Last week, I went on a business trip to South Korea. It was a short trip but a special one because my mom was able to join me and take Adri’s place. Anything beats traveling alone! It was nice to just hang out and talk with my mom without any distractions. Maybe it’s because I’m older now or maybe because I’m married, or both, but I really, really treasure the times I spend with my parents.
Before heading off to Korea, I was a bit worried about the weather. But, much to my surprise, the weather was sooo nice! There was no need for the two thick coats I packed and I was in a t-shirt and jeans the entire time!
While it was a work trip, my mom and I made sure to make some time to go sight-seeing and appreciate the motherland. Here are a few “snippets” from our trip overseas. Hope you enjoy!
Till next time,
Actually, our one year mark was earlier this May (we went to Santorini to celebrate!), but I thought now was a good a time as any to reminisce. May 12, 2012 was magical for me (of course!), but what made our wedding day go by especially smoothly was all the amazing vendors that we worked with. From the venue and videographer down to the cake and flowers, we loved every moment of it, so I wanted to share a little snippet of our wedding here on the blog!
So without further ado…
We love our vendors: Church / Reception Venue / Wedding Coordinator / Photography / Videography / Linens & Chairs / Floral / Smilebooth / Cake / Invitations / Cake Topper
My husband J and I just came back from our one year anniversary trip to the Greek island of Santorini. I knew we were going to have a great time but didn’t know exactly what to expect – and this trip was beyond anything I ever expected.
When we arrived, I was in awe by the beauty and simplicity of Santorini. Every beautiful sunset and simple day to day things are memories I will never forget.
We stayed in two different places and enjoyed two separate areas of the island. In Oia (the most popular and picturesque Santorini destination) we stayed at Mystique Hotel, and in Megalohori (a more traditional village with breathtaking landscapes and endless vineyards) we stayed at Vedema Resort. Even though they were very different hotels, it was so nice to experience both parts of the islands.
A typical day in Santorini for us: We slept in until 10AM, ate breakfast, then rushed back to our hotel room to gather all our daily essentials. By 11, we were out the door and ready to explore the city. My husband and I rented ATVs for the week which was so scary at first, but once I got over my fear, I fell in love with the feeling of being carefree and the wind blowing through my hair. We usually came back to our hotel room by 8:30PM, had dinner and headed out again to catch the beautiful sunset. Every night there was a different shade in the sky. It’s something I can’t put into words, but it really gave me a sense of peace and is something I will always remember about Greece.
It feels good to be home, but I regularly find myself thinking about little moments we had in Santorini. The trip will always be in my heart and I promised myself that I will go back someday.
Happy one year anniversary to us and can’t wait for more memories in the upcoming years.
A few images from our trip:
Until next time,
Happy 28 weeks! You are officially waddling! I can’t believe it.
Well, I’ll have to admit that I have been secretly documenting you over the last several months. Baby boo is already 28 weeks old and I feel like your belly literally grew over night! I needed to capture this special time, so here are some images from my perspective of the past 28 weeks:
It’s been a really fast and crazy few months and there were times we were a little worried that baby boo was getting over worked, but she’s just been the best joy! Dr. Park has only said wonderful things about her. It just makes me think how much she’s already so much like you – so strong and independent, never giving us a worry.
I love you and it’s been the most amazing adventure to watch you go through motherhood.
Week 28 here we come!
In addition to the Everly updates and happenings, our Instagram is shamelessly filled of the savory adventures that we embark upon throughout the weeks. However busy we get, we ALWAYS have a satiable appetite for good food! From a morning cup of joe to savory apps to a late night bite of our favorite pie, there’s a recurring theme that makes our tastebuds dance: simple dishes that highlight its ingredients. Here is what’s making our tummies happy as of late:
It’s Friday and I can’t wait to sleep in, relax and eat some more good food! I hope you will do the same. Have an amazing weekend everyone!
