Today is Six Places and anytime I think about going anyplace I think about Dr. Seuss

You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself 
any direction you choose.
You're on your own. And you know what you know.
And YOU are the guy who'll decide where to go.
Oh,The Places You'll Go! ~Dr. Seuss

1).  Home is the place where, when you have to go there, they have to take you in. - Robert Frost
I don't know about the rest of you, but mom and dad's place is really still home when I think about it.

The backside of the house I grew up in.
2).  Love begins at home, and it is not how much we do... but how much love we put in that action. - Mother Theresa
My own house, which is slowly becoming home as we remodel, make memories and watch the minions grow up there.
Formal Dining Room set with my Grandmother's China and my crystal.

3).  Washington, DC is to lying what Wisconsin is to cheese. - Dennis Miller
I love D.C.  There is so much to see and do there, from museums and art to little hole in the wall eateries and people watching.
Washington Monument, before the earthquake.
4).  "I need a vacation to recover from my vacation" - said everyone, always.
Your last vacation is always one of your favorite places.  The memory is fresh and chances are you did at least one thing that was a lot of fun.

Mount your whales, we ride at dawn!
Deep Creek Lake, MD
5).  There's a lot of fantasy about what Scotland is. - Sean Connery
Out of all the places I've been, it's by far one of my favorite.  There's a certain wildness and peace to the entire country.  The people are lovely, the food is horrendous (or good if you're smart enough to get what I did) and every day is a new adventure.

Eilean Donan - there was a drought the year I was there.
Hence the lack of water.

6).  Yes, we’ll gather at the river, The beautiful, the beautiful river; Gather with the saints at the river, That flows by the throne of God. - Robert Lowry
I know I covered Scotland as a whole, but until you've seen Inverness, you've really not seen Scotland.  Its considered a city because of the cathedral, yet the size of a small town.

Cathedral Church of St. Andrew along the River Ness,
taken from Inverness Castle.

These are my places.  The places I most want to be, or the places I think of most often.  
What places do you think about?

  1. I love how you did a quote for each one! Beautiful and creative! I hope to make where I currently live home away from my parents home soon. There is nothing like feeling at home!

  2. Loved the Dr. Seuss quote in the beginning--I was totally thinking that the whole time I was putting my post together. Loved all the other quotes for each place too :)
