Three Months Later…

Oh my, it’s been three months since I last posted!! It’s so odd to look at my blog and I could still see the post from last January!! Coming from somebody who used to blog every day or at least a few times a week, this is just a bit odd. Truth is, I’ve lost interest in papercrafting. My PL has only two pages and I think I can count with my two hands how many cards I’ve made this year. Don’t forget the zero scrapbook page! Yesterday I heard the news that 2Peas is closing and I think sometimes,

Finding Places Using Google Map

There are lots of wonderful apps that Google has to offer and one of my favorite, next to Google Search, is Google Map. I love maps. With a map you can go from one place to another. It doesn’t matter if it’s a paper or electronic map, maps get you there! Two big features of Google Map that I love is its ability to find establishments in the area I am interested in.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

  Just a little love post from me to you. Hope you have a wonderful wonderful day today! We’re not one to celebrate Valentine’s day by going out for a romantic dinner etc but if there’s a special day to celebrate love, kindness, giving, and anything nice, we’re there!

Take care and I shall

Super early because dad leaves for work quite early in the morning and we wanted to surprise her together. So after scrambling looking for candles (I know I have some somewhere), we brought cupcakes, 10 tea-light candles on a tray, and presents at around 6:30 a.m. <– yes, this is super early for us who wakes up at 8 a.m. on a weekday. But despite being woken up,

20 Things After Living 4 Years in England

If my husband’s job didn’t extend our stay, we’d be back in America by January 22nd. But he got extended and we have four more fabulous years to go! After settling in and got used to living here, we took advantage of living in England. We made sure we make lots of British friends. We made sure we go to every village/town/city event that looked (vaguely) interesting. We made sure we live somewhat British while still loving our s’mores, ice tea, and eating birthday cakes at the birthday party. And we made sure we traveled. In and outside of England.
