A New Thumbprint

a new thumbprint: my blogger to wordpress story

New Beginnings. July 2013 marked a few key events. First, my blog had recently and unassumingly passed it’s third birthday. Second, I moved to Nashville to start a new job. Third, I realized something unexpected had happened under my nose: my blog’s original domain ( was purchased by a domain investor in Thailand.

The third realization led me to read more about the possibility of transitioning from Google-owned Blogger to WordPress. Eventually I sought professional help and made the leap. So here I am at WordPress, making a new blogging thumbprint.

Thank you both to Andrea Whitmer at Nuts & Bolts Media and Jesse Michelsen at Splyced Hosting for seamlessly performing the migration.

Our Wedding

On Saturday June 9, 2012, I married my best friend in Mammoth Lakes, California.

Our wedding is being featured today on Style Me Pretty California. Please head over there for more pictures & details.

I cannot believe half a year has already passed since our wedding.

It has been both easy and hard not to write about our wedding weekend here. Easy because I started my medical residency shortly after the wedding, and my time has been filled with work. Hard because this is my creative space and right-brained outlet from work, and I had to refrain from sharing glimpses all the creativity.

I’ve decided that in the coming days, I will make time at the very least to write about two wedding-related topics. First, more on the inspiration behind our wedding design. And second, about the creation of my wedding gown.

Happy 2013!


Baja Tiles

Two weeks ago was one of my treasured vacation weeks of the year.

We took a long weekend holiday, and drove down to Baja Mexico to stay in the picturesque community of Las Gaviotas.

This is the pretty tile stairway leading to the entrance of the house where we stayed.

Happy Holiday Season!
