Let's talk about the Grand Canyon! One of my nieces recently posted a picture of her kids standing next to the edge. I have so many great memories of this national park! When I was young, my Uncle Jim and Aunt Dixie lived in the park, where he worked as a park ranger. Some of... Continue Reading →

Number 1 on my bucket list is to go on an African Safari. This would be the exploring kind, not the hunting kind. Not that I'm against responsible hunting- it's just not my thing. I'll hunt with my camera instead. Number 29 on my bucket list would be to swim with dolphins. I have heard... Continue Reading →

If you've ever met me, you'll know that I love music, especially country music. This is the genre that I was raised on, mostly. When I hear the right song, I'm reminded about growing up in southern Arizona, and I feel more at home. Bucket list item number 21 is to attend a country music... Continue Reading →

Number 71 on the bucket list is to visit Neuschwanstein Castle. According to Wikipedia- Neuschwanstein Castle is a 19th-century Romanesque Revival palace on a rugged hill above Hohenschwangau's village near Fussen in southwest Bavaria, Germany. This is also said to be the castle that inspired Disney's 'Cinderella's castle.'  This exact item was supposed to be... Continue Reading →

A special THANK YOU to everyone who participated this year! This has become such a fun tradition! My final count turned out the be 137 friends and family celebrating!... Continue Reading →

Today was my annual recurrent training- a day where I am required to sit in a classroom for eight hours to recertify as a flight attendant. Although this day is more relaxed than initial training had been sixteen years ago, I still find it rather stressful. I know this is mostly head games, though. Most... Continue Reading →

I guess it's time to give you an update. I am happy, excited, and nervous that starting next month, I will be taking up to a year off (the extended time off that I mentioned in my last post). This time off will free me up so that I can help a friend out who... Continue Reading →

It is a crazy time to be employed by an airline! Thanks to COVID-19, many major U.S. airlines are getting ready to furlough or even fire their employees. Delta Air Lines recently announced that they would be furloughing up to 17,000 employees. American Airlines- around 25,000 employees, and United Airlines- up to 36,000. One of... Continue Reading →
