finally! a home cooked meal!

The holidays, I love them, but it's such a busy time! We have been eating out all week, so yummy but eventually I crave for a home cooked meal...

Tonight, Hec made homemade black bean burgers, topped with cheddar cheese, spinach and chunky salsa, a side of tater tots, and a beer to wash it all down! It was so good! We are not the best of cooks, but have enjoyed learning with each other, and I have to say we are getting better!!!

I just want to take the time out to congratulate my husband, for finishing his 2nd semester of college. I know that it seems as if it will be a long road to the end, but there is an end, and we are here cheering you on!!!

Last Christmas..

Today, I was thinking back to last christmas, Husband and I had only been married for about a month. It seems like a year went by so quickly, and many great experiences were shared.

Last year, I couldn't help getting a bit teary-eyed when we exchanged gifts. I gave him a book of poems by Pablo Neruda. He gave me a mirror with day of the dead images around the borders. When I turned the mirror around, I found a poem attached to the back of it:

Here I love you
in the dark pines the wind disentangles itself
the moon glows like phosphorus on the vagrant waters
Days, all one kind, go chasing each other

The moon turns its clock work dream.

The biggest stars look at me with your eyes,
And as I love you, the pines in the wind
want to sing your name with their leaves of wire.

::::::excerpts from "Here I Love You" by Pablo Neruda

New Hobby

My Father is a tailor, and my sister has always shown an interest in it, I however never did. I leaned more towards photography, as the process of developing brought on a sense of patience in me, that I do not possess naturally.

Earlier this year, a friend and I took a class at Sew Crafty. I couldn't resist going, the way the place is decorated is just too cute to pass up!! I found that sewing also had the same effect as photography. In this current world of instant gratification, I find that indulging in the process of "making" is very satisfying. Check out cool sewing classes at:

These next projects were not a creation of my own, when I find the links for the tutorial on the dress, and piggy purse pattern , I will post = )

Piggy coin purse, patterned enlarged, and we added straps...

T-shirt dress, made from hubby's old Frida shirt and black t-shirt, Luna loves it!!
