both live in portland, oregon
they were both adopted from
korea when they were babies.
one is very involved in OKF- oregon korean foundation
and so every year we go to the
benefit dinner/auction with her
and her husband-
this year we had a table filled with family
and my sis in law was the chairman of the banquet...
she got up in the beginning of the evening
and welcomed everyone along with
organizing all kinds of little unseen things
that go into an event such as this so,
she was presented with an award and
it was just a wonderful night. :)
my sister in law and her husband
jane & dan
she wore a traditional korean dress called a hanbok which was handmade for her
her and i bid on two of the items.
we figured out ahead of time
which ones we were going to 'go for'
so i bid on one, and she the other,
knowing full well we would
take each other and the spouses
if we won...
well, her and i both won our items
we set out to get! :)
me; a wine tasting and tour of willamette valley vineyards
her; a dinner at a restaurant on the river by troutdale, oregon
the plan; go overnight to their house and head out
to the wine tasting and on our way home to stop
for a romantic dinner!
my honey and i-
remember when i posted about my love for polka-dots?
well this was a sweet little vintage dress with pearl buttons down the front
i wore them with some nude pumps that were also thrifted. :)
we had a great time getting away for
a few days where we could visit
with family...lots of eating and laughter
took place, i can tell you that! :)
today i am off to one of my daughter's friends
she has a vintage child's desk she wants to sell
for ten dollars?? oh yeah, i bought it sight unseen...
i am going to put it in my library/sewing room!
may you have a wonderful week
ahead of you
full of love and laughter!
