Currently…Spring is here!

The cherry blossoms have arrived which can only mean one thing…IT’S SPRING!

These past few weeks were busy ones for me.  Last Wednesday was Jasons birthday so I’ve been trying to plan the best 30th birthday for him. We celebrated it this past Saturday and luckily he had a great day!

I organised a scavenger hunt for him. I’ve realized that once we leave Korea in August we’ll never be able to return to all of our “first” places. So his scavenger hunt led him to our first hike, the first place we kissed, we said I love you, our first date, where we met and finally to where he proposed (which is our apartment) where we had a small party with lots of food and drink.

I gave him his first clue of the day and sent him off in a taxi by himself. I could tell that he was a little worried that he would be spending his birthday just walking around by himself. But I had planned on having one of our friends meet him at each place and the day went perfectly! He told me that it was his best adult birthday which was so nice to hear.

I feel so lucky to have such amazing and talented friends! Our friend Ane made this beautiful painting for us.

 

Yesterday myself, Jason and Willy took a walk around our neighborhood to take in the cherry blossoms. It’s crazy because they only last a week or two before they are all blown away so we feel like we need to appreciate them every chance that we get!

We have also been taking some time out over the weekends to relax and enjoy the beautiful weather.

Tomorrow we’ll be going to Jinhae where the biggest cherry blossom festival in Korea is held. The festival doesn’t begin until Wednesday but with our busy schedules and rain forecasted this Friday we decided to go tomorrow before the rain blows them away.

I have been researching other festivals that are coming up in Korea over the next couple of months and we are hoping to make it to a few of them. I really love this time of year!

We also bought a new tent and are excited for that to arrive and for us to take some camping trips again soon.

We have a short trip to Seoul planned this Sunday and Monday as we have our first appointment with the American embassy for my Green Card application. I’m so excited/nervous about this next step that we are taking.

So there are plenty of fun stuff coming up this Spring that I’m excited to share with you.

    1. Thank you, I was hoping to get some nice photos but unfortunately it’s raining today and it’s supposed to continue for the rest of the week so we’ll see. Fingers crossed!
