'tis the season!

I think every day should be 'Tis the Season.
I think we'd smile more often.

Below you will find various pictures of recent moments that have made me smile.


It snowed while I was home. As you can see, I was working really hard to help my mom scrape off the car.



I can't even find the right words to describe the Thanksgiving feast. I had 3 meals of leftovers before I had to come back to Korea.


I brought home a can of beondegi. That's 'silkworm larvae' and it's a favorite snack here in Korea. And Jen, my friend, was brave enough to taste it. I'm really proud of her!


Here's a picture of beondegi. Yum! right?


I don't think she liked it.




I was sad to leave home so soon. I would have liked some more time to relax, visit, take walks, and be with my family.
But there was a brilliant sunrise right as the airplane was taking off.


Here's a picture from the runway.



Today I was wandering around E-dae with a friend and I found this great little shop.



I decorated my apartment.




I lit some candles.



And I made my first batch of Christmas goodness.




What are you smiling about these days?

You are right I didn't like the beondegi very much. It isn't something I would want to eat, well, ever again. And this post made me smile. As well as our time together while you were home. Then there is a cookie exchange this weekend and the thought of decorating and baking for the Christmas season, that makes me smile. So there are just a few examples of what I am smiling about.
