Twenty seven years ago, I met a girl named Michelle.  We’ve been friends ever since and seen each other through too many seasons of life to count.  Michelle is a nurse and chooses to travel in her career by picking up assignments every three to six months.

I’m so glad she’s a traveling nurse because it means that wherever she is I have somewhere to go.  But for just a few days, she came back to Dallas in between assignments and we had a few hours to spend with each other.  So, of course, I pulled out my podcast mic.  Why not?

Today’s podcast is basically a cackle session between two long-time friends with a little travel talk sprinkled in between mentions of magnesium, mountain climbing, the perils of hiking, and travel to Peru. The microphone sat on the corner of my kitchen table and I pressed record to capture an evening between friends. We talk about travel and how it affects your personal life, your spiritual life, and your outlook on life.

Be prepared to laugh, to hear a little cray-cray, and to wonder if we are both right in our minds.  We are — but we have been friends a long time and sometimes, friends just like to sit around and talk about a bunch of nothing. Well… a bunch of nothing with a bunch of travel talk mixed in.

Welcome… to Shellyland.


But don’t worry, next week I’ll be back to “normal” and I can’t wait to share some of my other friends with you.  In July we’ll be exploring real life She’s Still There stories.  The real life situations in which women realize the need they have to rescue the girl within.  You DO NOT want to miss my guest line up!

Stay tuned!!!
