Annyeong-haseyo!

Don’t you love last-minute, get-up and go kinda plans? They are the absolute best. No thinking, no fuss, no digging into details – everyone just appears and have fun. That’s how my in-laws roll, or how I successfully roll with my in-laws when it comes to family events. The more we plan ahead, the more […]
