A Pioneerish Apron
This is kind of a surprise, but...since the recipient of this apron probably doesn't read this blog...I'm probably safe. (Besides, I couldn't figure out how to photograph the apron so you could see it properly, so I'm sure she'll still be surprised when it arrives in the mail!)
My little sister is participating in Trek in a few weeks. Trek is a youth activity at church that, over the span of three days, marches youth ages 14-18 across a large piece of land, reenacting circumstances from the pioneers' trek across America. This includes, but is not limited to, dressing in appropriate period clothing, eating appropriate period food, washing your hair with lye soap, packing only 17 pounds of gear per person, and carting it all in a handcart.
I'm Aunt LoLo, mama to Ming Wai, Siu Jeun and Ying Ying. Wife to Lo Gung. The LoLo Life is all about living life my way: proud Mormon, fierce Mama, aspiring Writer. Part of our journey is striving to blend two beautiful cultures (American and Chinese) and help our children be comfortable on either continent, in either language. We do this through food, language, and festival celebrations. Welcome!
