I've always wanted to visit Prague and I got the chance to explore this beautiful city last fall.  It is a very beautiful city with a lot of beautiful scenery, buildings, and bridges.  My mom probably just arrived there, she left for Europe today.

Here are some highlights of my trip in Prague.

I'm back!

I've been absent ever since I have returned from California.  I have been working more these days and planning trips for my next escape.  Next week I am going to Seattle to visit my cousin and her family. Then next month I'll be making a trip out to Asia (Korea and Taiwan).

Today, I made some bread since we ran out.  I made Honey Oat because that is Frank's fav.  I made dinner rolls as well since I wanted some.  I have been adding chia seeds to my breads lately because it is one of those superfoods.  I like the texture it adds to the bread.

Now, a while ago, I said I would do a series about my vacation last year in Europe.  So here are some highlights from Berlin, Germany.

My flight back to Chicago is delayed.  I been out here in SoCal for a week or so, but it definitely feels like a lot longer.  I really didn't do much but see family.  I am not sure when my next trip out here will be, so only time will tell.

Right about now, I am sitting here in the airport blogging.  I should post some pictures from my trip, which is something I said I would do, but I guess you can say I have been slightly preoccupied.  It's snowing back in Chicago and I am not really looking forward to this February snow.  Perhaps Spring will be making an appearance really soon.

I want to make it out to DC for the cherry blossom festival in April so I should start looking for deals and see if I can make it happen.  Perhaps that should be a task for tomorrow.  Upon arrival today, I was going to head out to this party, but since I am delayed 2 hours I might have to pass on it.  It's a late event so perhaps it is for the better.

Still to come are some pictures from my trip last year in Europe.  I really want to do a blogging series on it, but I have been lallygagging around.  Perhaps I should make that my goal for March?

Sculpture from Museum Island in Berlin.  Excellent depiction of what happens when flights get delayed.
