welcome 2009

January 1, 2009 |  Category:   holidays life


Ever since Mia was born, I designed an annual christmas card that was meant to be looked upon as a series and a record of the girls each year. This year, however, I missed the boat since I was blindsighted with work in December and didn’t end up mailing any cards as I normally do. Not wanting to break with tradition, I quickly put this together the other day so as not to break the series (all the cards have shared a similar aesthetic and design).

It was a good day today. My parents, brother and cousin came over to eat dumpling soup, a Korean new year’s tradition and it’s becoming an annual thing where my parents have been coming over to our house instead of us spending it at theirs. One year Mark and I even made the dumplings from scratch and we plan to do that again when the girls are a little older to help. Happy new year to all! I am hopeful that it will be a good year.
