Happiness....

{Colin and Vivienne}

Happiness is....watching your parents dancing together to Abba (Thank you for the Music :D!) on their 24th Anniversary. They never celebrate their wedding anniversary, just their first date! They had me and my brother before they were married...so they choose to remember this day as the beginning of their loved-up-ness *beam*...

Seeing the wonderful Crocus coming up all over the park....so pretty! Taking some time to make Paper Cranes to give to your loved ones.....I find this so relaxing...I never had the patience as a child to learn Origami, but I have now (that's what jewellery making will do to you!!)..so am thinking of doing some more as relaxation (must find a good book..any suggestions?), as well as my Tai Chi class which I am beginning on Wednesday. I will be feeling relaxed in no time....:)

Happy Monday to all....I hope this will be a good week full of productivity and beauty. XX

i loved this entry. what a wonderful little story about your parents. paper cranes and tai chi. love it! what kind of paper are you using for the cranes? white or all kinds?

Abigail said...

Hey Shari...glad you are back, I will mail you later :)...I have just used normal white paper for now, but it makes the creases a bit squint as it's too thick...I think I will get some origami paper (proper)! I like all the patterns :)...I actually saw some nice paper online at Muji..may get some there??

Thanks all for the kind comment aboot the folks..yes it was sweet!! :)
