We Have Arrived!

It's official - we are in Seattle and the house hunt has begun!  My posts will continue to be spotty until we get the housing situation figured out.  Needless to say that is distracting me considerably but it's also very fun.  :)  More on that soon...

I have a lot to share with all of you from our travels but I have to get the pictures organized, among other things, so that will take a while since that is falling lower on the priority list right now.  :)  A few quick comments though: 

Hong Kong was good, but Bali was better.  Bali was incredibly rich in authenticity -- much more than I expected it to be, given how many tourists they host.  That meant that we definitely got a good dose of Asian culture, while also enjoying a lot of beachy relaxation time.  The people were also consistely friendly, helpful and oh-so-happy.  It was a fantastic experience. 
Here are just a few pictures for now - this doesn't do Bali justice AT ALL but it's a little taste.  I promise to be back soon to regular blogging programming with more from our trip as well as other design inspirations when life gets sorted a bit!


Culture was found at every turn...

Great wildlife for family adventures... 


 and endless shopping!


Thanks so much for the wonderful comments that came in while we were away.
I really ppreciate the supportive comments and well wishes, and enjoyed reading them!
