Where Was I?

Recently, I have been completely MIA and it is all because of my trip to Poland. Yes, I’ve been to Europe for a little over two weeks. The main reason for it was to just hug my mom and dad and I’m extremely happy I had a chance to do so.

It’s Been Over Three Years

I haven’t seen my parents, family and my best friend for over three years. My parents are not in the best health, that’s why I had to go there now and not later. That’s also why I had a complete time off to be with them 100%. I wasn’t posting on here nor on my Instagram.

Many people would say that when you have your own business, you never have time off. I believe though that if you really want something, you’re able to make it happen. I was responding to the emails, but I wasn’t doing anything besides that.

I would like to apologize to all of you for my disappearance. I had been planning on writing a post before, but I didn’t want to, because it was a complete surprise! No one knew about me coming to Poland except my hubby and my best friend :). This time off was very precious for me and I will never forget that time I spent with my parents.

Me, Myself And I

I did went to Europe by myself. Unfortunately, due to health problems, the doctor doesn’t let V fly. That being said, it wasn’t a fully enjoyable trip for me. I was missing my sweet husband even more than I thought is possible, seriously. Thank God for technology which gave us the ability to see and talk to each other every day. We were both counting the days and hours till we meet again so diligent.

Seeing V at the airport with my favorite flower in his hand and a box of chocolates was one of the happiest days of my life. I didn’t care that I had my luggage with me, I left it and hugged him so tight that I almost choked him.

Time Apart

Being so far from each other made us both realize how we cannot live without each other. We could survive, of course, but what is surviving without living?!

For instance, I had been excited to go back to Poland and eat some of my favorite dishes from back home. I did that, but they weren’t that good. Were they too salty or something? Not sure, but I’m sure that if my husband would be there next to me having the same dish as me, it would taste so much better! 🙂

The Trip

Everything went smoothly, except little flight delays. I do enjoy flying by planes so that was fun for me. I even had a chance to see in person the U.S. Air Force at the Warsaw Chopin Airport, due to US hosting Iran-focused global meeting in Poland.

With the six hour difference in time between here and Poland, I do still have a jet lag, but I do have in mind all the tips I wrote about here.

As I’ve mentioned before, I did want to spend some very quality time with my parents so I wasn’t going out or sightseeing since I already know Poland very well :). Nevertheless I did take some pictures, I want to share with you below.

  1. Glad you enjoyed your trip (as much as possible without your husband!) and got to spend some time with your parents 🙂 Sometimes, some time apart makes us realize how much we love and truly appreciate the special people in our lives.

  2. Interesting timing, since I have been planning a trip to Poland myself, if I can settle on the flight arrangements–always a big if, since I don’t enjoy flying as much as in the long ago past 🙂 Thanks for posting.

  3. Ww, Congrats in order to your trip to seeing parents, a nice experience in the freezing Europe and goodie time, you’re a woman of big heart , Ula nice places and you wrote with passion and love… you’re the one 😉😉

    1. Sorry about that and hopefully you’ll go a little north one day and visit Suwalki ☺🌻

      1. I’m afraid we bypassed this nice little town when we were visiting some friends further North who run a small artisan ceramic outlet around Gdansk.

  4. Family is way more important that social media. I am glad you took the time to see your parents without being distracted. Poland looks beautiful, I hope to visit someday. Hugs

  5. We have all missed you. The important thing is that you have enjoyed the warmth of the family. That is priceless. a rest in life, it suits us. Greetings.

  6. I know the feeling of being far from your family and missing your parents. I haven’t seen my parents and siblings for 6 years. Flying to Philippines cost a slot especially having children too. It breaks my heart everyday thinking when I’ll be able to hug my parents. I’m glad that you had quality time with your parents. Also, good to see you back here!

    1. Aww thank you so much, I’m glad I’m back. I hope you’ll see your family sooner than later ☺🌼

  7. I understand you so well that you wanted to see your parents, when they are not so fit anymore.
    However, two weeks away from the loved one is loooooong! 😉 Such a pity he couldn’t come with you.

    But then, the homecoming is so sweet!

    You had a lot more snow than us …

    1. Yes, there’s so much more snow ☺. 2 weeks were too long when it comes to seeing my hubby ☺🌷

  8. Bonsoir vous avez passé de bon moment avec vos parents et ces instants là sont magiques émouvants c’est inestimable est essentiel je suis heureuse pour vous c’est bien plus important que la vie virtuelle c’est la vie près de nos proches et rien n’est comparable
    Et les photos sont superbe merci

    1. I’m very happy my husband understands French and translates everything for me ☺. Thank you so much! ☺ 🌹

  9. So glad you spent time with your parents. The pictures look amazing, the Cooked House looks adorable and white orchids are also my absolute favorite flowers. I’m sure your husband was elated to have you home though. 😊🙏🏽

  10. What a wonderful trip you must have had. I am so glad you got to spend some quality time with your parents. My Dad moved back to Italy three years ago. He got married again – he was 80. This year will be 4 years. For the past 3 years he had been travelling back to Australia each year Last year he sold our family home in Sydney and won’t be flying across as much – it’s a long flight to Australia – 22 hours on average. I am planning a trip next year to visit him. It’s hard not to miss them 🌸

  11. All the people with good parents are blessed. I understand your feelings of beeing so close to your parents but missing your husband a lot.

  12. A truly beautiful share, young lady. It is nice to be home, and when home is in another country it becomes magical. You have a handle on magic. You are blessed and are not afraid to show it off.

  13. I understand. Sometimes, life gets hectic. I always enjoy reading your posts though when you do have time. Also, I wish your parents the best! If I follow you on Instagram, can you follow me as well? Thx! Take Care!
