By the Lake






It’s hard to believe I’ve been back for a few days now from my Asia trip.  Just last week I was on a beautiful Bali beach watching the most gorgeous sunrise.

While the jet lag still lingers, I’ve used some of this “awake” time to comb through the photos we took and start organizing.  These pictures were taken during the early days of the trip when I was visiting family in Kaohsiung, Taiwan.  We stopped by a beautiful lake area to pay respects to my uncle who passed away this year.  It may look like just another ordinary summer day but it was very hot in Taiwan.  Every day, the temperatures rose to above 90 degrees.  Check back soon for what I did to cool down in the heat!

Feels Like Summer


lady2lady3What a gorgeous weekend we had in the Bay Area.  I know it might be premature to wear heeled sandals in March, but we hit close to 80 degrees!  I pulled out this summer dress from the closet for a coffee run.  Looks like it *might* be time to swap out the cashmere sweaters for some summer wear.

My sister came over this weekend for a short visit.  It was great to catch up with her and have sisterly bonding time…something that is scarce these days since we are both so busy with our jobs.  She’s thinking of taking time off to focus on personal interests.  Have you ever taken a leave of absence from work?  Sounds like such a good idea…

Happy Monday all!  Have a fabulous start to your week.  xoxo
