Welcome! I’ve had so much fun doing my drive bys that I thought it would be great fun to gather up some drive bys from around the world to share! I’ve had some of you take me up on that idea and post your own drive bys to give us a peek into what you see where you are! Or in some cases, where you’ve been on vacation!

It is always amazing to me how different things can look in different parts of the country or the world. That is why I am a firm believer in traveling if you are able. It opens you up to new creative ideas to stretch your mind to what is possible! But, the second best thing to traveling is to see the world through someone else’s eyes.

I’ve found that doing drive bys helps me to slow down and savor each detail of what I see. A pretty lantern, a picket fence, a welcoming front porch, cottage flowers framing a bench. Rather than serving to depress me or make me dissatisfied with what I have, drive bys help me see the beauty around me and what is possible. Beauty in, beauty out. In other words, seeing beauty in the world helps me reproduce it, usually with more creativity than money!

And please, if you don’t mind, would you thank each of these bloggers in their comments for sharing their photos with us on Drive Bys: Around the World?
