Joule has been one of our newest favorite restaurants (posted about their brunch here)... to the point we took all our out of town guests here during the holidays. I love their custom sign playing off their name and Korean-fusion theme.
The process of our wedding invitations was quite an adventure... Since husband and I both love photography, we wanted to incorporate that into our wedding, from our DIY photobooth Save the Date to our Polaroid wedding invitations. I first saw this idea from a graphic designer online so I hired the company to create our invitations. Three weeks before the projected deadline of sending out our invites, the company completely ceased contact. I sent reminders and questions, but received no responses. Finally, when I still hadn't heard back on the day we were supposed to have sent the invites out, I contacted my online friend Josie. Josie and I have "known" each other for years, and she had recently started her own graphic design company. I emailed her in a panic hoping she would be able to reproduce the vision of our Polaroid wedding invitations. Josie worked super hard on them, cutting out all the photos and Polaroids by hand, and shipped them to me within a week. She even gifted us a handmade personalized family tree, which was so sweet. Josie, I cannot thank you enough!

I'm a few weeks late on posting about holidays... blame crazy 6am-11pm workdays this past month. Anyway, the Christmas tree is no longer in our living room, but I am still wearing this holiday dress around. It's so classic and wearable, yet the lace makes it fancier for occasions. I always like to keep accessories simple but high-impact, like festive, sparkly pumps, a bold red lip, and diamond earrings my parents gifted me on my wedding day.
We love Revel and its sister restaurant, Joule, which recently remodeled and moved to Fremont. I'll post about dinner there soon because it is just so good. Today we checked out their brunch, further proving that these two sibling restaurants can do no wrong.

Never knew I would revisit the letterman jacket post high school, but I fell for the sweater sleeves and dusty pink body on this one from Madewell. Anyway, my husband aka blog photographer started his side photography business! He is available for portraits, engagement sessions, and weddings. Please like his page on Facebook! Thank you for your support. :)

First post of the new year! Christmas decor has been shelved away, and we've literally thrown away our tree -- as in, we tossed it over our deck into the yard, which seemed the easier/less pine needles everywhere option. I'm hoping these green lace pants will give me a small reminder of the past wonderful holiday cheer while wearing them as I return to work...
