Hello friends! I've been in New York this week for the last stop of our book tour and catching up with dear friends in my home away from home away from home. I love city life and will always be a city girl at heart. Today, I leave you with this photo {from another great big city} while we were walking the streets of Ginza {in Tokyo} last month. At some point during the day in Ginza, the traffic stopped, the streets closed off to cars, and people were able to walk freely on the streets. It felt so peaceful, yet eerie, at the same time…almost like a movie set…as if Times Square had no cars on the street. Have a wild and wonderful weekend and see you back here on Monday!

{PS. A HUGE thanks to everyone who came out to our New York book party last night! It was an awesome turnout, and I can't thank you enough for all your love and support. Photos from the event to come soon!}

  9. Hi Joy, I’ve been following your blog for a few weeks and I absolutely love your work and your creative eye – please come to DC and do a book signing there! Your book is a great resource for aspiring freelancers and it’s great to see another asian-american female work her magic. Thanks, I’ll be reading :)!

  17. I hope the end of your book tour went well and that you had fun in the big apple! I also love that Tokyo shot-it must be so rare to capture an empty street scene in that bustling city!
