In case you hadn’t figured it out, let me tell you, I like to travel. I also like to buy souvenirs. Just like the French word it comes from, they help me remember the trip. But I really don’t like the typical plastic keychain, spoon, shot glass type of souvenir. I have a charm bracelet so I often buy a charm. I also like to buy other types of jewelry so that I can use what I buy. Plus I love it when people compliment my earrings and I get to say, "Oh thanks, they’re from Rome."
I’m going to try something new for my travels as a nurse. I am going to buy art. I love the look of a home with eclectic art almost like a gallery where the pieces don’t have to match. So I hope buying art all over the country will help me achieve non-boring walls.
When I was in Charleston visiting family in June, I found what I thought I would buy when I went back there, at the Spoleto Festival. But my super-cute Dad bought it for me for my birthday (a bit early).
