This might not be completely accurate. I might have been to North Dakota, too, which would make it an even 50. We took a trip across the North when I was little. I've seen a picture of me in front of Mount Rushmore, so I know I was in South Dakota. My mother doesn't remember if we visited North Dakota as well, so I'm leaving that one blank for now as the only state left on my to-do list.

A few months ago, Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming were also question marks. I saw all three in September when the National Federation of Press Women held its conference in Idaho, so I've checked those off now for sure. And at the start of the year, Louisiana was the only southern state I was missing. Again, NFPW came to the rescue. The national board meeting was in Baton Rouge last spring, and I also managed a wonderful side trip to New Orleans.

NFPW actually held a conference in North Dakota just a few years ago, but I had a new baby and a sick husband and couldn't go. Maybe we'll plan a trip there next year, so I can reach my perfect 50.
