recent snaps

We just returned from our honeymoon to Catalina Island.  I loved every bit of that trip and returned feeling inspired.  Here are some photos of some recent pieces as well as my first attempt at making udon noodles.

can I live on a houseboat already, please?

I love this video on artist Heather Wilcoxon from In the Make.  I have been living in SoCal for the almost 6 months now and haven't met too many artists out here yet.  Perhaps they're all on houseboats? Wouldn't that be dreamy.

We headed over to Big Joy Bakery & Cafe today to try this patbingsu, which is pretty much the best thing ever.  The little bits that look like gum drops are mochi and there is red bean under that.  Yum!

a wedding

This past weekend we got married in La Jolla at the MCASD. Surprise! It was not quite an elopement but it was a very tiny wedding. I made these embroidered hankies for the guests and this one was my favorite.

North Shore

Living in SD is really all about the surfing.  Not so much for me but you know, it's in the culture here.  It takes me back to one of my favorite movies, North Shore.  I'm not so sure it holds up as much now but this montage has some of the best lines and reminds me how Turtle is definitely the best character.
