I love it!

Several years ago while driving in Europe, we found ourselves driving behind a well-worn RV. I quickly noticed all the bumper sticks and a phrase which has stuck with me for all these years. It was written in German and translated means "Don't dream your life; live your dreams!"

I got to thinking that this was quite a statement and it very correctly labeled the life The Trout and I were living. We certainly have never halted in doing just want we wanted to do, experiencing the world around us.

Our daughter is an Uppercase Living demonstrator and for our anniversary this year, she wanted to give us one of the beautiful expressions they have in their catalogs. I quickly asked if I could design my own, and that was possible. So, my favorite phrase was created and yesterday The Trout and I put it up in my kitchen. I just love it and wanted to share it with you.


  1. I like this saying. Aber ich denke das Umlaut sollte auf das 'a' sein, nicht?

  2. You are correct. I was on the ladder putting my umlauts on the word and could not really see up close what I was doing. Took the photo and printed it and then it hit me. Mistake has been corrected on my wall, but not in the photo. sigh....
