The thing about glitter is if you get it on you, be prepared to have it on you forever. Glitter is the herpes of craft supplies.

Home for good

I'm back!!

Andrea has been hard at work in my absence but I'm almost ready to get behind my sewing machine again.  I've been back in Canada for just over a week, returning from a trip of a life time, to adopt our beautiful little girl in China. I have so many photos to share and stories to tell, I'm going to spread it over a a few posts.

We spent our first week in Wuhan, Hubei Province in southern China.  Hubei is known as one of the furnace provinces, I can't describe in words the amount of sweat my body produced in that week.  It was amazing I was able to produce saliva.

Here are some photos of our first week in Wuhan.

Wuhan is the third largest city in China, with a population equally almost half the population of all of Canada.  The city is very industrial, with many high rise buildings and not a lot of historical architecture.  We visited The Yellow Crain Tower on our last day in Wuhan, and honestly it was our first glims of what we thought China looked like. (Aster's asleep in this photo, she loved sleeping in her carrier while Mommy and Daddy toured around)

The view from our hotel room

Here she is!  My beautiful little girl, Aster Elisabeth Yun on her last day in Wuhan.  Later that day we flew to Beijing for our second week in China.  I'll post some more photos soon.
