Greece

Wendy is hosting a swap.
An awesome swap.
"Around the World in 20 Tags"


After much mind changing...

Scotland
the Farmboy's heritage,

Ireland
my heritage,

Italy
where we honeymooned,

France
who doesn't love France,

I finally decided on
Greece.


I would say that Greece is THE country of interest in this household right now.
I've loved Greece and it's mythology since 7th grade...
Persephone's sad tale being my favorite.
It is also the place of the Graduate's (soon to be a History major this coming fall) favorite time period.
The Farmboy would give just about anything to dive in the Aegean Sea.
And the Teenager (formerly known as Capin' Davey Cannonswine... doesn't seem right to continue calling him that anymore seeing as how he starts high school in the fall) is all into and can relate to the Percy Jackson and the Olympians books.


So I chose Greece.
And when I think of Greece, along with Persephone, dolmades, juicy olives
(in that order)

I also think of
Aphrodite.


The Goddess of Love

*********

And on a side note...
There will not be any Friday's Flowers this week.
You see, on Saturday, I have a very important date
with a Mad Hatter and a cup of Tea.
I'd love for you to stop by too.
See you then!

I think you caught the essence of Greece very well. Aphrodite has her name all over that gorgeous tag. You'll make someone very happy with that one.

This reminds me of THE BEST class I took in college (although I was a Human Services major)~ Greek Mythology. The professor had me enchanted with her beautiful tales realized in your piece, Alisa! Thanks for sharing.
