While I was Wandering Pearl Harbor

Visiting Pearl Harbor

Last week I turned our photo calendar over to November and saw we picked a picture of the beaches of Normandy for November. As we have travelled, we have visited WW1 and WW2 museums in England, battlefields in France, and concentration camps in Germany. Across all of those travels we’ve visited memorials and military cemeteries for French, German, and American troops. This past summer we went to Hawaii. In addition to the typical beaches, resorts, pools, and luaus (more posts to come!) we went to Pearl Harbor.

My Window to the World

My Window to the World

I started a new job earlier this year.  We are all working remotely now, and I will continue to do so since I live 1,000 miles from the office. That’s a little bit too long to commute. As I’ve met people, I realize with video calls we are providing co-workers a peek into our world – more so than in an office. When I worked in offices, I would bring in a family photo or two, and the greatest peek into our post-work lives was what we chose to share about weekends with each other.

Visiting Disney in a New World

My husband and I are Disney fans. Part of the reason we moved to Florida was to be closer to Disney World. We finally made it to California's Disneyland in 2015. We even added a day to each of our trips to France to include visits to Disneyland Paris. At one point point in time my childhood goal was to be Alice in the parks when I grew up, and as an adult that dream grew into working in a Disney marketing department.

Maybe My Brother Isn’t an Alien

I have a little brother. Well, he isn't my little brother anymore, he is my younger brother now since he is taller than me. 
For as long as I can remember I remember thinking one of two things:
He HAD to be adopted 
He HAD to be an alien
