Greek Festival 2010 -Tarra & Bella Elephant/Dog BFF & GIVE AWAY # 2

Each year our family tries our best to make it to the Greek Festival at the Castro Valley Resurrection Greek Church.  This year, Kate and I gathered our family via text and we all met up for great food, family, dancingand did I say great food?
Oh yeah, did I mention that I'm Greek?  Well TAA DAAA!
I am very proud of my culture, and my Big Fat Greek Family!
I would love it if my whole family could get together at least once a month like we did this weekend.
We all get so wrapped up in our own little families, work and time off, that we forget that in the end what really matters is the time we spend with all our families conjoined. 
Kate and I have vowed to make this happen more.

I saw this on Oprah today and it totally melted my heart!  I love animal companionship stories like this. 
Stay tuned tomorrow for complete details on V's Second Giveaway!
