(This series is inspired by Holistic Mama’s Joy Pockets, so in keeping with the spirit of things I am changing the series name from “This Week in Gratitude” to…originally enough…”Joy Pockets”.)

a sculpted parade of Korean zodiac characters

seeing my niece & nephew in Mickey Mouse hats on Skype

seeing things in a new light

saturated fat

the hottest shower I can stand

whispering with Eric about our future

unexpected chats, voicemails and notes from friends back home

ahhhhh – back in Pyeongtaek

lights out at 9pm
