Young Women in Excellence... "Personal Progress Can Change the World!"

California's Pacific Coast Highway 1...

 My family drove the PCH in our camper when we were kids.  We drove from Arizona so it made for a really long drive for all 7 of us.  When we weren't all fighting 😊 I remember my sisters and I checking out all the surfer boys from our cool ride.  Another memory was driving down Lombard Street in our camper... We were so cool!

Chihuly at the Desert Botanical Garden...

 I'm so excited Chihuly's exhibit returned to the Desert Botanical Garden.  I'm a huge fan and even met him years ago at the Tacoma Museum of Glass at a book signing and watched him blow glass with other glass blowers from around the world.

PERU and the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu...


I'm so glad to finally check Peru off my Bucket list.  I've made several attempts to visit Peru and finally made it in May 2013.  Greg and I and 10 friends visited Puno, Cuzco, hiked the four day Inca Trail to Machu Picchu and ended our trip in Lima before flying home.
