Eat, Pray, Love?

 I hope that you've enjoyed reading about my adventures in Italy and Haiti this summer.  As August begins, I find myself reflecting on my summer.
I've had the opportunity to eat...

And I've had the opportunity to pray...

I'm still waiting for the love portion of the "Eat, Pray, Love" equation to happen. 
Where is my Javier Bardem?  I've been waiting all summer to meet my tall, dark, and handsome prince.  Ok, I'll be honest: I've been waiting 30+ years to meet my very own tall drink of water!  

While I didn't enjoy every part of Eat, Pray, Love, I think we all were swept away in the decadent and sometimes painful journey Elizabeth Gilbert allowed us to share with her in her 2006 novel and 2010 film starring the lovely Julia Roberts and aforementioned Bardem.  

I'd like to think that I am on my own exciting and amazing journey.  Lately, it seems to have more than its' fair share of pit stops, dead ends, and disasters. But it is my journey, and I know that everything will work out the way it should in the end.  Will I meet my own Bardem?  Who knows?  I surely hope so, but we don't have any guarantee of romantic love in this life.  For now, I'm going to try my best to focus on the love I share with my family and friends.  You never know...maybe my very own soul mate is on his personal journey searching for me along the way.

This is a fantastic post and something I can completely relate to with my journey abroad in Spain. "Romantic Love" will find you. :) Sending you lots of prayers and best wishes that you recognize him when he comes. :) Gina
