Evelyn’s first birthday was all about combining her mom’s love for fashion and modern art, which came alive in this backdrop. We mixed watercolor painting (by yours truly and amyleepaints) and fresh flowers (individually placed by hanabyhannah) which was my version of a modern floral art piece. Thanks to all the amazing vendors who made this vision come alive! 📷: sincerelyso and a big thank you to my dear nanceeezy for taking on the coordinating, and making sure everything went smoothly!

In Korean tradition, the first birthday, called a dohl, is a very important milestone; it is usually celebrated in grand fashion. Unfortunately, due to COVID, we were not able to throw a huge celebration like we did with our other two kiddos. But we still made Arabella’s day special, and honored her Korean heritage by setting up her special dohl table and taking pictures (thanks to the help of our remote controlled little tripod), and having her take part in her doljabi with Paul, myself, and the kiddos cheering her on. A doljabi is a Korean tradition where the baby is placed in front of a blanket filled with different objects, each one signifying a certain profession. Whatever object the baby grasps is said to be what the child will end up becoming in the future. For Arabella, her objects were a stethoscope, signifying a doctor; a Super Bowl ring, symbolizing an athlete; a spoon, for a chef; a tin whistle, signifying a musician; a pencil, for a teacher; a pair of sunglasses, for an actress; and a large coin with the of seal of the United States of America, signifying the future president. Watch to see what Arabella chose!

We are so blessed to be surrounded by so many people that adore Grey. I hope he looks back on these memories and really feels the love that we felt on this day.

Fun fact: Simon made this back drop all by himself! 😍 I’m so lucky to have such a creative, artistic, and supportive hubby to help me fulfill my crazy party dreams!
Happy 1st Birthday Russell!

Prima Aria 🕊
As you may or may not know, Koreans traditionally throw a grand celebration for babies' 1st birthday called a "dol" or 돌. I was so nervous about how to pull all this off but the end result was literally jaw-dropping in huge thanks to madebydavinakim who is not only an extremely talented event planner but an incredibly generous and kind human being as well. Im still reeling from all the thought, love, time, and hard work put into Aria's dol. I can't wait to share more when I get the photos back, but until then I wanted to give my deepest gratitude to all the vendors who helped make the event beyond what we even dreamed! We will never ever forget how today was made so special for Aria!

Words cannot express how thankful I am to my team of vendors that I consider family. Even though they are losing sleep due to my events, while taking care of mommy duties, and finishing up orders for other events...they still manage to pack me a snack, and send me daily texts reminders to eat and drink water, staying late at the office to make sure to squeeze in my orders, and ask if they can run any errands for me even though their to-do list seems endless. Thank you keeping me alive and well this weekend. And to my beautiful team who took care of my events with so much love and care. I got through 5 events because of you guys. #neveragainlol
