In the past couple of weeks I have been doing some serious traveling.
After weeks of shopping, preparing and fretting over the right outfit. I finally found the right outfit for my brothers engagement in Jordan. I, literally, spent 4 hours looking for shoes one night. I never spend that much time on grocery shopping, let alone SHOE SHOPPING! I wish the story had a happy ending. I didn’t find shoes that night. I was looking for all the wrong things in all the wrong places. I did find shoes the next day within 30 minutes of starting my shopping trip along with a jacket for my dress. Seriously, if I had only known.
While in Jordan, I can’t tell you how many miles I drove…but it was A LOT! Visiting family, friends and new family members. It was a fast week.
The engagement was beautiful. Fun and I had blisters from the perfect shoes…All in All, it was worth it! The look on my brothers face and his happiness…just made it worth it. I am beyond happy for my brother. He deserves to be happy!
After my awesome week in Jordan, another 7000 miles and 2 planes later I reached the US. My mom, being the kind woman she is, drove me 300 miles back to my city. I was a tad sick, as in I had a respiratory infection, and didn’t think I would be up to the drive. What a kind lady! (Did you get that mom?)
I got back to the US on a Monday, back to work on a Tuesday and on a plane again by Friday.
This past weekend I traveled 1000 miles to Washington D.C. for 2 conferences.
It was a great learning experience and just fun to be in our nations capitol. I got to do some major sight-seeing, including some museums.
I went to the Holocaust Museum and it was eye-opening. I saw a lot of parallels between what is happening in Palestine from 1948 till now and what happened between 1941 – 1945. The destruction of towns, people and homes.
After attending my conferences and sightseeing. I flew another 1000 miles back to my city and am back to work. Excited about applying my new knowledge and making things happen!
It’s nice to be home, sometimes.
What have you been up to, lately?
