Life Lately


The moment we left home and started driving away, I started bawling.  Like a baby.  I’ll be 29 in 3 months and there I was.  Bawling. It’s been nearly 2 weeks now and it still hasn’t quite sunk in but we’re just about settled in and I’m enjoying the slow pace of the island.  Everyone [...]

The Squishy Monster is moving to the beach! This is something that’s been on my bucket list for quite some time and I’m ecstatic that by next week, we’ll be living just a few blocks from the beach.  We combed through all the details this past weekend {not without some play time, of course} and [...]

On the menu: J’s grilled lobster and filets, grilled flatbreads and corn, bacon wrapped jalapeños, a fruit bouquet, raspberry lemon [...]

Strawberry pickin’ for chocolate covered strawberries to share with our [...]

Nostalgic Bites

I miss Korea.  I haven’t been since I was 16 and boy is the entire experience always stuffed with culinary delights.  Not only does the entire family flock around the kitchen and celebrate with food, my aunties are constantly fussing over you to eat, eat and eat some more.  One of the more memorable moments [...]

Loving Lately


Pizza wars!  20 local vendors compete for the title of best pizza in town.  My belly was more than happy to be involved. A juicy gouda, bacon, avocado, onion string burger at the new joint down the street. Sushi with J, and a show afterwards…   and another, and another… polishing off the night with [...]
