Sunday Goals: 2020

Happy New Year again everyone! As we begin the first full week of the new year/decade, I am looking at lessons and triumphs of the past decade and seeing how I can have a full filling 2020s. I currently use a Day Designer journal, while helps me plan my day and keep track of how…

Tuesday Thoughts: 2019 Recap

Happy New Year everyone! I wish everyone a wonderful 2020 and beyond. This year has definitely been a roller coaster of emotions. It started off with excitement and nervousness. Moving back to LA was a dream come true. I knew the move would be hard on my husband, but I never imagined the toll it…

Monday Loves – Christmas Traditions

Merry Christmas Eve Eve! I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season and last few moments of the 2010s! Christmas is my favorite holiday because I love the traditions that go along with this season and the anticipation for Christmas Day.

Tuesday Thoughts: Life Update

Life is definitely a roller coaster. It’s been about six weeks since I posted and there have both positive and negative events that have dominated my life. Let’s start with the positive though! My condo closed and the hubs and I are moved in and enjoying our “resort” lifestyle. The move went pretty well and…

Monday Loves – Dining Chairs

I haven’t been able to post this week, since my husband and I have some citing news! We bought a condo! It’s really exciting to start this next chapter in the LA area! In between the loan and insurance decisions, there has not been much time to write. One thing I have been looking forward…

Monday Loves – Favorite Teas

Until I started dating my husband, I was not a big tea drinker. My mother would always drink tea and of course going to dim sum restaurants constantly, tea was abundant.

Sunday Thoughts – Celebrating a great week This past week was really good. I generally downplay my successes and happiness as not to sound pompous or egotistical. This mentality comes from not only my heritage, but I also my childhood experiences. I had a great childhood, but I was definitely not the popular kid in…

Bucket List Items Worth the Hype – International

My family has always been big into traveling. I went on my first international trip when I was 2 (went to Canada to visit family). We had our annual summer vacation for 1-2 weeks. I have carried on that tradition in my married life so far, except for it being in the summer. I have…

Self-Care Saturday: Finding Creativity

On this Self-Care Saturday, I am working on fueling my creativity. I had never seen myself as a creative person, but am starting to believe that everyone (more specifically myself) has a creative side. I don’t express it though due to personal fears or lack of exposure. Being creative does not necessarily mean being artistically…
