Monday Mornin' Snuggles.September 12, 2016
We spent the morning putting all the pieces of our upcoming trip together-- we've still got a couple of big things to figure out, but we're making progress. I'm the kind of girl who worries about the big things, the little things, and all the things in between. Taylor told me that he's going to worry about most of the big details (to spare my sanity) but that he'll run everything by me and always get my approval seeing as I'm the "korea expert." So we'll see how things end up playing out over the course of the next couple weeks-- but I'm beyond excited.
I think one of the reasons this trip is going to be so special is merely the fact that I've never been in Korea during the Autumn season. "WHAAAAT?" Yeah, that's what most people say-- because the fact that I served an 18 month mission there and yet never spent an Autumn there don't exactly add up. The truth is, I had to come home from my mission early on medical leave-- I spent nine months in Korea before I had an unexpected 3 month "intermission" back home in the states. Fortunately, I was blessed with the opportunity to return to my beloved mission in Korea, but my full mission term ended before the Autumn came.
So this will be the first time I get to experience it in Korea. Not to mention the fact that I'll have my mother and my husband (the two people I've raved about Korea to mercilessly since I returned home) with me for the journey. Just thinking about it turns my stomach into knots and makes my head start spinning. Korea is so underrated. You'll see soon enough.
Here we come, Hanguk!
