Providence Canyon!

John and I hiked Providence Canyon recently and had an amazing time. About 3 hours outside of Atlanta, it's a great day trip. We're headed back for when the leaves change.

I was in Montreal recently and although my understanding is that the city is safe, I was either pickpocketed or a good samaritan found my wallet but forgot to mail it back to me.  Either way, it's gone.  

A few recommendations when you have a spare 10 minutes.
  1. Take an inventory of your wallet now
  2. Toss out old, expired items you don't need
  3. Record every single thing you plan on keeping from your AAA card to major credit cards
  4. Record the correpsonding US and International phone numbers for each card
  5. Document your driver's license number and expiration date
  6. Save this file if you feel comfortable or print it and leave it in a safe place in your home
  7. Make a copy of your driver's license and car insurance (if you keep that in your wallet)
  8. Oh and don't even think about carrying your social security card in your wallet.  That should stay at home!
Doing these steps now will prevent you from having to rack your brain when something happens.  Everything is in one place when need it.

Trust me.  It's worth spending the time.


Couple on Vespa

I ordered this print from le papier studio for my husband for Valentine's Day.   While I think it ultimately turned out really well, it was really hard to find a frame.  The description said the print measured 5x7.  There was no way it would have fit into a 5x7 frame as it was way too long.  Also, even if it did, there was too much white space on the sides.  I went with the 5x5 frame below and am hapy with how it turned out.  The frame is from Sam Flax.  It was the last one of its kind- it didn't even have a box anymore.

I've actually had a hard time finding frames for the etsy prints I've ordered recently.  Two sets of prints from different dealers required 8.5 x 11 frames.   Cute frames of this size are not easy to find.  I wish etsy dealers would consider sizing their images so they fit standard sized frames well.

Inauguration Day

Words cannot express what today means.  I am deeply thankful for Obama for so many reasons.
