Many of you may not know this but our Easter, for the Eastern Orthodox Church, is one week later than the Western Christian Easter. You see each year they change it around and once every four years we have it on the same day.
So we are celebrating Easter this Sunday for it is the holiest of holidays. And to celebrate I want to share the interior of Saint Andrew's Cathedral with you. You may have already seen the exterior in this post. But I wanted to save the interior for a separate post.
When spring rolls around it is magical in Greece. The trees bloom and the streets all smell like a florist shop because everyone has flowers everywhere.
It is also a time of reawakening and celebrating the Resurrection of Christ. I find that this is my favorite time of the year to go to church. There is a special feeling that permeates the liturgies which are usually held in the evenings leading up to Easter. With all these sweet memories knocking around in my brain I thought I'd take you back to put a spotlight on the impressive Saint Andreas or Andrew's Cathedral in Patra, Greece.
In this photo essay we will be exploring the exterior of the church and next month I'll be sharing the interior which deserves a post all it's own.
Welcome! Today I am celebrating! My third blog anniversary or as we sometimes call it blogoversary. I finally made it to three years and I must say I am very surprised. It has been a long road and a tough one at that. Last year I shared my favorite posts with you and I wanted to do that now but...doors got in the way!
Yes doors, that's how we celebrate around here! One door opens while another one closes. And so it goes!
It's the start of November and that means I get to share with you all my "photos of the day" that I upload on Facebook every month. These are from the month of October. And they were all picked by you!
This is my way of saying "thank you" to all of my followers. I have added the whole series on the bottom of this post.
I have been itching to write this post for about a month now. I wanted to let you all know about my decision to move to the US and why it's so fantastic to be fifty and over. But before I get to it let me invite you all to visit with my Fantastic Fifty lady friends who are also participating in this fantastic blog hop. Their links are on the bottom of this post.
We could say that this is a continuation of my blogging journey. Today I am going to talk to you about my recent move, my trip with a one way ticket.
I'm Mary and I recently moved to New York from beautiful Greece. I like to re-purpose and up-cycle anything that is old or looks like junk. Join me as we use our creativity to spark some life into old things. And do it frugally! You will also see lots of photography of my Greece and New York.
