|Me at 18- drawn by an artist on the streets of Barcelona (man I could't understand one word he said but it was fun).|
|My chair is multicultural: a pillow from New Zealand and a blanket from Mexico|
Almost twenty years ago (ok, did I really just type that?) I went to Mexico for a high school trip. I bought a hand woven blanket. I watched the lady make the blanket and was able to then take it home. How neat is that? To this day we still use the blanket when we watch movies. It’s perfect to cuddle under and stay warm.
|squished pennies (my collection) from the World Trade Center- talk about an amazing souvenir!|
|Some of our cookbooks- once a week we pick our favorite recipes and celebrate a different place we have lived/visited|
|My doll made at Disney- she is looking a little rough but she has lots of love!|
|Bean's bear he made at VTF!|
Children will learn what you help them to learn and more importantly live by. Our memories are our true souvenirs or as well call them treasures. Each trip we go on we create a yearbook (photobook) and those are by far our favorite pieces, the children and I often sit and look at them. Each time we look at the books, we create more memories, we laugh about the things that have happened and share our favorite stories.
It is amazing to me how much my view of traveling and my money habits have changed with my perspective changing. I am a blessed woman, who continues to live in awe of our wonderful Lord and his blessings.
