Message of the day: Embrace Diversity.
We were on our way to a friend's house for our first Springtime get-together and pulled into a nearby town to get a coffee, that is until this place popped into my phone and intrigued me so we pulled over. This gem of a taqueria place served a delicious corned beef tacos in honor of St. Paddy's Day, and served a mean cup of coffee to boot. What captured me about this small, quaint, and on the artsy side are the signs, artworks, and fresh and tasty coffee that you don't expect at a taqueria. One friendly staff at the counter who served us and chatted with my husband about the heart written sign about coffee. Do you speak Spanish? The written message is fantabulous 😊.

What brings you joy?
This week I’ve been enjoying some much needed down time on the road with friends. The sites seen and experiences had have brought me so much joy. .
This workshop in particular stole my 🌈❤️. Look at that color explosion 😍
Joy is everywhere if you’re searching for it 🤗
Thankfully we managed to replenish our stock of the smaller vintage Japanese Kokeshi dolls on our last trip away as they'd all sold out so quickly! A whole range of shapes, sizes, and colours now available, from tiny to huge, and all individually hand painted and sign by the artist! Open as usual today (Saturday) 9-5pm 👍
The key is to see the beauty in everything...
You might not have guessed but this is not some cute wall I found while galavanting in a new city 🏙
This is the bathroom wall of a rundown southern Citgo gas station... ⛽️
No payment at the pumps
Dude catcalling me from his tinted sedan
No toilet paper or hope of cleanliness
I felt uncomfortable and out of place
So I put my tough girl face on and went to demand some well deserved TP 🧻 (The only downfall of being a optimally hydrates human is trips to the restroom)
What I got in return was a very sweet gentleman who quickly ran to retrieve me some toilet tissue and apologized sincerely... his smile lit up that whole place and I immediately felt at ease
He was the flower wallpaper in a world of rundown bathrooms 🌸
