Two Trails, One Road



The smell of bacon tickled my palate, lifting me out of my sleep a little earlier than usual this morning. Last night's slumber party was just a ruse to throw us off the scent--it was really all about Operation Bed'n Breakfast. Half the neighborhood slept here--floors, couches, chairs--anywhere they could find a place. At least 10 teen-aged creatures got up at 4:30 am to fix Mom and me breakfast in bed. We even found a couple of undocumented workers helping with the morning chores.






Nineteen years ago, a Khmer Princess, fresh from the horrors of Cambodia's Killing Fields, married a spoiled, small town hayseed, fresh from his Mormon Mission. Two perpendicular trails merged into one parallel road. I love you, Sweetheart. Happy Anniversary!

Happy Anniversary, you guys. I wish you many happy memories in the years to come. Chantra, we are so glad to have you in our family. You have taught us a lot.

What I like most about having you in the family is the food. Eggrolls, yummy. Shredded carrots, yummy. Fried rice, yummy. . . .

Jasmine rice, yummy. Seasoning sauce, yummy (much better than Kikoman soy sauce or the like)...

Happy Anniversary, Paul and Chantra! That's nice y'all got breakfast in bed. I hope the rest of the day is just as nice or even nicer! :-)

Happy anniversary!!!!

They really were just having a sleep over to fool you so they could wake up and make you breakfast in bed? Nice!

Love the statue. It fits you guys perfectly.

I love Chantra's food AND her style. She always looks beautiful.
We are all lucky to have her in the family.

Congratulations! I am sorry I am just getting around to this! I have been a bad blog blurker lately and haven't been leaving comments like I should. I didn't forget it (how could I, we share the same anniversary)! Love you guys and I am so happy that you two have each other. If I make it to Utah next month, I hope to have some of that yummy food you both make, it IS THE BEST!
