As we were walking through a park on our anniversary, Jenni smiled when she saw another couple that was an Asian male with a Caucasian female. I noticed them too and we were reminded that we’re a mixed race couple.
Our cultural differences don’t come up often except when we gather with our extended families. I’m often the only Asian in the room with Jenni’s family and Jenni is the only Caucasian when we gather with my family. Both of us are loved and accepted—never ostracized.
And, as a bonus, we both inherited more holidays to celebrate.
Just for fun, we looked at our heritage ingredients:
- 1 cup Chinese
- 1/4 cup English
- 1/4 cup Finnish
- 1/4 cup German
- 1/4 cup mixture of Swedish, Dutch, Danish, and possibly Native American
I think the ingredients mixed quite well as our daughters are very cute.
