Following in her Footsteps

Irene left town several months ago and has been traveling the world with her family. That is the focus of her blog, The Travel Creatives. But it isn’t just a travel blog.

But I wanted to know what it would be like to live my perception of a Northwestern life while I was home in the South.

So…I snapped this picture to remind me of my wish….it is perfect for this week’s Wishcast. Continue reading
