My Wish for the Week: A trip to Vancouver
A few years ago, while I was on my way home from the airport, I got into a conversation with a guy from Vancouver who tried to convince me that his island was better than my state of Colorado. Full disclosure: this guy was also kind beautiful… but my swooning is beside the point:) Ever since then, it’s been at the top of my list of places I still want to see.
Weekly Wish: Learn Another Language
I know that growing up in America has been such a privilege, I promise I know that. However, I can’t help but be amazed by people from other countries who grew up speaking multiple languages and are now bi- or trilingual (or more!). Not only is knowing another language a great skill, I also think it comes down to a very simple appreciation of the world, the people in it, and the way we all communicate. And there is something so sweet about that. My personal top picks would be to learn French or Chinese…Spanish and I don’t stand a chance. If only I could roll my R’s.
