World's Scariest Bridges

Darlings,
I have a confession to make... me and heights are not friends. So when I recently came across this list and realized that I really wanted to go to some of them, I was pretty astonished. Now tell me, would you add any of these places to your "must-visit" list?
Aiguille du Midi Bridge, France (Getting there requires taking a cable car that climbs 9,200 vertical feet in just 20 minutes):
Royal Gorge Bridge, Colorado (America’s highest suspension bridge- nearly 90 stories above the Arkansas River):
Trift Suspension Bridge (One of the Alps’ longest and highest pedestrian suspension bridges):
 

Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, Northern Ireland (Many visitors who walk across simply can't handle the return and have to go by boat):

Capilano Suspension Bridge, Canada (450 feet long; 230 feet high):

Chesapeake Bay Bridge, Maryland (Subjected to frequent—and often violent—storms):

Hussaini Hanging Bridge, Pakistan (Massive gaps between the planks and a wild side-to-side swing... oh how fun):

Sidu River Bridge, China (Rises more than 1,500 feet in the air):
Seven Mile Bridge, Florida (Its position in Florida Keys makes it a prime target for the region’s many hurricanes):

U Pain Bridge, Myanmar (No handrails and built more than 200 years ago):

Deception Pass Bridge, Washington (VERY narrow pedestrian lane):

Iya Valley Vine Bridges, Japan (The originals were built with slats of wood placed between 7 and 12 inches apart, secured in place with two single vines):

Captain William Moore Bridge, Alaska (It crosses an active earthquake fault):

Cikurutug Bridge, Indonesia (The train slid off its tracks in 2002):

Canopy Walk, Ghana (you’re 100 feet off the forest floor):



Lake Pontchartrain Causeway, Louisiana (I have been on this one, and it really does feel like 24 miles of never ending bridge):

Millau Viaduct, France (Taller than the Eiffel Tower):

Wedding Wednesday

Darlings,
I might not be much of a country girl, but these pictures made me wish I was. How stunningly colorful and beautiful is this blushing bride's wedding?

A Reason To Celebrate

Darlings,
I have found a pretty good reason to celebrate with you: We have now reached 100 followers!  Very soon a pretty marvelous giveaway will be featured here to commemorate this wonderful event (well, as soon as these exams, researches, and labs die down a bit). I love you dolls!

Happy Birthday "Chiquita"!

Darlings, 
Yesterday I told you about this special guy's birthday, and today happens to be my lovely sister's birthday! Isn't it exciting? Two very special birthdays, one after the other. 
"Chiquita,
I hope today, as well as this new year before you, 
is absolutely marvelous and full of wonderful 
memories and experiences.
I pray that God blesses you in every way possible 
and I can't wait to see what the future has on hold for you, 
just imagine the amazing new picture that are awaiting to 
be taken. I promise you that when we go home we'll
do something "super-duper" exciting since we won't 
have to worry about exams, researches, and projects (woohoo!).
I love you tons and tons... 
your big sister."

Happy Birthday Love!

Baby,
I feel so blessed to have spent two new years of your life by your side and I pray that God gives you a hundred more to celebrate together. I hope this new year brings you countless of wonderful new memories and experiences and just know that even though I'm not able to be with you today, you'll still be in my thoughts each and every minute of it.  I absolutely cannot wait for our Skype date tonight... I love you, darling.
