So since I've been on blogger vacation for so long that I have made a list of posts I have in mind, that I will hopefully be able to write this week. Let's see...
1) Identity crisis - Some days I look in the mirror and I'm shocked to see some stranger looking back out at me. This woman looks much older than I am, she has some, well we'll kindly call them "laugh lines" and some gray hair. Certainly this can't be me...
OK so it's not really my identity crisis I want to write about (that's a whole other post!) but my daughters. At almost 5 years old she's starting to feel the impact of her Chinese and American cultures and she's questioning where she fits in. I didn't really expect it this young... More to come on that.
2) Anniversaries- Yep, eight years of marital bliss was just celebrated by Adam and me. Well, maybe not all bliss, we've had some real tough times and have gone through a whole lot of trials in our 8 years of marriage. Although our love and feelings for each other has always been strong, we've had a few emotional curve balls tossed our way. But we've had even more amazing joys, blessings and so much everyday fun. I was a lucky gal to have met my hubby, and I look forward to many many more years...
3) Friends visit- We had our dear friends visit from Florida last weekend. It was just wonderful to see them, and we are so glad that they came. They brought their two kiddos, Brady who is 3 and baby Addison who is two weeks younger than my little Wei-Che. Bittersweet...getting to hold and cuddle a baby the same age as him. Made my heart just ache. (let's all send a good vibe to that almighty Judge over there for some quick rulings!) But we had a great time hanging out and trying to convince them to move here to East Tenn. I'll post some pics later!
And so I still need to catch up on all my blog buddies and read the latest with them, maybe I'll sneak into work early one day and get on that. We hear so much about this recession, but I tell ya...we have never been busier at work (I work for a title company - real estate transfers, refinances & commercial development) We had 30 closings in the last two weeks of May alone. For our little company that is a lot, and now my boss is on maternity leave! SO I've been non stop at the office, and while I love being busy and the challenges that come with it, well it leaves me little time for blogging. I guess I really cannot complain about a steady paycheck and job security in these times though. I do know how lucky I am to have this great job.
So below are some fun pics my Dad sent me to share with my blogger friends.
My sweet niece. She gets bigger and bigger every time I see her! She's a cutie - what personality!
And this is the outside of the sugar house. It was way up in the woods, they said it was a beautiful walk/climb to reach it.
And this is an apple tree out front of my parents house. My Dad says people stop their cars to look at it and take photos, its a real beauty!
