I am participating in a class with Ali Edwards through Big Picture Classes called 31 Things. Every day includes a word, writing prompts, dig deeper prompts, a writing tip, and a photo challenge. In addition to the prompts, templates for a physical album and/or digital album are included. I am creating a digital album and plan to share the results here for the next 31 days.

some fun facts about transportation and me…
I drive a Subaru Forester. A silver Subaru Forester. I love my Subaru. Every time I am ready to trade in my car, I get a new Forester.
My husband, a die-hard JEEP guy when we first met, has converted. He now drives a Subaru Outback.
However, my transportation of choice is my own two feet. A couple years ago, the Village Hall moved two blocks away from our house and brought with it a beautiful walking/biking trail. My feet have been itching to hop off the treadmill and onto those paths. They are hoping the groundhog will be on their side.
My bicycle is a close second choice. It has a bell and a basket. That is tough to beat.
The first time I ever rode a train, it was in New York City.
Even though I have lived in the suburbs of Chicago most of my life and went to college in the city, I have never been on a train in Chicago.
My first plane trip was when I was 7 years old, to Disney World. My most recent plane trip was to visit Nancie Atwell’s Center for Teaching and Learning in Maine several years ago.
I prefer road trips to air travel.
