Year End Resolution

It’s the last week of the year and the crammer in me wanted to get busy with home projects that I’ve been putting off since time immemorial. So instead of coming up with my New Year’s Resolution list, I created my “Year-end Resolution” list. Resolution #1: Declutter Clutter is a state of disorder which stemmed […]

Labas Lietuva! People (Part 3 of 3)

and my favourite photo with our little photographer

PEOPLE The highlight of our Lithuania trip was the daily meet-ups for 9 consecutive days. Having to meet a new set of people everyday was exhilarating! It felt like we were on a speed dating session. Only difference is, they were not strangers but friends and family members. MY LITHUANIAN FAMILY There was a stark […]
