The End of Winter 2019

I have made it out of first quarter 2019 and survived. Not only did I survive but I actually had fun while doing it.

Here is a look back. Enjoy!

What is Currently Playing

Is anyone else super excited that it is officially springtime? I went to work this week . . . LEAVING THE JACKET BEHIND!! Yay for warmer weather!

So this week I am sharing with you guys 5 songs that are currently playing in my music rotation. Hope you enjoy!

What songs have caught your attention lately?

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?
