ok! So where did July go and how come we are now in August?

What is happening to 2015? Why is it in such a hurry?

Just last week I was thinking to myself how fast the year is flying by but how grateful I am for all the things that I have been able to experience. I am more than grateful for all that I have, for all that I do not have and for all that I will have. The future has never looked more brighter than the way 2015 has made it seem.

I would very much love to do a recap of the year so far but maybe that will be done in another post. Can you believe that I am already doing week TWENTY of The Happening, the Good the Bad and the Ugly series? I can not believe it but I am so grateful to all that read this blog and support it always.

Getting down to last weeks happeningsLithuania 2010

The Good

I mentioned last week that Boo and I drove 28+ hours from UK to Lithuania, it was such a long journey though I spent majority of it sleeping whilst boo drove but when I wasn’t sleep boo and I were catching up on the match needed time alone we’d been needing for a long time now.

I stayed in Lithuania for almost 5 days and boo made sure it was the best 5 days ever, he took me ice skating which I have never done before in my life – let me be honest I held on to the rail the entire time even with boo holding me whilst I attempted to stake.

Whilst in Lithuania boo took me go karting, boy am I glad I went. I had never go karted before unless you include the carnival little cars. I spent the first 2 minutes of our 10 minutes braking than accelerating and biting my gums until they bleed then the remainder 8 I spent it chasing boo on the track it was awesome and I came last.

One of the days it was really hot so we went to Trakai such a beautiful historic place in Lithuania and went rowing, this was my second time visiting Trakai and 2nd time rowing too.

The Bad

Boo is staying another week in Lithuania and I had to fly back Monday for work I was so distraught, I know I miss him but this was the first time I felt like life was unfair ๐Ÿ™

The entire time I was in Lithuania I did not take one picture, boo took lots but he said there his for the viewing. So I have no pictures to share with you of the awesome country Lithuania really is except for the one above of me in 2010. Boo took a pic of me on the highest point in Kaunas, this year we visited this same area again but at night for night view

The Ugly

None – thank God. Life is as should be.

How has your week been so far?

    A 18 hour drive sounds crazy! I’m glad your boo was able to drive while you slept – I make my hubby drive so I can sleep too haha ๐Ÿ™‚

      I am very fortunate that boo drove since I do not yet have a licence but it was fun

    You must have been having the time of your life if you didn’t stop to snap photos!

    Awwww sounds like y’all had a great time!!! Long car rides can be great sometimes.

    • August 8, 2015 / 4:26 pm

      We did and I agree long rides can sometimes be great

    This year truly is going WAAY too fast!! That is amazing you were able to go to Lithuania! I’ve been to Scotland and England, but I highly envy people who live abroad because other countries are so much closer.

    • August 8, 2015 / 4:28 pm

      I know right, its flying by too fast. I am yet to visit the states but am sure its just as beautiful

    Long car rides with your love is the best time to bond, communicate and regroup with each other. Glad your year is looking so awesome. Hope the rest is just as amazing

      Thank you Donna, I didn’t realise it until we took the trip.

  7. August 7, 2015 / 1:40 am

    Oh that all sounds like so much fun! Hah, when I go ice skating I hold onto the rail too. It sounds like you guys had a great time. Don’t worry, he’ll be back in no time.

    • August 8, 2015 / 4:31 pm

      Thanks Leslie, I need to learn how to stake so that next time I can skate properly with him.

  8. August 6, 2015 / 11:06 pm

    Oh wow, I don’t know how you could survive such s long car journey.

    • August 8, 2015 / 4:32 pm

      I still don’t know how either but we did and I am glad about it lol

  9. August 6, 2015 / 9:08 pm

    I could not imagine such a long car journey. You are much stronger than I. LOL…I am so glad you got to try things for the first time, and had fun.

    • August 8, 2015 / 4:33 pm

      Hahaha thanks, I never knew I could do it until I did it lol. Thanks

  10. August 6, 2015 / 2:00 pm

    Wow I thought going on a 3-4 hour journey was bad! I’m glad you had such an amazing time! It really does suck being separated after spending such a good time together! ๐Ÿ™

    • August 6, 2015 / 8:48 pm

      It absolutely sucks but I get to see him soon so am comforted by that.

  11. August 6, 2015 / 1:36 pm

    Sounds like you’ve got yourself a keeper there! Ice skating is fun but perilous, I’m rubbish at it! Never been to Lithuania though, would you recommend it? ๐Ÿ™‚

    • August 6, 2015 / 8:49 pm

      I highly recommend it, it’s such a beautiful country with so much to offer. He’s a keeper indeed

  12. August 6, 2015 / 1:05 pm

    Love that there’s no ugly section! Lithuania sounds lovely, I’m glad you had such a great time ๐Ÿ™‚

    • August 6, 2015 / 8:53 pm

      Thanks you Katya.

  13. August 6, 2015 / 12:53 pm

    I really love that the Good section is so big and there isn’t anything ugly at all.

    • August 6, 2015 / 1:14 pm

      Thank you, I do too

  14. August 6, 2015 / 9:32 am

    I love this idea of focusing on all aspects of life and really noticing what is happening and how it makes you feel. It is so easy for all of us to let the bad memories overwhelm the good but doing this really focuses the mind. I might just have to borrow your idea and journal about the positives and negatives in my own life. Thank you for sharing.

    • August 6, 2015 / 12:30 pm

      Thank you Teresa and you’re welcome to use the idea.

  15. August 6, 2015 / 9:21 am

    Glad you had an amazing time! time always seem to fly when having fun doesn’t it
    have a nice day ๐Ÿ™‚


    • August 6, 2015 / 9:52 am

      Thanks Melissa, it certainly does. Have a lovely day too.
