Like A Sore Thumb

This is the second post in a row that touches on exercise.  In case you’re worried this is going to become a fitness blog – HA! – I’m fairly confident that this fad will play out as all my previous attempts at fitness have gone.  Cue cycle: get annoyed with excess weight, begin exercise plan, […]

Seriously Quick.

Sky: Theme Thursday

[Cue the part where I apologize for yet again foisting photos of our Philippines vacation upon you.  Next comes the part where you roll your eyes and yawn, but then suddenly remember that we are in the midst of A Big Life Change so you forgive me and scroll down anyway.} I love the sky. […]

Extra! Extra! Read All About It!

The South Korea Darrs have big news.  We’ve been keeping it to ourselves for the last several months, but we couldn’t contain it any more: We are expecting… a transoceanic move! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!  I am so sorry.  Possibly some of you were expecting a big pregnancy announcement and I just couldn’t not play off of that, no matter […]

Boys: Foolishly, when I had only daughters, I really believed boy/girlishness must surely […]

Philippines: Food and Family

Our prayers go out to all Bostonians, their families and friends.  No words can express the sorrow, anger, and confusion appropriate to such an event.  Know that we are all praying for you. I posted this quote on Twitter yesterday before the event, but it seems even more appropriate now so I tweeted it again […]

Philippines: Transportation and Accomodations

I have SO many photos from the last week that there is no way I can share them all.  The last week, however, was really special, so prepare yourself for a few photo-heavy posts this week.  And since I began this blog mostly as a way to journal our experiences here, and most of my […]

Philippines, Part 1 out of 1,000

Y’all. We are back in Korea. Parts of me are very glad (especially the parts that appreciate toilet paper and potable tap water) but I left some of my soul back there. Don’t think I’m the same woman as when I left a week ago. Rest assured that many a Philippines Photo Dump are headed […]
