If we live truly, we shall see truly. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Not everyone wants to travel the world, but most people can identify at least one place in the world they’d like to visit before they die. Where is that place for you, and what will you do to make sure you get there?

I’ve been lucky enough to do a lot of traveling in my life so far, so the place I really want to get to before I die is not really that far away. I want to go to St. Anne, Illinois. This is the small town were my mom and uncles grew up with my Grandpa Bill and Grandma Jean. I have fond memories of their house, the soft “up north” grass, and the fireflies, which I am not sure I’d ever seen before. None of my family lives there anymore, but I think it’d be fun to travel there, with my mom if possible, when my daughter is a little older and let her Grandma show her around the town where she grew up.
