frmheadtotoe 🤯🥰 My heart swells to bursting each time I look at this photo. Thank you so much, my sister from another mister @mellylee_ for capturing so much life and truth during this quarantine (with a telephoto lens no less) and maybe one of the most gripping photos I’ve ever had taken of me. It’s hard to explain how this image makes me feel... Locked in love but not locked up. Vulnerable. Holding onto my greatest struggle and equally my greatest accomplishment. I will treasure this image forever knowing that it captured a time when we were forced to face a lot of our fears and yet revealing so much strength that I didn’t think I had in me. Thank you for capturing me in a way I couldn’t see myself as until now ❤️
frmheadtotoe AHHHH! 👈 Did you interpret that as being stressed or relaxed? 🤪 #kiwipartner It really is so important to be cognizant of our mental well-being and stress levels ESPECIALLY during this time. I’ll be the first to admit that there are times I forget to check in with myself and process it all (anyone else’s brain decide to run through ALL the things just when you are trying to fall asleep in bed?!) and I have the *fortune* of having that stress show up on my skin but being the amazing partner and dad he is, @ben.ja.mins told me not to worry about the kids and to take a long soak in the tub which has always been one of my favorite ways to de-stress 🙌 I was also especially excited to use my @kiwibotanicals Nourishing Shower Gel & Body Conditioner because we 👏 love 👏 a clean beauty line over here which is sulfate & paraben free and utilizing Manuka Honey sustainably sourced from New Zealand which I swear by for health & skin. I also love that this new line is affordable and available on rollback exclusively at @walmart

frmheadtotoe If you are feeling overwhelmed, stressed, burdened, stir-crazy, depressed, exhausted, or frustrated, know that we are in this together even if we are separated for now 🤝Although the days blur together, time will heal and there is still so much to be grateful for especially when we remember to reflect on those good things.
Maybe it’s my Asian side or just my desire to be self-sufficient & not burden anyone but a personal struggle I have is to just ask for an ear to listen. BUT the honest truth is that, especially now, everyone needs to hear someone outside their own brain say it’s OKAY to feel whatever you are feeling. So if you are feeling great, remember to still check in with your friends and family and if you are struggling, please reach out to the person whom you secretly wish would hit you up.
And if you need to hear it: I love you, you are beautiful as you are, we are all struggling in one way or another, there’s still hope, and we’ll get through this one day at a time. Let yourself feel. You’re much stronger than you give yourself credit for 💪
frmheadtotoe 1, 2, or 3? 😏
p.s. we only convinced Aria to match the rest of us by letting her wear her “princess” holographic shoes and stuffing her pink dress under her jacket.
But someday she’ll appreciate how cool her parents are 😎
frmheadtotoe It’s always been a deep desire of mine to instill pride for being Asian-American in the hearts of my kids as well as for other Asians I interact with, the same way my parents raised me to be.
Growing up in Kansas, my parents had to work twice as hard to show us what it meant to be from such a rich culture. I remember once in elementary school my mom and I wore our hanboks and brought two extras for classmates to wear for a show-and-tell presentation for our class. I thought it was so cute to see my blonde and brunette friends in our traditional dresses and everyone was wowed by the bright colors and intricate details. I was so excited to teach my friends about a small part of my heritage and to see others embrace it as well 🥰
You can only imagine how incredible it is to now see everything from BTS at the Grammys to k-beauty being EVERYWHERE. I literally get choked up when I stop to really think about it. I never thought I would see the day when everyone around me would even know what Korea WAS, much less rave about it the way they do today. Being Asian-American has never been easy but like Sandra Oh said, it’s an HONOR just to be Asian.
In celebration of Asian & Pacific Heritage Month (APHM), I got together with my Asian American friends & creators to share our stories. Check out these other talented women to see what they have to say about their Asian American identity & experience ❤️

