I'm going to do 2 lists for this. 6 Places that I loved having been at and 6 places I hope to go one day.
6 Places I loved being:
- In the hospital when I first held both my girls. Those two moments were two of the best of my life.
- In the car with Mikey when we went on our vacation to South Dakota five years ago. South Dakota was nice, but I think the fun of going with him was probably the best part of that. The Badlands are pretty awesome though.
- In my Great Aunt Phyl's house. I loved that house. I have great memories of being there when I would walk the mile over from my Grandma's and I have great memories of being there when I lived there with my parents. Sometimes I'm sad that they don't still live there.
- On the basketball court in high school. I wasn't really all that good at basketball, but there was something about being out there and playing that I still have dreams about. Now the locker room being yelled at by coaches and teammates...that's a different story...
- In my classroom when a student gets excited about something we are studying. I'm a dork who loves all the stuff I teach and I get pretty excited when a kid shows some enthusiasm.
- My bed. I love sleeping. I particularly love when all 4 of take a nap on weekend afternoons in it. That's pretty close to heaven for me.
- Yellowstone - we are actually sort of planning a trip next June with my parents to celebrate Mikey and I's 5th year wedding anniversary and my parent's 40th ann. (I know we are soooo romantic - traveling with my parents for our ann.)
- New York City
- Washington DC - I went in high school for a week, but I'd love to go back now and see all the history. I could spends weeks in the Smithsonian I think.
- The East Coast - I love to take a trip where I visit major battle sites of the Revolutionary and Civil War.
- Europe - I went last summer with my aunt and her son's school group to England, Spain and Italy, but I would love to go again with Mikey and my girls (and probably my parents because I like their company). Sweden in particular. My brother-in-law is from Sweden and I think it'd be neat to see his home in person.
