This is not a sponsored post.

If you're a seasoned blogger, you may have already heard of Unsplash.  It's a website that provides "Free (do whatever you want) hi-resolution photos."  They're great for making blog images (I used some here) or for printing and using as art in your home.  They have a wide variety, from oceans to cities, people to countryside.

There are so many good ones to choose from.  I would love to (and just might) frame and display some of these:

I could go on and on and on...

This is not a sponsored post, but I highly encourage you to have a look around the site.  Let me know which ones are your favorite!

Here are all of the posts I did about our wedding.

Number 2

During our recent vacation, we popped into this gag-novelty store.  Think Spencer's, but family friendly.  I saw this bathroom spray and just had to get it.

"Beethoven Symphony No. 2 Lavatory Mist - Undo major and minor odors"

"Ludwig van Beethoven's gastric problems, particularly in times of great stress - like the fall of 1802 - were legendary.  As his hearing worsened and proved incurable, so too did his intestinal issues.  Still it is presumed that lavatory breaks were welcome opportunities to contemplate the symphony's ambitious movements, which are particularly joyous and buoyant, with surging runs of wind, brass and timpani, exploding like a firecracker."

For those who don't know, I am a Classical musician, with a Bachelor's degree in Music Education (dual emphasis in violin and choral) and a Master's degree in Conducting... Needless to say, I thought this was hilarious, and even though it was ridiculously overpriced, I had to have it.

This would be a great gift for any Classical music lovers in your life.

I bought mine in a boutique in Nevada City, but I found it on Amazon here:
