June 16: Away we go.
La revedere, Cluj-Napoca. We’ll see you again. We will.

June 10: Bye-bye, bunnies.
In true Romanian style, we threw ourselves a going-away party on Sunday. Despite trying to give away many of our things, we were inundated with thoughtful, personal, touching gifts, from an ostrich egg to this book of Romanian photographs being inscribed by its giver. It was a wonderful, albeit bittersweet, party.

April 20: 10!
Today is our 10th wedding anniversary. We celebrated with five loads of laundry, a sick husband, grilled cheese, and family movie night … an ordinary day in the extraordinary life we’ve built together. (Wrapping by me, smiley flourish by Lollipop.)

April 15: Easter, the sequel.
Today was Orthodox Easter in Romania — the day most Romanians celebrate. A friend invited us over for a traditional meal of vişinată, ciorba de perişoare, sarmale, slanina, and homemade wine and chocolate cake. She also had a basket full of eggs dyed in the traditional way — with leaves and petals that make designs when the eggs are colored with red and yellow onion peels. The kids loved the eggs and cleared out at least half of her basket. Paşte Fericit to all (again)!

April 14: Bridge over troubled cobblestones.
After our night in the frozen wilderness, we headed for the more familiar urban haven of Sibiu. We climbed the clock tower you see in the distance (134 stairs) and stood on the Bridge of Lies (the vantage point for this picture). We sampled fresh, hot donuts drizzled in chocolate at the Easter fair in Piața Mare. And we played fetch with the hotelier’s Golden Retriever, Tasha … It’s all in a weekend’s adventures for us!

We slept in an igloo Friday night. How was your weekend?

April 9: Manic Monday.
I’ll never forget the first time my husband told me about Holy Thursday and Easter Monday. Not having been raised Catholic, I thought he was joking about all the “extra” holidays surrounding Easter! Since today is Easter Monday and my husband’s birthday, I thought it was a perfect time to share that story … Wait … There really is an Easter Monday, right??

April 7: Easter Eve
Tomorrow’s Easter. Well, for some Romanians. For those who are Orthodox, Easter isn’t until next Sunday. For us, that means we get an extra week of soaking up this holiday here and the many customs that go along with it. And perhaps, two visits from the Easter bunny.

March 25: Paris or bust!
… And we arrived in Paris this afternoon to sunshine, budding trees, and the always-luminous Eiffel Tower.
