While traveling through Dixieland with Grant and Olivia a few months back, we made a one-night stop at the Nottoway Plantation in Baton Rouge. It was an interesting educational experience that allowed me to revisit some of what I’ve learned about our country’s history. I will never, ever get political here on the blog (not my style), but I can acknowledge the many wrongdoings that occurred at places such as these in The South. While there have undoubtedly been improvements made in America over the years, we still have a long way to go. But, at the same time, I think we can probably all apply this as a metaphor to our own lives in one way or another…nothing is perfect. 

So, I arrived with an open mind (something I attempt to do come each and every new day), and took in my surroundings…attemptng to envision what the place once was, acknowledge the positive changes that have occurred, and appreciate the physical beauty that stands there today.

So grateful for these adventures I have been fortunate to take with wonderful, educated individuals…people and destinations that never cease to inspire me. With each experience (good, bad, happy, sad), I find my mind and imagination expanding. What more can one ask for than progress?
