Hello all my 7 Quick Take readers I am back from my amazing trip to Europe!! My awesome friend Jen guest posted a few times for me and I was able to get some posts up while I was gone. I love this link-up because I have a lot of little things to update you guys on so…bare with me!!
So RIGHT before I left for Europe (literally 2 days before) I participated in in(Courage)‘s inRL event! I did it last year and it was a lot of fun. Friday night everyone viewed a live webcast on their computers and then on Saturday we all meet up inRL (in real life) all over the world. Like any blogger event there was a link-up and I shared my experience here.
Like I said earlier my friend Jen posted for me while I was gone. She answered my questions from my Liebster Award (which anyone is allowed to answer as I broke the rules!), she wrote about her cats (which I loved because I love cats!), and she wrote about Wisdom from C.S. Lewis. So make sure to go check out all her posts out.
While I was on my trip I managed to get 3 posts written. One was about getting there with some pictures from the plane. Another was about my Greece Adventures and the last one was from Rome, Italy and the adventures we had there.
I finally broke down and bought Kat’s Blog Planning Kit. I’ve been listening to her podcast since practically the beginning and have heard about it in EVERY podcast and thought oh maybe I should get it….but never did…and then last week in Amy Lynn Andrew’s useletter(which I highly recommend for TONS of blogging tips) last week had a 30% off code so I couldn’t resist the price. I haven’t gone through it all yet but it has this really nice brainstorming page and I already have over 10 posts to write….I guess I should get busy!!
So I had PERFECT timing with my trip to Europe and Jen’s #SOTG release and photo contests. I left at 8pm on Monday night and arrived in Frankfurt, Germany at 11am (4am EST) Tuesday morning just in time to download her book to my kindle app. And it’s seriously the first thing I did when I got connected to the wifi in the airport!
I had so much fun taking pictures with #SOTG all over Europe. I would have taken more but the sun and ebooks on ipads aren’t friends 🙁 Here are my pics:
First photo – Delphi, Greece. WAY out in the distance of this photo is the bay of Corinth (yes the Corinth from the bible). This was one of the most mountain scenes I’ve ever seen. This was our view at LUNCH.
Second Photo – Notre Dame Cathedral Paris, France. This picture was taken right after we left the cathedral for mass! The Gothic cathedrals are gorgeous and nothing like anything I’ve seen before. I really felt it was important to take a picture of #SOTG in front of Catholic things since it’s a catholic book…don’t ask me about my logic it just makes sense in my head.
Bonus* Another #SOTG reader was in Paris on the SAME day as I was! Small world (literally)
Third Picture – Rome, Italy (Vatican City). And last but not least a photo in front of one of the most Catholic places in the world, St. Peter’s Basilica. All those chairs are messed up from the Papal Audience that happenned earlier that day.
I need some prayers for direction…so much that I had a mass said for such when I was in Assisi, Italy. I’m back on the job hunt and so torn on where I should be location wise and what I should be doing and job searching is just NOT FUN.
Thank you, praying for all my wonderful readers!
