I want to remember....


these precious moments....

where 

we took long walks...


on the beach..

and drinking hot chocolate at the jetty...

marvel at mother nature and her beautiful creations...






buying fresh vegetables from the market...



and looking forward to artistic finds...

(goat's milk soap in the most luxurious and delicious flavors!)


(wooden block printing stamps intricately carved..
you'll scream with delight when you see this.. 
well I did but I had resisted buying with some regrets now..
what was I thinking! I can't possibly...............CARVE these.... LOL! )


(beautiful handmade artistic glass beads)

trying to cook like the masterchefs..


(Laksa fried chicken!! yums...and the kids loved this...)


wearing silly hats while making art....

(this piece was done with a teeny help from me and I asked her to think of a word
and she chose "pride" saying that her teacher in school told them to always take pride
in their work....)



I had loved and will cherish every moment spent with you


and I love you so much.....

Have a wonderful weekend!!!

Stunning photos and lovely art. Gotta love those stamps. Yep, I screamed with delight, and I only saw them in a photo! Glass beads were gorgeous, too. What a delightful post. Welcome home.
