Hey guys! I’m so happy to finally write about our family summer vacation of 2019. Initially this trip wasn’t even in our plans, but about 2 months ago, on our way back home from Paris, the idea crossed my mind. Why not go backpacking or on a road trip?? Knowing that the Husband only had about 10 days off of work this summer, this couldn’t be too far away from home. We finally settled with a Germany – Czech Republic – the Netherlands trip and you know, we have absolutely no regrets!!! ??
When a pyjama isn’t enough to warm me up and I need a thick sweater, then I know that summer is officially over. I’m not sure what to think of it though. When I was younger, Fall used to be my favorite season, but I’m beginning to think that Spring might be it for me now. Anyways, enough of season-talking because I’m also officially late in posting about our Family Summer Vacation!
A couple of days ago we celebrated Easter. We usually like to spend the day with my family, but this year it wasn’t possible. The Husband was working that Sunday and my sister and her husband were invited to spend the weekend with friends. So we decided we would stay home and have a quiet celebration.
A couple of days ago we officially said goodbye to the winter and greeted spring. I say officially because with the weird climate changes we’ve had lately, the season has no indication to the weather. In other words, I’m not gonna pack my winter sweaters yet. Anyways, I just wanted to do a little recap of the past 3 months. On days I feel down, I like to go through my Instagram photos and then it hits me « as imperfect as my life is, it’s still a pretty good one ». I thought I would do something like that here.
Sunday Brunch is our family thing. We all super love it. Unfortunately, the Husband works 3 weekends out of 4. This means that for that weekend he is home, I make sure I have ingredients to prepare a nice brunch. Then we’ll seat down as a family (sometimes in bed!) and talk about anything and everything!
Last weekend, we decided to go to Paris for a day. The Husband usually has only one free weekend per month so as much as possible we try to go and visit other places. We’ve already been to Paris several times, but it’s always a pleasure to go back. I’m happy to live in Metz, but Paris has definitely more activities and places to visit. And this time around, I wanted to bring Baby Girl to the Musée du Louvre!
I miss home. Home for me is Cebu, Philippines. I haven’t been back since 2011. Can you believe that? Some days I really really want to go back, but other days I just don’t know. Normally, we will go back in December this year. I can’t wait I can’t wait to be with my friends. I can’t wait to spend time on the beach. And I certainly can’t wait to eat in all my favorite places!
For the past couple of weeks, the Husband and I went back and forth our Valentine’s Day plans. We wanted to eat out and then we didn’t. We wanted to do an activity and then we didn’t. I was thinking of trying an Indian restaurant. He wanted to do a culinary class together. But we couldn’t decide. I had already asked Dad to babysit Baby Girl for us and he agreed (after I bribed him with a promise that I would cook a Quiche Lorraine and an Apple Cake). Basta, all I knew was that the Husband and I would go out for Valentine’s Day. What’s great about the both of us – is that it doesn’t take much for us to be happy, just as long as we’re together. 🙂
