This was a really hard post to write. I was first of all worried about the reaction of most people who would read my thoughts and stories here, and I have a tendency to not want to rock the boat... this post is all about rocking the boat. But that... Continue reading

Today, we decided to go on an adventure. We just moved to the Los Angeles region and haven't explored everything it holds yet, so we've been going to new neighborhoods every week-end. Little Tokyo was our goal this time and I'd say we had an amazing day there. We got... Continue reading
