A while ago Dave gave me a subscription to this magazine.
Because he's sweet like that and he knows how I love to travel. I think maybe he thought just looking at pictures would cool down my drooling to see those places in person.
But I have to admit it might have made it worse.
Now I can picture even more where I want to go. I mean, who wouldn't want to be here?
...and stay in a place like this?
In my dreams, this place is where I wanted to go for my fortieth birthday:
Who wouldn't, right?
(Instead I was snuggling five kids drinking in the goodness of being with my family which really is just as good in my book...maybe I'll aim for Greece when I turn fifty...)
And doesn't it look dreamy to bike around Italy with this cute mustached guy below?
I've always wanted to go to Bali. But "beyond Bali"?? I want to go there too:)
Yeah, some day.
But for now I'll remember "life is long," and how darn lucky I am to be right here, right now.
Some links that may interest you:
Power of Moms is doing a photo contest for the cover of a book about motherhood I got to contribute to. For more information the link is here.
This family could use any extra prayers at this time.
My parents are finally selling the house that we grew up in that's chock-full of family memories and has a gorgeous view of Salt Lake City. We are all pretty sad about that little fact so rather than listing it they have decided to just do a little website about it to find some great family who can make it theirs and make their own tangible family memories there. The link is here if you know anyone who may be interested.
And last but not least, my sweet friend is doing a "Mother's Book of Secrets" give-away on her blog. Click here for that.
