15 Day Challenge Link-Up: Day 3

15 Day Challenge, Day 3!  Today's prompt: Discuss how you hope your future will be like.

Hmmm...I can honestly tell you that I've done next to no thinking about what the future might hold...I can barely picture one year into the future.  I can definitely tell you what I imagine though:  Tim and I climbing Maccu Piccu, riding camels to the Pyramids in Egypt, snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef, watching the sunset in Santorini, climbing Mt Kilimanjaro, and then sitting on the porch with Malena, Lindsey, Nicole, and all our significant others when we're 80 and living in linked townhouses on the beach somewhere.  Yup, gonna happen!

Other than that, I don't know what the future holds and frankly, I'm happy that I don't.  Who knows where I'll be in 10 years?  Maybe I'll be a journalist in Argentina, maybe I'll be leading digging excavations in Turkey, maybe I'll be traveling around as an accomplished writer, or perhaps I'll stay in Seattle for the rest of my life?  Whatever I do, I just hope that I'm proud of myself...and that I have fun.
I love this quote from Little Lion's Life's response to today's challenge:
"I don't really want to go into the cliched responses of "I just hope we're happy and healthy." I mean, obviously I want that. Who is going to sit around and say "Well, I really hope the future is filled with trips to the hospital, debt troubles, marital strife, and general misery"? Come on. So, I'm gonna go for the not-so-shallow-but-might-seem-that-way answer."
