Happiness 101

Happiness starts with a swing and an apple tree by a little house in the prairie :)This is our new house in Denmark, we're moving there this December - hurra hurra hurra!

burn the floor on broadway & think about life in my head

This weekend my friend Julien was visiting - hehe yes another guest for the Belliard Smit Hotel-, and we all went to a show on Broadway called "Burn the Floor" - supposed to be ballroom dancing, re-invented.

While I was rather disappointed by the show itself (I didn't really think that they reinvented anything...classic moves, classic costumes...oh and the music, I thought I was in the movie Ghost half the time, and Flashdance the rest of the time with a mix of Viva Mexico here and there), I enjoyed going to the show because it made me think about my life a lot. It made me think about salsa dancing, something I used to LOVE and do all the time in Tucson, and that has somehow slipped out of my life.

How I miss my salsa friends!!!!

And from then on I started thinking about all of these other things that I've picked up at some point or another in my life, and that are gone now. Some of them for the better. But others I really miss, and wish I was still doing them. I know, you will tell me - I try to do so much and am interested in so many things that it would be hard to keep up with all of these things I life to do. But still. Can I still dream that it's possible for me to be SuperWoman and do them all? :)

Dreams of purple flowers

Another sewing project, this time not for our little tynimus, but for Ella - the little girl that our friends Yoav and Yif are expecting for November. Yif gave me fabric that she had left over from her wedding dress because she had no use for it, so I thought I'd make a little dress and matching shoes for Ella as a suprise. My first dress working without a pattern too :) Hoping that they will like it - the pink it showing much brighter on the pics than it actually is.

25 weeks!

Only 15 more weeks to go and we can hold you, little Tinymus :)

Showering Yif's baby :)

Nothing like a bachelor-wedding-babyshower party :D Lots of friends, food (yummmm ribs by Troels and guacamole by Dani, delicious!) and drinks. Our friends Yoav and Yif had already celebrated their union in Israel, where going to get the real wedding done the day after at City Hall, and are expecting a little girl for November. Talk about staying busy!

Tyler was just cracking up all night -later on I saw him dance and sing for the first was priceless :D

Yoav and Meredith

Just a happy happy night :)

Yif and one of her presents - Wash towels shapped into a "Sushi" platter....oh this is SO New York.

The pregnant ladies and the dessert.....typical picture :D
