From the Dead Sea to Metulla

Dearest Gems:

I am back, and I missed you all!!

What a treat to come home to such INCREDIBLE thunderstorms...

I have to say.... I am LOVING this weather.... I love the moods, the sounds, the smells and textures...

I could just devour them all!!

We had an amazing time adventuring in the middle east, but I have to say, there is nothing like home.

The more I go away, the more I realize how much I love where I live.

How much I love my own bed...

On the baby front, things are amazing...

My little one is kicking and flipping and I can feel the baby 90% of the time which is a super profound experience,

I sometimes just sit in awe watching my tummy jolt and roll... There are no words to describe this sensation.

Babe and I did great in Israel, we did all that we went to do... We floated in the dead sea, we swam in desert waterfalls, tasted the delicious and delicate foods and sites of Jerusalem, picked Cherries and Peaches up north and of course spent some sweet family time...

Our biggest accomplishment is that we climbed Masada and even walked down the Mountain afterwards!!

We got up at about 3:30 in morning to climb in the dark and reach the top for sunset....

What a treat

What history

What ancientness.

I could go on forever, but I won't.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so here are some photos for your eyes delight and soon enough,

I offer some new gems, new pieces and new expressions...
