Do you remember when the only requirement for friendship was living on the same street? When I was a kid, all of my friends lived in my neighborhood. I miss that as an adult. Especially now that I am a mom, I would love to have friends on my street for stroller walks and play dates.

We may not be neighbors, but I think we can create a community with that kind of atmosphere.

When my daughter was a newborn I had so many questions at 3am. I spent a lot of time on Google. My goal is to create a place for moms to find some answers and encouragement. Feel free to leave comments or ask questions.

I have been an elementary school teacher, a reading tutor, and a children’s ministry coordinator. I also have a few Kindle books published. Most of my earlier posts are geared toward new moms and talk about things like breastfeeding , cloth diapering, and what you really need for your baby at different ages. But as Clarissa has grown, my interests have changed. You will find posts about gluten free cookingteaching kids about Jesus and our travel adventures. I am sure whatever is on my heart will find its way to the blog.

My husband’s dream since he got out of the Air Force in 2007 has been to move to South Korea. In February 2015, God gave him his heart’s desire. So my husband, daughter, and I moved to South Korea. We really do feel like God has called us here for this place and this time, though we don’t know why yet.

I have really enjoyed meeting new people and getting to know a new culture. My Korean definitely needs a lot of work! But moving here has helped me to realize a dream too. For the first time, I get be a stay at home mom.

Another thing that is big on our hearts lately is adoption. We do plan to expand our family through adoption in the next few years, but it is expensive. So you will notice that I have added some affiliate links to the blog. If you are excited about something you read on the blog and decide to buy it, I will make a small commission on your purchase at no extra cost to you. In this way, we can work toward our dream of adoption by telling you about things I was going to write about anyway.

Happy reading!

Love,
Suzanne

  1. Hi! I came across your blog while trying to find information on gluten free dining in s korea. If you have a list of g-free friendly places you’d be willing to pass along I would appreciate it. We are moving to Pyeongtaek, and would like to know more about that area and Seoul.

    • Hi! So we were in Daegu for 2.5 years and have only been in Pyeongtaek for about 3 months. I am gluten sensitive and not celiac. We eat Thai a lot though I am starting to wonder about the sauce for my meal. I don’t get sick but really sleepy when we eat there lately. Usually Korean BBQ type places are fine because you make your own and decide if you want to add sauce. Shabu shabu as well because you cook it yourself. But we have not found those places here yet. If I come up with a list, I will let you know. On post is hard. Sometimes I will do taco bell nachos. There is a sit down restaurant but we have not eaten there yet. Osan has a chili’s so there are options there for salads. There is an Indian place near osan that is good as well. Maybe we can hang out once you get here?

    I just wanted to hello to you all, because I find this strange. I just talked to you and your little girl at CH check-in yesterday! I was the man on crutches!
    I was looking up info on car repair and clicked on your site. 🙂
    I said to myself…Hey! I just saw these guys yesterday(Tuesday). I know these guys! 🙂
    You and your husband have beautiful kids!

    It’s great you are teaching your daughter about Jesus!

    God bless you all.

    Dave
