JenSop: The Singing Traveler!

Idealist. Dreamer. Singer. Explorer.

Just plain ol’ excited!

Okay, this is just a short little interim blog while I keep working on some other entries that will be posted later.

What can I say?  I’m so super excited!  In just a little over a week, I’ll be in Croatia, reunited with Miloš after three and a half months apart.  I kind of feel like I’m going to explode out of my skin right now.

The countdown is finally almost done, and the girl who misses her boy is SO ready to see him!

I know myself and how emotional I get.  I cry like a baby every time Miloš and I have to part.  Reunions are always different though.  I always think I’m going to cry, but then I don’t.  I just get super happy and smiley and stuff.  But I don’t know – this is the longest we’ve been apart since last fall – so I’m wondering if I’ll have a few tears of joy escape from my eyes this time.  (We kind of got spoiled during the off-season with seeing each other so much.  So this long stretch apart has been harder than previous stretches.)

I do plan to jump up and down a bit – ’cause I’m kind of dorky, and that’s just what I do.  I also plan to jump right on top of him.  And not let go for awhile.  🙂

Then I suspect I’ll be wearing a smile for three straight weeks!

As for the non-sappy stuff…..  😉

Been workin’ on my base tan…  (Done gradually without burning at all, thank you!)  Feeling in fabulous shape – I’m SO ready to be on the beach!

Hair cut appointment tomorrow,  pre-trip manicure appointment made, packing almost 100% complete.  (Just gotta weigh my suitcase and make sure I’m not over the weight limit!)

Anyway, it’s late and I need to sleep.  Waking up tomorrow puts me another day closer, and another notch higher on the happiness scale!

One of my favorite quotes is, "If your dreams don't scare you, they're not big enough." I guess I've been a dreamer all my life - I set my sights high and then I try to reach the sky. Some might call me a naive idealist, but that's just the way I am. I believe in always taking the high road, I believe in true love, and I believe in treating people the way you want to be treated. If you put good out into the world, good will come back to you! Being the dreamer that I am, I pursued singing as my primary life's calling - I've got two degrees in classical voice under my belt, and I sing just about anything under the sun. I also love a good adventure. Over the past few years, I've done quite a bit of world traveling, and have even lived abroad for stretches at a time: mostly in Vienna (Austria) and Croatia. A few years ago, I was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time, and I became a travel agent who specializes in Disney vacations. (Seriously, I KNOW Disney - I've been going regularly since I was a little girl - and I LOVE it!) And with all my experience traveling and living in Europe, I'm becoming quite the specialist in that travel category as well. (And last year, I started working as a Tour Director in Central Europe!) As to the other juicy details of my life - I'm originally from Pennsylvania, I'm married to an awesome Croatian man named Miloš who is the BEST adventure partner a girl could ask for. (He's also an expert on knowing how to make me smile.) He's truly the love of my life! I've also had all kinds of other jobs along the way, besides singer and travel pro. (Which is pretty standard for those of us who went to school for music.) I've worked part time weekends as a Disney Princess look-alike for children's parties. I've been teaching for almost 20 years, and have lots of experience in retail and customer service. Oh, and I should also probably mention that I'm a huge Lord of the Rings/Star Trek nerd! :-) Let's all go along for an adventure, shall we?
