Hello, and welcome! 

My name is Liz, but a lot of people call me by my middle name, Mei. I'm originally from Washington but I called Utah home for almost seven years. I moved to the Bay Area after my husband, Chris, and I both graduated from Brigham Young University (Me: Asian Studies and Japanese. Chris: Animation).

Chris and I met in Japan, fell in love at BYU, and got married in Seattle. Together we love watching animated movies, trying new restaurants, taking pictures, traveling, wearing beanies, and playing board games. We recently welcomed a baby girl into our family and we love our life as a family of three. 

Our daughter, Emi, was recently diagnosed with CDKL5 Deficiency Disorder, a rare genetic disease that affects neurodevelopment. While that doesn't define her (or our family), it's become a big part of our life. I created this little blog when I was a college freshman to keep my family updated but life has changed quite a bit over the last eight years. It will continue to change but for now, this is a place where I share bits of our daily life, travels, and CDKL5 journey. We have our share of bad days but we're trying our best to find joy in the little things and hope you'll feel some happiness while here. Thanks for reading!
