Autumn Dahlias

September 21 , 2012 by Hong - in Flowers

I love this time of year. There’s a crispness in the air, boots and scarves are in season, and dahlias are abundant. One of my favorite places to purchase flowers is at the Pike Place Market. Being a Seattlelite for over 30 years now, this is still one of my favorite places. The floral vendors […]

Home and Heart

September 18 , 2012 by Hong - in Home

Confession: I’m a homebody. It’s been over a year since we’ve moved into our new home and guess what? I’m still in LOVE. In the past year we’ve entertain so many friends and family and have created countless memories. Here’s our space that we love so dearly. A piece of advice: never buy a white, […]

Birthday Weekend

September 16 , 2012 by Hong - in Birthdays, Weekend

Last week was my birthday. I celebrated with friends and family and felt so very loved. Could a girl ask for anything more? My friend Sherry made me this beautiful cake. Not only was it absolutely gorgeous, it was just as delicious. Tiramisu. My fav. I had friends over for a dinner party on Saturday […]

Autumn Air

September 07 , 2012 by Hong - in Food, Weekend

The boys are now in their first full week of school and things are starting to get back to “normal.” I love this time of the year as we slowly merge blue skies with Autumn’s crisp air. During one of my walks this week, I noticed some of the leaves turning…. …and the lighting starting […]

Labor Day Weekend

September 03 , 2012 by Hong - in Family, Weekend

The unofficial end of Summer weekend has just passed. I spent a majority of the weekend laboring while the family spent all weekend sailing. I finally met up with them Monday afternoon and said my unofficial goodbye. It was a gorgeous Seattle day on Lake Union. Seeing the seaplanes taking off and landing never gets […]

Happy Weekend

August 31 , 2012 by Hong - in Weekend

The weather in Seattle has been a little schizophrenic lately. The days are now getting shorter and I find myself thinking what happened to our Summer? Hopefully it will extend through September and we’ll see more sunny days. But for now, if you find yourself on the western side of Seattle this weekend, stop here […]

DIY: Floral Place Cards

August 29 , 2012 by Hong - in DIY

Although the summer wedding season is coming to an end soon, I wanted to hang on just a tad bit longer with this DIY floral place card setting. This project is very similar to the crepe paper flowers I did several months ago. The only difference is that the place setting doesn’t require a stem. […]

Ferry to Bainbridge

August 28 , 2012 by Hong - in Family

One of the things I love about living in Seattle is the proximity of the sea to west and the mountains to the east. This past weekend, The Geek’s mom made a visit and we enjoyed a ferry ride to Bainbridge Island. This is the view from the ferry dock. The newest member of the […]

Flowers from the Herb Garden

August 24 , 2012 by Hong - in Flowers

One of my favorite things to have in the home are live flowers. Since my hydrangeas have yet to fully bloom, I went after the herb garden. The onions were starting to bloom and caught my attention. The sage also need some growth control… And I rounded up the arrangements with a few sprigs of […]

Weekend Wrap Up

August 20 , 2012 by Hong - in Weekend

I had a pretty fantastic weekend. It was my second one in a row and I’m feeling a little giddy. On Saturday night I was honored to photograph a pretty swanky but low key soiree. J + P were the perfect couple, er I meant pair! How cute is that?! Did I mention their venue […]
