AWESOME sunset to keep my spirit up.

Truth be told I'm not in a great shape lately. Life is catching up for all those peaceful moments I've had last 3 years and it's kicking my butt big time :( But I can only do as much about it so rather than crying over my misery I choose to get happy on the side. Like this photo - it makes me happy.

Job - provides money - money buys things - things don't make me happy
Home - I don't love being home so I should be there only as much as required to get things done
School - I actually like is so far
Dh - he's coming around - I hope.

Summary - let's just focus on the photo, shall we? :)

Pink wall!

If only it was somewhere close.... but it's far far away.... This pink wall was such a great background I'm a little mad it was built in Greece *stomping my feet*. I have to find another one just as good! LOL

Now help me decide if I should print those in color or B&W?? I love vibrant photos but when I convert to B&W it just gets super powers and all of a sudden the color version looks blank. What do you say??

Greece - {Kerkira} {Ioannina} {Athens}

I'm so proud to present you these. I knew coming back from Greece that my memories and the instant beauty of it will stay with me forever. Our whole trip was so intensive we could barely catch a breath during those hours spent moving from one place to another under the cruel, harsh sun that never gave us any relief. Majority of houses there were not air conditioned and we just didn't have the energy to fight it so siesta wasn't even an option - it was a necessity.

We started of in Corfu {Kierkira} where ALex got Baptised. That took a ton of our time to prepare for. Then took a ferry to Ioannina from where we drove to a village so old and separated from any everyday pleasures that I take for granted like drinking water that I can't even remember the name of it. I didn't even know that close member's of Dh's family grew up there.... This was by far the most impressive place from all of our trip. From there we moved down ( down the mountains driving those nauseating roads) to stay in Ioannina only few hours and back on the plane to go to Athens. I saw absolutely nothing in Athens because: a) we were wiped out of energy and any good will what - so -ever , b) we got there the day the fires started and it was difficult to move around the city, c) Danai's baptism was a big event we had to attend to and prepare for, d) and that probably was the biggest reason - we were invited every day to spend time with Dh's family which was very nice but ohhhh so "family like" - if you know what I mean.

4 days after arriving in Athens we were back on the plane to go where we started off in Corfu... and that was the time we all could relax some. We did the beach, local taverns, and a short trip with a boat and that was the end of our trip. I'm very happy with our stay there even if it wasn't as relaxing or didn't include as much sightseeing as would have imagined... but that's what happens when you hang out with your family. It just required some extra organizing skills.

So here's a little bit of Greece in my eyes :)

One little bee.

She was so busy she didn't even see me coming :) I took her by a surprise and *snap* here she is :)

Danai's Baptism

My SIL's daughter is the sweetest little angel. I love her so much and it was a pleasure being invited to her baptism. I wasn't asked to take photos but when you have a camera you just take it every single place you can. Here are the results. Some taken before the ceremony, some after... I have so many more but those caught my heart right away.
