Why I started this blog

napa pic of kidsI wanted to start a blog for almost 6 years. Whenever I got the nerve to begin, some life event occurred and it had to be delayed. Momentum would be lost and I had to talk myself into starting again. Yes, this took all those years. Underneath those life distractions was the nagging insecurity that no one would read my blog or someone would disagree with something I wrote and tell me off in the comments section.

I realized that a perfect time or perfect circumstance will never occur. But the persistent nagging insecurity plagued me and I would talk myself out of it. Now I am learning to quiet the negative thoughts in my head and to just move forward. I realized that if I am not proactive, I would still be blog-less this time next year.

With much thought and contagious encouragement from a special friend, I decided to plunge into these unknown waters. The main motivation started with the loneliness I felt in raising two small kids. I read lots of other mom’s blogs and heart blogs; they were comforting, informative, challenging, and encouraging. However in my naivete I could not find an experience just like mine. That was a serious duh? moment for me. Of course I would not.

Everyone has a unique, personal story to tell specific to each person’s life. My story is about me, but just maybe I could help someone in similar circumstances or encourage someone in their life challenges.

My story is about me as a Korean-American homeschooling mom of 2 kids, dealing with the medical challenges of my 4 year old daughter’s congenital heart condition called Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS), trying to help my 6 year old son and his sister to have a fun childhood despite being home so much, crafting and building Lego with my kids, aiming to be a good wife (on most days) to my husband of 11 years, and seeking God in all my experiences. One other thing about me is my fascination with beautiful paper, reading reviews about cosmetics, and looking at pretty clothes. I’m no fashionista but I do love to appreciate beautiful clothes and its workmanship

This is an exciting journey to embark for me, and I hope you will journey along with me.
