Started the year our right with Korean traditional New Year’s soup: 떡국 or dduk gook in the morning (ok, it was actually lunch -_-).
Plus some kimchi, which I made for the first time from scratch a month ago and made an additional side dish of pan fried tofu with sauce. Though I envy the bountiful spreads of the legit ajooma New Year’s breakfasts, this was just right for our little fam!
Theres a lot of creativity required when trying to pull off Halloween whilst moving into a new home. Behold: zombie doctor, Arden!
And her victims/patients (she gobbled us up, and then felt ethically bound to stitching the wounds):
So grateful for a fun, first Halloween in San Francisco. Our friends, Florrie, Kevin, Annabelle and Leo (another Atlanta transplant family) were gracious enough to invite us to their famous street in Cole Valley (Belvedere), which had a live band and awesomely decorated houses. #scaryblessed
Also, special shout out to mom, Carol Saddington for buying the doctor and pirate dress ups for Arden’s birthday in January. Went a long way towards helping us hack together another zero spend Halloween!

Many of these photos were taken in our old home and new apartment (hence the multiple arrangements). More photos and items to come….
John is super overwhelmed with work these days. He’s living in the “good tension” of a company growing at incredible speed and all the transitions that come with it (not to mention lots and lots of hard work!).
After running without break for nearly 2 weeks straight, he finally canceled all his afternoon appointments today to come home and take a nap. In truth, he could barely speak straight he was so pooped.
So, naturally, I thought “we needed to have a super serious talk, right now,” and pounced on him after he had crawled into bed. *warning: lots of The Lord of the Ring references!
Me: Hey, you need to get a grip. You’re falling down the mountain. Like, the Misty Mountain.
J: [eyes closed, smiling] The misty mountain?
Me: Yeah. Do you want to be the king under the mountain or the king on top?
Me: Do you want to live on top of one of the two towers or in the place they make the orcs? Hmm?
Me: Because if you don’t get a grip, you’re going to fall into the crack where they make the orcs. That is all, someone’s texting me.
