Locks of Love

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

So yesterday was Valentine’s Day or as most people like to call it Tuesday. Because yesterday was all about Love it reminded me of one of my favorite traditions in Europe where a couple will take a lock, write their name on it, lock it to a bridge, and throw the key in the river. The way I interpret this is it symbolizes that they will be together forever. Super Sweet! I found these little symbols all over Europe. I think I first fell in love with them in Paris on a bridge near the Louvre. It made me wish I was in Paris with that special someone so we too could take a lock, write our initials on it, and throw away the key locked together for all eternity (or until the city decided to come cut our lock off with a bolt cutter because the locks are becoming overwhelming). In Florence I found these locks everywhere not just on bridges. If there was a place near the river to place the lock there would be a group clustered together.
Here’s a link to Garance Dore speaking about the Locks. Hope you enjoy!

2011 Louisiana REALTORS Convention RECAP

2011 Louisiana REALTORS Convention RECAP.

I thought I would share this great information Nobu Hata presented at our Convention. I know a lot of you are looking for good apps to use and he went thru quite a few. You don’t have to be a REALTOR to find use out of most of these apps.

I will say I love instagram and postagram. Sent a friend who just got married a postcard with her picutre on it using postagram. She loved it!

Help Chas…

I ran across this article today in the Daily Candy. It’s about a 40 year old bachelor who is looking for his soul mate. He made a website and is offering the person who finds his soul mate for him $10,000 (they must get married for you to claim the prize). It’s a truly funny website and it just goes to show that he has a sense of humor. I guess I never thought of looking for love by offering a reward but I do have to say it is innovative. Check out Chas’s website and help him in his search for love!

What do you think of what Chas is doing? Would you ever do something like this for love? What is the craziest thing you have ever done for love?

It’s the little things

I had to drive 4 hours unexpectedly on Thursday from Baton Rouge to Shreveport, LA for work. We were having a class in Shreveport and I had to get the instructor from point A to point B.
We were staying at a local hotel that just happens to be a casino. I was a little leery and way tired by the time I got there. So I walked into the casino and was greeted by very loud Cajun music. I look over in the corner and there is this little old lady (looked around 80) with her walker. She is just going to town bopping up and down to the music. I have to say it was one of the cutest and funniest things I had seen in a long time. She was so happy to be there and dancing as best as she could.
It made me realize it really is the little things in life. I could have gone about the rest of my night and complained about being tired but just seeing how happy that lady was reminded me enjoy the small things in life!
