Back from the Motherland!

Despite initial misgivings about literally spending 24/7 of the last 2 weeks with my family, I had a fantastic time! This was only the third time we've ever gone on vacation together since my parents owned a grocery store and had to work holidays too so it was a real blessing that now that we have our own lives and are (almost) all in our 30s, we can travel together as a family and not kill each other. :)

We arrived back early Sunday morning and I have been unpacking and doing laundry pretty much non-stop ever since. There's a semblance of order now that everything is mostly put away. My sister is actually in town with Piglet for an all-company meeting until Friday so I'll probably be back and forth to my mom's between now and then.

I have a ton of photos to sift through and will post them as soon as I can. In the meantime, here're a few teasers...

Oriental Pearl Tower, Shanghai

Bicycles for rent, Hangzhou

Summer Palace, Beijing

You are back already! I think I would have to stay in China for a month because it is so far away! Anyways, I hope you had a great time! I love the Summer Palace photo, and can't wait to see more pics! :D

Woohoo! Welcome back. I just noticed on your previous posts that the colour-combination and layout for my future condo kitchen matches yours very closely! I'll have to think about that pewter...

Those silk orchids look like the real thing.
