Like Forrest Gump said, “Life is like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re gonna get.” I got this box full of hand-made chocolates from a famous Amsterdam confectionary last weekend from friends. I don’t think I’ll share them with hubby because they’re bad for his health. Oh the sacrifices I have to make in the name of love.


Angel Mom


The last time my mommy came to visit us in Europe, she bought this tealight candleholder in a flea market with my sister in Muenster, Germany. When she came back to Amsterdam and excitedly showed me her find, my heart melted as I looked at the three cherubs. The day she left after hubby and I brought her to the airport, I came home feeling a little bit flat…Then I saw these three on my altar with a note from Mommy.
