June 3rd: Attend a Lantern Festival

So this happened! And it was so great.

So as you might know I am on my mini vacation in Indianapolis seeing my sister and nieces this weekend. It just so happened that my sister bought tickets for this event, long ago. 

I tried to get tickets to the Denver one but it was WAY sold out. 

So how incredibly lucky am I that I was here this weekend, it was happening this weekend, and my sister had tickets!


It was absolutely stunning watching all the lanterns go up in the sky. We got two- my nieces wrote wishes on them, both pretty profound and selfless-

First, health and happiness for our whole family…

And second, food and medicine for ALL the people in the world that cannot get it or afford it.


Pretty amazing! And a pretty amazing night.

I have two days left here and cannot wait for more adventures. I wish I could travel everyday of my life…

May 3rd: Adopt a Star

I know this is like a really cheesy thing and it is not like I actually own this star but I thought it was something cool to do.

Plus, I found this foundation – White Dwarf Project – which donates the money to scientific exploration of space. 

So I adopted a star in the name of my family:


My family has been going through a lot recently but we are always there for each other and always supportive of life changes and decisions… we are a clan and I cannot imagine my life without them. This star is out there now with our name on it. Regardless of how official it truly is… 

You got to pick  number of star too, so I picked 0825, which is my parents wedding anniversary. ❤😁
