Valentine’s Day: Things I Love But Probably Shouldn’t

Valentine’s Day: Things I Love But Probably Shouldn’t

The Gift of a Grass Heart given to me by my friend Ping of the Muong people, in Sapa, Vietnam

Valentine’s Day is a day of love. So I am dedicating this post to all things I love. but probably shouldn’t. 

#1 – Animals that are bigger than me, that can eat me, or just want to spit on me. I lure them in with food and my excellent coaxing skills. Then I latch on and I’m never letting GO!

#2 – Playing Hide-and-Go-Seek in, on, near, or as close as the velvet railing will let me, to anything ancient, one-of-a-kind, precious, or crumbling. Sometime’s I get lost and potentially hurt myself but it is not my fault. I loved the game as I child and I love it today.

3# – Sticking my Face where it doesn’t belong. No I am not referring to butting into other people’s lives, this is a literal statement; I stick myself into things. A lot.

#4 – Flinging myself off of things that are really high up but that I am firmly buckled into. I like to know that I am still young & dumb enough to do it.

#5 – Saying Goodbye to Canada. Whenever I say goodbye it means adventure’s and exotic places ensue. This is much preferred to the freezing winters of Canada – and I just don’t like wearing pants ok?

  1. Elephant kisses look more like double elephant punches to the face!! Love it!

  2. That zip line looks incredible. Of the pictures thus far, I think that makes me most jealous.

    Also, elephant picture is downright amazing. You look like such a happy lady.
