Jake and Dana

This is Jake (my friend Arlyn son) and Dana. I took this photo last June 12 at Long's Family Park. It was in the Pot Luck Party (Independence Day). There are many Filipinos out there. I also met some of my Filipino friends who live in Grand Junction area. It was nice, there are tons of Filipino food, they also have cultural dance which is my friend Arlyn is one of the participants. She dance "leron leron sinta" with other fellow Pinays.

Rose bush!

We got a lot of flower on our rose bush this year. It was so pretty especially that purple flower, I don't know what's the name of that flower. I took a photo of Dustin and Dana and make the rose bush as a background. Dana's dress was so pretty too! They look cute together and they grown up so fast!

My place

Guest post from: Steve Delaney

It’s always been my dream to own a coffee shop. I don’t know why, but I loved the idea of sitting in a comfy chair chatting over java with my best friends or running a giant copper espresso machine day after day. Well, I’ve finally realized my dream and I couldn’t be happier about it! Last year I found a storefront that works for me and I quickly got to renovating it. I got furniture, purchased coffee and pastriesand even hired a couple of high schoolers to work at the front after school. I was ready to go! There was definitely a learning curve when I first started and my clients told me I had to invest in wireless so they could get work done, so I went to and got that taken care of. There was also demand for some more food products so I learned how to bake – I know, me! Once I worked out all the kinks I realized how rewarding it was going to be to live out my dream each day!
