Year of the Monkey

When it is 70 degrees and sunny in February, there is no choice but to spend all your time outside! Saturday was one of those perfect ‘winter’ days that makes me so happy to be home. It also happened to be the Chinese New Year festival at the Crow Collection of Asian Art downtown.

We had to take a little snack break and stopped at Savor; a seat on the patio was a must for people watching!
