My roommate Chick has challenged me with a weekly Aussie scavenger hunt. My first assignment was to find a garden gnome & it has not been easy. After searching the city of Sydney high & low - even asking in shops (resulting in some strange looks) - I found it when I was least expecting. We stopped for brekkie (breakfast) in a Blue Mountain town & walking thru the park I almost couldn't believe my eyes! Found!! Not one, not two, but 5 gnomes (didn't take pics of all of them) complete with pointy hats! I know they're 2D but com'on, this has got to count. :)
I'm a southern girl living in Los Angeles. I just got back from 4 months backpacking Australia on my own. I'm an artist, a wanderer, and a daydreamer. I crave security and adventure, and I'm trying to let go & let things be. I over-think and I over-feel; I'm logical & emotional & all sorts of lovely human contradictions. This blog is my way of reminding myself how many things in my life are wonderful, and keeping grateful for them.
