I have always loved to travel. When I was a child our family vacations were few and far between, and I remember thinking that I wanted my adult life to be different; and full of adventure. While I have done many adventurous things (well unless you count traveling with 4 children an adventure) I have made it a point to travel much more.
My husband and I were very spontaneous when we were dating. We would often decided on a Friday evening that we wanted to go to Myrtle Beach, and we would hop in the car and go (we didn't have much money as teens so we would sleep in the car at the pier). Our desire to see more of the US led us to join the USCG, and we have loved every minute of it (okay maybe not every minute, but you get my point).
We have been to and/or lived in NC, SC, GA, MS, LA, MA, NH, NJ, NY, FL, AL, PA, TX, DE, MN and MO. I really only have one other state on my wishlist. I want to visit every state, but the only one I have been dying to visit for as long as I can remember is CA. I lived there when I was a baby, but I don't remember anything about it. I have talked about heading to Cali since I was a teen, and have told my husband numerous times, that I want at least one tour there.
Tomorrow I will be able to cross California off the list, and I will do it in style, because I will be heading to LA! I am super excited to be attending the premier of Cars 2, and preview a few other movies as well. I will get to meet Larry the Cable Guy and Owen Wilson! How stinkin' cool is that?
Yeah I know!!!!!! I plan on sharing every detail with you (assuming I don't pass out and miss it all).
