Although there are a million and one things to do over the next seven weeks before we move to Korea I am consciously trying to set aside time to enjoy some Portland favorites with the boys. Earlier this week I surprised the boys with an after school trip to the zoo. It was a beautiful crisp fall afternoon and we had fun exploring the relatively empty zoo grounds. My boys always remind me that simple pleasures are the best and that taking little breaks is good for the soul. Wishing you a weekend of simple pleasures!

WOW :D You are moving to Korea! I'm so happy right now. I am living in Europe, Romania and I've just finished my 3years of uninversity. Right now I am trying to realize what I should do in the future. I'm a little bit undecided so I've take a breake. I like your blog but before that I love that you're korean :D I love Korea! I fell in love with Korea because of the historical drama, Dae Jang Geum. That was the start of my love for Korea. Time has passed by and my love for Korea is growing more and more. I love the culture, the tradition, traditional cloths, the food, the music, the architecture and because of that I've decided to learn korean. So last year in september it was my first meet with the korean language:) I've started on my own but luckly, maybe destiny, in february this year i've met a korean family that teaches us korean so I can practice korean in a professional way. I hope someday I'll be in Korea. Maybe studying korean art(i would love to) maybe just visiting , but I really hope to get there soon because it's one of my dreams, that kind of dream that you can't escape from until it's fulfill.:D
Don't know if you are going to read all the text because it's really long and you are really busy these days, but what I've wanted to say is that maybe your post,writing about your move to Korea, it's a sign for me:D that sooner or later I will get to meet Korea and fulfill my dream ^^ maybe marring there :))) hahaha joking:D or not because I really love the traditional korean wedding:D ^3^
I wish you and your family all the best. Good time in Korea and let us know how are you experiencing all the thing there. I look forward to your fresh posts:D Hugs from Bucharest ^^ Simona (sorry for my gramatical mistakes ^-^)
