What the heck is Geocaching??

What the heck is Geocaching??

What the heck is Geocaching?? I don’t know about you, but I loved treasure hunts as a kid, anything with a mystery attached to it piqued my interest. Geocaching has brought the treasure hunt we knew as kids to another level. It offers people of all ages the chance to discover a city or area in a different way. I love to travel and although I enjoy experiencing all the things that you are supposed to see in a location,…

The 4 Leaf Clover Project: Sharing a little Luck

The 4 Leaf Clover Project: Sharing a little Luck

When I was creating my Bucket List Project several years ago, I remember being able to bang out 80+ things in the initial writing of my list in that old composite notebook.  It came easy to put down travel, adventure, and even self Improvement items on my list!  But when I went to read what I had written down, almost off of them were about me!  This kind of disturbed me a little cause I was raised to always help others whenever a situation presented itself.  So I…

90-Year-Old Woman Says No Chemo So She can Travel The Country

Now from 20-35 years…

“If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail!” ~Benjamin Franklin Ok So I realize that it is already mid May and that 1/3rd of 2016 is already over but that doesn’t mean that I didn’t plan it out!  I just didn’t share it yet!   In fact, every January, I tend to sit down post Christmas and start Bucketlistlusting (is that a word?) from my Old Notebook.  Then I literally create a year graph and draw out how I…

Boudin & Beer at Fred’s in Mamou

Boudin & Beer at Fred’s in Mamou

Located in the heart of Louisiana’s Cajun country, is the small town of Mamou.  It is famous for its music, musicians & bills itself as “The Cajun Music Capital of the World.”      Now that all sounds nice & cute but why would anyone take the 3 hour drive from New Orleans, a city with tons of music, just to go to some small town in the middle of nowhere?  Well throughout my project, I have experienced this unique feeling of accidental discovery, especially of…
