Time out in St. Petersburg, Florida

Well, I guess it's official.  I've lost my words.  I can't, for the life of me, write a blog post.  My mind is constantly going, but I can't seem to organize any thoughts.  Meanwhile, over a year's worth of photos sit on my computer taunting me.  So I'm just going to start posting them without the words to give them context.  It makes me sad, but so much has changed in the past six months, that I guess it's no wonder.  I'm also not going to worry about going in chronological order.  Gasp.  But sometimes, forward momentum, even at the slowest pace, is what's needed.

Vajdahunyad Castle in Budapest

Everyday I want to blog and every day I don't have the words.  I'm sure they will come back to me.  In the mean time, I'll just post photographs.  These are from our visit to Budapest, Hungary.  On our last day before heading to the airport, we took the tube to the City Park to visit the Vajdahunyad Castle.  In 1896, the castle was constructed for the 1,000th birthday of the Hungarian State.  It was a temporary structure for the Millennial Exhibition.  The castle was built to showcase the history of Hungary through its architecture.  The people loved it so much that it was eventually rebuilt to be a permanent structure and now houses a Museum of Architecture.

I think most travel bloggers have a folder of photos to use in those random posts when you're not sharing a place but maybe something else.  Something that doesn't lend itself to the perfect photograph.  These gorgeous peonies came from that folder of random photos.  Because how do you photograph the end of a marriage?  That's probably way too blunt, but I just need to write this post. I need to put it out there so that I can move on with this blog.  And with life.
