My sister and I took a little break from the dropping temperatures in Houston to celebrate another one of my old friend’s wedding in Miami last weekend. This was my first time in Florida and I have to say, the weather here during the winter season suited me just fine as there was no humidity and a constant breeze kept flowing through town. We stayed in a historic cottage in Little Havana where it was […]

Images from a weekend with friends and family. One of my oldest and closest friend got married and we all spent the weekend pampering ourselves, having good food and wine with old friends and enjoying a little girl time with hair and make up for her big day.

The place was very tranquil and secluded and except for a few other visitors walking around, the gardens felt like a secret place that only we knew about. The pink magnolias were in full bloom and was such a beautiful sight to behold. We […]

          I’ve been hanging around my sister’s house lately, trying to get lots of one on one time with the new baby before summer ends and school starts. We celebrated Olivia’s big 1 month with a party for our family. The grandparents cooked up a storm of delicious food last Saturday for their new favorite kid. Similarly to American baby showers, a Vietnamese one month party celebrates the birth of a newborn into the family. […]
