I usually don't do a lot of purple; I'm not sure exactly why. I think purple is a perfectly fine color, I just don't find myself using it all that much. But I got some new inks in my stocking for Christmas, and this lavender was too pretty to ignore. The stamp itself was actually a fluke; I had ordered a cute little owl set, but when our Christmas package arrived this set was in there instead. It wouldn't be worth the hassle of trying to exchange it now, and I actually kind of like the different trees. My favorite has to be this one, with its little birdies hidden among the leaves.
Tonight Seth and I are going to brave the cold and head out to one of our favorite neighborhood restaurants for dinner. Some eggplant with ground pork, maybe a little shredded potato with green pepper, steamed white rice... I'm getting hungry just thinking about it! One thing we can never complain about is the food here, that's for sure!
