Kodomo no hi

Today was a very special day in many ways.
Let's see...


It was Cinco de Mayo. I was craving that margarita ALL day long!

We were married at Hakone Gardens, Saratoga CA.


I made Stamper's Showcase on Stampin' Up! Thanks Steph for the head's up!

My dear friend, Anna, came drove down with her husband and dropped their daughters off with us for the night. What a wonderful treat!

Best friends for life!

The younger two were exhausted after chasing each other for hours!

Most importantly, it was Children's Day in Japan... Kodomo no hi.

Traditionally, May 5th is celebrated as Boy's Day or tango no sekku. Girl's Day or hina matsuri is celebrated on March 3rd.

Today, we celebrated the happiness and health of our children and wished them a very good future.


Monday's Fun Day!

My last Sale-A-Bration set to give away!

Lots of Thoughts:


What do you need to do to get in on this terrific set?

I'm still new to blogging and would love getting feedback on ways to improve my blog.
Since my stamp set is called "Lots of Thoughts", send me just that. Lots of thoughts on what you want to see, what you like and what you don't like. It can even be about what you love about a particular blog or don't like about another blog (please do NOT link or mention names).

For me, I still need to come up with a watermark for my pictures and a banner for my blog. I also need to figure out a way to do the pop-up comment window. Still not sure what to do about the music except perhaps keep it and hope that everyone can find the player quickly enough to pause it or mute their computer... or that the music is gentle enough for most everyone. I was scared out of my skin the other night and have been very sensitive about this every since! lol! Hoping that the slideshow doesn't bother many. Or the seemingly endless number of blogs that inspire me.

I will use a number generator or a number picker (one of my boys) and post a winner on Friday, 3pm PST.
