I wanna hang a map of the world in my house. Then I'm gonna put pins into all the locations that I've traveled to. But first, I'm gonna have to travel to the top two corners of the map so it won't fall down.
We don’t have a map in our house with pins poking out. Instead, we have magnets stuck to the fridge.
The first year Tim and I were married we decided to document, magnetically, our travels. We don’t smoke, so ashtrays were out. We don’t drink so there went the shot glass souvenirs. You can only get so many keychains before they rip your pockets or make you sound like Captain Kangaroo on the run. And really, who can afford $25 a t-shirt for everyone in the family?
We proudly announce the newest members of our fridge family: magnets from Leavenworth, Snoqualmie Falls, Space Needle, and Forks, all in Washington. Other attractions that we visited also sold magnets, but we tried to keep our purchases to a minimum. You can’t eat a magnet.
Enjoy the photos of the beautiful Pacific Northwest!
