斗志昂扬贝宝人,撸起袖子加油干

在贝宝的第二个月,Boss为了庆祝三月份业绩突破月度新高,组织大家来了一场说走就走的旅行。于是我拖家带口的报名了,怎么辜负如此大好春光?公司80%都是妹子,当然是有好多美女照片啦,想欣赏妹纸照片敬请期待下一期,容我几天时间修片,这一期主打风景篇。

那边有一片美丽的桃花树林,也就是最近的热播剧中的三生三世十里桃林,出发前众妹纸都跃跃欲试要去偶遇折颜上神。一棵棵桃树桃树应经长得很高大,可以已经过了花期,大部分桃花度已经走向衰败了,枝头已经不复一片繁花似锦的壮烈,有些小桃子已经冒出枝头来,很艰难才能拍到五个花瓣都完好的桃花,唯有漫山遍野的油菜花,开的如火如荼。

跟Ethan漫步在一片花海中,各种角度拍照片,讲真, 怎么拍都是美的。满山姹紫嫣红,花团锦簇,美不胜收。

本来以为要下雨,到了湖州,几乎已经是初夏,稍微一动就满身的汗,失策只带了雨伞,我最应该带的是遮阳帽。

城山沟

这张是我的最爱,缩小之后似乎少了很多神韵,如美人手托着尖尖角的亭子,有一种旖旎之美。

右下角那是半个我,某猪拍风景照,一不小心,我入镜的原因吧。 Continue Reading

上方山动物园

趁着最近空气质量好到爆,元旦的时候带娃去了泰州溱湖动物园,这周带小家伙去了上方山动物园。在娃一岁半的时候去过几次,总是一脸茫然的跟我们跑,一晃眼已经两年过去了,这次是彻底看懂小动物了,稍微有点逛公园的乐趣。遛弯回来后,还是嚷嚷着明天还要去动物园,明年再带他过来,他估计会更开心的。

进动物园最右边的是猛禽区,有猎豹、东北虎、狮子‘狼’等等,不过因为去的有点晚,食肉动物们清一色的都躲到屋里睡觉,偶尔出来遛弯,完全没有丛林大王的风范。最受Ivan欢迎的是棕熊跟黑熊,似乎现在只有是熊就是熊大熊二,而且必须标配两只。

上方山动物园狮子

本来Ivan一直骑着Ethan肩膀上,认识各种动物,到了各种老虎的场馆,说他觉得有点受不了,让我们赶紧走,以后得多带我家Ivan出来见世面,男孩子怎么可以害怕笼子里面的老虎。

上方山动物园老虎

当然最让他开心的,是在动物园的小超市里面给他买了好多鱼,吃的那个欢快。每次出去买东西,我都会给他钱,让他自己买东西,前几次买pizza,或者买饮料都没有成功,昨天成功的自己点好了KFC,站在服务员面前,大声的说他要鸡腿,蛋挞跟薯条,外加四包番茄酱,并且付了钱,简直棒棒哒。失败是成功之母啊~ Continue Reading

穹窿山-天下第一智慧山

周日带着Ivan去爬穹窿山。其实穹窿山相较于我去过N次的天平山、灵岩山,知名度甚低。也是昨天去了那里的孙武文化园才知道战国时期的孙武即隐居于此,成就了名震千古的《孙子兵法》。估计这也是“天下第一智慧山”这一称呼的由来。

苏州的文化是温文儒雅,内敛平和、温润隐逸的。穹窿山,虽具吴地之巅的气势,但它也正是承续着这样的文脉,山温水雅,不张不扬,隐逸而更具深沉,俊秀而更有内涵。

巍巍一座穹窿山,吸引了春秋战国之孙武,西汉之朱买臣,宋代之韩世忠,明朝之建文帝,清朝之乾隆,民国之李根源,到此隐居。

穹窿山-天下第一智慧山

拉着Ivan一路欢声笑语,游玩着这从未谋面的穹窿山。幽深的林中小道,没有多少游人,长长的御道(当年乾隆的御道)上几乎只有我们一家三口,隐居应该是大大适宜的。 Continue Reading

旺山夜色,苏城桂花香

白天的旺山绿意浓浓,郁郁葱葱,山山水水错落有致,花儿殷红绚丽。旺山的夜晚显得分外安宁、和谐,那么怡然自乐,一派和谐、安逸的乡间村落景象,不愧是苏州吴中区最美村庄。山路曲曲弯弯,打开车窗,秋风拂面,夹杂了桂花的清香,沁人心脾。

一路上,洁净而整齐,路上为了绕道石路抄近路,一不小心迷路了,经过了一个导航上都找不到的城中村,这才记起是旺山是在城郊外。

旺山距离苏州城区约45分钟路程,远离喧嚣,回归自然。

Spring

Spring has officially spring in Suzhou. Everything seems to be prettier and everyone seems to be a little happier. Or maybe that’s just me.

It’s raining all day long last weekend. Due to the bad weather, Ethan and I planned to just hang out at home. But then we thought it might be fun to go out for dinner and movie.

Last Saturday we went to the Shangfangshan. They hold something like the “flower festival” and the entire place is covered with cherry blossom trees and tulips in every color imaginable. We walked with our little Ivan in the park, and took some pictures.

We went to one of our favorite restaurants, 朝日屋(I don’t know if it has an English name) for lunch. It’s light, clear, down home Japanese food and it was just what I needed. Continue Reading

Lost myself

Too many thoughts. Too many things I want to do. Too much sleep I’m not getting.
I don’t know if it’s been evident, but I have been busy doing things like shopping new suits, shoes, bags for my husband and son. It seems like there’s just too much going on. And I don’t have enough time for myself.
I just do things that could meet my husband’s needs, and try to make him happy. If he wants to eat hot spot, so do I. otherwise if he doesn’t want to order a steak, neither do I. I think a lot of people go through this, but it’s truly been hard for me. I’m a person who wants to be able to give everything to my husband and son. I get my greatest joy by making them happy. The best presents for me are actually in finding the best presents for them. I want everyone to be nicer to me.
Anyway, it’s been a little hard for me to find the balance lately. I feel like I’ve just been so absent. I have hopes, plans, and dreams, but I’ve really struggled with it lately. I want to be excited, but so many days, I’m just trying to be happy. I worked so hard to make everyone else happy – because in the end, that’s what makes me happy.
I know I can’t be the only one who struggles with this. I know I’m not alone. So now I’m asking you – where do you find the balance?
