It's here! It's here!

My blog book arrived in the mail today at my school and I am so excited about it! It turned out really beautifully, if I don't say so myself!

Printed on the back cover:

"This book is a memoir of my 1st year living abroad, teaching English in S. Korea. During the year, I traveled through Korea, Japan, Thailand, Hong Kong, and Indonesia, learned a new language, lost love and found new love, ate foods I never imagined I would ever try, walked and rode a bus to work, attended funerals, weddings and birthday parties, had a beloved pet die in my arms, hiked gorgeous mountains, shared soup with strangers, found a love for writing and photography, laughed at Konglish T-shirts, bought my food from outdoor farmers markets, learned new games, wore slippers at work, fell in love with coffee, realized I'm great with kids, and ultimately found myself in all the adventure!"
Here are some random pages for you to get a little peak at:

I'm hoping this book remains in my family for generations to come, and is a way for my great great grandchildren to get to know their grandma Jillers! I can't thank Aaron enough for this incredibly thoughtful birthday gift!


  1. It looks amazing! I was inspired by your gift idea to print Mark's old blog for his birthday. His isn't nearly as amazing as yours but fun none the less. I think it is such a great treasure to have your thoughts & memories to pass along for years to come. :)

  2. That is an awesome gift. Hope all is well, Jill

  3. Lyndsea - Thank you! :)

    Jill - I'm so glad you were inspired! Mark is going to love it!

    Adam - Things are really good with me! How are things with you? Are you engaged yet?! :)
