Treasures on Tour

Just for fun, over the course of this past year on tour, I collected a list of the random things I learned from all the random people I've met across the country. Today I am going to share that list with you! I did this last year and thought it would be a great blogging tradition to do annually. I am aware that these kinds of posts might be more significant to me than you considering I have memories attached to these random facts, but I don't know. Let me know what you think about this post and if you found it interesting and entertaining?! I wonder if any of my dear tour friends or sponsors from all-over will recall discussing these topics/ introducing these random facts to me?! Note, I don't believe the geographical location in which I learned these random facts has any significance to the random facts themselves.

Did you know...
1. There is this AMAZING middle eastern spice called Za'atar, I must get my hands on when I visit Israel next month. It tastes AMAZING with a little cream cheese and avocado on a bagel. It is a must try! (Cape Coral, FL)
2. I learned the smart way to chop up a chopped salad is to throw all your salad ingredients into a metal mixing bowl and glide a pizza cutter along the bowl through your salad! Brilliant! (Jacksonville, FL)
3. Things to ingest that will help you remember: fish oil, beets, lemon, and matcha tea. Is anyone else going to try these? (McKinney, TX) 
4. Our company visited Wilmington, NC and it didn't take long for me to fall in love with it! I discovered that it is considered a downsized version of Hollywood, referred to as Hollywood East or "Willywood" by some of the locals. TV shows like "Dawson's Creek" and "One Tree Hill" were filmed there! (Wilmington, NC).  
5. Linsborg, Kansas is another place we visited that I fell in love with. It is known as Little Sweden of the USA; such a cute little town in Kansas, who knew we had a Little Sweden!? ( Linsborg, Kansas)
6. I learned that the phrase "When the almond tree blossoms" found in Ecclesiastes 12:5, is referring to hair turning grey! The verse has meaning!  (Somerset, KY)
7. I had the pleasure of meeting sand story artist Joe Castillo who taught me that people tend to remember 30 percent of what is heard, and 80 percent of what is seen! (Jackson, MS)
8. The back pockets of your pants is a VERY DANGEROUS place to keep your cell phone. (Knoxville, TN)


Oh, the places you'll go and the things you'll learn.
Here's to another year of discovery and adventure!
Thanks for stopping by!
