I did go out for a long walk this morning, up and down the hills in my neighborhood, but forgot to bring my camera. And oh, how it feels so good to walk again, especially with the sun on your face and some fallen cherry blossoms strewn along your pathway. There's something sacred about early morning walks, one that inspires creative thoughts, and today was indeed a blessing.

So in lieu of photos from my walk, I thought I should share these photo booth pictures from last night. My aunt Carmen and I were in Japantown and I couldn't resist taking her to the sparkly photo booths at Pika Pika. She was hesitant to pose at first but eventually got into it and we had a blast.
And um, notice how we wore different coats in the pictures? Well I sort of forced my aunt to swap coats with me in the middle of the process because I love her ruffled plaid coat so much. Trying to beat the timeline while putting coats on and posing at the same time took some serious skills, but definitely the highlight of the experience. My aunt was so excited she wanted to go back again, haha.
Here is a glimpse of Japantown in the late afternoon sun. And yes, I really like this part of city a lot.
