JenSop: The Singing Traveler!

Idealist. Dreamer. Singer. Explorer.

Almost time…

As of tomorrow, the countdown will be in the single digits.  Three months apart almost over.  To say I’m impatient is an understatement of colossal proportions.  Miloš is finally off the ship, and home for about a week and a half until he gets here.  Every time he video calls me now, I just want to jump through that freakin’ screen!   It’s PMS time again, so I’m feeling extra emotional.  Which usually means that I just cry more than normal.  (As my regular readers are well aware of.)  No bawlin’ my eyes out here tonight though, just a few tears of true genuine gratitude.  What can I say… in a few days, I’m gonna be with the man who makes me more than happy.  Elated, joyful, radiant, blissful – basically all those really good words in the dictionary that take happy up a notch.  Up a LOT of notches!

I saw a post on Pinterest today…

“Love is not something you go out and look for.  Love finds you, and when it does, ready or not, it’ll be the best thing to ever happen to you.”

Yup.   It really did kind of start that way.  And it just keeps on getting better and better.

Now, another day crossed off on the countdown calendar.

And I’ll fall asleep tonight knowing that I only have a few more nights of being alone in my bed before I’ll finally get to drift off with those big strong warm arms around me.  Damn, I can’t wait.

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?
