Our family is still getting used to warm weather during the holiday season, which feels uncharacteristic to the snowy winters I've become accustomed to my entire life in New York and Seoul. This year was particularly special as some of our extended family traveled out west to celebrate grandma's 90th birthday in LA.
The latter half of 2018 was overtaken by personal studies, resulting in significantly less creative explorations in my time outside of work. With the additional weight of these pursuits, good food, quality time with loved ones, and exercise became my personal outlets to decompress and unwind. While I’m not into new year’s resolutions, I do want to make an effort in the next couple of seasons to find a better balance and get back to personal creative projects.
Below, a few favorites from various trips to LA over the holidays and a last-minute staycation in Napa Valley.
This is what 90 looks like!
