Looking For The New

Looking For The New

One thing I love about moving to a new country is all of the new.  New sites.  New tastes.  New cultures.  There is so much to draw inspiration from!  So that is what this week is about.  I have purchased some notebooks and have some cultural experiences planned and I intend to take my camera along for each step…


What are your plans for this week?



P.S.  Mom, if you are reading this, I stole one of your Sharpie pens.  I know you hate when people steal your pens and this is one of your favorites.  Forgive me! :)


~My mother just emailed me: “I knew I recognized that pen!”



  1. Wonderful! That is an absolute must when I am travelling and whenever we moved (so much) I always carry my sketchbook and notepad, it definitely helps. Good luck on capturing inspiration and memories from your new locale. :)

  2. All the new must be so exciting! Go explore and share with us! :)

  3. Love this too! What a great idea. I do the same thing. . .though I probably have too many notebooks to count. . .come to think of it. . .I should consolidate:) Love that little note to your mom. . .love her email just as much:)

    Plans for this week? The girls are in VBS and playing the last of their basketball games. This weekend I’m hoping to see Bella play a bit of soccer and go visit with my bestie and see her new house and pool. It should be a busy and fun time!

  4. I love it! I can’t wait to see what you record and discover…it’s always exciting to see a blank notebook, no matter where you are, and even better when you’re having a brand new adventure…so excited for you :)

  5. This is a wonderful idea! This is why I love to take pictures now – it’s capturing a memory and an experience.

    I wanted to say hi because I’m meeting with Cheryl of Oh to Be a Muse and she mentioned you are in Singapore! I hope you’re staying cool in this perpetually hot city!
