At the moment~

I don't feel very powerful... I feel human. I am with the same vulnerabilities and experiences of consequences as everyone else.

This little being of a baby inside me right now is due in 2 weeks. Will she be happy with growing up and able to live to the very full with what she possibly could? I'd like to be wary of that. A lot of it has to do with my relations with people around me and how I may draw kindness, blessings of the Creator by always forgiving, always seeking what's favorable for those around me, and sensing our oneness in how we may affect each other.

I guess... whatever path we are on, we will learn about it. What is good and what is not; what we are blessed with and what is missing in the picture.

Just a video...

... to get it started.

More fruit

I will strive for more fruit and less or nothing of the rest.

Whether I put it at the forefront of my mind or not, it always makes a difference if I am including the non-good food. I feel best; fresh, on fruits and some lettuces. My body acts weirdly with the addition of non-good food in different measures. I think my 5 months in the making baby would like it a lot too. Besides, I really want to do this the proper way, eating a lot of fruits and not under-eating or having seasonings. Fruit is Awesome, no doubt about that! Can't beat it. ; )

Also, I am feeling well now! Yeah, my tummy has a bit of bulge but I can be active and exercise. I have energy! I did not feel this way in my first trimester, no sir-ree, not at all. I'm going to be doing something great with it.


Side news: My husband's riddles are being posted daily on The Washington Post for 30 days. If you like solving riddles, you can see his original ones here.

Lovin' the fruity Summer days...

I'm not pure fruit lately but enjoying lots of it... and bowlfuls of the fresh tender greens!

I love my nephew. Can't see his cuteness in the clip. He is staying with us until the weekend when his parents come back from vacation.

He turned 1 in late June!

He didn't like wearing his traditional Korean outfit...

but he liked the football (or any round object he can throw/roll/bounce) and I think he liked the singing too!

I am tutoring quite a lot. My autistic student has his own blog he writes in with assistance in spelling and syntax from his tutors (me and another girl who work with him on different days).

I have one last summer class (a Biology course) I am now taking before I am finally done with my bachelor's degree in Psychology! I am not allowed to participate in dissections (so no lab for this week for me) since I am pregnant (5 months this Thursday, can you believe it?).

Our wedding photographer hasn't gotten back to us with the proofs yet. My cousin took and sent me some pictures.

Our flower girl. She was timid so her mom came and walked with her.

Happy Summer, love and care to all!

Wedding reflections

Just thought I'd update about our wedding. None of these are by our professional photographer, as those are not ready yet. These are taken by friends and family.

Our first dance. The bridesmaids dresses were gorgeous, with rhinestones along the front and sheer material which split down the dress.

Obtaining the garter: I was telling Tom not to lift the dress too high.

Here is our centerfold piece at the country club. This is a church member behind the centerfold. There were vanilla scented tea lights surrounding this. The butterflies were inserted into the oasis. The floating flower is a Gerber daisy.

High school friends who came out.

When I get pictures, I'll post of our cute flower girl (cousin's daughter who looks like Precious Moments toddler) and perhaps some from the ceremony. Tom picked me up and carried me down the aisle.

It was fun. The next day I got nauseous, threw up, and slept for 15 hours. Feeling much better today.

My hubby-to-be and I questing

My hubby-to-be and I are going raw vegan, but mostly fruitarian. He gave a comprehensive review of each recipe we made on his site.

I made him Ani Phyo's almond mylk cereal with bananas instead of the Smart Monkey bar, and we made some salsa with added mushrooms and chives together.

Also had cantaloupe, Ataulfo mangoes, honey tangerines, green grapes, dates and walnuts (I only had one). I felt so good and happy after my raw day. I was also happy we got him full. We're going to be making more of Ani Phyo's recipes, like the Dolmas and Spanish Scramble, since it helps with satiation. We're having those recipes without the salt, however. We'll see how it goes this way.

As an off-topic note, here are our wedding invitations. I wanted to have an Enchanted Forest theme to our wedding but we shall see.

Farewell to the horrors of the cooked realm. I abhor certain foods right now. I hate major sources of fat and protein. Water is good. Mangoes are kind to me.

I am ready for spring and summer. For melons.
I dropped these melon seeds last summer and they flowered into the fall but didn't make it for the winter. This time I will save the seeds and plant them in the spring.

My day of expectancy is December 2nd.
