One year later

Last year for the first time we visited the Garden of the Morning Calm; beautifully established ornamental grounds set in the hills of Gapyeong-gun. Thinking back to that visit, I was just about ready to fly back to NZ a month earlier than Mark in order to prepare for baby Hub’s arrival. It was our last chance to document our time as expectant parents.

So it was so fantastic to take Isaiah back to the same places and think back about all the changes and journeys we have gone through together since then. It surely has been remarkable.

It was an early start to the day, venturing there with a large group of our colleagues and friends, to miss the crowds that come in the afternoon. We enjoyed the freshness and space that we miss so much when we think of home.

Isaiah is already such an outdoor boy, as I have shared before, taking in the surrounds and even noticing insects and other things around the place.

This unique tree is called the ‘Millennium Juniper’. It is a one of kind shape and commands respect from it’s own view point. I love the contrast of deep green and the bright blue of the sky.

It’s never boring to look across colorful landscape and breathe in air so fresh and clear. We definitely want to make it back in the spring when all the delicate blossoms signal the change of season that is the most dramatic in this country. We’re looking forward to it already!

A day that wasn’t expected

Day 15: A Day in the life (include photos from throughout your typical day – this could be “a photo an hour” if you’d like)

As my title suggests this post does not depict a ‘typical’ day for me. Today, our baby Hub woke after having immunization shots yesterday to being really upset coupled with low range fever. Our poor boy. This meant that we did not prepare and leave for school today but I stayed back to tend to our boy who never wanted to be put down. He is on the mend but here is some of what happened today…

My first Mother’s Day

A quick little something from baby Hub…


My first Mother’s day.

Today was an emotional roller coaster to say the least. My poor hubby having to navigate my highs and lows. It still feels so new to me, this mummy biz.

Here are some snaps from my iphone. It was a great to be with my boys and just enjoy the outdoors and our little man especially. We celebrated at a pancake restaurant and then took a walk in the central park of Bundang.


Hubby, thank you for loving and encouraging me. I am so proud to be mummy to our precious boy, my darling joy ~ Isaiah. He is my greatest achievement!
