[FAMILY] FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL 2012-2013

PHOTOGRAPHS BY SALLY J SHIM

This happened over a month ago but I had to post about it because in many ways my blog(s) have become our family scrapbook. In keeping up with our first day of school photograph tradition I made little signs on cardstock and stuck them on to washi wrapped popsicle sticks. We were in a bit of a rush to catch the bus but I'm just happy to be able to capture a quick pose with their first day of school signs. I still cannot believe J is a fourth-grader and j is a second-grader. Time flies by way too quickly!!

[FAMILY] FUN IN THE SUN

PHOTOGRAPHS BY SALLY J SHIM

This week J taught j to boogie board. It was the perfect day for j to learn because the waves were fairly small. Seeing J put his arm around his little brother and taking care of him in the water made my heart swell. My boys have a special relationship and I am so happy they have each other. And now that j loves boogie boarding they can't wait to catch some waves together!

Other things that made me smile this week:

1. The new NEON YELLOW SCARFSHOP scarf! I keep thinking every color of the month is my favorite, but I really think this one might be.

2. Seeing Chelsea's photographs from Germany & Sweden! We've talked about our shared love of traveling and living abroad and I'm so happy that she is on this amazing adventure right now.

3. Poketo's new flagship store in LA! I've seen so many snapshots of Ted & Angie's new store and cannot wait to visit (sadly it won't be until summer of 2013). The space is amazing and filled with so many beautiful + functional goods.

[FAMILY] WALKING AROUND TOWN

PHOTOGRAPHS BY SALLY J SHIM

One of the things I love about living in Busan is being able to walk to so many places. The beach is just a few steps outside of our home, the aquarium is less than a five minute walk down the boardwalk and there are dozens of restaurants and shops on our block. Coming from the suburbs of Portland this has been such a refreshing change for our family. Although Appah has to drive to work we do a lot less driving and a lot more walking. It definitely makes me think a bit more about whether we need to make that trip to the store, especially if the weather is chilly, but we're also able to slow down and enjoy the scenery around us. There are so many little details you miss when you drive a car. I found a cute cafe a few blocks from our house on a small side street while walking to the store with the boys as well as a photography museum while I was walking home from lunch with a friend. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and are able to squeeze in a nice little walk around your neighborhood.

A few lovely links:

1. This year I won't be able to send out our yearly New Year cards since our shipment from the States has not arrived yet so I'm thinking about a Valentines/Moving card combo. I love Amanda Jane Jones' New Year card. So cute and clever!

2. There are a billion design blogs out there but I'm excited about Rena Tom's new design blog, Singular Possessive, because she has awesome taste and a keen eye for good design. And if you run a creative business or have hopes to do so in the future then I hope you're reading her Rena Tom blog because it is chalk full of wise advice.

3. I loved looking through some of the meals my friend Ashley Rodriguez of Not Without Salt prepared in 2011. Her Pork Meatball Banh Mi and her homemade Butter Finger Candy look amazing. I'm pretty sure we all wish we were her neighbor, I certainly do!
