One Year... and Counting!
Yesterday marked one year that we've been back in China, one year that we've been in this apartment. What makes it especially momentous is that we've been in this apartment for one year and we have NO plans of moving - that's a first in our 13 years of marriage! Usually by now we'd already be unpacking boxes in our new place. I have to admit, it feels a little strange. It's going to take some getting used to, this new-found semblance of stability. We've both been feeling a little restless over the past several weeks, and at first we weren't sure why - until we realized that subconsciously our bodies have been gearing up for the change of scenery that would normally be coming.
So, to commemorate the day and to prove (to ourselves, mostly) that we have no plans of going anywhere anytime soon, we went out and bought a rice cooker. Nothing says stability like a bulky kitchen appliance, right?
Aren't those flowers gorgeous? Hubby got them for me the other night. They're so lush IRL - this picture just doesn't do them justice!
