Somewhere on the Map

So I have a world map in my room in between my bed and my closet. I see it every night before I go to bed and I see it every time I open my closet. It is a reminder to myself that is a lot of ground I want to cover before I die . . .the reminder to travel often.

When I was young girl we used to get National Geographic Magazines in the mail and 25% of the books on the shelves were NatlGeo Books. I grew up pouring over the maps similar to the one that hangs on my wall. It always gave me two things–beautiful pictures and places to dream about.

Just a few days ago I was staring at my map again–wondering what some places must be like and if fate made the choice–where would I go next. Just like that I decided to close my eyes and see where my finger pointed me toward next.

Below are 5 places that I have been pointed toward and a National Geographic article to get the ideas flowing about the country I seem destined to visit.

Where would you like to go?

  1. Tanzania

  2. Ecuador

  3. Myanmar (Burma)

  4. Bosnia and Herzegovina

  5. Brazil

A Platter of . . .

So I hate seeing pictures of perfectly arranged food platters . . .it makes the food look AMAZING! And we all know that when the food looks amazing you just need to eat the food.  I also decided that sometime soon I need to get on the food platter bandwagon just to test the theory about the food tasting better when served in a picturesque way.

Here are 5 renditions that I feel I can support and use as ideas for my own tastes. What do you guys think of food platters?

Just Smile

Can I just tell all of you how much I love the people in my life? They make me smile and buoy me up to keep going every day with renewed energy. This week was no different when a friend sent me a couple of quotes that not only made me smile but they also made me chuckle out loud as well.

We should all be that friend in the lives of those that we touch. I am going to be that friend for each of you now. Here are 5 signs on Pinterest that made me smile and chuckle out loud. Love each of you!!
