Songs of Winter - Solano Community College, Fairfield, Calif.

Christmas is my favorite holiday. Why? I can say that I really like giving and getting presents (which I suppose is an obvious answer), but I really just love the warm and happy feelings that arise when the holiday season comes around. It's all about Christmas cheer!

2013 Koinonia Cup - St. Patrick-St. Vincent High School, Vallejo, Calif.

It was an uncharacteristically hot Saturday morning in September this past weekend. But, despite the searing sun and the early hours of the day, the St. Patrick-St. Vincent High School campus in Vallejo, Calif. (my alma mater!) teemed with young adults wearing brightly colored shirts and waving homemade banners to kick-off the 2013 Koinonia Cup.

Maleah and Simonah's Birthday pARTy - Terra Linda Recreation Center, San Rafael, Calif.

Maleah and Simonah's Birthday pARTy - Terra Linda Recreation Center, San Rafael, Calif.

My nieces Simonah and Maleah celebrated their 7th and 5th birthdays today — and it was art-themed (extremely fitting for two little girls whose parents are quite artistic themselves). 

The party, which took place at a small recreation center in San Rafael, California, had all the fixins': a bounce house, pizza, "creative juice," and tables covered with enough art supplies to put Michael's out of business.
