Meet the Chins.

March 28, 2010

Last weekend Steven & I went up to LA to visit Mark & Julie for the first time. It was so fun exploring their yellow Spanish-style home — they have the coolest antique furniture & prints on their walls! I also loved the warm light spilling in through all their windows.

Jules welcomed us with yummy fresh fruit, homemade guac, cookies & coconut macaroons. They also had vases with fresh-cut calla lilies from their backyard all over their house. So lucky!

They prepared for us a fancy stir-fry dish on a bed of spinach. Uber healthy but lots of protein — we loved it.

After dinner we went on a brisk walk around the neighborhood, a daily routine for them. Steven & I walked behind them, tripping over cracks & panting from trying to talk & walk at the same time. I felt like we were kids tagging along with our parents hahah. Came home & enjoyed french-pressed mochas, ice cream, & macaroons. :]

It was so sweet seeing them in their element & bustling about the house together. Only three months, but they look like they’ve been doing it for years. Thanks guys for making your home such an inviting place for us & showering us with lots of love (and food)! Miss you & hopefully see you soon!
