to all you lovebirds. …a view from our window I think Tet has become my second favorite holiday after Christmas. I decorated the house a week and a half early this year, because I was so excited for the new year. Dad thinks I’m the crazy flower/fruit lady. It might just be my weird thing, but I love grocery shopping. I love to spend time picking fruits and vegetables and taking my time browsing all […]

I’ll eat you up, I love you so…

We made reservations to meet at the Backstreet Cafe for one of those sit-down dinners that we haven’t had for awhile. The patio […]

I think there’s nothing more satisfying these days than being in good company. Last night, I got a chance to catch up with friends and we had a great dinner a Aka. Than we went to the warehouse to check out Oscar’s woodblock prints and slide show of the recent La Capacidad projects from San Salvador. It was so inspiring to see all his beautiful prints and it made me miss Cathy Hunt’s printmaking classes […]
