If you’ve been following this blog at all you already know that I’m a photographer.
I love taking photos and quite often the only camera I have with me is my phone.
Recently I’ve taken lots of pictures with my phone and added them to this blog:
Moments That Take Your Breath Away
Walk On The Beach
So if you have someone in your life that takes lots of pictures with their phone…here’s a link to some ideas of some great gifts to get them.
Ok…I went shopping yesterday and I did great.
My Prince Charming husband’s gifts are wrapped and under the tree. I have exactly 5 gifts.
However, I don’t have any spectacular bows yet.
Remember, that’s part of this game.
Rules this year are:
*5 gifts under the tree.
*Keep within the set dollar amount
(I actually came in $5 under)…(a Christmas miracle!)
*and every gift must have a spectacular bow.
So, I’m asking for help.
Does anyone know how to make spectacular, unique and gorgeous bows?
Any tips for me?
My Prince Charming husband and I play a stupid game every year for Christmas.
We’ve finally decided on the rules for this year.
We’ve set our amount of money. Which is pretty small considering our circumstances currently, but that’s ok.
Rules of this game this year are that all my gifts are to be travel related. All of his gifts are to be cooking related.
There must be 5 gifts under the tree and all of them must have awesome bows!
I don’t know how I’m going to do with the bow part…but I think I have the rest of the gifts figured out.
Wish me luck.
Are you doing anything fun and special for Christmas?
Looking to go somewhere fun this year for the holiday?
This list gives you the best places to go.
So far, I’ve only been to New York for Christmas…but if I had to pick one place on this list to go, it would for sure be New York.
Lights, decorations, music, ice skating.
It’s beautiful, fun and magical.
Here’s an article that talks about how traveling makes you awesome!
I couldn’t agree more.
Nelson Mandela passed away.
He was a true beacon for peace even after everything that happened to him.
I started thinking after I heard the news about how much I complain about my current life situation.
Lousy job, hours being cut, loooooooooooooong commute, no time for a life, lack of finances, lack of insurance…etc, etc, etc….blah, blah, blah.
Then I started thinking about what Nelson Mandela went through.
Also what Pope John Paul went through to still become the men they became.
They became people that despite all the horrors they went through they forgot themselves and only searched out beauty, forgiveness and peace.
I began to cry at my own selfishness.
Today I will (again) attempt to find happiness wherever I can find it.
Remember that life is beautiful….and worth living.
I have always wanted to go to Vienna.
I haven’t actually been yet…but you know how it is.
It’s on the list.
Researching travel I came across an interesting article about saving the historic coffee houses of Vienna.
Now I love coffee and when I go to Vienna you can be sure I will go to each and every one of these old coffee spots and enjoy.
You should too next time you’re there.
Just put it on the list.
