It’s vacation time! Sand in your toes, fun water parks, a historic town, or a cute mountain town are all great destinations for your vacation. What is your ideal vacation?
My all time favorite vacation was when I was younger. I went on a week-long trip to Matamoras Mexico. My trip to Mexico was a test for me as it was a missions trip. I had a desire to help people and my goal was to end up in Haiti one day. I needed a small “international” trip to expose me to a culture other than my own. I flew down to Galveston, TX to meet someone I never met before. I was dumb when I was younger. 🙁 When I landed, no one was there to great me. Turns out the team in Mexico wasn’t expecting me until the next week. After a 2 hour wait, a very nice girl came and drove me across the border. Once I got into Mexico, I felt lost and alive at the same time. Mexico is not as clean as the States. That was the first culture shock. The second was the language barrier. I stayed for a week and assisted in a hospital, a children’s home, a church and a few other places. My best memory in Mexico was actually the day that we went to the market. I was surround by all things spanish and I LOVED it. I was so fascinated by how their markets worked and what they carried. That trip was an over in a whirlwind but I sparked in me a desire to travel. I did eventually go to Haiti on a real missions trip. One day I should go through my old photos and write a blog post about that. Sadly I have only been to small places around North Carolina but one day I will renew my passport and I will jet off into the sunset with my husband! With all of that said, this chick is packing up and signing off. I am heading to the beach for the week but I want to leave you with a senior session I shot last month. I rolled out a new program for high school seniors in the Charlotte area. I blogged about the Senior Rep program here.
Meet the first Senior representative of 2015: Ashley. Ashley is a senior at First Christian Assembly in Concord. She is a UCA competition cheerleader as well as a cheerleader for her school.
I still have a few spots available for senior reps for the 2015 school season but they are filling up fast. The reps can be either girl or guy and only 2 students per school. Email me to find out how you can earn money as a Senior rep for Poetic Edge.
