Year of the Dragon

January 22 , 2012 by: Hong Holiday, Inspiration

Happy Lunar New Year! This is the year of the Dragon. It symbolizes royalty, fortune, and power. And since I have neither of these I am confident this will be a great year, as I was born a dragon.

This is one of my favorite Holidays as it presents an opportunity for my children to gain perspective on their cultural background. I will be honest though, so far the only thing they associate with during this time of the year are the tiny little red envelopes that represent good luck and filled with a monetary gift. The other reason I love this Holiday is the gathering of family and food, two priorities in my life with neither one superseding the other. The thought that you can start anew and receive a clean slate each year is pretty refreshing. Although I haven’t always believed in all of the cultural traditions I’ve been raised with, I think this year will be different. Who doesn’t want royalty, fortune or power?

  • Happy ❤️.
  • You learned to tie your shoes with only one hand. You learned to walk with only one leg. You learned to grow when your spine was fused. You learned to spread your wings when you were told you would be limited. And through all this I had to sit back and watch you, wanting to catch you. You taught me so much more than I taught you. And I’ll always continue to walk in your shadow as your support. Happy Birthday my baby boy. I am so proud of you. ❤️
  • Never underestimate the power of nature, conversation, laughter, and friendship. This weekend was the equivalent of 5 years of therapy.

  • Baked macaroni and cheese is a classic and it's even better with that crispy cheese crust right from the oven. #bakedmacaroniandcheese #macaroniandcheesebaked #macandcheese #bakedmacandcheese
