Motivation Monday- small town girl, big city dreams.

 Hello! How was your weekend? It was a little chilly here but the sun was out in full effect this weekend.  My husband and I enjoyed some quality time, we had chocolate covered donuts, treated ourselves to cafe au laits, and  we took our little dogs on a couple of extra long walks. 
 In fact  little Winston gave up half way through the walk and laid down and said no more! Well he said no more with his sweet large bulging puppy eyes.
I want to show you this picture.  This picture I took when I was in Turkey this summer and it was at the amphi theatre in Ephesus.  There is a temple of Artemus and it is considered one of the 7 wonders of the ancient world.  It was once a Greek City and then a Roman City, and is even mentioned in the bible.
Well first of all is was really HOT that day, over 100 degrees and I was melting and walking around the ruins.  :)  So my husband and I climbed on top of this amphi theatre and we looked out and it was a moment that I will never will forget.  It's a moment were you realize how large the world is and how small you are.
I often think being from a small city like Portland, that my dreams seem so big and far away.  One of the big reasons why I started a blog was to meet new friends beyond Portland.  I often think that I need to think beyond my small city and realize everything isn't so far away.  It's all with in my finger tips.
Happy Monday :) Creative thoughts you way.  It's official I have the green light on my project and I will announce tomorrow.  Woohoo!

I think it's hard for people to understand that there's more going on in the world than what they see. Great post!

A friend of mine recently told me that we ourselves limit our dreams- anything is possible- which is what this post made me think of.

Can't wait to hear about your project!
