To blog or not to blog....

Yes again I'm debating this and I think I will until I've decided not to share!  In the mean time if you're going to read my blog please except the fact that you will be seeing this "dilemma" always being put out there!  :)

It's been a long long while since I posted even though my intention was to be organize and post more frequently that good intention just didn't work out, as you can tell, and just like the resolutions we all make on new years eve!  Anyways I have been busy and I have stuck to having soup every week so I guess not all is lost with my "resolutions".

So where to start?  I guess I'll start with the big events!  Well fist off my hubby lost his job in April because of the drop of oil so the company downsized, which was not a surprise to us and in many ways I'm glad only because he's been travelling so much the last 6 years that truly that's not a life.  However, it is hard for him but it is what it is.  Since we were already planning our trip to Hungary for May I convinced him that he should go early and spend some time with his mom which was a surprise to her because we didn't tell her that he was coming, so there he showed up at her doorstep!  :)

A month after he left it was my turn to travel to meet up with him.  So here is the thing, I turned 50 this year!!  YUP 50 and as always I knew how I wanted to spend my birthday...in Hungary!  Some have big parties but I'm not that way I'm pretty low key and I knew that I would be celebrating my birthday there and that I did!!  When I arrived hubby went all out and bought flowers and lots of them!  He had a bouquet for every room.  I told him before he left that I want to do something really special to celebrate my birthday but also to celebrate us!  It has always been so important to me to experience the Danube and since there are some many tours and events on the Danube hubby was able to book a dinner cruise, and boy talk about breath taking, speechless, in AWE of all of Budapest's beauty and sheer glory I'm (We) are completely in heaven of the memory we created for ourselves!!

Then OMG I've always wanted to see Andre Rieu and every time he came to town some one would spit in my pea soup and I couldn't go!!  BUT NOT THIS TIME!  We have a friend that was in Hungary in the fall and I asked if he'd help me get tickets and OMG he did and I was close enough I could SMELL that wonderful violinist!!!!  :)  During one of the pieces they played there's a place where one of the orchestra member whistles and well I joined her and found myself on the jumbotron.  LOL!!

Then off we went to Csiksolymo.  This is a place in Erdely (Romania) were thousands and thousands of people come around the world for pentecostal mass.  It's a very special place with deep history, and since hubby is from a town just over 5km away we were there.  I'm a true believer that GOD always shows us the way and he did for when I met my husband I had know idea where he was from in fact we didn't talk to each other (long story) but we were always attracted to each other.  My mom always mentioned that I need to make this journey and experience Csiksolymo.  When hubby and I first started to see each other that is when I found out where his is from.  See GOD works in ways that are good for you!

I think that should be it for now, I will post some more in the next few days!  I have LOTS!!!

Be kind to one another!!
