Tango para piano.

For our honeymoon we went to Buenos Aires. Some say its called the Paris of South America. It was amazing in every way, and I will cherish that city. Best steak, beautiful architecture, rich in history, and the countryside, oh the countryside. I clearly recall my new husband being the only human I really spoke to the entire time on the account of me knowing 10 phrases in spanish (at the most, including Hola), and him being fluent.

If you know Blake, you know he loves talking to people. If you really know Blake, you know he likes talking to people in spanish even more.

Anyways, Buenos Aires is famous for the Tango, which is why we chose this art work/ old sheet music. Which by the way, Buenos Aires has the best antique stores, and of course my favorite was this old antique camera store where I bought one of my favorite box cameras- Argentine original Siena.

So we got this sheet music to frame as our souvenir (which I think are overrated unless you get one or two things that you will actually use, because otherwise I think photographs best). Well, holding myself to this 'I-only-buy-souvenirs-I-will-use' idea, I finally got us a frame for it.  

I am really choosy about my frames. Which as you can see leads me to using tacks in the mean time. 

Heres to target gift cards we still have from our wedding.

Sometimes I like the same picture side  by side. No reason.

Way up here and a car

20120719-195720.jpg So I really like this car.

Right now; this very second, and the seconds before this second, and the days before and even the weeks and months before this second, I have been the happiest.

Lately my prayers are 90% gratitude and 10% thankfulness. I am on the top of this peak looking out over the opposition of highs and lows, and from up here, life looks beautiful. But because I have been in my valleys, I know that they will eventually come. But that they will rise again into high peaks, and that sometimes I will even have to walk across seemingly boring planes.

But man oh man, I will soak up the sun on this mountain.

20120716-001506.jpg This is me. Blogging from Good Airs. Excuse me, I mean Buenos Aires.

I must begin this post by saying that Blake and I like the outside a lot. We like nature, and green things. I also, very much, enjoy and can appreciate an amazing city. I love the thick cultures packed in little places, the restaurants are my favorite and site seeing is always a must. But Needless to say, I can't spend too much time in a city before I am ready for some time outside, in the country.

I blame my family.

Well, originally we planned a few days in Buenos Aires and then the majority of our trip in Iguazu Falls. Which is apparently amazing and beautiful. Flights looked great, and then, we find out its their winter break here. Flights have been full so we have had a lot of city time.

Maybe too much city time.

Time to go home and do laundry and head back out. Next stop (we think) Honduras!

PS. This really is an incredible city. I will post muchos fotos and stories soon.
