About Us

I’m Jennifer (34), he’s Grant (43). We love each other, family, friends, and life. Our family means the world to us, especially our moms who taught us what it means to make a life for yourself out of poverty and adversity. My mom brought me from Korea to America when I was six. My husband was born in Hawaii. We are big lovers of music, old and independent films, good books, art, museums, eating, farmer’s markets, picnics in parks, traveling, exploring, taking long walks, sunset and mountain views, supporting underdogs and mom-and-pops, discovering new things, taking photos, and always trying to evolve into our better selves.

We love cranes not only because they are strong and graceful birds but because they symbolize loyalty and fidelity. Their long annual migration made cranes symbols of endurance, and the return of the cranes each spring made them symbolic of resurrection. The crane has a fabled life span of a thousand years, hence the tradition of folding a thousand origami cranes before a wedding. We didn’t have time to fold a thousand cranes before our wedding, but we damn well intend to live a full life. This blog serves as a diary of our journey together in Seattle and wherever else we land.
