I heart memories

Call me a hoarder. I still have birthday cards from fourth grade. Yes, it is THAT bad. I just can’t get myself to part ways with some of the cards and letters I’ve gotten in the past from the most important people in my life… sometimes even the not so important people in my life…. so what??

If I wasn’t such a freak, I wouldn’t have all the priceless memories to look back on.

Some memorable responses to our wedding invitation:


from Bori when she was away in Denmark


Beautiful artwork by my MOH


the ever so hilarious Hahn brother


had a tough time understanding this one.. but that's just yeba. heh ❤


words of wisdom from mr. KOm's roommate at the time


sweet and simple ❤


from the one who insists that he is the "glue" that bonds the friendships of a group of college friends. we usually just let him believe it..


lovely drawing of chris walking down northern blvd with a lamp that I once picked out for his then new apartment. he said he'd give it to us as a wedding present... he lied.


text: I would appreciate it if you could seat me next to pretty femails I don't know. Preferably marriage potential ones. (My date for the wedding fell though) Thanks! DC


from the colorful works of SPak~*


this particular gentleman was NOT invited to the bachelor party.


one of my favortes from one of my favorites.


surprisingly the only one of 2 people who didn't write their name on the response (look below)


one, he thought he'd be the only Mr. Kim at a korean wedding. and two, he wrote that he's bringing 2 guests!!!? WHO ARE YOU!? 2 years later, I still don't know.


what a work of art by EL!!

I rest my case. hoarder or not, I am convinced that memories like these are utterly worth the clutter (even worth all the complaints from Mr. KOm)

mr. KOm and I just came back from an amazing trip to Paris, France. Strolling through the Louvre made me think of a project I did with my kiddies in preschool last year for graduation. This “little” project turned out to be a lot more work than anticipated. I had the kids view several paintings by famous artists, like Van Gogh, Monet, etc.. A few of which I did see in Paris. They then used their own imagination to paint their own interpretation of the works of art.

In the style of Piet Mondrian:

et voila!

In the style of Claude Monet:

Et Voila!

In the style of Josef Albers:

Et Voila!

And my absolute favorite were the self portraits in the style of Leonardo Da Vinci

Et Voila!

I also had them do random drawings and stuck them on the ceiling of the classroom as our very own Sistine Chapel. Too bad I failed to catch a photo of it. Maybe I’ll try it again with my 3rd graders! I’m sure they’re bound to yield interpretations that are a bit more.. ahem… accurate.
