The Day has arrived!!

so, the day is here. I'm sitting in the airport in Seoul, hoping the next 20 hours pass quickly. I'll board the plane to Beijing in about an hour, and then it's a 5 hour layover there, then off to Chicago!! My anxiety is pretty bad right now, hoping to make it through the flights. May take some medicine to knock me out!!

There are no words to describe my excitment!! I can't wait to come home and see everyone, most importantly my family and new niece!! Our family will be complete again, for about a week, until I'm back in the Korea.

My 25th birthday was great, Thursday night we went out for some drinks, and the bar sang Happy Birthday at midnight. Friday was an easy day at work, we didnt teach classes, just had a fun game day in celebration of the Korean Holiday coming up. Chuseok is like Thanksgiving, everyone goes home and visits family. Then in my afternoon classes we had tests so no teaching either! Went out for Thai food, and then to the local watering hole for some drinks. One of the teachers has finished her contract, so we had a joint going away/bday party. All in all a great bday, and now I get the best present ofall, going home!!

Can't wait to see everyone!! T-minus 22 hours and counting!!

She's here! She's here! Sadie Jane is here!!

well, not HERE, here of course, considering here is South Korea!

But as I'm sure you all know, Joe and Gail welcomed little Sadie Jane last week. I hear she's just beautiful, and I've gotten to see a few pics, but I'm really looking forward to seeing her in real life and kissing her a lotttt!!

Things have been going as normal here, work during the week, days passing quicker than ever, and then fun things on the weekend. This Sat my small group from church will be hanging out to celebrate both my and another girls birthday. Can't believe I will be 25!!! ahhh....

but then the next day...I'm heading home! So excited, and I try not to think about it too much so it passes quickly, but I can't wait to go home and see everyone! It's gonna be a whirlwind week.

The weather's been cooling down...not much, but a bit. today was 80, but at least not humid and muggy!! And it was super sunny. Hoping that by the time I come back from the US it will have cooled down more!!

Can't wait to see all of you in a week and a half!!!
