    Does Mexico count as a foreign country? It's the only place I've been to out of the US



    I begged DH to get it for me because it was kinda a lot of money but I love it so much, don't know why.

    Nope, not a plate. It's inside a glass container thing. About the size of my hand so pretty small but heavy

    That's a tough one: I got a scarf in Netherlands w/ tulips printed on it.

    Got a beer stein from Germany w/ the different shields/coat of arms symbols of the different regions/counties of Germany.

    Or the dishes and spoonrest I got in Paris

    My friend brought me back a hand painted leather bookmark that looks like a giraffe from kenya (I love giraffes!)....so that, and a little jewelry box another friend brought me from India.
    I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so you can learn to let go.
    Things go wrong so you can appreciate them when they're right.
    You believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself.
    And sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

    It's a little shot glass, shaped like a mini Guinness glass. My husband got it for me on his way to Iraq when they stopped in Ireland. I collect shot glasses and I'm half Irish. I thought it was so sweet that on his way to freakin' war, he was thinking of me and thought to pick up something he knew I'd love

    Awe. I don't know... Probably my hand painted paintings from Greece in Santorini. DH got me a new tea set from Korea... and my Dad got me a silk robe from Vietnam.

    I think I travel too much. I can't decide. I love my Murano necklace from Venice and my crucifix from Rome a lot too.
