{Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real.}


The peonies and anemones at my friend Tori’s wedding were just so beautiful. They were all done by her godmother–not an insanely over-priced florist, not that you can tell.


A little while back this strawberry rhubarb jam arrived from my mother-in-law (she grows her own strawberry and rhubarb and this jam is the most contested possession in our home). The same day my neighbor returned from France where she had bought me this towel–if you can even call it that when it is way too pretty to mop up anything. (Confiture means jam in French by the way.) Both jam gifts were from people on opposite ends of the world, but arrived to me on the same day–the serendipity makes me so happy!


For my friend Maddy’s birthday at the South Bay Beach Club (a great place for a party on a nice night), we all dressed up in Hawaiian. Fun and funny times.


I would never think I would call a toilet cute, but these mother / child toilets at the Hong Kong airport are so sweet!

I love how amazing the Hong Kong Airport is. It’s so great in fact that it was just voted best airport in the WORLD by in a world-wide survey involving 11.38 million participants over nine months for the eighth time.┬áSingapore placed second, Incheon (South Korea) third, Munich fourth, Beijing fifth… not surprisingly nowhere in the US made the top ten.

If you’re not lucky enough to be at somewhere so family-friendly, clean and considerate, you may be interested in this travel potty seat… as well as my kid travel tips earlier this week: gear and entertainment.

{Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real} is a fun link-up my mother and sis-in-laws have been doing over on their blog Like Mother, Like Daughter. Feel free to join them every Thursday (US time) or Friday (HK time).
