Introducing the Louie’s to Honeyberry…
What’s not to love about food and family…?
Newest addition, plus a couchful of Cheung women.

Spending some time with mom, auntie Sue, and Bri to figure out flowers for the wedding…
Family affair to transplant a peach tree into our front yard!
It’s a few days early, but the cousins are celebrating Ryan’s birthday while we’re in town.

My mom never ceases to surprise me. Stopped by their house for lunch after a run, and was greeted with this!

Midnight (rather, 2am) munchies…
Keeping to the Chinese tradition of abundance…
On the drive down to LA. Also in the San Luis Reservoir area.
Henning and I took the day off, and he had a line of surprises… Half Moon Bay, dinner at the Mountain House with my parents, and Watercourse Way.
At my parents’ favorite Korean restaurant, in Santa Clara…
Cooking lots of food! It’s a family affair!
The brunch crowd, the Golden Gate Bridge, then finally a celebration dinner with my parents. :)
Had dinner with my parents – my mom was thoughtful enough to make a gluten-free blueberry loaf. :)
Pan seared scallops with mango lettuce wraps…
Pumpkin curry… and broccoli (my favoriteeee)!
Arrived back in San Francisco, and headed to Koi Palace for a treat of a dinner!

It’s a beautiful day! Lots of friends and family showed up for Jamie’s bridal shower at her Aunt Paula’s!
After Isaac’s 100-day-old baby celebration (Red Egg & Ginger Party), we somehow managed to squeeze everyone into our humble apartment and celebrate 2 of this week’s birthdays!
…and then went to eat some more. Cheung family style…
Driving to LA… beautiful snow by the Grapevine!
…at least until our car broke down…
…still beautiful but COLD!
Scenes from around town…
Grandma’s backyard, PT at Highlands Elementary School (overlooked by the Highlands Husky?), Penny, and dinner at Lawry’s with the family.
End of the year! (And post 777)
I guess it’s obvious and important to note that I couldn’t capture EVERYTHING, but hopefully looking back one day, this blog can serve for quick reminders of good moments and memories.
To round out the “Things I’m Thankful For” series… my parents, Henning, Penny, family members unnamed, everyone who has been kind to me and probably those who haven’t. Thank you to anyone who inspired me, anyone who included me and anyone who let me include them.
Below is the lazy man’s collection of photos I found when cleaning out my phone, in random order. Most of them are from 2012.
All have something positive in them.
To health and happiness in 2013,
Persimmons are STILL one of my favorite parts of fall.
Last year I posted a photo of persimmons from the farmers market because I ate the homegrown ones too quickly.
Here are some from my mom’s backyard!
I could eat these all day.
It really was a long weekend. Too many things to try to document. Here are a few.
Morning walks/workouts with cousin Steve.
Couch time at Grandma’s.
So many reasons Thanksgiving in LA is my favorite.
Today’s my birthday! I wanted to share some photos of my handsome boyfriend who helps me get through all of the days.
Also, a special shoutout to my parents, on their 26th parenting anniversary! <3
Sometimes you just can’t escape the wonderful simplicity of some fresh pasta. The few colorful strands were a gift from my parents lol.
My parents have been slowly working on the back yard. They recently changed the fence in this corner (lets more light through), removed the shrubbery, and this weekend took out a palm tree!
Roamin the streets….
Walking up to the Greek Theatre…
What a cool city. For the most part, I’m going to try to let the photos speak for themselves. :)
Look at the water level!
(Piazza San Marco) St. Mark’s Square..
Bridge of Sighs…
