Warm summer sun

Hi guys,

Hope you enjoyed the weekend as much as I did! I had a great time yesterday, hangin' in my friends yard, playing board games and making plans for Greece this summer.

Today, driven by the beautiful weather outside, we decided to go biking in the park. I don't know about you guys, but for me, one of my memorable childhood experiences would definitely be learning to ride a bike. I remember it like it was yesterday. It was a quite painful experience actually. I asked my cousin to teach me how to do it and unfortunately for me, his methods were a bit unorthodox :). He told me to get on the bike and then pushed me off a hill, thinking that this way I would get scared, start pedaling and learn how to ride the bike. Well, it's safe to say I did not peddle at all, and I ended up riding the bike straight into a fence...auch!

But this is the beauty of being a kid...after every fall, no matter how painful, I would always get up and try again, a thousand times, until I'd succeed (Oh, how I wish I had the same ambition nowadays). So I practiced and practiced until I finally learned how to ride a bike. And it felt amazing! I felt free and powerful for the first time!

Ever since I moved to Bucharest I've been thinking about buying my own bicycle. Every year I do tons of research on models and prices, but since I don't have any place to store it during the cold seasons, I had no choice but to settle for rentals... This proved to be a problem today, as the renting center was closed, so my plans were totally ruined...It was a bit frustrating at first, but after a nice walk in the park and a couple of beers, we pretty much forgot about the biking disappointment. Thank you, beer, I knew I could count on you to fix everything :)!

Have a wonderful week!

Weekend Joy

Hi guys,

After Monday to Friday madness, it's finally time for some weekend happiness! Between cleaning the house, doing laundry and grocery shopping (hey, happiness comes from simple things, ha ha), we managed to squeeze in a little visit to the Botanical Garden. It was really nice and quiet and I very much enjoyed this mini trip.

I was waiting for my parents to come stay with us for the weekend, but unfortunately my father got caught up at work so they won't be able to arrive untill tomorrow morning. Bummer!

So, with the house being clean and the fridge being full, it's time for some Dirty Dancing and heavy eating :P!

I recently decided to re-watch some of my favorite movies, it's kind of my newest weekend tradition. Some of them I watched as a kid, so it will be interesting to see my adult perspective on them...Nobody puts Baby in the corner! :)

I wish you all the most amazing weekend!

Wedding Bliss

Hi guys,

Remember I told you that 2 weeks ago I attended our cousins' beautiful celebration of love? Well, I came back with some pictures from that special day! The party was held at Residence Domenii Plaza hotel in Bucharest, and I must say the location was perfect! Very classy and elegant! The thing that I loved the most about that place was actually its vintage style roof terrace with wonderful views of the city! I'll definitely go back there one hot summer evening for a nice dinner with my friends. That place really got my attention!

On a different note, the weekend is rapidly approaching! Hooray! Oh, how I love shorter working weeks!

Many hugs,
