Yesterday marked the four year anniversary of JCB! Since my first tentative steps into blogging, I have literally dragged my readers around the world. I have met amazing new friends, seen new places. I have fallen in love and gotten married. All in all, it has been an amazing adventure. Thank you all for following along.
This past weekend, the gentleman and I stopped for lunch with a friend at Eden Center, a Vietnamese enclave in Arlington full of restaurants, grocery stores, nail salons, and coffee shops. The last day of the lunar new year celebration, workers were sweeping up spent firecrackers, and the restaurants were packed with revelers. Guided by our friend, we feasted on Vietnamese crepes, papaya salad, shrimp chips, roasted pork and noodles. On our way back to the car, we spotted the first, tentative, pink blossoms. A little sign of spring, and a fresh reminder of things to come.
Expected next month:
* Founding Gardeners, by Andrea Wulf (the author of The Brother Gardeners)
* and The Paper Garden, by Molly Peacock (I have linked it before, but it bears mentioning again)
I am off on another little adventure. Take care, be well.
See you in a week.
