Adding to the collection

Carey and I collect mugs from the places we've traveled together.  It all started in New York, sort of by fluke, since we were simply looking for a souvenir that wouldn't just sit around and collect dust.  Then we added a mug from Chicago, Busch Gardens (Florida) and Toronto.  We limit ourselves to 1 per place, though, otherwise we'd have 2 from Chicago and 4 from Florida (we're missing Dominican Republic though, where we went for our honeymoon - guess we need to go back!).  I find that they're a great keepsake, since we get lots of use out of them (we only use our "matching" mugs when we have company) and I love to think back to our vacations while sipping my morning coffee, or while enjoying some hot chocolate on a cold day.

This week we added this baby to the collection.  Can't wait to try it out!

Vacation pictures coming soon! :)

We do something similar... only with shot glasses. Not sure exactly how or where that started, but we have quite a few already! (which almost never get used, but sit on the ledge above my top kitchen cupboards collecting dust ;) Others add to that collection too, when they're bringing back souvenirs for us from their own trips! It's kinda neat having shot glasses from all over the world!!
