Woot woot! Happy 2017, friends! I hope you all had a lovely and restful holiday season filled with fun and love!
As you might have guessed, Mr. Bingley and have returned from Colombia and are now back into our work and home routines. 🙂 Thank you for all the lovely wishes and kind comments posted while we were gone! It was the best thing ever to come home and read my blog and come back to this wonderful community!
Before we left for Colombia, we celebrated Christmas with my family and like they usually do, they spoiled me with Jane Austen goodies!
Awesome Jane Austen glasses my mom found at BAM!
And quite by coincidence, my brother got me some Jane Austen coasters!
Some new reads.
I really love this series by Jessica Fellowes!
I heard of these two from Sophia Rose and put them on my wishlist. 🙂 They are modern-day Pride and Prejudice stories that I didn’t know of before!
And I received a very special gift from my Colombian family as well! Looks like they know what I like!
The super cool thing about this edition is it is bilingual!! With one page being in Spanish while the other page is the same thing in English! What a great way for me to improve my Spanish!!:)
While in Colombia, we spent a lot of our time with Mr. Bingley’s family whom we love so much. They take such good care of us when we come, make themselves completely available to spend time with us, and feed us until we beg them to stop!! LOL!
Aside from family, one of things I love most about Colombia is THE FOOD!! And I had my fill of delicious fruit that just DOES NOT compare to the fruit we eat here in the US!
Instead of hotdogs and ice cream being sold on street corners, it is fruit! Ah! Such a wonderful way of life!
And while in Colombia we did enjoy some ‘deportes extremos’ extreme sports like we usually like to do too! One new one was going in caves! (Don’t have the pictures from this excursion yet.) Which was definitely not tame since most of the time the caverns were filled with water and you were walking and climbing on uneven rocks!
We also went on another ‘canotaje’ rafting excursion and that is always fun! But this time we went out around 4:00p.m. and the water was a little bit too cold!!
Our guide had a GoPRO on his helmet which was awesome!
Crossing my fingers this video works! It took an hour to figure out how to upload it! 😉
But now we are back Netherfield and enjoying the ‘hibernating’ season here! When the weather is this cold we stay in our pjs and make hot cocoa each weekend and snuggle!
