For me, tacos are a way of life since we live in a Seattle neighborhood with a large Mexican population and three taco trucks within walking distance (not even mentioning the restaurants!).

    You really mean it when you say oasis!
    What an amazing parasol. It wouldn’t survive the winds here, which is why we gave up on parasols and built a pergola. Two, even.
