Case of the Giggles

This has been circulated on every social media platform in the past few days, but I thought I'd still share it because it made me laugh HARD after an incredibly loooong day. Enjoy!

Looking for Signs

Sometimes I have a thought about something I want to do or buy or somewhere I want to visit and I suddenly get all these indications that tell me to just DO IT.

It can be as simple as contemplating which movie I want to see and then seeing an ad for one that is in the running. Obviously I will go to that one.

I have an idea of a place I want to visit in the Spring. It started off as, "This sounds like a cool city AND it's safe". Then it transitioned to, "Wow, another photo on Pinterest of it....Oh! Someone I follow on Twitter is there...A reader emailed to comment on a post and they LIVE there". 

Now I have no doubt that it's where I'll go. Of course, I still manage to make it difficult by over-analyzing soccer schedules (I always try to go to a game when visiting another country) and contemplating dates. It doesn't matter WHEN I go, I know I'll love it. Yet, I need to torture myself a bit. 

The wanderlust is starting to poke through again...

Movie: The Hundred Foot Journey

I FINALLY went to see The Hundred Foot Journey last weekend and I was delighted by it. It's such a sweet storyline that includes food and love -- my two favourite things!

The scenery is uh-mazing. I did some research afterwards and discovered the town I fell in love with is actually Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val in Southwest France. I definitely need to get back there!

And, of course, the love story is just the sweetest....

Have you seen The Hundred Foot Journey? Let me know what you think!
