“Oh darling, let us be adventurers.”
I saw that quote recently in a gift shop and I fell in love with it. I think everyone shares that feeling to some degree.
One of the most important things I’ve learned in life is that money spent making memories will always be a better value than money spent buying “things.” Most of us can’t remember even a fraction of the things we loaded into shopping carts last year. But we all remember the feel of sand between our toes and the sound of crashing waves on the beach where we spent a week vacationing or just an afternoon building sand castles with the kids. We remember the fabulous little café we stumbled upon when we were lost in a foreign city. We remember weekend camping trips with the family. We don’t remember the “stuff.” But we always remember our adventures.Embed from Getty Images
Life at the WhackyShack is about having adventures and making memories whether your budget is big or small. Recycling, refurbishing, and reusing things I already have has become a way of life for me. It not only saves money that I can put toward memory making but it is good for the planet too.
I hope you’ll enjoy exploring the WhackyShack, its assorted topics and my random thoughts. If you’re a travel bug, arm chair or otherwise, you’ll want to visit the links section where you’ll find more in-depth travel writing at Sunny Sky Blue and Sunny Sky Blue Ohio.
But for now I’ll just say “Welcome to the WhackyShack.” I hope it’s only one stop on your own road to adventure.
