We had a lovely party for Lunar New Year! It was a bit crazy- about 50 people when all was said & done. The food turned out great & a bonus was when a Vietnamese friend told me my Xoi Vo {sticky rice with mung bean} was delicious…& she took some home!

I wish I had taken a picture of people drinking avocado shakes. Bliss.

& our friends were so gracious! Surprising us with gifts for Little Man, handmade red envelopes, & flowers. Our house is filled!

These were certainly things not expected, but we were overwhelmed by the *love*, thoughtfulness & enthusiasm. How amazing it is to share such a happy occasion with people who were with us from the very beginning. I looked around at one point & saw friends who attended our wedding(s), who knew how much weight we were carrying, who were there during the never ending process, who seemed to simply understand how very hard it was & who were as excited as us to meet Little Man. This party was for us, but also for them!

My only wish of course…

That our peeps in the US could have been with us, too. You know we love you!

& now, to really kick the Year of the Tiger off, the illness I’ve been trying to ignore for several days is officially un-ignorable. I think it’s better but uhm, where did my voice go?
