    Notes | February in 10 Photos

    February was filled with many sunny winter days spent walking, eating, and exploring, with jackets left unzipped and hats and gloves tucked away in bags, just in case. I've never been one to mind…

    Books of the Month | February

    This month, I read 12 books (including two graphic novels and one audio book). Not too shabby though I suspect my numbers will continue to drop as the year progresses. There were a few…

    Travel Notes | Seoul

    Sometimes it takes me a while (literally, years) to blog about the places we’ve been, and I hate that because so many memories, the insignificant yet special memories I love so much, seem to…
