The other day was one of those magical days that you want to remember forever.
These little kiddos were playing at Nana and Tata’s “farm”, some way or another they came up with the brilliant idea of tying the wagon to the bicycle…and that is where the magic began.
This, this is what childhood is about, learning through play. I was so in love with what my eyes were witnessing that I grabbed my camera and chased them around snapping pictures.
Children do not need fancy toys, all they need is the right terrain to sprout their imaginations.
Dispite the age difference among them, they came together to play and discover, the big ones taking turn on the bike, the little ones sharing the wagon and making sure everyone grabbed on. This, my friends, is free learning at its best.
I even joined the fun!
For my first roll of film in New Zealand, I went to the Botanic Gardens again. They’re so lovely; lots of spectacular plants and gorgeous views! I won’t be able to process my film until I go to Auckland in June, but I took along my digital camera as well. It couldn’t miss out on the adventure (I’ve decided its name is Pachelbel, since it is a Canon). Anyway. It was a beautiful day and perfect for photographing the roses. The rose garden is huge. I found myself wanting to catalog every flower with a photo, but that was a bit overwhelming, so I only did a few.

The last few days have been an adventure. I was on an inspiration high after meeting so many inspiring women in Boston. (who I’ll be sharing with you in the next few weeks to come, so keep an eye out) The day after I flew back to Chicago, I hopped in a car and drove to Rehoboth, Delaware with some friends.
It’s a quaint little beach town on the Atlantic. I’ve had my fair share of sea food the past few days, which makes me happy. The nights by the shore get a little breezy, so I’ve been wearing my Carhartt Country Girl Chambray Shirt. It’s light, but keeps you warm enough against the ocean winds.
I really enjoy wearing this top. There are so many ways I’m planning to wear it in the upcoming days. There’s a sweet little ruffle down the front and I love the front pocket. Get one for yourself here.
This shot I took on my first day on Koh Phangan. My friend who was my guide brought me here for some reason. And from that day it became my favorite beach when I want to escape from hustle road when there are many new island visitors. – Read my story here

Vacations are…not anymore just vacations. We are trying now to merge the relaxation and beautiful places with personal benefits, like health. For long time were very popular the spa vacations, which were not quite affordable because were based mainly on expensive care, luxury places and so on. I never liked the idea to pay so much money for some massage in a luxury hotel full of rich people.
