Experiments in Watercolors

I got an itch to learn how to watercolor a couple years ago and have been dabbling here and there since then. I started by trying to recreate some patterns I found via Pinterest (mostly flowery ones by Rifle Paper Co.), but I soon needed to find my own watercolor voice. This year I began a series of watercolors based off of photos from my travels. In the process of creating these watercolors, I discovered that I’ve been lying to myself for quite some time. I always said I couldn’t draw, but it turns out I can! I think I’m getting better with every new page in my watercolor Moleskine sketchbook.

Here are a few of my favorite watercolors so far:

A Summer in Squaw

This post is more than a little delayed seeing as we are fully into Fall now and I’m only just getting around to posting pictures from our summer in Squaw Valley. Where we are living right now is gorgeous as you can see, but we miss our community in Boulder, so we are moving back. There’s also much more opportunity and more diversity… that should say a lot! I’m excited to have a year long lease in a city that I love. I want to change my traveling ways and settle down for a few years at least. I’m tired of packing up my stuff and I would love to own some drawers to put things in 🙂

Here’s a little taste of our summer in Squaw Valley and the surrounding area in pictures. Read more

Road Trip! L.A. to Colorado in Photos

Leaving Los Angeles in our new car!!

Well everybody, we have hit the road again. We’ve spent the past month adjusting to life back here in the good ol’ U.S. of A. with my parents in Los Angeles, and now we’re in Colorado. We drove our brand new Hyundai Elantra Touring (very awesome Korean car!) from my hometown of Pacific Palisades, CA to Dave’s hometown of Silverthrone, CO. Here are some pictures from our two day drive. Read more

Dining on Dak Galbi – Stateside

What’s my favorite Korean dish? Dak galbi. Dak galbi. DAK GALBI! 

Yes, I might be a little over enthusiastic, but it’s seriously delicious. If you haven’t tried it, then you can’t judge. I love the occasional daeji galbi, but I consider that a once every two weeks kind of dish. Bulgogi is fantastic also, but doesn’t possess that special something that entices and excites me like dak galbi does. It’s a little more run-of-the-mill. Now dak galbi on the other hand, is just down right delicious, exciting and addictive. Read more
