Cherry Blossom Festival

Every year there’s a few different Cherry Blossom Festivals all over the United States. I went to the one in Monterey Park and although there weren’t any more cherry blossoms currently in bloom, I actually ended up having so much fun more than I thought. There’s live entertainment, arts and crafts section, food booths and crafts vendors. For this event, I decided to bring Coco and make a kimono for her and me. My friends and I got a taste of the Japanese and Japanese American culture through a first-hand experience of watching traditional Japanese dancing, hearing the resounding beats of the taiko drums, observing the mastery of martial arts and learned how to make flower arrangements.

What’d you think of Coco’s kimono? If you have other suggestions that you’d like to see her in, let me know. Happy Friday and Happy Earth Day!!

XO,

Joy
