Weekend Getaway: SF and Beyond

August 13 , 2012 by Hong - in Weekend

I recently had the opportunity to spend a week in San Francisco with some amazing people. My day gig has an annual conference in San Francisco and I kid you not, this event is anything but. I’ve never been surrounded by so many creative, energized and focused individuals in one room. I’m still smiling and […]

It’s been about three weeks since the girls have started laying. They are finally on a regular cycle and we’ve been averaging at least three eggs a day, sometimes four if we’re lucky. Every time I lift open that nesting box it kind of feels like Christmas morning. I instantly smile…oh bliss! There’s something truly […]

Backyard Chicken Update

July 16 , 2012 by Hong - in Favorites, Home

It’s been awhile since I’ve last posted about our girls. We’ve since named them Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Dessert. (I was out voted) Several weeks ago, we woke up to the sound of crowing and realized that our girls actually included a rooster. Needless to say we had to find a new home as I […]

Summer has finally arrived in Seattle! Yay! Nothing makes me happier than the abundance of fruits available this time of the year. One of my favorites is tomato, and yes it is a fruit. It’s funny though, I’ve only become a tomato lover in my 30’s. I think as soon as I turned 30, I […]

We spent last weekend on the Hood Canal celebrating Independence Day. I was able to take a much needed extra long weekend vacation and nothing felt better than being able to enjoy the beach. There’s a quote that I love: “The cure for anything is salt water – sweat, tears, or the sea.” This was […]

DIY: Jar Lanterns

June 15 , 2012 by Hong - in DIY

Ever wonder what to do with all those empty glass jars? You know, the ones from spaghetti sauce, jam, and peanut butter. The Geek is getting a little tired of me using them as drinking ware and perhaps even a little embarrassed, especially when we’re entertaining. I on the other hand think they’re cute. I’m […]

Happy Monday

June 11 , 2012 by Hong - in Family, Flowers, Weekend

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? I had a great ending to my weekend as my entire family decided to come over for dinner Sunday night to include me in on my baby sister’s birthday. Nothing like working under pressure to deliver a decent dinner party in less than two hours! It turned out fantastic! […]

Happy Friday

June 08 , 2012 by Hong - in Flowers, Weekend

I’m still on a Peony kick. The ones in my garden are now blooming and it makes me long for the days of Summer. The Geek and The Boys are heading to the Hood Canal again this weekend with my family for my sister’s birthday. Sad that I won’t be joining them as I’ll be […]

I Thee Wed

June 07 , 2012 by Hong - in Flowers, Weddings

I had some horrible car karma this week. While The Geek was tending to my TWO flat tires, I took the opportunity to spend the morning at the Pike Place Market. I knew it was Peony season but I had no idea it was PEONY SEASON! They were absolutely gorgeous! As a matter of fact, […]

We spent this past weekend on Hood Canal at Thorndyke Manor with my sister and brother in law. It was great to spend time with them as they will be moving to Bristol in less than a month. Boo.(photo courtesy of The Geek) One of our favorite past times is clam digging and there is […]
