Five years ago my husband and I went to Italy for an organized bike ride through Tuscany. We have travelled quite a bit in Europe, mostly in France as I have family there and several other places in Europe for business in which I, as the devoted wife, must go to keep my husband from being lonely. Anyway, Italy has long been on my list of places to visit and now we were going.

Since I’ve been to France several times I try to not look or act too much like a tourist. So you can imagine my surprise the first day as we were walking through Florence when I saw this!

Do you see that thing clipped to the collar of my husband’s shirt?! That, my friends, is what’s known as a hat clip. It’s so the wind won’t blow your hat away or if you take the hat off you won’t forget it because it’s still attached to you. I was horrified and rightfully made fun of him for looking so much like a tourist. In fact I made fun of him for years whenever he wore that thing until… I bought a hat for the Camino. And since I have a tendency to put things down and forget to pick them up I thought it would be a good idea to get one.

I do not receive anything in return for including this link.

And you can make fun of me 🤪

I am me, a person with love for others, a passion to be creative, and a desire to be a cheerleader for others. I’m a wife, a mommy, and a grandma (you can call me by my grandma name “Lady M”). I’m on a search to grow and connect more fully with God. I didn’t grow up particularly church, married a man who had, and we raised our three daughters in the church. I found a place to belong in the church and somehow discerned a call to go to seminary. I received a Masters of Arts and Religious Communication (MARC). I went on to become ordained as a deacon in the United Methodist Church and served in media ministry and Christian education. As clergy I found that I didn’t have a place to belong in the church so I left the United Methodist Church in 2010. I still believe and I’m still on a quest to draw closer to God. And I’m going to walk the Camino de Santiago.
