The good news is that the weather has been amazing. A very pleasant break from the cold and snow/rain/clouds. I’m talking spring like around these parts. Even when it gets cold again our break has been so awesome you actually realize it won’t be long till the flowers really start popping and we can hang our laundry out to dry! (this being the reason for me not blogging at all, not to mention when the weather gets warmer we get busier, this is also good!)
The bad…well, there really isn’t any bad in my life. I have a beautiful family, cool dogs and cats, a great home, fantastic friends. All I can do is be thankful. Especially since the bad is really sad for us, and the rest of the world.
The sad…the devastating earthquake in New Zealand.
Many of you have inquired whether this has affected our New Zealand family, and fortunately it has not, as far as we know. We know that the Bliss-Stick factory and family are safe since they are on the North Island, Christchurch is on the South Island. We do have friends that are from Christchurch but currently live on the West Coast of the South Island. It has been some time since we spoke to Kirsty and Tim. All we can do is wish the best for them and their families.
My husband scours the internet and reads article to stay connected, keep updated. The death toll rises and still many people are missing.
As for Christchurch, it was a heavily historical city for the country. Beautiful and trendy, good music and great energy. Read more hear about this awesome city. It is extremely saddening and lays heavy on our hearts that this city will never truly be the same as it was. Not just for the structure but for it residents as well. However, they are a strong community and strong country. They will work hard to achieve the cities greatness once again. There is no doubt about it!
