Today is the penultimate day of the Guest Blogger Month of LOVE series. And it is great to have Ashley back on the blog for a second year. Her story last year is still a popular one as she is 100% honest, a true virtue in this day and age! This bubbly lady from Hawaii is a wonderful mommy and wife who takes her social media followers along with her on all her world travels. So I wasn’t surprised to see what this year’s LOVE story was about, as she has nearly every page in her passport stamped!
My love of traveling with my family.
I’m just a girl from a Hawaiian island called Oahu.
I had always dreamed of traveling but never really thought it was possible. It was more of a fantasy. Then I got married to an amazing man in the military. That led me to leaving the nest and traveling all over the U.S. and eventually to other parts of the world. I became a Traveling Military Wife.
And last but most certainly not least, I want to share how much I love Karen. She is an inspiration and an incredibly loving person. She exudes love. Karen shows love, and doesn’t just present LOVE as a campaign on social media. Oh no, Karen actually IS a very loving person. Now, I haven’t had the privilege of meeting her in person yet but I’ve had many conversations with her and she has such a loving heart. I can’t stress enough how fortunate I am to be able to call her a friend and to be able to reach out to her for advice, prayer, or to say hello. I love you, Karen!
Feel free to follow me on social media if you’d like to go on an adventure with me, next stop is a South East Asia tour! Though currently I’m in South Korea!
Traveling Military Wife, Ashley
Aw Ashley, what a sweet LOVE story and thank you for the kind words. I am grateful for your friendship too. We are blessed to live in a time where we have access to travel, even when we stay at home. We can travel virtually, through watching our friends on Snapchat who take us around on adventures. I will never forget the excitement of watching the Winter Olympics from front row seats because you were actually there! So I was there with you! Thank YOU! Keep on traveling my dear. Your soul will keep getting filled. And your generosity by sharing the experiences with others multiplies the joy.
One of my favorite quotes on travel is “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” Ashley has a very thick book going so far with all of the travels she and her family have gone on so far. And even when we might not have the money, time or physical ability to go on a trip, we can always travel through eating different cuisines or listening to music or looking at art from different cultures. As big as the world is, we can still feel close to our fellow humankind by making an effort to experience life from their perspective. That my friends creates peace and tolerance! Two key components of LOVE!
