Last month someone told me about Geocaching. It's basically a treasure hunt using a GPS.  There is a free app so I put it on my phone and didn't think about it again.

{The Compass King}

Until yesterday!  We had time to kill mid-day so we went to a park.  I was using my phone to snap a few pictures when I remembered....the Geocaching app!

{Our First Find}

My Sonshine started looking them up and by sundown we made six treasure finding trips.  
We found two, learned that some are truly hidden and no matter what the outcome it's fun!

{Yes, even fun for mom}

We found trinkets and signed the log. 

{Signing the log at Find Two}

We've signed up at www.geocaching.com
 and decided on our own team name!  Let the hunts begin! 

{Findless was even fun}

Valentine's Day Mediation

February 14

Valentine’s Day

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥♥ ♥ ♥

Today is for lovers, and I want to be one. Not just of one person, that’s not enough – today, I want to be a lover of all humankind. To look at the great, bustling world around me and see the goodness there. I want to relish the difference in my clients, the variety that lives in each of us, the secrets of the soul and the heart, the joy and pain that set us apart from one another – yet bind us so tightly. Today, I want to love myself, warts and all. Today, no matter the provocation, I won’t think an unloving or unkind thought. I’ll refuse to be drawn into the petty meanness of office gossip or the misery of the news(paper). Let this be a step on my road to serenity. Today, I will be a lover.

Quotes about Friendship

I am learning to allow myself to have more depth in friendship.   I love quotes.  And I love friendship.  Perfect combination.

“Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: "What! You too? I thought I was the only one.”       C.S. Lewis

“A friend is someone who knows all about you and still loves you.”       Elbert Hubbard

“If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you.”       A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh
