Happy New Year!

While growing up, Tet (the Vietnamese New Year) was a big deal in our home. It was the most celebrated and fun holiday. I remember we would meticulously clean the house spotless to welcome the new year. Last year, I didn’t get a chance to go home and gorge on new year’s treats (image one.) Tomorrow, however, Cliff and I are going to visit my family, including some extended ones, and we will be giving out lucky money. That was always my favorite part, receiving lucky money in cute red envelopes (image two.) This year I’ve prepared some envelopes for my nieces and nephews, paying it forward. I am also excited for the year of the horse, which is Cliff’s animal sign.

Hope your weekend is filled with happy cheer too!
