I almost can’t believe it, but this is my 100th post on this blog! When I started this project back in October of 2012, I had no idea what would come of this, how to use wordpress, or anything about blogging.

After a busy but wonderful early January, we finally found ourselves with a free Saturday. As we pondered how to spend it, I discovered that it was a free museum day at the LACMA. I was super thrilled because I really wanted to go back when the Tim Burton exhibit was in town and pretty much ever since, but I’ve never made it.

I had to work on New Year’s Eve, so we had a chill night in and just went out for pho. It was delicious as always. I love our little pho shop.
