year of the dragon.

happy chinese new year!!!
i attended a lovely chinese new year party on saturday.
of course, i wore red. not only was it requested. but it's good luck!
{no brainer: red lipstick too.}
i ate one too many fortune cookies. 
chinese tradition: tying your wish for the new year on a cherry blossom branch. 
{lots of pressure to come up with just one perfect wish, i tell you.}
i enjoyed the festive decorations and the company of the lovely guests.
opened a fortune cookie with quite the fortune. see for your self. {above}
i had a splendid time celebrating another culture.
i wish lovebird could have joined me.
{but i'm thankful for a happy-hard-working husband}
it was a wonderful party.
what a great way to ring in the new year... twice! 


  1. i've never celebrated chinese new looks so fun! i might have to plan something next year. love your red lips!
