How Sweet It Is

by Jenny on May 23, 2012

We finally made it home yesterday after 25 hours of travel from South Korea to Atlanta to Baltimore. We spent the evening with some family, friends and Telli which was exactly what we needed after being away for so long. We enjoyed dinner with my parents, sister and brother-in-law and then retreated back to our house for a little time with friends who stopped by to welcome us home.

And then 31 hours after our last alarm wake up call in Daejeon, we finally called it a night and crashed hard in our own bed in our own house. Amazing.


Thanks to my mom stocking our pantry and fridge with some of our favorite groceries, we were able to start this morning off with breakfast in our own kitchen!

She obviously didn’t forget to throw some goodies in our freezer either!

What to have for breakfast was a no brainer for me – something I have been craving since early on when I had gotten to Korea – an English muffin egg sandwich.

One fried egg, cheddar cheese, turkey bacon and blueberry jam.

Welcome home!

I savored every last bite!

For the rest of the day we plan to unpack, run errands and just get our life in Baltimore back in order. Beginning with these not-intimidating-at-all piles of laundry!

And we also have a lot of missed time to make up for with this Monster!

He’s such a little man now – we can hardly believe it!


What is the first thing you do when you get back from an extended trip somewhere or vacation?

First of all, i would like to say sorry instead of rude Korean who are big fan of the baseball. I saw your story from internet news and most Korean who read this news felt not only like me but also blame rube blogger. Im really shamed that im living with him in Korea as same nationality. As you may kow, Korean is likely to be emotional person by nature. So you understand this event and do not dump memory of living in Korea.
I wish that Your husband will be good player and MLB player.

He peed all over the floor when he saw us! And then wouldn’t leave Brian’s side. I feel so badly for him that Brian had to leave again this morning…he’s walking around looking sad and lost! :(
