Enjoying the magic of 5 million lights!
So – what do my nephews have to do with my Travel Agency? A lot! They are my inspiration! They are the reason I chose the path I did. I want to be able to see them and spend time with them whenever I can. I want to be able to share the world with them. They are amazing little creatures who show me the world in a new and hillarious light. A couple of quotes from James – who is 5, who until recently always called me Susie.
“James, why do you call me Susan?”
“Because it is your middle name.”
“What is my first name.”
I love it! And the fact that he had a perfectly rational explaination for it was priceless – and consistent. Told his papa the same thing when he asked.
And then, as he was trying on my Eeyore slippers, there was the, “Susan, do these slippers squeek? Are they Stompeez?” I said no, just Eeyore. “Oh”, he says, “they are ordinary.”. James, what does ordinary mean? ”It means that they don’t do anything!” Again, brilliant!
And the reason I love them so – “Susan, we have to look if you have any cool toys at your house. But you don’t because you don’t have any children. When are you going to get some children so you will have cool toys?” How do you explain to a 5 year old that he is the love of my life and I don’t need any children of my own, because I get to share him and his brother! Simply amazing. :)
And not to leave Tyler, his 3 year old little brother out… While having a fun time with nerf dart guns, Tyler askes James to “load” his gun. And as James is telling him not to shoot yet, Tyler turns around and tries to fire at James point blank. Only challenge is – he had the nerf gun facing the wrong direction and shoots his own cheek! James falls to the ground laughing! Brothers!
And so – for more moments like that – I am proud to be an entrepreneur. I want to work harder than anyone else – for myself and my clients! I want to be able to show James and Tyler and my customers how amazing and awe-inspiring the world around us truly is.
I am an entrepreneur and a gypsy - and these are not bad words! :) I enjoy life and have found my happy place. I have the pleasure and honor of owning my own travel agency - so I get to help others discover the world and I get to explore more and more of it! And I love to laugh!! Enjoy!
