Happy Thanksgiving!

to all that celebrates it. =) We are going to host a smaller party this year. Since a few of our friends that usually attend our dinner are traveling, we decided to keep it simple and not cook a traditional turkey meal this year. We are going to have a Chinese style hot pot dinner! YAY! It's the kind that uses a split pot. Each side of the pot contents a different flavor of soup base. I'll remember to take a photo and share it with you! =)


I am thankful for my sweet husband and our two cat children. They are the sources of my happiness.


I am thankful that even though my families are far away (in Taiwan), they are all safe and healthy.


I am thankful for this hobby that helped me met so many sweet, kind and talented people. I am thankful for all of you that tirelessly visit me and leave me sweet comments. Thank you all for being here and for being so encouraging. I am so thankful for all your precious friendship. =)



Happy Thanksgiving, my friends!
