Hot Pot with Yuki and Friends

Hot Pot with Yuki and Friends

Last week I had the best time with friends, their dogs and my first experience having Hot Pot.   According to Wikipedia, Hot Pot  refers to several East Asian varieties of stew, consisting of a simmering metal pot of stock at the center of the dining table.   To me, it was a very good way to share in the enjoyment of cooking with family and the people you find dear to you.

This was also a house warming celebration for a dear friend and his beautiful bride.   So, thanks guys for the beautiful day and the opportunity to share the excitement!

I was able to snap a few shots of the preparation, food and 3 hyper-waggling tailed pups named Si-Si, Yuki and Mickey Chen who is 13 year old dapper little Chihuahua!  Check em’ out!

 

Easter Sunday in the Garden

Easter Sunday in the Garden

Hello! This year we celebrated Easter a little less than traditional by having it in a quaint little garden. What a beautiful day it was for family, food and an Easter egg hunt! Easter is one of my favorite holidays simply because all of the gorgeous colors that come out in the Spring time. Colorful eggs, sprouting plans and giggles from the kids really made this holiday! I Couldn’t wait to share all the great photos I took so here they are…

The Entranced Fairy & Her Night Time Garden

The Entranced Fairy & Her Night Time Garden

Recently, I visited the beautiful and well known Laguna Beach and couldn’t help but to snap a few shots as I strolled through. I haven’t yet mastered taking pictures at night so I figured this would be a great opportunity.

So, I stumbled upon this teeny tiny garden. Oh, it was so thrilling and spooky at the same time as I walked through this enchanted little place hoping not to disturb any creatures along the way. Although I’m not an expert on plant life I’m pretty sure I came across Wisteria (un bloomed), green adventurine rock, different types of garden herbs, and other really pretty plant foliage.

Ok, lets take the tour around this charmed little garden…

A little creepy, huh? Just in time for Halloween!

Thanks for coming along…
