Hi! I'm Katie and that's my husband Khanh - pronounced like con, as in pros and cons. He traveled 8,635 miles from Vietnam just to find me (OK, he actually came to America for schooling, and we met in college.)

I'm a small town girl transplanted to a big city, wife to the most hilarious husband, follower of Jesus, ice cream lover, married to my college sweetheart, reality TV watcher, elephant lover, soccer player, wanna-be DIY'er.

This blog is a way for Khanh and I to keep our family up to date on the adventures of moving to a new city where we don't know anyone, entering the "real world", decorating our first apartment, exploring our new neighborhood, and learning to cook. Did I mention that all of this is happening during our first year of marriage. No one said it'll be easy, but it will sure be fun!

Stick around and you'll see at least two new recipes each month, our wedding details, and the day-to-day craziness that is our life.

Thanks for stopping by our little part of the internet. I would love to get to know you, so please feel free to leave a comment or email me.
