just BE with them

Once upon a time, I followed this crazy, creative beauty on Instagram.  She is wicked talented, has like a million followers and posts the most beautiful, inspirational things!  After I moved to Seoul, I suddenly recognized the settings in her photos as places I was newly exploring… and then discovered WE LIVED IN THE SAME CITY!!  […]

noryangjin fish market in seoul

A friend called early one morning, to see if we wanted to join him for a quick run to the local fish market.  He is an amazing chef and always serving up the best seafood dishes so we had to go and meet his dealer, maybe try a little for ourselves.  Of course, I went […]

Seoul Searching

When I used to daydream about all the beautiful places to travel and amazing places to see, my mind had not yet experienced an Asian culture.  It was like a color I had never seen and couldn’t even imagine.  In some ways, I feel like I finally have eyes to see. I have only been […]

beef and leaf

I met Korean BBQ today.  I think we are in love.  Unfortunately, I think I met the best Korean BBQ place in Itaewon (or so most review sites say) so it’s either all down hill from here or I need to be gracious to all others?  Maple Leaf in Itaewon drew me in on the […]

Itaewon Seoul

Our new home city.  Seoul, South Korea.  After being here for two weeks and ONLY focusing on setting up house, we celebrated the completion by exploring one of the nearby neighborhoods.  I might have squealed with joy as we walked through the gate on post and entered ACTUAL Seoul (base feels like America to me) and […]

there were no snakes

while I have always loved hiking…it’s become more obsessive lately.  maybe it is due to the fact that my kids are now all able to actually hike without being carried.  maybe it is because we have done a bit more exploring these last few months and I find myself wanting to see the scenic views […]

oh darling...let's be adventurers

It’s time for us to move again!  While we have absolutely LOVED our time here in Germany, the job needs us elsewhere.  And so….we are off… TO KOREA!  South.  In case you lost your marbles or haven’t seen the news.  Ever. That is right! Come the end of this summer, we will be off to […]

have kids, will travel

we have been traveling with our kids a bit. at times it is stressful but more times than not, it is just amazing and we know the trip wouldn’t be the same without them! and more than any treasure we bring home, i love our photo memories the most.  just had to share some of […]

bridges and fishes

it was off to the side of the road, across a sunrise lit field and seemingly not any more interesting than all the other rad bridges we had passed so far that morning.  with a meet up time for fishing with friends, it was a quick weight and balance of ‘good idea and be a […]


meet burg hohenzollern.  about an hour south of stuttgart and an AWESOME place to visit for your castle fix.  since my dear, sweet lindsay and her son are visiting, we made a morning trip out.  turns out, with five kids under the age of nine in tow, you can spend the whole day here.  worth […]
