"You’ll look up and down streets. Look ’em over with care. About some you will say, 'I don’t choose to go there.' With your head full of brains and your shoes full of feet, you’re too smart to go down a not-so-good street.
And you may not find any you’ll want to go down. In that case, of course, you’ll head straight out of town. It’s opener there in the wide open air."
- Dr. Seuss, Oh! The Places You'll Go!
I can't help but to smile every time I read a Dr. Seuss quote and the one above is from one of my favorite books that he wrote.
I've been a bit under the weather for the last couple of days so I haven't had a lot of energy to do much of anything, but I'm eager to share a project that I've been working on in the entryway of our home.
My husband and I love to travel. We've done quite a bit of international traveling over the years and we've both been very blessed to be able to do so thus far in our lives. Unfortunately, most of those trips have happened apart from one another. Don't worry, we're planning to change that pattern.
Well, I had an idea of finding some pictures that we took on our different trips, putting them in black and white, blowing them up to 11x14 size prints, and hanging them in our entryway. What better place to hang memories of the places we've been or plan to return than where we enter and leave your home? I didn't use pictures of every country or city we've visited (that would be nearly impossible), but I chose 4 pictures to represent some pretty memorable voyages we've taken in the last 3 years.
So all of these photos are now 11x14s and ready to be hung on the wall. Did I mention that with a special deal, I was able to get the prints 50% off? Trying to stay thrifty.
Here's a bigger look at the pictures I used for the project. Oh, and these were all taken with basic digital cameras- pretty cool, huh?
|Scott visited Greece with friends after he returned from a deployment. He said it was absolutely beautiful! I have other family members who've been and I'd love to visit someday soon.|
In the words of Dr. Seuss, "Today is your day. You’re off to Great Places! You’re off and away!" Where have you been or where are you planning to go? Please feel free to share!
Stay tuned to see how these will be hanging in the entryway.
