yes, we did

November 5, 2008

I have been afraid to talk about the election, nervous that my hope would sound naive, worried that any prediction would somehow jinx us, fearful that I would be let down like I was before. But today my heart is filled with gladness. Rama and I fell asleep earlier than usual last night. Before dozing […]

A glimpse at the amazing villa where we stayed, San Miguel de Allende, Mexico We’re back. Mexico was delightful, the wedding was beautiful, and I am wiped out! I have a gazillion photos to go through, a few deadlines to hit and some laundry to do. But all I want to do is bake chocolate […]


we’ll be seein’ ya

October 19, 2008

Me & Rama, in the fuzzy reflection of my car window Off to Mexico for our sister Lali’s wedding. I’m so looking forward to a week of fun & festivities. While I’m gone, you may want to check out my interview with Poketo where I talk about what inspires me and my idea of a […]

As an unofficial spokesperson for gratitude, even I forget to give thanks for what I have. Luckily, I have friends to remind me and put things into perspective. My friend Debby shared a poem on her site that reflects, she said, “the potential for us all to be grateful even when life is difficult.” As […]


one leap for me

October 5, 2008

This weekend, I remembered what it feels like to take a courageous little leap. Along with some seriously talented artists and a couple friends, Rama and I are going to be in An Illustrated Life, a book by the fabulous Danny Gregory about artist sketchbooks and journals (coming out mid-to-late November). To promote the book, […]


life is sweet

I treated myself to this scrumptious cupcake from Frosted in Long Beach after a tiring client meeting two weeks ago. It’s a quiet Sunday evening. Rama’s working in the office, and I am sitting in our comfy chair in the corner of the living room, waiting for soup to simmer and pizza dough to rise. […]


early bird

September 22, 2008

Something miraculous has happened since returning home last week: I have become a morning person. Before, I’d get up at 8 or 9, stumble to the kitchen bleary-eyed and slightly cranky, put on a pot of water for the french press, meander coffee-in-hand to the office and slooowly start my day (in my PJs). But […]


bottling the magic

September 19, 2008

We are on a high. We are floating, glowing, soaring. We are rejuvenated. We are inspired. Our hearts and our minds are filled with lessons learned, ideas shared and dreams realized, but now what do we do? How can we make it last? Can it last? I have been on enough retreats—some of them transformative, […]

My piece inspired by and created from the woods during Penelope’s Earth Project class When I showed up Thursday morning to Penelope’s Earth Project class, I had no idea what to expect. I was just happy to go outside. The project: Make a piece of art using our surroundings based on what we want or […]


  • I'm Christine, and this is a slice of my life—a sweet, rich, wildly indulgent slice that would taste really good with a scoop of Breyers vanilla bean ice cream. Read more >>

  • I run a darling, friendly, little graphic design studio.
    I look on the bright side.
    I take photos. Lots of photos.
    I wish on stars and on websites.

  • I built my first web site 7 years ago and got 15 seconds of fame. (It changed my life.)
    I launched, then relaunched, an online magazine.
    I admitted to several embarrassing crushes.
    I consumed more bacon than any human should and lived to tell the tales.
