I forgot how much I love (Asian only) food court dining like this one at the Korean Galleria Market in Northridge.  It's not what you think when you hear "mall food court":

Imagine Abalone porridge...rich, decadent, comfort food in a bowl:

Six childhood girlfriends and one best ever hazelnut latte along side a honey butter bread drizzled with caramel sauce, cinnamon sprinkles, and a dollop of fresh cream at Tom N Toms coffee.  Only women could appreciate this mega toast:

Often, it's the smallest moments that matter most.  Like finding the time to be together, doing the most ordinary everyday things.  I read that in the Ikea catalog:

Reseda Park

A gorgeous day on the Manhattan Beach pier:

We walked through downtown and stumbled upon the *cream'wich* at The Manhattan Beach Creamery:

But of course, we had to try these irresistible ice cream sandwiches.  This is Portia's "it's cold" face:

Happy lucky and good fortune weekend!
