A wee bit excited!!

Today I apply for my U.S. Passport!  I haven't done this for 25 years, and words can't describe the excitement I feel at the prospect of international travel!!

It has always been my wish to experience other cultures around the world, to immerse myself in the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of distant lands.  As a senior in high school I got to travel to Germany with my foreign language study group, and the experience blew my mind.  Just breathing air in a spot across the globe is exciting to me.

Now, for our twentieth wedding anniversary, we are going to...  Ireland!!  I have ancestral heritage there, and I've always longed to see the green rolling hills and the powerful sea, hear the brogue and meet the people, and perhaps experience a hint of the magic of lore.  I am soooo thankful and excited for this opportunity to be in another world again.
