Mothers Day

Gifts mean a lot to me. Like a lot.It can be a flower/weed you picked on the side of a sidewalk or a $5 Starbucks card. With that said I wasn’t expecting a mothers day gift but Trav came through and surprised me with one.  🙂


Have I mentioned that I collect tea pots? This one is very special.

13927008728.jpgThis belonged to an old woman who traveled the world. And as she visited different cultures and cities she brought her own (this) tea set with her. This is a tea set that has tasted and traveled the world and for the romantic part in me… I had no control. I had to buy it.

Thanks for visiting! I'm a happy mom and wife who loves the smell of books, traveling and food. I like dreaming about alter egos, snuggling with Emma and going on dates with hubby,Travis. Pretty much anything creative I'm into. I hope you enjoy my rants and raves and come back soon. Oh, and I love comments so please feel free to let me know what you think!
