Monday Sweetness

Getting to meet new people has got to be the sweetest part of blogging.  I don't just want to tell my daily story but I want to read what other people do.  I get thrilled when I see blog with pictures of different parts of the country.  It is my way of taking a trip and seeing the precious nuggets that are tucked away in the American landscape.  I like hearing about people's adventures and learning what has worked for them.  My hope is that I too can share my heart.  I want people to read between the lines how grateful and blessed I am by such a loving God.  It is most important that I carry a message of courage, courisosity, and challenge.  I want people to feel a sense of curiousity in learning something new or getting to meet someone.  I hope that people have the courage to step out of the box, to extend themselves to reach new dreams and embrace greater visions.  I want people to feel challenged to improve our world, starting at the community level.  It is through giving of ourself that we recieve the most reward.  Start with a faith based foundation and build upon one adventure at a time. 

1. Do you have any New Year's resolutions? 
I have several resolutions that are all based on personal growth; faith, happiness, and self-awareness.

2. What food item are you craving right now?
We bought trail mix at the grocery store but I haven't opened the package yet.  I'm going wait for tomorrow.

3. When is your birthday?
April 28th
4. What were you doing an hour ago?
I have been watching the launch of the Oprah Winfrey Network.  The shows that will be on the network sound fun, informative, and encouraging.

5. Last thing you cooked?
I made "Chalupas".  They are like a taco salad bowl but the tortillas is fried flat. I got the idea of making them when I walked in the grocery store and they had gorgeous huge avocados on sale.
