Catching Up and Inspirations

A friend shared this video of a short film with me, and I shared it with my boys today. It's quite long (6 minutes) but worth every minute in its beautifully put message. Take a look if you have time. Poignant especially for my Jared who is such a fussy picky eater, in our land of abundance. They were both rather moved.

Life's been terribly hectic! Jared is falling behind in his work and has a huge backlog of homework, so a lot of time is now focused on that. It's hard, but he's been a trooper.
I'm falling behind in my layouts, and just managed to complete my 365 layout of two weeks ago. It seems my photos are mainly taken around our home, which is where most of our family time is spent, and home really is best! :)

  13. hi yin, thx for dropping by my site. yes of course you can take some of the LO as credit, we all love ur template, but you have to let me know which one cause I've barred right click on my blog.

    I've been to both saigon and hanoi, but i think for a culture difference, hanoi is better :). But if you like to crawl the cu chi tunnel, then it has to be saigon ;). lemme know if u need some tips where to eat etc.
