My beautiful friend Katherine and her perfect little family! There’s so much I can say about the Hong family…like how my dear friend has the most amazing Australian accent ever. This is slightly embarrassing, but I end up thinking all my thoughts with an Aussie accent for a couple of days whenever I spend any time with her. Her husband Stephen was a pilot in the Air Force until recently when they opened up a restaurant called Salad Republic in Irvine at the University Town Center by UCI. I really love how much thought and care they put into their restaurant. Their produce is sourced from local farmers and they buy organic whenever possible. They also offer real greek yogurt with fresh fruit toppings which my kids love! If you ever stop by, make sure you get their tomato basil bisque. It’s to. die. for. I never even liked tomato soup until I had theirs. It’s still the only one I like!
When I had Emmeline, my heart would fill with so much joy whenever Katherine eemo (auntie) would love on her. When she got pregnant with her second, she prayed for a girl and prayed she would have some major baby rolls. She wanted her baby to have chunky thighs and smooshy cheeks like Emmeline. She got her wish with her adorable baby Lauren! Now I adore watching my girls dote on the newest baby in our Mommy group.
