It’s currently #winter here in Addis Ababa and the moss is flourishing on most outdoor surfaces because of the extremely heavy rainfall and moisture. This #collage of #cross#pendants hanging on #moss covered #stones is just a sample of the diverse Ethiopian cross designs as well as the various types of mediums used such as: wood, nickel, silver, ivory, leather and soapstone. They are all hand carved/crafted and they all express faith in their own individual way. There are currently over 200 different cross designs throughout Ethiopia and all of them are done by various craftsmen. The Amharic (Ethiopian language) word for cross is #meskel
Our most iconic Cross Your Heart collection, which launched in 1954, is an enduring favourite with the famous X-shaped design to support and lift http://bit.ly/152Damart @damartuk

This guy's patriotism is commendable...and maybe a bit concerning as he stands in the middle of the street where cars have to go around him to avoid hitting him. Turn the volume up (I had the windows up and didn't want to alert him to my filming.) #nationalanthem#usa#usflag#crossyourheart#patriotism
All good things in life are fragile and easily lost-KhaledHousseini//
Here's to all the people who think they're toxic. To the people who think whatever they touch turns to dust. To the people who are scared to say anything, knowing their words will hurt. To the people who bottle up everything inside them. To the people who've lost people, and think they've lost at life. To the people who understand care when they see it, because they've cared more than they should've allowed themselves to. To the people who broke themselves, trying to fix others, and then blamed themselves for the loss. To the people, who think they don't deserve love. To the people who are afraid they will break someone again, just like a child is afraid he'll break something expensive. To the people who are scared to break and hurt themselves again. Here's to the people who are scared of themselves, because they believe that at one point, they were bolder than they should've been allowed to.
To all those people- thank you for existing. You're proof that love exists and a lesson that love hurts;
But moreover, a blessing which shows love heals what it hurts, only if you allow yourself to love again.
The way in which something is regarded, understood or interpreted;
Everyone has a different outlook to how they see life. That includes how they see their surroundings, their objects, their food, their coffee, paintings, books, people, emotions and every other littlest of thing which might hold no relevance for you. People percept what they say, what they hear, what they think, what they see in a very different way. So think about it this way, what seems black to you, might be white to them. What seems pretty to you, might seem ugly to them. What seems smart to you, might sound dumb to them. What seems happy to you, might seem sad to them. What seems proud to you, might seem disappointing to them. So before you try and put someone down for how they view and understand things, also think about how your opinion is different from them. People change people, and change is good. Try to understand their perception and let it make an impact on you. Think, create, love. Maybe having a different perception might help you understand things better. See beauty more. Don't shut yourself. Change yourself for the better. Strengthen your relationships. Find yourself before you find someone to love you//
So thankful to my husband for having one arm to hold me (while I was sobbing) and the other arm steady to capture this beautiful moment during the “Together Forever” Pixar fireworks show. When we found out the “Up” house was going to fly above the castle we knew we had to witness it in person and it was even more beautiful than I could’ve imagined. Adventure is out there!!! 💑💕🎈💍

👣 I was a bit nervous to do this hike as to 1) it’s humid 2) I’m pretty sure the volcano is hot as to it’s an active volcano. The video you will see was the steam coming out from the ground. Anyway, I wasn’t really sure if I wanna do this hike until the night prior. At first I didn’t even know how to get to the place. Fortunately, I was able to converse with manong guard who was a security at the villa/resort where we were staying at. He started the conversation at how he’s lived at this place (Amadeo/Tagaytay) all his life and he’s very familiar with the weather. Well, everyone likes to talk about the weather, so I was immediately engaged... then suddenly, I asked him how to get to the Taal Volcano to hike. Well, sure enough he knows the place and hooked us up with rides and taught us how to make sure we’re not getting charged too much. I was very thankful We got there, hiked up and down safely. And yeah, it was so hot and humid but it was all worth the view. #TaalVolcano#Tagaytay#Talisay#Philippines
BOOK REVIEW 😊
Cross your Heart - Kierney Scott
I have never read anything by Kierney Scott previous to this but I really enjoyed it. It's the second in a series so I felt that I missed some parts as it references the storyline of book one often but it didn't take anything away from this storyline.
Jess Bishop is an FBI agent with a troubling past so when she wakes up shackled in a room, she knows she can deal with what's coming. She is chasing a serial killer of young girls who leaves blue cotton candy with each body - she doesn't want to allow Ava to die so she fights against the monster to save her.
A great storyline, a feisty but a bit reckless female lead with twists and turns throughout - I was not expecting that ending! I may have to go backwards and read book one now!
I want to thank @netgally and Kierney Scott for the advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest and open review. .

El hilo existe independientemente del momento de sus vidas en el que las personas vayan a conocerse y no puede romperse en ningún caso, aunque a veces pueda estar más o menos tenso, pero es, siempre, una muestra del vínculo que existe entre ellas.
Un hilo rojo invisible conecta a aquellos que están destinados a encontrarse, sin importar tiempo, lugar o circunstancias. El hilo rojo se puede estirar, contraer o enredar, pero nunca romper”. La milenaria leyenda oriental intenta echarle un poco de luz al misterio de las almas gemelas.
Te amo migo❤️
