My Beijing Trip, Part I.

I spent the last ten days in Beijing, China without Alan and Bridgette. I missed them terribly the entire time, but also appreciated having the space to relax, rejuvenate, and be re-inspired. I attribute this ‘need’ of mine to being an Aquarius; luckily for me, my Pisces hubby has been extremely supportive and encouraging, because he knows I will come back a better person!

My mom, sister, and niece joined me for the first 3 days of my trip from Hong Kong, and we had a great time together just eating and shopping. On the last day, my mom and sister booked spa treatments at the hotel, so I got to bond with my lovely niece Brianne by taking her to a lavish afternoon tea at the Ritz-Carlton!

Our first meal in Beijing was a dumpling feast. The menu had 70 different kinds of dumplings. I think we only chose 5 out of the 70.
