life. I have been blessed to become a Mother of two beautiful, amazing daughters, a Wife to a talented and patient man, and for the last several decades, those were my main two roles. I had accepted this “fate” and even when the blog was born back in 2009, it was just a side project, a passion to be indulged when I had the time.
Then something amazing happened….my girls grew up. This window of time opened up that I hadn’t given a second thought too, and then doors started opening to opportunities that I couldn’t even dream of! I started to not only feel my passion of traveling and writing growing, but I realized that the only one stopping me was me. Why couldn’t my dreams be bigger than my fears? Why couldn’t I just GO and do what I wanted now?
And so I dreamt bigger…bigger than I knew what to do with. BUT I am hopeful, faithful, and committed to what is coming next. In 2018 I traveled 30 plus States over a period of 65 days…some alone, some with friends and family, and finished with my hubby flying in to join me. It was long, it was tiresome, but darn it, I was GOOD at it. I faced so many fears on that trip, and I did it mostly alone. I sang, I laughed, I cried, and I resolved demons that needed to be put to rest- it was life changing.
……..so why not do it again? Except THIS time, I will be leaving June 1st for an ENTIRE YEAR!! Yes, I will be hitting ALL 48 STATES in one year’s time, and hopefully visiting Hawaii and Alaska when I return the summer of 2022. But this won’t be an ordinary road trip…this one will be so much more. I plan on raising money for a charity I will announce as we get closer, and I plan on performing acts of kindness all over this great Country. I plan on finding the Disney magic in each State, and I hope to see MANY of you!! I want to hear and see your favorite Restaurant, Museum, Park, etc..
Yes, it’s just me, myself and I. But, really, is it ever? I have so many wonderful people who are reading this right now that have supported and loved me through every tiny moment to every larger than life adventure, that I truly never really feel alone. Yes, it will be long, yes, I will miss my family and holidays and birthdays, but this is something they know that I have been training for.
What will be really fun is that I plan on blogging every day of the trip….yes, all 365. On top of videos, LIVE streaming, and more! You won’t want to miss all of the fun I will be sharing with you…everything from National Parks, Disneyland (if open), to Ghost Tours and Route 66.
I will still be enjoying Disney until June, still posting and loving on the Mouse for each of you. But I will also be counting down to my trip, what I am doing to prepare, what I am most excited about, etc… Kind of like I am relocating to the road for a year.
I am ready for this….are you?
THANK YOU for your Support!!!
Going from “What If? to “Why Not” is my life motto and I work hard at living that every day. I share everything from moving to Florida to live near Disney World to road trips across the States. I love the cool, quirky, and crazy stuff that I can find on my Adventures, and every dollar you donate helps support my efforts and hard work. Thank you to ALL who support me!
