week recap -April 25th-May 01st

Can't believe the month of April went so fast. On the other hand, offline life was pretty full, so this explains !

Here's a recap of what happened since last Friday.

CLOCKWISE FROM TOP RIGHT :
Lavender on my windowsill.
New wooden bento box I've recently acquired. So beautiful.
Branches & ripples in micro urban puddle.
Very fragrant & really big roses from my inlaws' garden.
Last Saturday I help my mother in law purging her clothes. We took 219 clothes off her wardrobe. Can you believe that ?
Pitou & balls of papers going to the recycling bin.

Last Monday, school break was over, and on Tuesday, thanks to my mom who took care of the boys, hubby & I went on a post-birthday day trip to Paris.
