Cupertino Retreat

Alex and I are lucky enough to have not only our primary residence in San Francisco but also a second home in Cupertino, which is really his parents’ property from when he went to school here. We have really enjoyed not only just the privilege of having two homes, but also the joy of both…

Bay Area | September, 2021

It’s time for the September recap! We began the month with our accountability meeting, this time at Cassie’s house. With Do-Hee joining online. Dinner with Alex at Nari in Japantown. We visited pre-pandemic but wanted to come support it again. They now have a prix fixe menu, which we opted for. So delicious! Maybe a…

Isolayered

Last year, in the midst of shelter-in-place, I set out with a group of photographer friends to work on a collaborative art project titled Isolayered. As we have since returned to some version of normalcy and then gone back towards isolation again, I’m reflecting on the beauty and the difficulty of community when connection becomes…

We had been fully vaccinated for over a month already, and started expanding our social circles and reclaiming old things like indoor dining, photographing full weddings, and going maskless. But then with…

June! The month in which everything returned, all at once. We got to start the month with our first in-person Accountability meeting since the beginning of 2020! What an incredible feeling.

Bay Area | May, 2021

May was a whole lot of shuttling back and forth between our two homes, in San Francisco and the South Bay. Plus, we completed our vaccines and worked our way to some sense of normalcy! First, bagels from Daily Driver. And a homemade tri tip sandwich, with tri tip that Alex smoked. At the house,…

Bay Area | April, 2021

Welcome to the April recap! The big task of the month was moving out of my Oakland apartment after a decade of living there! See some glimpses of our month below: Paint Club patterns drawing, part two! I made this very fun Taiwanese fruit pattern and actually printed it as fabric! I’m hoping to sew…

February. Almost one year later, still living the pandemic life. Our Office of Accountability has new swag! Thank you for designing these, Do-Hee! A walk at Fremont Older Preserve in Cupertino.

Bay Area | December, 2020

December was a full month, filled with holiday decor, videochats, bouncing between San Francisco, Cupertino, and Oakland, and neighborhood walking tours, which I decided would be their own post. Recap below. Our Office of Accountability Friendsgiving went virtual this year. Here’s Do-Hee presenting my secret santa gift for Eileen — seeds, and this stack of…
