Saturday Night alive in Kuwait

Our lovely neighbor turned 23 this past weekend. She is an adorable sweetpea and from Wisconsin to boot. As we were the only people at the party who lived through the 70s, we sorta felt like the grand marshals of the parade. My favorite part of the night was when her darling husband looked at me with wide eyes and said ( in all seriousness)...Nadine, tell me about the 70s.

Our equivalent of a snow day

School was cancelled Sunday due to a dust out. Monday was bright and beautiful. As sands through the hourglass, so go the days of our lives ( reference to a soap opera I used to watch!)

One of the BEST birthday gifts I received

While travelling, i purchased the book "Souqs of Arabia" featuring wonderful photos from the main markets (souq) of the Gulf region. It shows beautiful scenes i have witnessed over the past four years when I either didn't have my camera or didn't have the ability to take a picture. I hope you enjoy these pictures of pictures I wish I had taken.
