About Me, More About Me

A Surprise Mother’s Day Visitor

It’s the kind of thing you have to see to believe: waking up to the sound of a mysterious knock on your door; turning over in bed because you assume someone has the wrong apartment; hearing the knock again and begrudgingly rolling out of bed; opening the door ready to give some random Korean person a piece your mind, when suddenly… you see your mom standing right in front of you.

Crazy right?! And on Mother’s Day weekend of all times! I was shocked and overjoyed, to say the least! If I were someone just reading this post I wouldn’t believe it either. So while my mom and I were out making the most of our short weekend together in Korea, I took pictures every step of the way as proof of all the fun things we did together! Below are the highlights. Hover over or click on each picture for details!


All jokes aside, my mom truly is with me in spirit every day as I go through this adventure of teaching in Korea. I wouldn’t be the person I am today if it weren’t for all of the love and support she’s given me so unconditionally all these years.

Thank you, Mom. I miss you so much and I look forward to our next REAL trip together, where ever that may be! You are always in my heart and thoughts, and I love you more than I can say. Happy Mother’s Day!


Mom on a mountain and in my heart
