five weeks of food and fashion in Seoul, Korea 

Hello friends! I hope that everyone had a wonderful summer.

My family and I spent the past 5 weeks in Jeju island and Seoul (in Gangnam) in South Korea.

KOREA~ you treated us so well. 👦🏻👩🏻👧🏻👧🏻❤️
Our time with you was so blissful. Traveling to Seoul was the longest trip I have ever taken and also the most memorable.

We just got back a few days ago.  Thank you for all the sweet messages via social networks and all the pms here wondering where I am.

 I want to apologize for not being able to post on this website for the past month .

I have no excuses but that I put my family first and this trip was a once in a lifetime opportunity!

It was nice to unplug and just concentrate on family.

I am back now though, and better than ever!

Back to normal posting-

I am so thankful for every memory made.

Mornings in jejudo started like this-

and always this too

Namaste.

We hiked Mt. Hallasan as a family. I was so proud of myself and more so the girls for this accomplishment! It is a very difficult hike, but it was the girls who were cheering us on each step of the way!

mosquito and bug repellent disguised as bracelets were a must.

Teddy Bear Museum

Hello Kitty Island in Jejudo- most massive castle full of everything hello kitty I have ever laid eyes on. It was heaven for the girls… and me.
