Wandering the streets of Carmel By The Sea + a couple thoughts
Yesterday morning was a slow, sip your coffee, make a second cup, be a lap dog kinda morning. It was perfection.
When we did finally peel ourselves off the couch, we had lunch and roamed the streets of Carmel By The Sea.
If you’re ever traveling though, I highly recommend stopping in. It’s a quaint, charming, magical forest as they like to refer it. Funny fact, to keep CBTS a magical forest, they do not allow grass. Also they don’t have addresses. They name their homes fun stuff like Ocean Heaven, Sea Glass or something cool. I just made those up, but you get it. Their address goes something like this: 4 southwest corner of 2nd + San Carlos, red door. No joke.
Anyway this town reminds me of the cute Swedish town – Solvang, CA down by Santa Barbara. It’s very eclectic.
Just in case you have a clothing emergency, and a lot of scrilla, there is help. #firstworldproblems
We popped into a cute little café for a cup of coffee. I could have went all Templeton status on their window display. It was incredible.
I’m in love with this card. Only problem is I’m so sweet, I wouldn’t know who to give it to. Right Mike…
And my personal favorite. Because squirrels totally need chonies.
It was a nice day to kick back, not have anywhere to be and hang out.
A couple random blog things I’ve seen around here as well as others lately. I’m giving you my 2 cents fo free. See now you have 2 cents.
Those who “promote” brands, blogs, social media accounts or whatever expecting the same thing or something in return. I do think it’s polite to reciprocate, but I don’t believe they owe you anything. If you find yourself feeling that way, it may be time to reevaluate your intentions.
I’ve told y’all before that I really appreciate every one of you guys + your support, and I do. Thank you so much! But I don’t measure the blogs success by traffic or numbers. I don’t get all butt hurt if people unfollow me, in fact I don’t even keep track. It’s just a blog. It’s just a number. It’s virtual. I don’t understand why people take it so personal.
A genuine readership + social media connections are far more important to me than numbers.
I feel that connecting with you on the blog, through social media & reading your emails is far more gratifying than a bunch of numbers. I don’t even agree with math anyway. And yes, that is totally possible for someone to not agree with math. I am that person.
Any random thoughts on the blogging + social media?
