We love this video because it serves us as a great reminder for how short and precious life really can be. Watching it reminded us both of our own bucket list and think about how many of those items we have been able to cross off. We always appreciate something that make us reflect on our life and helps direct us in the direction of our goals. Let this beautiful video of a 4 year old in Africa accomplish his bucket list and ask yourself how far down your own list you have to go. Maybe it will inspire you go out and cross an item you’ve always wanted to do this weekend.
New bracelet up on the store today called “Live”. Check it out in the photos below and on our store at lootb.com!
I don’t think I could live in Europe permanently, but it’s definitely a nice place to visit and I had a great time. Here are a few of the little things that I’m going to miss about Europe while I readjust to life at home here in the States:
(Some of these items are pretty specific to the cities that I visited in the Baltic Sea region. Some aren’t specific to Europe necessarily and can apply to many countries abroad.)
Smoked salmon all the time
Being near the sea
Friendly Scandinavian people
Reading non-English signs
Drinking soda made with real sugar
Juxtaposition between a 1-year-old building and a 1000-year-old building
How a building is “modern” if it is primarily covered in glass
Cities claiming to be “the Venice of the North” (I visited 3)
Seeing TV adverts for Game of Thrones while I watch HomeImprovement
Throwbacks to medieval and feudal history in general
Bullet holes in scorched stone & brick walls
Royal seals and emblems
Histories of royal families
Dining al fresco
Dusting off my 6 years of French “skillz”
I had a lot of fun, and these are just a few of the little things that made my vacation spectacular. I hope I can go back someday.
My computer’s motherboard zonked out on me this past weekend. @_@
I really hope I can fix it, but I should be able to salvage my hard drive. Whichever happens, I will be uploading the rest of my photos from my vacation ASAP (I still have to upload Stockholm, Copenhagen, Paris, and my last few days in London).
THEN I will finish up the blog posts for all the cities. I will write all fast and furious until they are done so that they aren’t looming over my head as the weather starts getting really cold.
In the mean time, please recover quickly, computer! D:
