Friday Favorites

by Grace Ko


This week was an important one. Not necessarily because of a special occasion, or an event on my calendar. But because I felt a shift in my heart, one that went from questions and doubts to an attitude of gratitude and appreciation of "here". It was a subtle happening. I was walking down the street and felt the slight breeze in the air. It was refreshing and I thought in my heart, "I'm thankful for spring. I'm thankful to be here." 

It has taken me five months to become adjusted to life here in Seoul, in Korea. And I can't promise that I won't still have moments of questioning, of doubting, of missing. But it's all about the shift, about the shift in mindset (*Cue Meghan Trainor's "All about that bass"*). 

Happy Friday to you all, near and far!

 Y is always a favorite of mine. But his favorites are these gigantic "Family Size" bags of chips all for him.

 Natto: I do admit. It's an acquired taste but it's a recent favorite of mine.
