Here's my layout inspired by the Spring Feel photo.
The photos of the girls when they were young, we lived on 57th street, just a few minutes walk to central park south, we spent a lot of time there when we were new to the city. I miss those days and I miss Spring Time in New York City!
This past weekend, DH and I went to Iowa for my brother-in-law's retirement party.
it was cold.......
after the party on Saturday, we drove to Des Moines, IA to spent a night with my sister-in-law Marilyn, since my older brother-in-law Dan passed away nearly 3 years ago, she hasn't been able to adjust, few months ago, she finally decided to leave Cedar Rapids, bought a mobile home and parked it at her daughter's farm, that way, she can spend time with her daughter and grand children, but yet has her own space.
Iowa is really really cold, no wonder DH never want to move back there.
Growing up in the city and lived in NYC, the wide open farm land seems attractive to me, imagine your neighbor is like miles away.... ahhhh....
It's been a week since I last posted, this is probably the longest gap I have in between posts, LOL! With OBW came to an end, City Crafter Challenge Blog is my only commitment, and now I am only going to blog when I have the time and mood, that way, I could enjoy blogging again and not feeling like a duty or chores.
A lot going on here at home and something exciting is coming....
YES!!!!! I am going to Paris!!!!!
The last two times I was in Paris, it was cold...
That was in November I think, I lost all my photos from previous Europe trip because my laptop crushed, this one is from DH's cell phone, since then, I learn that I should store my folders in two places instead of one.
Although we went to Paris early Spring in 2013, but it was still cold first week of April and there's really isn't much bloom.
Clare got into a International Piano competition in Paris, she is going to her semi-final round 3rd week of April. Springtime in Paris!!!! So hopefully, we can see Paris in bloom this time!
The other exciting news is this time my girl friend from Grafing Germany, together with her husband Augustin is going to Paris to give Clare support too, so I am meeting Ann in Paris, YAY!!!!
Ann and I went to the same high school since we were teenagers, we watched each other children grew from infants to adults, she has been a big fan of Clare, till today, her son Ambros still listening to Clare's first CD she recorded when she was just nine years old. Augustin retired about a year ago, they have been traveling non stop since, the last time we went to Grafing, Augustin had a good time chatting with Clare and has been following Clare on instagram, knowing that Clare is going to Paris in the Spring, they made an effort to join us in April!
