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
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
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.

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?
