Where We've Been.

A few months ago, I got this idea for a U.S.A. travel challenge: visit each of the 50 states in turn, and while there, buy a t-shirt with the state's name on it, take a picture wearing the shirt in said state, amass an awesome 50-picture collage of our adventure.  

Now do I need 50 more t-shirts?  Of course not, but I say it's a small price to pay to fully embrace this great nation of ours.  I don't plan to put a time limit on it, at least not yet, as I think a lot of the fun of the final product (beyond the memories of course) will be seeing us through the years.  

I came across the above print from This Paper Shop (a lovely little online stationery store) this week, and it gave me the motivation to accept in writing the challenge I had dreamed up back in the spring: it's on!  Lucky C, he gets to go along for the ride ;)

Have you ever done something similar?  Or thought about it?  Tell me!

  3. so cute! love this idea. and how fun to keep track of it. my bff from HS and her fiance have a world map on an easel with one color pin for where they've been and another color for where they want to go.

  4. Oh that is such a great idea! I feel like that'll hold them accountable (for lack of a better word) to their travel goals too - I know I'd be itching to be able to switch out the colors

  5. We pick up a postcard and put the date and what we did / why we were there on the back. They're all thrown into a bowl that sits in our foyer. We also have a map in our office with 3 colors of push-pins - red for where I've been, blue for where the boy has been, and yellow for places we've been together. I love that yellow is taking over!!

  6. Oh those are awesome traditions! Now I want to do those too ;)


thanks so much for the note! i love reading your comments. xo. di.
