Back, with much to share

I am back from visiting with family
overseas; 
Mr. Husband, my parents and I all spent a week
together in Holland.
Mr. Husband and I stayed on and went to Maastricht
(in South Holland)
 and then Luxembourg.

Here's a few pictures.  
I am posting this in advance.
I have a district feeling that I will need some time to rest when we return,
so if I do not do lots of blogging or blog commenting,
please do not worry, I am merely resting to reenter things again more fully.
I hope to be given time share a lot more about our trip! 
Meanwhile...
Here are some highlights: 

In Dokkum with Mr Husband's Cousin, Mr Husband and my parents.  St. Boniface is strongly remembered here.

Very old church in Winsum, a village in Northern Holland 
Mr Husband was esp. impressed by this 10 foot long Lotus flower....
We went to liturgy in Amsterdam and saw this very
beautiful icon of St. Boniface!  
Mr. Husband took me to 2 quilt shops in Amsterdam!

We spent an afternoon - early morning at a lovely monastery in Holland.

We visited St. Servaas who is a very early Saint in Holland, over 1500 years.

We had a very lovely beautiful breakfast in Maastricht 

Saw a very lovely small Orthodox Church in Maastricht.
Saw St. Willibrord in Echternach, Luxembourg 
Had a very lovely afternoon cup of tea and rose petal ice cream at a fancy Parisian tea place near our hotel.
Mr. Husband went with me!
This means that Mr. Husband's hero status is increasing :)

That's a beautiful icon of St. Boniface. The place in Maastricht and tea cafe near your hotel both look so cozy and charming.

A lovely time for you! There's so much charm in European architecture, isn't there?
