Showing love in different ways…

IMG_5734

My hubby was out of town at a convention and the lawn needed mowing.  He normally takes care of all of that but  I decided to mow it for him so he wouldn’t have to deal with it when he got home.  It was hot.  And it took a while but I got it done.  And it was a way to show my husband that I love and appreciate him.  It is not a typical way to show someone that you love them but it can be an effective one.  And, it definitely helped me appreciate what he contributes to the relationship!

The Fremont Troll

One of my favorite websites (and apps) is RoadsideAmerica.com.  I love visiting odd and unusual roadside attractions and the website has tons of them!

I’ve visited the Freemont Troll before but it’s always fun to see.  Have you ever been?  Do you have any pics?  What things do you like to see when you visit a city?

The Gum Wall in Seattle

This might be gross for some but I think it is awesome.

All these pieces of gum represent folks that have put a piece of gum in their mouth, chewed it for a bit and then stuck it on this wall.

Okay.  Maybe it is a little gross.  But we did it too.

Awwwww – he made the letters M and L.  Our initials.  That’s pretty much true love, right?

A Visit To 1912 Pike Place

I’ve visited Seattle several times but this time I was making a point to visit 1912 Pike Place.

Without googling, do you know what this place is?  Can you guess?  I mean if you know me and know what I drink most mornings….was that a big enough hint?

Yes.  I made a trip to my hot chocolate motherland.  Now I know Starbucks didn’t invent my hot chocolate but it is oh so good there!!

There was a bit of a line to get in but it moved quickly enough.  I got up to the counter and was able to order my venti hot chocolate. 🙂

I don’t know the girl in the background but I am sure that she enjoyed the whole Starbucks experience too!  haha!!  Have you ever visited the original store?

Hide and Seek

My grandson loves to play hide and seek.

So every time we visit we play.

But this last time it got me to thinking about my goals and dreams.  Am I hiding from my dreams or seeking them out?

My ideas may seem silly to many but honestly I always want to live my life expressing myself creatively and to not waste time worrying about what others think.  So I will continue to make my YouTube videos, take my outfit of the day pics and just post about my awesome life because it makes me happy.  I hope that you do the things that make you happy.  Don’t hide from happiness and the things that contribute to it.  Seek it out.
