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.
