Haley Dawn

I did it.. its interesting to see how much of it I have done hehe

for the love of pictures

Hey jeanette and Krystal :)

jeanette, I'll have to check out your list :)

Krystal, yeah, it's pretty good. It actually listed quite a few things that I had on my own 'to do' list :)

for the love of pictures

Hi Haley Dawn,
I'll have to check out your list as well :)


My time in France was good, however it was super expensive... Although I was comparing it to the cost of living in Russia. But it was definitely worth it! You should totally go!

for the love of pictures

I'm hoping to jeanette. I just need to build up the funds and vacation time :) I've had quite a few friends vacation there and they all rave about it when they get back.


:), glad you enjoyed the list. There are quite of a few things on there that I want to do on there, especially the ones that require travel *wink wink* *sigh*. That requires graduation and then a job, so we'll see! :)

I know. So many trips to take, so little time and money with which to take them :)

Paris was BEAUTIFUL! My fiance and I went this past May to visit a friend who was out there for the year for school. It was so relaxing and the European way of life is so refreshing. I think everyone should go once in their life.

for the love of pictures

I'm trying to get there Haley Dawn :) I took French in high school and have wanted to go ever since then. I'll have to make sure to use the three or so phrases that I still remember when I get there :)


Congrats on ur award :)

for the love of pictures

Thanks Novelista :) I passed it on to you too, so congrats on your award as well :)


Thanks for the award - I did the questionnaire and found out I am pretty freaking boring!

Hey Amy, you're welcome, of course; and I'll have to stop by your blog and take a look at your answers later :)
