June 1st: Take a Mini Vacation

This is much needed!!! 

I arrived in Indianapolis where my sister, Nicole, and her three kids and husband live. It is going to be a quick 6 days but I am excited to be away from work and spend some time with these little ones… (plus one more not pictured)!


We have so much planned. An afternoon in the park, then my sister and brother-in-law go to Chicago for a concert while I watch the little ones… art time, movie and snacks, ice cream, Auntie sleepover… it’s going to be a blast. Then, weather permitting, Latern Festival (which is on my list and sold out in Denver!!), Wonder Woman movie day, soccer game with my sister’s league. 

It’s going to be a fun filled packed few days but great!

March 19th: Explore Google Earth

I am sure many of you out there have explored cities and monuments with Google Earth. I evidently am behind the times. But working now to catch up. 😂

If you have not explored with it, I suggest it. I just spent a few hours exploring lots of places and just got enthralled with it.

Also it seems like a good resource you could use if you were traveling somewhere. You could learn the layout of cities and help you get around! Or if you do not have the resources or ability to travel, it is a pretty cool way to see things in a more 3-Dimensional way than just looking at photographs.

January 4th: Make a List of 20 Places to Visit

Well, this might be the easiest thing I will do during these 365 days! As I sat down to make the list it was pretty much done before I even started. Although the biggest task will be actually visiting these places in my lifetime. And when/if I go there finding and exploring the most intriguing places while there.
