This Year's Favorite Things!

These are a few of my traveling baskets! Wait until you see my collection of traveling totes!! When we travel there are different baskets for different parts of the trip. Picnic basket for the room by the highway. I take my own coffee maker and Grand Marnier.  A picnic basket for roadside dinning. The rest areas, off the interstate, are actually very nice stops along the way. Of course there is a basket for snacks inside the truck. Apples, waters, ice teas and cookies help keep the driver fortified while speeding along!

How bout that hand carved and hand painted lady bug brooch? We try to stop at Money's Folk Art, off I 75, on our road trips. Always find something that cannot be found anywhere else. It is a stop where imagination rules in the hills of Kentucky.

This years tree was magic. We rolled into town, early in the afternoon, and Steve makes a beeline to buy a Christmas tree. The tree farm was running out and Steve snagged one of the last to be had! Of course it is a perfect fit. All the ornaments and lights came out and wrapped themselves around the branches! Now if they would just put themselves away!!

The last day to reflect on what it means to travel and visit all the favorite spaces, in time, for this year. 

Happy New Year to all.
 God Bless you and yours in the year to come.
