In order to spell out "Oh the places we'll go" I needed 2 packages of letters with the majority of the letters going unused. Thankfully there was one "L" left, so I picked up a bottle of red paint and made quick work of the letters L-O-V-E.
Since moving to Texas, I've always associated those letters in red with the statue in my home town of Philly. This little frame of art reminds me of home and also Chris as he had it tattooed on his arm right before our wedding.
With the red paint on my mind and some left over card stock from cutting out the states, I decided to honor another home town - my dad's birth place of Trinidad and Tobago.
I've always been proud of my father and his heritage. It was so exciting to share the experience of visiting my dad's roots with Chris and I'm glad we'll have a little reminder of that heritage in our future house.
