31.3.10







Mother, sister and me.
Can't remember how long ago it was since we had so much time for eachoter last.
We had spring in Prague. Soon it will be summer, and I will turn 40. This trip - an
early birthday present from them to me.


Stymie, by Julie Cloutier and Clarie Nereim. I do love.

oh what a beautiful present!

it's been long that i've seen prague,but i loved it.

the memory that remained most vividly with me is a walk on the island between old and new town. we went in spring and the big, big chestnut trees were just blooming. it was like walking right into a sudek photograph.

have a good time!

what a lovely present...
never been to Praha, but it's on my list of towns to visit.
the pics are great, hope to see more.
glad you had a good time there.
ah, another thing: you don't look 40 at all, in this picture particularly you look like a child :)
...you know what I mean.

oh that does look and sound like a wonderful present. i echo Alessandra, you do not look 40! or even, more accurately, 39!

LISEN & STINA said...

va fint! grattis i förskott!!
färgskalan är precis sådär "before spring", härligt. Liksom innan den riktiga grönskan kommer igång o naturen torkat till lite, grus damm och varmare luft!

How amazing to have a family holiday in Prague!! what super nice present.

julia said...

oh i love prague!

there´s one cafe in wonderful art deco style where you get great "berliner", we call it like that in Germany, when you order a cafe!
they come with a rolling table and you can chose one- DELICIOUS!
i forgot the name of the cafe...i´m sorry!
i like the east european melancholie you can feelin that city and that it is not so snobby...well,i felt that when i was there after the flood several years ago... i hope it didn´t change!

have fun girls!

Oh Elizabeth- I will turn 49 in two weeks and I am trying to come to terms with that- I have to admit its scarry-but then I also have learned to trust that when something is taken away, something else can be discovered- (see, I said discovered, not 'given')HAHA-
Prague looks like a must-what a lovely present-

Letter Paper Flower said...

what a lovely group picture. Doesn't time with people you love seem like such a luxury now? I love across the country from my mom and sister and long for time with them often!

Maria said...

Fint! Får mig att tänka på när min mamma fyllde 60 år. Då rövade jag och min syster bort henne och reste till Helsingfors. Vi hade tre fina, nära dagar där, som jag minns med mycket värme - nu när min syster är i himmelen och min mamma inte är pigg.

isoinpapu said...

Just the best present! I so like these pictures.

40. Yeah, it´s ok. Took me a while to figure it out, but i guess i´m getting used to it. Kind of weird thinking about myself beeing "big", adult.Phooh.
