Every year, we head down to my cousin’s house in San Antonio to celebrate Lunar New Year with good food, games, and the handing out of the red envelopes to the unmarried relatives. It’s so much fun when all the kids line up to receive their loot! This year, there were about 29 unmarried at the party, ranging from a newborn up to some in their mid-20s (I’m guessing).

And for the past couple years, my cousin has been bringing over some different whiskeys for us to taste. This year we had some cognac, which is new! It was delicious. 😄
