It's Greek to me...

So two years ago, Brett and I took the best vacation of our lives. We went to Athens, Mykonos and Santorini. I can't stress enough that every person should visit these places at least once in their lives. Feta cheese and olives truly don't come alive until you eat them here. 

Oh, and the wine is amazing.

Athens was undeniably awe-inspiring. I loved being a tourist here. The Parthenon and Acropolis absolutely blew my mind and I couldn't get over how young the whole concept of America was. I mean, America is seriously like a baby compared to European, Middle Eastern and African countries.

Speaking of babies, it was in Greece that we decided it was time to have one of our own. It actually came up while we were touring the museum at the Parthenon. We were walking through it, taking a break from the outside heat, and looking at all the old amazing tools those smarty pants Greeks came up with.

It was then we saw the Greek solution to potty-training. How cool/uncomfortable does that thing look! Can you imagine putting a squirmy 2 year old on that? Not to mention how cold it must get on his/her poor baby bum sitting on the marble!

But don't you just love that they came up with the idea of potty training?  

Oh, and the wine is amazing.


  1. I'm not a snobby wine drinker...but it has to have good flavor. I've had awesome $20 bottles of wine and shitty $100+ bottles!

  2. Thanks for dropping by my place yesterday,it's nice to meet you!

    I have always wanted to go to Greece. It is #1 on my list. I hope someday I can get there!

  3. See, I think the school system should pay for me to go to Europe. I just got done teaching Ancient Greece and my kids would have loved to hear about the potty training bit. Anything having to do with bowel movements is a big hit with 11 year olds!! Can you come teach my class??

    By the way, I tagged you on my blog!

  4. omg I totally agree they should totally send you! Yeah, what is it with kids and poop! I would loooove to teach kids! I can't think of a more fun/rewarding job!

    Thanks so much for the tag! I'll totally get ya back!
