Wedding Planning Trip #2

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

Time flies! It is now less than 4 months away from our wedding and we returned to KY to start laying down details for the day. This was a trip filled with indulgences - we began the trip with a tasting with McHale's, who will be providing our delicious reception dinner. After stuffing our bellies with delicious food and wine on Saturday afternoon, it was perhaps a small challenge for the men to undergo a fitting for their tuxes on Sunday! Monday was a day of pampering for Min, who got a mini-makeover with her hair and makeup trial. The trip ended with the sweetest  item of all - a cake tasting and planning session with the beautiful and talented Ileana of Sugar Realm, who will ... [There is more.

Engagement Photos Arrive!

Sunday, August 19, 2012

The photos taken at the Seattle Art Museum Olympic Sculpture Park/ Myrtle Edwards Park have finally arrived, and we are really excited to share them with you. We began the session at the 9-acre outdoor waterfront park, where sculptures are displayed against stunning backdrop of the majestic Olympic Mountains and Puget Sound. We then wandered through a series of gardens representing distinctive archetypal landscapes found in the Pacific Northwest. Finally, we continued the walk up to the Myrtle Edwards Park, following winding bike and pedestrian paths along Elliott Bay to capture additional waterfront views of Puget Sound. We ended our shoot at the spot of the Proposal, where we were ... [There is more. Click on the title above.][more]

Engagement Photography Session

Tuesday, July 17, 2012

Even though we have been fortunate to have taken some beautiful pictures when chronicling our times together, we have had poor success in collecting great pictures of both of us. We wanted to commemorate our special occasion with beautiful pictures that truly captured how we feel. And what better place to immortalize than the SAM Sculpture / Mytle Edwards Park? With the help of Kristen Marie Photography, we overcame our camera-shyness and spent two fun hours enjoying each otherís company and being happy-silly. The weather could not have been more beautiful, with plenty of sun!  We have seen a few of them so far, and canít wait to share the rest with our loved ones.[more]

Wedding Planning Trip #1

Wednesday, July 4, 2012

We flew out to Cincinnati to finalize the date and the locations for the wedding and the reception.  We were fortunate to attend Sunday Mass at Mother of God, during which we had the opportunity to listen to the church organist, Carol Jenkins, perform. Afterwards we had a great time at Ericís parentsí house with many of his uncles, aunts, and cousins who took to time to attend our engagement party! Many thanks to Ericís mother for putting together the family pool party as well as making the delicious ice cream from scratch.  Then we spent the next two days driving all over the Cincinnati/ Northern KY area, for vendor ideas. Overall the trip was a huge success, in which we were ... [There is more. Click on the title above.][more]

We Are Engaged!

Thursday, May 10, 2012

Nine months after we met and shared Molly Moonís maple walnut ice cream in Capitol Hill, we knew that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives sharing countless experiences together. Eric waited for a clear evening to recreate another beautiful sunset, which was not necessarily an easy task, given the typical May weather in Seattle. But thankfully the sun broke out over the SAM Sculpture Park/ Myrtle Edwards Park, where we had taken our first stroll on our sixth date. Apart from a few strollers, the Puget Sound waterfront was quiet and peaceful -- the perfect backdrop for the proposal. Afterwards, we sure surprised Minís mother, who was visiting Min in Seattle at the time, with the ... [There is more. Click on the title above.][more]

Thanksgiving 2009

Tuesday, December 22, 2009

This year I only told my younger Sister and my Mom that I was flying home for Thanksgiving. When I showed up at my parents house my mom did a great job of acting surprised while my dada truly was surprised. It was great fun for me. Jackson, Molly and Nate's 6-month old first born child, was one of the things we are all thankful for year, and as you can see most of this year's photo include him. As always a week with family was so much fun for me and actually felt like a vacation. I got the chance to visit with everyone, ate lots of Cincinnati Food (Frisch's, Skyline, Larosa's Pizza), and this year installed some new light fixtures with my dad.[more]

Home Improvement: Garage Door Control of 4 Shop Lights

Sunday, November 29, 2009

For a long time I've wanted better lighting when when pull into and out of the garage. The 60 watt bulb in the garage door opener is not only too dim, but, because it is centered over the car it casts heavy shadows and motion activated light switches don't work well with florescent lighting. My solution was to install an AC relay. The relay coil is powered by the light socket on the garage door opener. One side of the relay contacts are connected to a cord that plugs in to a 15 amp receptacle the other side goes to four receptacles mounted on the celling. With this configuration all of my ceiling lights come one when I open the garage door or close the door and automatically turn ... [There is more. Click on the title above.][more]