frmheadtotoe #ad 🌷Finger hearts & K-Drama VIBES
Thankful to be celebrating Asian Pacific American Heritage Month with @statefarm Especially during this crazy time, I’ve been feeling SO PROUD of the Asian American community for coming together to support each other. Lately I’ve found myself appreciating the blessings to have the career I have and being able to connect to others in a way that didn’t exist when I was growing up. Would I be brave enough to stand up for myself without a whole village behind me experiencing the same difficulties? For the sake of my younger self, I need to be a face and a voice that IS vocal about embracing and navigating the Asian American landscape when hardships come into play.
My Korean American heritage makes up such a huge part of who I am, and I’m so humbled at the opportunity to share that with you guys ❤️
I just released a new video up on the channel now where I dive into this topic!
Can’t wait to share little celebrations of our culture this month! #APAVoices
Seriously though, do you think they will ever add finger hearts to the emoji list? 🤔
frmheadtotoe To my beautiful Omma, you bring life and joy to everyone around you. You’re the first to serve others with the many skills of your hands from incredible meals, to sewing, to floral arrangements and are so giving without even being asked. You boast about my accomplishments (to others of course, not to my face 😉) and I’m so grateful you raised me and @linda.justme to know our value and to be fearless, confident women even in the face of immigrating to a new country in your 20’s, not knowing the language or having others to rely on.
Thank you for being an endless sacrificer and the best halmeoni to your grandkids who truly adore you. 엄마 사랑해요!
frmheadtotoe 🎈Happy Mother’s Day!!!🎈
I’m filled with more love and an insane amount of gratefulness from being a mother this year than ever before. All this time spent with both Aria and Ezra at home has been a mixture of being a cleaning machine, human jungle gym, and tantrum counselor 🤪 but I’ve also never felt so deeply connected to them as well. Every excited good morning hug, every grin and kiss for no reason, every time Ezra says “Omma, I yuh-you!”, every time Aria tells me I look like a princess when I wear my bath robe makes me want to make a mental record of all these precious days we wouldn’t normally have gotten to share.
Thank you Aria and Ezra for making me a mother not just physically but mentally, emotionally, and spiritually as well. I gave you life but you give me life everyday and I’m so blessed to have you close to me! 🙏

frmheadtotoe Making all my K-drama family picture dreams come true 🤣
(BTW on a scale of hard to impossible, how difficult is it to get everyone to look the same direction and smile for a family photo? Ez gets a pass because he’s so cute 🤷🏻♀️)
frmheadtotoe I had a full on anxiety attack 2 days ago because the family was sick again, Aria had a bad sleep regression and was climbing out of her crib many times a night and I only got 2 hour chunks of sleep. To be honest, I’ve been having a hard time looking at instagram lately seeing everyone’s epic recaps of the year and their resolutions for 2019 when I feel like I’m just struggling to sleep without nosebleeds or to make it to the next day when I’m running on empty. So for my last post of the year instead of a pretty outfit with the perfect makeup, fireworks, or high heels, it’s just me as I really am.
2018 was tough with all the growing pains of loving greater than ever before but I hope I can let the little moments in 2019 fill my heart daily because these are the moments I don’t want to forget ❤️
P.S. If you suffer from any type of depression or anxiety, try not to take this season with too much pressure. It’s just another day but even taking one step is a step ahead of where you were. We can get through this together 💪
frmheadtotoe When you want a cute family photo but one is running laps and the other is passed out, so you pose as a couple and are photobombed (but it couldn’t be more perfect) 🤣🤷🏻♀️

frmheadtotoe Bundles of joy 🤗
Truthfully, this newborn stage with a toddler is absolute insanity but I already feel like our family wasn’t complete until Ezra joined us. I thank God everyday that Ez is a chill boy because his sister sure likes to run up and down the hall like thunder and scream at the top of her lungs. When Aria was a newborn we would tiptoe around her naps trying so hard not to wake her, but with Ezra we are just like 🤷🏻♀️ 🤣
How many kids do you guys have/want and how was the transition for you from 1 to 2? I would love your advice on juggling a full house!
frmheadtotoe Are you happy? Today, like many days, I asked Aria this question and she gleefully replied, “YES!” Unlike past days though, she asked me the question back. I was a little stunned because I realized I don’t really ask myself this question much. Am I happy? Do I really consider my own happiness very often? As someone who loves caring for others, my priority is often making sure those around me are happy instead.
I looked at her grinning face, gave her a big hug and replied, “Yes, I’m happy.” 🥰
I will be endlessly impressed by the wisdom we can learn from confident little girls.
frmheadtotoe Aria had a fever and Ezra can’t stay awake for long, but her stunned reaction telling me how pretty I looked (“Omma ippuh!” while touching my red cheeks 😭) and Ezzie being the cutest in his last minute DIY togepi costume made everything sooo worth it! I love dressing up and I hope they have as much fun being in costume for each future Halloween to come as I had growing up 🎃👻👩🏻🎤
