I still remember …

A friend posted a picture on her Facebook page last night and immediately it took me back a few years… maybe 40 years …

…back to when I was a kid and would spent hours walking in the woods with my Dad or help him cut wood and keep his land trimmed from all the undergrowth. That was back in the day when my younger sister and I would spend many weekends with him on his acres of woodland while Mom worked. I didn’t do too much work, I was too little, but I had fun making Barbie doll houses out of moss ( yes I took my Barbies everywhere) and picking mayflowers and trilliums and lady slippers. I actually closed my eyes and could remember the woods road and trails, and which path went to what place and the places we got stuck or that were really mossy…even the places we made little forts. That was so long ago!  Dad sold his woodland a few years back. He had only girls, and girls wouldn’t want woodland…lol

So when my friend posted this picture of the Lady Slippers growing in her wooded area garden…I remembered these special moments in time!

I guess that’s why I love orchids so much and they are one of my favs.

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
