The more I travel, the more I see...

It has been a very long time since I have written a blog. So I believe the last time I blogged I was in Kingsport, TN. Oh man, I miss Kingsport. Before I got there, I thought, Ok, I am going to Kingsport, boring is that going to be? But I loved it. I miss all the wonderful people I met there, but just like every other location I have been too, I must move on and go to the next.
I have, for the last month, been in Fresno, CA. Training with my partner Jon. Things are going great here. Great people and beautiful weather. I decided to go back every other weekend. So the weekends that I have stayed have been wonderful. I have been able to mark some things off my bucket list. I know I am kinda young to have a bucket list, but I have one. Some of the things that are on there aren't really important but the things I marked off, I wouldn't want to do it with any other people than the people pictured above. My wonderful parents decided to come and spend the weekend with me. We made plans to go to Yosemite and to go to San Francisco.
So to get back to the bucket list. Yosemite and Giant Sequoias have been on the list for a long time. To see El Capitan and Half Dome has been a dream forever. Then The Giant Sequoias. HOLY MOLY. I loved Yosemite, I got to see everything I ever wanted to see. It was breath-taking. Too see God's beautiful creation was astounding. To see Half Dome from Glacier Point is something I would tell anyone to do for sure.

Then came the beautiful Sequoias. I knew these things were big. But these WERE HUGE!!!! I have always wanted to hug a giant tree. When we were going through Yosemite with our own person tour guide. (Mark from my class in Fresno was awesome!!!!) Anyways, I saw some tall trees, and the trunks were big as well. But to see the giants...oh my goodness! They were huge! So amazing! My mom and I have a great picture of us standing in between two ginormous Sequoias and it was just crazy. Then down the road a little bit there was one of the trees that had fallen over and the roots were so tall and amazing. Pictures can not do it justice. The time spent at Yosemite was one of the great memories that I will share with my parents for years to come.
Then on Sunday we made our way to San Francisco. Again, we had a wonderful tour guide, Mr. Fred Adelman. We spent the day walking around Fisherman's Wharf. We had a wonderful lunch. Then walked down the pier and I touched the ocean. Of course mom and I had to do some shopping and other things. We had dinner reservations at Fog Harbor and it was wonderful!
To try to explain how blessed I feel for being able to do a job that I love, and to see this beautiful country, it is priceless. I am loving life right now. My family is doing well, my job is doing amazing, I have a boyfriend that I could not even begin to explain how great he is. I LML! Fresno is awesome. I am going to miss it. But I am ready to be home and spend sometime with my boyfriend and family. I'll write again soon.
