I’ve been a busy bugger, lately. Between work, blogging, family things, and some sad news in our church community, I’ve been pretty busy. However there are a lot of exciting things happening that I’m so excited to share with you!

  • We’re almost done decorating our apartment! It’s been taking what seems like, forever, because there’s so much of his stuff and my stuff to be organized. We’re realizing that there’s a ton of things we need to get rid of and give away to try to make it a livable enough space for both of our things.
  • I love plants, but cannot seem to properly take care of real ones for the life of me! Therefore, I purchased some faux plants to go with my real ones, so that way I’ll have pretty succulents and greenery to stick around all year ’round.
  • I still haven’t officially changed my name over, but hoping to do so sooner than later!
  • Our pastor passed away exactly two months after halmoni (grandmother in Korean). It’s been a rough few months as we were close to both, but we’re hanging in there by the grace of God and thankful for our families and our church family.
  • As I mentioned in a previous post, while I do occasionally use stock images from certain sites, I am hoping to eventually completely transition into using all of my photos – therefore stepping up my game in the area of stock photography. I’ve been working on my stock photography and flat-lay photography, lately in hopes of growing in this area. If you have any tips or resources to share, I’d love to hear it!


Current on the Blog+

  • I shared my first recipe post on the blog, recently. While I’m not a chef in any sense of the word and my presentation could use a bit of work, I was so excited to share this cold brew recipe that I created on my own with all of you.
  • I stopped looking at Google Analytics and it’s honestly one of the healthiest things I could’ve done for my blog. Feel free to read it to find out why!
  • Planning on traveling soon? Here some tips for saving money and stress while planning a trip!

  • I attempted to make Natalie’s Spiced Cold Brew recipe and it’s absolutely amazing! If you loved spiced lattes, you’ll love this!
  • I’ve been considering minimalism a lot, lately, and after reading this post I’ve felt so convicted in the area of spending. If I’m not careful, I will end up spending just to avoid dealing with grief or to distract myself under the guise of “treat yo’self.” If you’re anything like me, I would definitely recommend you check out this post  from Alannah!
  • My husband and I have been going between reading devotionals together and reading the bible from the beginning with each other, which has been nice. I would recommend reading the bible from the beginning again, because regardless of how many times I read Genesis, I learn something new each time I read it about Christ or something I didn’t see before.

I’m growing an appreciation for slow, weekend mornings and quiet evenings.
