  1. I have a plan – but haven’t done it yet!
    I want to take a map of our state and spae it into a giant heart.
    Then, I’ll take 2 different colors of markers to track all the places my husband and I worked, lived, and spent most of our time – during the 23 years between the time we met in college and when we married.

    (We’ve already figured out that we have seemed to coincidentally lived near each other – and I think it would be fun to see how God kept us close, yet apart, until HIS timing was perfect.

    Thanks for the reminder to get that project done!

  2. I love maps! and globes! I always wanted to have one of those huge maps on my wall so I could put the tacks in all the places I’ve been……but so far, it would have just a few very lonely tacks. haha!
