A Monk’s Life: Not the Life for Me

Early January, I lived like a monk and experienced a templestay with my friend, Crystal. It is a highly recommended activity when in Korea and both of us had been interesting in doing one since we arrived.

Moving has been on my mind with our impending move back to the states. Nothing about moving excites me. Although, our move out of Korea shouldn’t be too bad. We will be discarding the majority of the clothes that we brought because our washing machine is an asshole. Our washing machine has one cycle, and … Continue reading

Goodbye Fall, Hello Winter

Goodbye Fall, Hello Winter

It isn’t officially winter, according to the calendar. But when snow starts falling, it’s winter! So I say farewell to fall with some of my favorite photos of the prismatic foliage. And greetings to winter. I look forward to capturing more of you.

Jeonju: Love at first sight

Jeonju: Love at first sight

I’m in love with Jeonju! It has been on my radar for a while now, but it wasn’t until this past weekend’s visit when we were properly introduced. On Sunday, we traveled back to the time 757 CE, and walked the quaint streets of this incredibly, charming Hanok village. Having 1250 years of history under … Continue reading
