Add me to the lighthouse love club, too.  I've only seen one lighthouse in person and that was from an airplane so not sure that really counts. haha    For military spouse appreciation day a few years back, Our base in NC took us on a flight in a C-130.  We flew to the Outer Banks and circled around the Cape Hatteras lighthouse a few times.

Wow, so many of us have Maine on our list.  I would also love to do a California winery trip.  Costa Rica and Aruba are next up on my will go to list.  I also hope to get to Ireland 3 years from now.  My son will be turning 21 then and his name is Jameson.  I think he needs to be at the Jameson distillery on his 21st birthday.  I thought about taking him this summer for his 18th, since the legal drinking age in Ireland is 18, but it is just not going to happen this year.  Probably my dream trip though would be a trip to Italy.  I would love to spend a month or so traveling the smaller towns with a few days in Milan and Rome.

Ooooh California Winery trip, that sounds fun! Napa and Temecula are my favorite, but there's so much good wine here! Napa can be a little overrated sometimes, but Temecula I think is underrated. My favorite winery is in Temecula, South Coast Winery  :)

I've been to Maine quite a few times.  An ex-boyfriend's dad had a cabin up there so we went up there a number of times and it was always fun but COLD at night.  I can't stand to be cold. It takes me hours to get warm again.

 

I have a photo album of all the lighthouses I've ever been to.  I've been to all the ones in NY, NJ, Rhode Island, Maryland, several in Maine, Mass, Florida (both coasts and the Keys), North Carolina, South Carolina, the Outer Banks, Virginia and Conn. Quite a few on the Gulf Coast: Mississippi, Louisiana, and several lighthouses on the Mississippi River when I lived in New Orleans. There are 8 lighthouses that I've seen that no longer exist thanks to hurricane Katrina and Rita :(  and I've seen 3 of the 5 Louisiana Lighthouses on the Lighthouse Digest "Doomsday List" :scared: . I've seen either 17 or 18 lighthouses (I can't remember exactly now) in California when I lived there and 4 lighthouses on the West Coast of Mexico.  I've also seen the lighthouses at Negril and Lovers' Leap in Jamaica.  I used to have the goal of seeing all the lighthouses in the US until I realized that there were a ton in the Great Lakes and I'm not a fan of lakes. Then I revised my goal to see all the lighthouses on all the coasts of North America and now I'm just lighthoused out I guess after seeing so many and knowing I still have a lot more to see.  The ones that were the most fun were the ones that still had Lighthouse keepers who had been working there their entire lives!!!  They had such interesting stories to tell!

My dream destination is Spain. I've always been fascinated with their architecture and lifestyle. The hubby promised to take me to Spain on our 10th wedding anniversary. My best friend's partner is from Valencia, he agreed to take us to the all the cool places the locals like to hide from tourists. Next month is our 7th wedding anniversary so only 3 more years to go!

 

In the United States, I really want to go to Disney World and stay there for a whole week :)

I went to Spain when I was in high school and it was amazing! Barcelona was my favorite. It was like a big city and a small town all rolled into one! Las Ramblas was so great. I also went to places like Paris, Rome, Vienna and yet Barcelona was my absolute favorite!

@@bonita22 Disney World is so beautiful during the holidays. It's fun all year round but the holidays are all lit up.

I've been to Disneyland during the holidays and it's magical. I've been told Disney world is even better. I hope to go there soon :)

Paris and Rome are also on my list of places I would love to go. If I was super rich, I would spend most of my time traveling :)

With all this vacation talk I would love to got to New York, Paris, Rome, Barcelona, and maybe a few places in between. I have only been as far as San Francisco to the north and Dallas to the East. I have been as far as Ensenada and Sonora in Mexico.

 

I do want to go back to Santa Fe without kids, it was so magical when we were there and it started lightly snowing! Ojai seems like it would be nice and relaxing to go back to without kids too. Drove through there on the way back from Santa Barbara. Also definitely will be going back to Sedona.

 

My favorite winery in Temecula was Monte De Oro.

    • I’m afraid that this resource does not become a “breeding ground” for viruses that will then spread at the speed of light. Therefore, I advise all visitors to read the https://thinkmobiles.com/blog/best-free-antimalware/ blog, which clearly states why this or that antivirus and its characteristics are used. Just do not be indifferent to these problems and selfish.
    • Careprost is a regenerating agent that was originally developed to treat hypotrichosis and restore healthy eyelash growth. The product is a sterile solution that should be applied externally, treating them with the growth lines of the upper eyelashes and eyebrows.  Perfect eyelashes complete the look of your eyes; they add beauty to you and make you look attractive. Fuller eyelashes not only define your eyes but also sharpen your facial features. Eyes with long lashes look bigger and brighter. Whatever might be your skin’s complexion, your sharp features make you glow even in your dark skin color. The cosmetic market has a wide variety of eyelashes of different colors, length, density, and curvy ones etc. which you can wear with ease. But are these fake eyelashes are much being easier to apply or they are actually hassled. Putting fake eyelashes is a tough task and make the process troublesome is to make them intact for a long duration, controlling your hands to not to touch them. Using fake eyelashes is a temporary solution; it does not give you a natural look.
