My new love

Let me introduce to you all my new love: a miniature orchid Jenn gave me for our holiday gift exchange. How precious is it??? LOVE. My orchid count is now up to 6. Yep, I'm an orchid girl.

It's a snow weekend here in DC area. Snow, snow, and more snow.

I'm so glad I went to the grocery store last night to get the food. But the salsa event has been canceled for tonight, and I'm not sure if this weather will prevent me tomorrow from meeting up with Radha and Jenn for dinner and a gift exchange...that would be oh so sad!

Earrings for me, Anna and Jenny

A while ago Jenny came to DC for a business meeting, and I went shopping with her to help her find a few accessories for an upcoming wedding. She chose beautiful chandelier earrings that I've been meaning to replicate for a while.

Then after our trip to Puerto Rico to visit Laura, Jenny lost her earrings! Oh no!

Below are acquamarine-colored earrings I made for myself, and topaz-colored earrings I made for Jenny and Anna. I'm in LOVE with how they turned out.

Why I love orchids

How can you not love these gorgeous flowers? Orchids are my favorite flowers. Here's one that's blooming for probably a 5th time: I've had it for years.

Gorgeous! Don't you agree?
