MOTHER'S DAY AND HASTA LUEGO

Unfortunately it's going to be yet another Mother's Day without my mom and grandma around (they're in Finland), but I did send out nice cards for them. And this time they actually got there on time. My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer and went through the operation to remove it about 3 months ago and is recovering well now. I think this experience has made her adapt completely different view on nutrition and health. She is learning so much about superfoods and holistic approach to health and hoping to create a long healthy life for herself. Yay mommy!
When my parents were here last summer I introduced my mom to green smoothies and now she makes them at home for herself. I just wish I could get dad to drink them too. He actually tried it once and didn't think it was bad at all. But old men are so stubborn to learn new habits.
Anyways, I wish all the mothers out there wonderful Mother's Day! Keep spreading the love!
P.S. I'll be gone for vacation in the paradise today and doubt that we'll bring any electronic devices with us so I'll see ya'll in a week or so!

  3. "I donno whatcha thinks" but I could easily see you work in some kind of healthy living/lifestyle counseling. It just comes so naturally for you... Would you like it?

    I actually like your job hunt look. The figure-embracing blazer just does it for my fashion eye in the most interesting of ways. But then again, I see what you mean by wanting some new winds in. The bag is lovely.

    Make the most of your dear days of - I know that over that side of the Big Pond they are even more appreciatory because rare.
