Just a few more hours and Mom and I will be in beautiful Puerto Rico 🇵🇷 excited to visit with familia, eat some good food, and soak up some sun 🌞
Why do I always wait till the last minute to pack? 🙃
Mariana’s version of American history: Hamilton and “that’s the tower that Spider-Man was on” 😂 to be fair, @mari94haddad did correct me on a couple of historical facts haha
Sometimes I wonder what random people’s pictures I’m in... just like this guy 😂
When you’re at the end of your work day and all you can think of is having a late dinner and resting your tired feet, be kind. When you forgot your coffee and didn’t get much sleep, work harder. When other people don’t know that hardship you’re going through and unknowingly say something to upset you, be gracious. Think beyond yourself. You are not the only that is frustrated, tired, or upset. Love on others. Investing that love in someone else will reap a much better benefit than harboring a negative spirit.
Colossians 1:21-29 || Jesus had no obligation to save me. He wasn’t obeying orders, but fulfilling a promise on his own volition. He wanted you. He wants you. He always will.
Just rewatched the new Lion King and it was just as good as the first time 🙌🏽
What are some practical things you do to help reset your focus if you’re in a creative rut?

One of my favorite things about a city is seeing the old intricate architecture mixed with modern skyscrapers 🏙
First stop in NYC was 💃🏽
Christmas mode is a go🎄
So, @delaney.johnston is a creative genius. Not only did she capture these shots, but she had the idea for them as well. Loved being able to feed off of her artistic mind 🧠
Twenty five years into marriage, and these two are still so in love with each other ❤️
My excitement level for NYC tomorrow with @delaney.johnston 😁
Coffee and deep conversations are my love language, so it was a perfect combo for a hangout 😊 plus pictures, duh
I have a distinct memory of when I was visiting family in Martha’s Vineyard and I was about 11. We were at an intersection and the only other car was a 50s baby blue convertible with the beach setting and a clear blue sky in the background, and that’s when I first fell in love with an antique car 😍
Taking advantage of the fall time before it goes away 😅

What an overwhelming task this is that I am attempting to describe the Holy Land to you! Every travel experience is unique and beautiful and contains certain elements that will make it this way. Travels will vary experience according to their purpose, location, culture, etc.

Israel is special to me, mainly for its connection with the Bible and Jesus’ ministry. I most definitely understand this trip costs money and takes time, but if ever given the opportunity, you should go! My dad was key in giving me a passion for Israel, as I was able to go through his tour company, Land of the Bible Tours. I am sure if you are well-traveled you could agree that some experiences can never be justified in mere words or even beautiful pictures.

To be where Jesus was and very possibly have walked in His exact footsteps is such an incredible thing. But more than the emotional and spiritual understanding is being able to bring your Bible reading to life and picture things more accurately. There were so many details I had viewed wrongly in my mind and facts I did not understand until I was able to see the Holy Land for myself.

A couple of key pieces of advice for those planning to go to Israel… Take a journal with you. There will be a few sites you visit every day and so much information. It does get a bit overwhelming, so either write on the bus between sites or sit down in the hotel at the end of the day and write your highlights. You will be so glad you did! Make sure to visit old Jerusalem during your free time and buy some memorable souvenirs like jewelry or a beautiful scarf. Not surprisingly, I recommend you take many pictures! This is a once in a lifetime type of experience, so don’t forget to soak in every moment.
