|Handmade origami earrings|
This is the first year that I attended the festival and it was a ton of fun. Other than the interesting live performances and the yummy food, what really amazed me were all the crafts being sold - the craftsmanship and the details were absolutely stunning!
We bought this Yukata (casual summer kimono) for Kaitlyn (my 7-month-old baby) and I can't wait to put it on her. Isn't it cute?! This was hand made by a young and talented local designer, you can check out her Facebook Page if you are interested.
To keep the Japanese theme going, hubby took me to Takifugu for Japanese dinner. I really appreciate their unique menu and the freshness of the food. It was surprising affordable too, considering the quality of the food and the service. We wrapped up the night with some cheesecake and that's the end of my fun filled weekend.
