Omiya Park Hanami!

Because we didn't want to go to Tokyo for hanami (flower-viewing), we opted to go to Omiya Park instead.

And it was one of our best decisions ever, haha!

It wasn't that crowded and the trees were really in full bloom!

Talked about our dreams, filled the first pages of our hobonichi journals together, did some people-watching, laughed over silly things..

Oh man, how I miss that time. So simple yet so unforgettable!

(and of course, I miss you ABC!)

Introvert Time

Since Abbey had something to do in Tokyo that time, I spent this day (it was either a Saturday or a Sunday haha) like a true introvert. Went to a nearby park by myself and enjoyed the recharging time, haha!

Soo cute! These guys brought a mini table with them and they played ~

Imagine a park in full bloom + people serenading everyone with music? Ahh, the simple joys ~
