  1. The March family from Little Women by Louisa May Alcott Ever since I read this book years ago as a child, I have wanted to be a part of the March family. Marmie was everything a mother should be, and I would find myself lost in pretend that she was mine. Meg, Jo, Amy, and Beth were my pretend sisters, and even though my twin and I were (and are) incredibly close, I wanted the March girls to be part of my family, too. I think what appealed to me most was the warmth and closeness, two things seriously lacking in my own home environment. Even though they argued at times, they always supported each other. I'm not one usually given to sentimentality, but this book and this family gets me every time.
  2. So many to choose from; the choice is almost impossible! Ireland is the most obvious choice, but at the risk of being redundant, I will travel around the globe and pick Bali. On a purely superficial level, my grandma has me hooked on JTV (Jewelry television) and I've become totally obsessed with Bali jewelry and styles. So, yeah, there is that. I also love learning about new religions, cultures, cuisine, etc. I suppose one could say I have a very broad worldview, and Bali is rich in all of these. I think it offers enough diversity that one would certainly never get bored. Plus, the scenery is gorgeous!!
  3. I have been fortunate enough to visit both Catelina Island in California and Monhegan Island in Maine. Of the two, I would probably say I prefer Monhegan, but I believe that is because of personal preference and no reflection of the islands themselves. Both are beautiful in their own right. Catelina was part of my senior trip and Monhegan was a vacation my husband and I took for our anniversary. I am a self-admitted 'yankee', despite being from Texas, so that my explain my preference as well. Also, Monhegan reminded me of my dream island....Ireland. I have never been to Ireland, but it is definitely on my bucket list! I am of Irish ancestry, and I feel a kinship with Ireland that I honestly can't explain.
