Hello 2014!

Lake Tahoe

Although a day into 2014, it is still early enough to say Hello 2014!

We were out with friends over New Years in a not-so-little cabin overlooking Lake Tahoe. New friends, old friends, lots of home cooked goodness, copious amount of wine and scotch; not to mention craziness that happens when kids are asleep and adults tipsy!


We spent the first day of 2014 driving along the beautiful sunny shores of Lake Tahoe and then with a late lunch-early dinner at an Indian restaurant in the middle of nowhere.

Friends and laughter, food and travels – always the best way to start a new year!

While I don’t make any resolutions ( or have stopped making them since I never stick to them), this year,  I plan to reduce my IOU’s.

I owe a lot of posts ( travels to Hawaii, Europe, Asia and around Seattle; desserts and quick dinners; not to mention California relocation). Many friends have asked for them and I have always put them off for various reasons.

But I promise, before we move into our apartment and before the baby arrives and more craziness takes over, I will whittle down the IOU’s.

Here is a sneak peek in pictures:

Some are from recent past, others from summers ago when we didn’t have kids. Hopefully I will be able to do justice to all.

Hang on and join us as we share new and some old adventures!

Happy 2014!
