First of all, watermelon. All day! Everyday! The bounty of fruit and vegetables in season during the summer makes my heart sing. 

My cousin, Chris, visited us last week! He lives in Seoul but he was in Peru teaching for the past two years and stopped by on his way back to Korea. I haven't seen him in about 10 years, so it was wondrous to have him in town and see him with my baby.  This is like a thing I collect now, moments of my daughter interacting with all the various people in my life, it brings me such joy. 

Bath crayons means I spend most of bath time drawing "big fishies!" during bath time. "Big! Big!" she keeps insisting. 

She is amazed by so many things these days, and that in turn, makes me become re-amazed at all the little things. We are forever gasping at things together.

I've been on a bourbon cocktail kick lately, but then I made this pear and ginger margarita the other day and heavens, it's one of my favorites. Also, I feel so pleased with myself when I'm making a pie. It's a process, but there is so much satisfaction derived from making a pie crust and then filling it up with fruity goods!  Lastly, I'm working on a sea salt spray concoction for my hair. I was contemplating purchasing one to try, but liked the idea of mixing up my own. I've taken the basics from this tutorial, but I'm working on the perfect combination of these things for my particular mane. 

With that, adieu! And hup hup for a week of work and rest - may you have both.
