Pretty Nails & Kitty Toes
Of course I already paid a visit to Essence, the nail salon that I discovered during my bike excursion around the town of Uruma.
Since I already had my toes did, I decided to give my fingernails a shot (even though I traditionally avoid manicures due to their depressingly short life-span.) I’m curious to see how long I make it before the first chip!
This is home…
We are all moved into the new apartment, and Miss Bean (& Co.) couldn’t be happier!
Seriously, it is so wonderful to have all our stuff again, since we have been living out of suitcases for 2 months. I’m especially excited to have gone to the grocery store. Chuck and I are both feeling the benefits of balanced, home-cooked meals again.
People keep asking for photos of the new crib, but honestly, there isn’t much to see – it’s just plain military housing. Now that it’s come together with furniture and such, it’s looking better, but I kinda want to get some Japanese pieces to make it a little more ‘Murica-Asia-Fusion!!
…But there is plenty of time for all that, of course 🙂 In the meantime, I am grateful for the plentiful space, the mini-balcony, and the 5th floor city view! This is home, and I have already learned to love it.
Asian Food Porn 2.0
Here’s a little Asian food porn for ya: Today’s lunch at Transit Cafe on the Seawall, which was comprised of tuna, avocado, seaweed, rice, a quail egg, sea grapes, and some sort of delicious sauce #yum
I had such a wonderful time back home with friends and family! Big thanks to everyone who made time to hang out with me 🙂

Beauty of Provence
I can see why artists were so inspired by this region. The lights, the shadows, and the interplay between the two… not to mention the soft, whimsical colors. Le sigh!
J’aime beaucoup Paris, Mais je pense que j’adore le Provence… #view from our window in #Gordes! #france #provence #countryside #hilltop #village (at La Bastide De Gordes & Spa Hotel)
