This week’s Tunes Tuesday pick is Ramble On by Led Zeppelin, who may just be my favorite band of all time. I chose this song this week because I am heading out of town for a 40th birthday and five year anniversary celebration vacation to Europe!
I will be gone for the next two weeks, so this post is meant to keep you occupied while I’m out. I will honestly miss all of you when I am gone and I may even peek in from time to time to see what is happening in your worlds. But for the most part, I will be eating chocolate croissants and tapas and drinking sangria and champagne…and taking pictures!!
What do you think? Do you have any suggestions for must-do unique activities in Barcelona, Paris, Amsterdam or Berlin? Have you taken any special trips to celebrate a milestone? What is your favorite memory from that trip?
I will include the Tunes Tuesday lyrics below, but I first wanted to acknowledge some awards I have received over the past month. My hope is that while I am gone, readers will take time to visit the great blogs who have honored me with awards and to visit the blogs I am passing awards on to. I promise, you will not regret taking the time to do this!

Most of the awards require that I tell things about myself that people don’t know. So, here goes:
1.) I just cut my hair pixie-short. I do this about every 10 years.
2.) I never took a math class in college.
3.) I love cookbooks, but I really don’t cook at all.
4.) I have lived in 5 states and the District of Columbia.
5.) Moves have been easier for me when I moved for a life-priority and not for a job.
6.) I love Fall and everything associated with it, as you can see from the photos here.
7.) I have always wanted to be a Peace Corps volunteer and still think I may when I am older.
8.) I have a photography exhibit at a local Boulder restaurant in October!!
9.) I love mashed potatoes – have I mentioned this before? It’s pretty important for anyone who knows me to understand this fully.
10.) Age 40 has been a surprise, but a great one so far!

Leaves are falling all around, It’s time I was on my way.
Thanks to you, I’m much obliged for such a pleasant stay.
But now it’s time for me to go. The autumn moon lights my way.
For now I smell the rain, and with it pain, and it’s headed my way.
Sometimes I grow so tired, but I know I’ve got one thing I got to do…
Chorus: Ramble On, And now’s the time, the time is now, to sing my song.
I’m goin’ ’round the world, I got to find my girl, on my way.
I’ve been this way ten years to the day, Ramble On,
Gotta find the queen of all my dreams.
Got no time to for spreadin’ roots, The time has come to be gone.
Mine’s a tale that can’t be told, my freedom I hold dear.
How years ago in days of old, when magic filled the air.
T’was in the darkest depths of Mordor, I met a girl so fair.
But Gollum, and the evil one crept up and slipped away with her, her, her….yeah.
Gonna ramble on, sing my song. Gotta keep-a-searchin’ for my baby…
Gonna work my way, round the world. I can’t stop this feelin’ in my heart
Gotta keep searchin’ for my baby. I can’t find my bluebird!
I would love to hear your thoughts! Thank you so much for reading!
