On Southern Vogue, I typically avoid the topic of "New Year's Resolutions."
Sure, every year I take my own person inventory & see where my life needs... a little fine-tuning.
I avoid sharing them here because, well,
do you really care about my caffeine intake or my relationship with carbohydrates?
But the real truth of the matter is that every year I resolve to do one thing.
One thing that I never get tired of.
One passion that never burns out. One love that only grows stronger.
One goal that I care enough about to see it through, to carry it out.
So, what is it?
Every year I resolve to add a stamp to my passport.
To me, there is no more perfect resolution.
I can't begin to define or illustrate how traveling changes me.
It broadens my mind, it challenges my palate, it makes me question everything in the best possible way.
So today, this little Texas Tar Heel has travel on my mind.
For, you see, in two short weeks, I'll be traveling to Peru to serve at an orphanage for a couple of weeks.
I'm excited to meet these children & to love them & serve them well.
I'm excited to give them a break from their day-to-day lives & create something special for them.
So tonight, I'll go to sleep once more with dreams of far-away lands & the magic that awaits me there....
Now tell me, where do you dream of going next?
