spotted

found some wisteria (i think?) blooming on my walk at lunch.  isn’t it divine? i think i’d like a yard full of wisteria when we have our own place.  photo IMG_5068_zpsygrtmhrp.jpg

how i pressured my husb into being my tutor back in 2011 after my previous tutor returned to korea.  he really didn’t want to do it, but eventually he caved.  i agreed to buy him lunch once a week in exchange for korean lessons. i’m not sure why i was so persistent, but i guess it ended up working out well for us in the end✨

i can’t really pinpoint when i stopped sleeping through the night but it’s been years.  sometimes i sleep talk and sometimes i’ve found myself walking around the apartment awake enough to realize i’m moving but not fully awake enough to know why.

in addition, my temperature changes a few times throughout the night, so i often wake up wearing more or less clothing than i went to bed with. sometimes, apparently, my mister helps me along.  i’m quite lucky to have found such a caring person.

004. first meeting

jake and i met in college.  i asked my friend to study together in the library one day, and she invited him to join us.  my first impression of him was that he seemed nice but wasn’t quite my style.  he wasn’t interested in me because i’m american.  we started dating about eight months later.

i haven’t posted much since last year because a lot of things happened in november that just brought me down.  one of those things was an abnormal lump i found in my breast.  i drew this picture to help process some uncertain feelings i had while waiting to get the results of a needle biopsy.  luckily, everything turned out fine but it was scary.

also the hospital garment reminded me of 한복 so that helped a little bit ♡

my husband goes by jake at work and with my grandfather, and i never really know what to call him when i’m talking about him because i just call him 여보 at home and i have mixed feelings about adopting english names but i’m just going to go with jake here.  anyway we just passed our unofficial third anniversary…and things have just gotten better with time. more complicated and more challenging, but definitely better ♡
