New Friendship

I'm such a bad blogger. Last week, Shawn and I had the pleasure of meeting a Western blogger who was in town. We made our way to where Kristine was staying and had a wonderful evening with her!

We talked and talked and talked, laughed, shared our adoption stories and had a great time. I don't have my camera right now, I will try to remember to take a picture and post it but Kristine brought us some "happiness" from her local China town. Beautiful lacquered chopsticks, a necklace with a dragon on one side and the word Happiness on the other and a little Chinese brocade purse. I loved the story behind the purse. Kristine's grandmother always said, a lady should always have a quarter to call a cab, five dollars to pay the cab and a purse to carry everything in. I think that's great advice!

Kristine, thank you so much for such a wonderful evening! Next time we hope we're able to meet Shawn as well. If there's one good thing about this wait, is being able to meet amazing people like you.

Sigh. I wish I had the time (or the energy!) to come to where you are right now. It's just sooo busy! You're not coming up north any time soon, are ya? :-)
