Smell the Roses - Love Your City!

By Jessicavenoy @lovelyjesscuh
It's Monday so you know what that means: Smell the Roses! If you don't know what I'm talking about, you can read all about it here! .
Last week's task was to do something that is unique to where you live, with the purpose being to appreciate it :) Luckily, I love Tampa and I had a lot of fun doing this.
One of my favorite places in the Tampa area is an old historic district called Ybor City. I love the look and feel of the place. The architecture always catches my eye and it never gets old to look at. There is so much to do, and it is filled with all kinds of people (perfect for people watching!). Ybor is known for its nightlife, but I typically like to go during the day when it's more about the restaurants and walking around exploring. Adam & I saw The Hunger Games (which you can read how I felt about the movie here) in the theater that's in Ybor. I asked him if we could go early and walk around and take pictures of the place - he, of course, was on board with it (gotta love a man who appreciates his girl's blog right?! ;)) and snapped some pictures for me.
I took this one inside of a coffee shop.  I was getting a coffee while Adam was outside snapping the first couple of pictures :) Smell the Roses - Love Your City!
He took this one from the upper balcony on 8th Avenue. There are 2 main street/strips in Ybor...7th Avenue & 8th Avenue. Smell the Roses - Love Your City!
I still haven't had the chance to ride the trolley! I really need to get on that. Smell the Roses - Love Your City!
This is my favorite sushi place - Samurai Blue..mmm so good! And I am obsessed with all of the brick that makes up Ybor. Smell the Roses - Love Your City!
This is 1603 - the place where I got my tattoo done and where Adam got his first tattoo done. Smell the Roses - Love Your City!
You can always find people playing music on the streets in hopes  of making some cash. That guy is filming another guy playing guitar. Smell the Roses - Love Your City!
And this is the view of the theater from across the street. Smell the Roses - Love Your City!
Did you do something that is unique to where you live?! Grab a button, link up, and share :)

This week's task:
Write down 3 inspirational quotes and post them in places where you'll see them throughout the week. 

I'll probably post mine on my bathroom mirror, my car dashboard, and my front door.
Sometimes we just need to slow down (especially if we're having a bad day) and be reminded that everything is gonna be alright! With how much I have going on with school, I have a feeling these little reminders will really help brighten my week. Check back next week to see what quotes I wrote down. I can't wait to see which ones you guys chose...I'm a total quote junkie ;)

Happy Monday!
