Good evening!

Sorry for the late post. Michelle and I went to Dogo for a Christmas dinner yesterday. We had a blast! It felt so great to eat a family-style dinner; passing food down the table, talking, and enjoying each others company.

Michelle got a hair cut yesterday! For the past month we talked about her getting a haircut before the Christmas dinner, but she felt bad leaving while we were preparing food. I told her that we had it covered so she didn’t have to feel guilty, but she still didn’t want to leave.  So I asked our friend who was hosting dinner if she could secretly make a hair appointment for Michelle.  When I told Michelle she had an appointment, she was so surprised and thankful.  Michelle’s hair turned out so great; she looked so beautiful when she came back. I took this picture after I walked her over to the salon:

While we were in Dogo, we wanted to go shopping for some boots. I got tired of walking around in my tennis shoes when it’s raining or snowing. I don’t think my poor toes can handle walking around in wet socks and shoes anymore. We went to a store that sells boots and I started trying some on.  Every boot that I tried on was way too small, I even had to cram in my foot when trying on the extra large ones.  I turned to Michelle, saying that this couldn’t possibly be the only section of boots. I walked down a couple of aisles and there they were.. the mens aisle of boots. I was so embarrassed…I tried on women’s boots!

After we did some more shopping, we took the ferry back to an island closer to home. The ferry doesn’t go to Chibu so we had to wait in Ama for about an hour. We did a little grocery shopping, bought some drinks, and played on Michelle’s iPad. While we were walking to a bench, I saw this pile of glass Coke bottles. I love how the bottles are pointing in different directions.

With the recent shooting that happened in Connecticut, it reminded me that we should all enjoy the time we spend with friends and family and to always appreciate every day we have with our loved ones. So after looking at these photos, please hug someone special in your life and tell them, “I love you.” I just did 🙂

Good evening everyone!

I know what you are thinking “Khoa why are you doing another flower photo?”

Well, it’s because I love flowers and how pretty they are. Don’t you remember me saying that yesterday? If not then you should go check out what I said here.

I love how the white flowers stand out infront of the yellow ones in the picture below. These flowers are just so beautiful! Just like Michelle 🙂

Good evening everyone!

Sorry for the late post again. I’ve been feeling under the weather for the past two days.   I did take a picture today and yesterday when I went to the store. Don’t worry, I didn’t cook dinner. Michelle did and she made a wonderful pasta last night. I think I might have her make dinner more often. Maybe only on the weekend when she doesn’t have to go to work.

I love taking photos of flowers because they’re naturally beautiful. So when summer started coming to an end and the weather began to cool down, I got a little sad because a lot of flowers started to wither away and die. As fall kept chugging along and winter came creeping up, I started to see some flowers pop up, blooming nice and bright and beautiful even though it was freezing cold and windy. These are some of those flowers:

I was so happy to still be able to photograph flowers at the start of winter. I am hoping that there will still be some in bloom when it’s snowing…I doubt it, but a little part of me is still hoping.

 

When ever I can’t think of a photo or I just don’t see anything on my daily walks, I go to the shrine in Chibu. There is always something interesting there for me to take a picture of.  Take a look and what I found this time:
