During the "One World One Heart" Blog Event I visited a charming and beautiful Blog. It was in two languages and so I was intrigued as to the other language and what part of the World the Blogger lived. I read the name of the Country outloud ~ "Slovenia". Well, Lauren was in total shock and disbelief when she heard the name ~ Slovenia. Amazingly, that day at School ~ her Teacher had given each Student the name of a Country for an International Studies Project. Can you believe that Lauren was assigned the Country of Slovenia?
Honestly, I had never heard of Slovenia ~ but then Geography is not my best Subject. I do however know lots of completely useless information ~ like all the words to the theme song from Gilligan's Island.
So, I emailed Anja and asked if she'd be willing to help Lauren with her Project. Anja was so extremely kind and said she'd love to answer questions about Slovenia. Lauren and I are both looking forward to learning more about Anja's Beautiful Country ~ Slovenia. Hop over here to check out Anja's Fabulous Blog.
When I went to get the link for Anja's Blog ~ I noticed that she's posted instructions for a cute Jean Bucket. I've been looking eveywhere for a tutorial/pattern similar to this easy and adorable Jean Bucket. I can't wait to try and make one. And so ~ once again God has winked at me .....
The above Quote is posted on Anja's Blog ~ don't you love it?
Slovenia is a young a republic, only about 15 years old, part of the former Yugoslavia. It's just east of Italy and south of Austria with spectacular mountains, the Julian Alps, which are just perfect for hiking. The people are friendly, the country is immaculate, the food is wonderful. The relative unanimity of the region has made it a unique and untouched location, unlike anywhere else in Europe.
This is the description of Slovenia from the website ~ Bill Russell's Mountain Tours. You can click here for information about an unforgetable hiking trip through Slovenia. I'd love to visit Slovenia ~ just don't think I would survive a Hiking Tour.
I LOVE this picture of Lauren that was actually taken several years ago.
This picture of Lauren reminds me of a 1940's starlet.
Have you ever had an incident where you felt it was just a little bit more than a conincidence ~ possibly a wink from God? I'd love to hear about it ~ you can post a comment or email me using the link on the "side bar".
