We’re HOME!!!

About 24 hours after we left Gwangju, South Korea – we arrived in Portland OR.  A long trip, but everything went smoothly and there wasn’t anything to complain about.  All four of our checked items even arrived into PDX on our flight!

My mom and dad transported us quickly to our American food of choice – The Hamburger! 

It has been great to be back in Oregon.  I have missed the expansive blue sky, our family and friends, our house here in Rufus that seems so HUGE in comparison to our Korean shoebox.  (We have gone from 1 window to 10 windows.) 

Right after I returned I went to my cousin’s baby shower.  It was wonderful to see family and be a part of the celebration.


Congratulations Brook (and Adam – not seen in picture).


Elise & Brook


Mom and Ita (my grandma)


Pile of pretty-in-pink gifts – yes, it is a girl!


My Great-Aunt Billie and Aunt Nadine


Shortly after our good friend Sandy came up to Rufus to celebrate her recent graduation from college and our return.


We re-enacted the ceremony with my gift (cleverly wrapped like a diploma)!!



My first pie back – Rhubarb, Strawberry, Raspberry. Yum!


Dad BBQ’d his famous chicken
