The Difference

Whenever I travel to T's hometown of Hazleton, PA, as I did a couple of weeks ago, there are several things that remind me Dorothy-style that "we're not in L.A. anymore."

Here are some examples of what you'll find in abundance there...

Adorable welcoming signs in the flower beds....

Light softly spilling in through sheer and lacy curtains...

Sweet cutlery....

Lace doilies (really!)
Picture frames, lined up in tidy rows (and yes that is little T in the background).... I won't mention that you don't find many couples celebrating anything near their 25th anniversary here....oh wait, I just did...

Mirrors galore...


Tiny dogs that only look innocent. Note the roving eye. (if I had a nickel for every time I softly said "ooooh Rudy, if you were my dog...")

Familial collegiate pride:

And my favorite, flowers and greenery galore! Oh how I miss that dappled sunlight!

Today's whiteboard quote:
"I am learning to write and speak of my true feelings for myself, that's how I can let go sooner and love fuller. It's a mixture of speaking up and speaking in, reaching out and reaching in."

every time i go to the mountains i am always amazed how quiet it is, and that i can see the milky way, and that i can literally be disconnected from the world and not care one bit!!

glad you had fun, luv!

i love all of these photos...since moving to the east...or rather south...i have been taken aback by HOW different it is from the west coast...like polar opposites!
