Hello Spring Cake

March 20 , 2013 by Hong - in DIY, Food, Inspiration

The first day of Spring here in Seattle was presented with gusty winds, rain, sleet and sunshine. Oh Hello Spring in Seattle! However, Spring’s arrival made me smile and so I decided to honor its presence with a pink ombre cake. Doesn’t that scream Hello Spring! Start with your favorite cake. Make sure to lay […]

Bonjour Paris: Part Un

March 12 , 2013 by Hong - in Places

Our Parisian Holiday began with a short one hour flight from Bristol. It amazes me how inexpensive it is to travel within Europe. It makes me want to be a squatter in my sister’s home for a year. Since we didn’t arrive in Paris til later in the evening our first priority was to check […]

Practical Paris

I don’t know about you, but when it comes to packing for any excursion, I’m terrible. I either over pack or under pack and inevitable forget something. For Paris, I went on the conservative route. I wanted to pack lightly so that I can bring back lots of chocolate…er souvenirs! Here’s a snap shot of […]

Bristol Cheers

The first leg of my Whirlwind Holiday was spent at my sisters home in Bristol. Actually she lives in this cute little town called Chew Magna. It’s mainly farmland and is so quaint and lovely. She has a charming farmhouse with a contemporary interior, the perfect combination. This is the view from her front door. […]

Perfection: the sate or quality of being or becoming perfect. I’ve been having a tough time with this word lately. During this past Holiday, I had a conversation with my sister about this blog, specifically whether or not I was going to continue with it. She said something that I took as a back handed […]

Hello 2013

January 03 , 2013 by Hong - in Holiday, Inspiration

Hello 2013! This will be my motto for you: Live simply, Expect little, Give much, Love extravagantly. Happy New Year!

2012 started with a winter snow storm in Seattle. February brought new chicks into our home. I had the privilege of capturing wee one photos with their lovely mommas. Celebrations with friends and family was abundant. Spring allowed for  a much needed girls weekend trip to Colorado. Some well rested weekends were quintessential. The Girls […]
