Standing eggs

The pup kept telling me something about the turn of the new year which will happen on Feb 4 (which is why we have something planned) but I never realized what he was talking about until yesterday evening.

Li chun or lap chun (in Cantonese) is a solar term which signifies the beginning of Spring. If you're familiar with Chinese culture, then you'd recognize Qing Ming and Dong Zhi as some of these turn of seasons.

For me, it's not so much of the turning or beginning of any season, but more of an egg day :)

Li Chun is the one day of the year where it's supposedly easier to balance an egg on one end and it's said to only happen for 45 mins.

So yeah, watch out for our egg standing post soon!!!

Just came across a quote today and thought I'd like to add it here

"Don't count the days, but make the days count."

While it's a great idea to count the days to know how long we've been in each other's lives, but I think it's a much greater idea to make the best out of them instead :)

After all, as the puppy says - a great relationship has more misses than hits!

Much love,
