Note: This post was drafted few weeks ago and I just found time to post it 😉
When my husband surprised me by serving coffee in bed for me this Saturday, that’s when I had a feeling that the weekend was going to be eventful and memorable!
After much debate, we bought bikes this summer and it was not until this weekend we had a chance to really enjoy them. After a late breakfast, we headed to Kingston train station and started riding on the South County Bike Path
Its a 8 mile bike path and after that you could ride on the road alongside the traffic to head down to the Narraganset Town Beach. This is the farthest we have biked so far and it was a wonderful experience. The path was well laid with rest stops along the way.
2013 was a memorable year, a year of many FIRSTs as it was the first year of my marriage and I have trapped a lot of memories of the year using Instagram!
This is a picture taken from our first summer together. We played a lot of sport together, or at least we planned to do so 😉 But we did enjoy one Saturday evening playing Shuttle and Cricket at the Bristol Colt State park.
This was my first read from C S Lewis collection and turned out to be the best book I’ve ever read. I also spent this year reading a lot of Christian books.
A picture to remind us of the first fireworks we watched together at our favorite Oakland Beach on the 4th of July.
I always consider my husband as a Prince who brought me to my dreamland. I got to see and experience a lot of things that I had just seen in magazines and read about in the novels. One such place is 5th Avenue!
This is the first Bible my husband gifted me!
Although I have grown plants and cared for them in the past, there is something about this cute little home garden that we setup on our patio this summer that feels close to the heart 🙂
My first fall experience!
We used to spend time at the Guitar center doing our favorite things: He playing the guitars of his choice, me admiring him play and snapping the moments!
I discovered a new hobby this year, crochet and made a lot already! Caps, Scarves, headbands, coasters….
For our first wedding anniversary, we went to the White Mountains and had lots of wonderful experiences! It was a great way to end the year 🙂
Thanks to Instagram for making memories 🙂
The beauty of fall is creating a magical feeling and is just invigorating all the senses! We went on a walk to soak in the colors and just say WOW! Because, it’s pretty much beyond words. So here are some of the best shots from our first fall photo walk as a couple 🙂
Being at home after years of professional work was a little hard to adjust. So I filled my hours with activities. I tried new recipes, learnt how to crochet, started a new blog and then I started gardening. Initially I started with small shrubs in the winter. But when the summer was at its peak, we invested on a little home garden in the patio.
This bee is our new and frequent visitor in the garden!
I have been waiting for this click a really long time! Finally caught the squirrel running along the cables overlooking our patio.
We tried to make best use of the bright and sunny day. So we checked off something from our list this Sunday that we had been wanting to do for a long time! Yes, the cliff walk! The last time we were there, it was still the early days of spring and the icy cold winds were really a thrill.
But this time was no less thrill either. It was perfect timing when we got a perfect parking spot and walked down the beginning of the trail that we spotted this beautiful rainbow! It was thrilling indeed, how the rainbow is a mark of God’s special promise to mankind.
Every time I peeped below the fence to take a look at the mighty ocean beneath, it gave my head a whirl. With beautiful, huge and historic mansions on one side and the waves of the Atlantic lapping on the rocky hills on the other, the cliff walk is a treat to behold.
Plus, it was as romantic as it could ever get, to hold hands with my beloved, and walk the trail, whilst the winds of the sea lashed our cheeks. It was another chance to witness how awesome our Creator is!
It was a perfectly warm Saturday afternoon with the mercury levels shooting high above. We headed to the Mystic Aquarium in Connecticut. We had the Ocean State Library pass for the Mystic Aquarium that knocked off twelve bucks from the entrance ticket. (These passes are available for borrowing one day, applicable for two adults ($6) and two children ($4) )
Sea life has always amazed me, and with the recent visit to the creation museum and church sermons on Genesis, it has all the more made me wonder on the beautiful creation of God on the fifth day, the sea creatures!
And God said, “Let the water teem with living creatures, … So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living thing with which the water teems and that moves about in it, according to their kinds, … And God saw that it was good. God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, … And there was evening, and there was morning—the fifth day. Genesis 1:20-22
I witnessed sea life of various kind, shapes, color and texture. Some were pleasant and beautiful, some were unpleasant and scary, nevertheless all were wonderful. There was the spotted jellyfish, striped zebra fish, clown fish and anemones that were a treat to the eyes! Some fishes like the Eel, Stingray and octopus were a little (actually a lot!) scary!
Out in the open, were the treats of the Arctic ocean the Penguins and Mystic Aquarium’s favorite display, the Beluga Whale. There were four of them, huge, white, and pretty! They have been trained very well and were very friendly, posing for the pictures 🙂
It was the beginning of a long weekend, 3rd of July. We decided to watch the fireworks at the Oakland beach in Warwick. Excitement was in the air several miles ahead the beach for we were held in an endless line of traffic. So we parked the car at the next available spot and walked couple of miles and settled on our favorite spot on the rocks near the shore just in time for the fireworks! And when it started the sky lit up and drenched us in an array of colors! 🙂
