12 Tag of Christmas at The Classroom (day 8)

I haven't been crafting for a while, it started with a slow laptop, my Macbook is getting old and it is not compatible with a lot of my other things, and it has so much stuff in there, the speed is painfully slow, that take away some of the fun from blogging. Finally, DH got me my early Christmas present, I got my very first desk top, yes, I switch from a laptop to a desk top, I never have a desk top since I moved to NYC 14 years ago, not just because we are traveling a lot, I also knew that with rented apartments in NYC, we will have to move a lot too, so I just sticked with a Macbook for years, now that I know Vegas is going to be HOME, and carrying a Macbook has also becoming a chore for me when I travel, I decided to get a desk top. The price of window is much much cheaper than an Apple product, I can get the same thing I am having now for 1/3 of the price, but I am so used to Apple and too lazy to learn how to use window, so IMac is my choice, however, moving all the stuff I have on the Macbook to the IMac still takes time, and there are things that is different too, so I am really taking time to get used to the IMac.

I have a little tag today for.....

Our Beautiful World 176 ~ Peaceful

Back in the summer, I had a few bad months, life was in chaos and I was feeling depressed for the longest time, I needed a get-away so badly so we went to Oceano, CA for a few days just to be by the ocean.


we did pay a high price for this Airbnb rental, but the owner locked up the front bedroom, which is the one facing the ocean, so it was a bummer, however, from the living room downstairs, we are still able to get this view....


we walked on the beach every morning and evening, it was that peaceful feeling I longed for.....


I think my little boy agreed too....


we really love how peaceful it was by the ocean.
