Wherever Wednesday

Welcome to This is Wherever Wednesday!  At Wherever Wednesday we share those little moments that really show the character of the places we live.   It started on Budget Blond and, after an intermission, restarted in November here.

If you're looking for ideas for this month's Wherever Wednesday, might I suggest sharing how you celebrated new years where you live!  I've found each place celebrates a little differently. I grew up on a boat in California, and the liveaboards always celebrated new years by blowing our fog horns at midnight!  It made quite a noise!  Here in Texas they celebrate the New Years by eating black eyed peas.  How do you celebrate new years where you live?

Or since this is a new could post your favorite post about where you live or where you've been from the past year!

Or whatever you like.  Any post about place is great!  

 Other then mine (about how Texans see Californians) there was only one, a great post by Venessa Morgan with lots of beautiful pictures of Christmas Markets in Brussles!  I hope you'll all check it out if you missed it last month!

And please link up below with your "this is wherever" from this month!   If you're still a little uncertain what that means, this post over at Budget Blond will help you out--but don't worry, I'm pretty easy going about what can be posted, so long as it has something to do with someplace you live or have been!

Not required...but sharing a link to this linky helps spread the word. Thanks to all who post the button below!


  1. Did you not have the blackeyed peas tradition in California? Maybe it's a southern thing because they do that in Alabama and NC as well. In NC, they have an acorn drop (like the ball drop in NY only it's an acorn) in downtown Raleigh because Raleigh is the "City of Oaks" apparently. We didn't go, but they showed it on TV. I can't wait to participate next month and I'm a new follower. :)

  2. It's absolutely a southern thing, I think! Never heard of Black Eyed Peas in California. My mom's from New England (Mass...then spent the end of High School in Ohio), and since she never mentioned it I'm guessing it's not common there either.
