i noticed the pacific asia museum was holding a large family festival yesterday in celebration of the lunar new year - and best of all it was free. i bundled the baby into the stroller and headed down to check it out. much of the festival was winding down by the time we got there, but it was still fun to wander around and check out the merriment.

i've been waiting for a long time to make a trip to the coffee gallery's backstage music venue. a free open mic night, and an invite from my friend dave cho gave me the chance i was looking for.
the line-up of local talent was awesome, and the venue was just as enjoyable as i imagined it might be. i don't think i will be waiting so long to get back.

on of the first things that appealed to me about attending fuller theological seminary was the beautiful tree-lined walkway through the middle of campus. palm trees, green grass, strolling faculty and students... it seemed almost perfect.
and although i don't often pause to think about it, fuller has been a pretty amazing place to be. the end is now appearing on the horizon - who knows where life will take us next?

i will admit i knew nothing about this place for several months after moving to pasadena - even though san francisco theological seminary is located right next door to fuller's campus. this location is an extension campus to the main sfts campus in... you guessed it, san francisco.
this school awards graduate degrees in theology and caters primarily to people who want to take classes on nights and weekends.

the counter is a chain of build-your-own burger restaurants here in the los angeles area. pasadena's location is one of the newest, and it is consistently busy with people waiting to go in. they do some cool things like serving fried onion and dill pickles, and having a decent selection of craft beer to put with your burger.
i appreciate the ability to choose exactly what you want on your burger, but it took me a long time to sort through the massive list of toppings. i found myself wondering if i had made the right choice, even after my burger arrived. still, it is worth checking out if you haven't been.

i've never been to this brazilian barbecue restaurant in the paseo colorado shopping center, but i hear it isn't for the faint of heart - plenty of roasted meats, and all you can eat quantities.
don't look now, but today is 1 - 11 - 11. fun stuff!

on a more serious note, please consider raising your voice to condone actions about to take place in the area known as the arcadia oak woodland. 100-year old oaks are scheduled to be demolished starting tomorrow for the creation of a dirt storage pile by the county of LA.

here is one final rose parade float for your viewing pleasure. i missed getting a photo of the pacman float - one of my favorites - but i like this hollywood inspired design. i hope you've enjoyed my brief review.

old news now, but saturday gave us the annual rose bowl game bringing the university of wisconsin its second loss of the year and texas christian university remained undefeated. one of my favorite parts of the annual rose parade are the school-themed floats and the marching bands.

as pasadena's biggest celebration of the year comes to a close, the streets are filled with trash, and the clean up is about to begin. i'll post a few photos of the parade over the next few days, but in the meantime, you can check out a few perspectives from some local bloggers (i'll post more as they arrive).

while looking back through 2010, the birth of my daughter stands alone as the moment that means the most to me. this photo was taken the morning after her birth. she is being held by her amazing mother, and a rainbow appears in the sky. this photo never appeared on the blog, but i think it is a fitting choice for today's theme.
this may not be my most perfectly composed shot, nor my most artistic, but it is certainly my photo of the year.
happy new year!
