Trip 2: A magical night in Key West

The tiny white lights on the large Victorian house caught our attention. Had it not been for them, we might have missed the massive front porch nestled behind the crowds of people who walked by without blinking an eye.

An update on my big adventure

I am a bit of a planner. Ok, maybe more than a bit. After all, I’ve been planning to visit 50 places I’ve never been the year I turn 50 for months now and the adventure doesn’t start for another 11 months. I like to be prepared, what can I say? God finds this funny. He and I have been…

Trip 20: Mackinac Island and all the feels

“You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.” The path I’ve already walked is is what it is. Right up to this very moment there is nothing I can do to change what has already happened. What happens next, however, is my decision. Each of my trips to 50…
