Of course I squeezed in some shopping!

There wasn't a lot of time to shop on the trip, but I did manage to pick up this amazing cushion cover in Budapest. There was this lovely little shop called Folkart Craftsman's House that sells original Hungarian handicraft products. This felt piece is embroidered with a traditional applique design. I'm rather in love with it.

Vacation Photos!!!

So I'm back from my trip to Hungary! I didn't mention before that I was going cuz it's probably not the best idea to advertise on the internet that your home's going to be empty for a while... It was a family vacation - my sister, brother-in-law and I took my Dad to see the country his family came from. It's been a lifelong dream of his to see where his parents grew up, and I'm so glad we were finally able to make it happen. This also happened to be my first trip to Europe! It kind of blew my mind a little ;) The pics above were all taken in Budapest. Such a beautiful city with so much history. I was taking pictures like a crazy person. Here are a few. I'm still trying to organize them so I'll share more later.

P.S. Jet lag sucks.
