In the US they call these bath bombs (this photo was taken of the UK site). You place one in the bath water! It is great for the skin and it smells amazing! They also have shower bombs, which is what I use, and it truly gives you an amazing bathing experience!
spy on those that walk across their path
display love, playfulness, anger, joy, sorrow…my soul
ache with weariness commencing hours of study
close to craft a moment of euphoric escape from unhappiness
lock into memory cherished moments
To those whom are in pain:
I am right there with you. I feel pain too. “What if’s” do not heal. They bring pain. Try to focus on now. Accepting today for today; knowing life is a blink of the eye. Hold on to those you love. Try to love them more every day. Keep praying. And don’t give up!
Your shipmate, Katie

Grace and I. We stayed with Grace at her families home. She is such an amazing girl and was such a blessing! Thank you Grace for showing me such a wonderful time in NYC.
The NYPD blocked off the streets leading to the bridge where we needed to go to see the fireworks. They were trying to mainstream the crowds. So, we thought we would sneak through a parking lot. Well, it had a fence. We decided to crawl through the fence. We were one of the first through. Then a mob built. The NYPD came. We left.
NY City Fireworks.
The fireworks were even better because they were reflected on the buildings! It was like we were surrounded with fireworks.
I kept thinking how mighty she looks!
Shoes worn by a child in Ellis Island.
This was one the first views of Lady Liberty that I had. She is something to behold!
Did you know that she is only two pennies think?
The Great Hall of Ellis Island. This room holds so much history. Truly the historical Welcome Center for the US.
I am so proud to be a US American.

As I walked through Ellis Island I couldn't help but think of how many people have walked on these tiled floors. How each of them had a story. Each of them had so many dreams.
Let's just say...it was a crazy busy and super fun trip!
